Today I am sharing four cards using 2017 Anniversary Release stamp sets. Here is my first card. I used our new release stamp Beautiful butterflies 2Beautiful butterflies 3 and Brushed you. To start off I stamped butterfly images from Beautiful butterflies 2Beautiful butterflies 3 using our couture color inks: Italian Denim dye ink, Bright emerald ink, Pink derby dye ink, and Beach blondie ink on the A2 sized some white cardstock panel. Then I stamped a word “you” from Brushed you stamp set using Noir Dye ink on the panel. After that I applied white pen around the word for standing out well against the stamped background. Next I stamped a sentiment from Brushed you stamp set with our withe pigment ink ( Hampton White Pigment ink ) on the black cardstock. Then I cut it in a banner and adhered it on the card.




Here is my second card using Beautiful butterflies 1 stamp set and Brushed hugs using a no-line watercolor technique . To start off I stamped butterfly images using a light color  Distress ink “Scattered Straw” on A2 sized watercolor paper  penal and then I colored images using no-line coloring technique. After that I stamped a sentiment fromBrushed hugs stamp set using Noir Dye ink. Lastly I applied white pen around the word for standing out well against the stamped background.




Here is my next card using 2017 Anniversary Release stamp sets Beautiful butterflies 1, Beautiful butterflies 2,Beautiful butterflies 3, and Brushed love stamp set. To start off I stamped small sized butterfly images from  Beautiful butterflies 1, Beautiful butterflies 2,Beautiful butterflies 3 with couture inks: Bright Emerald DyeBeach Blondie Dye,  Hollywood Star Dye on the A2 sized white cardstock penal. And then I stamped a girl image from City Girls: Retail Therapy stamp set with Noir Dye ink  on another white cardstock and used coordinating dies to cut the girl. Next I stamped the word “love” from Brushed love stamp set with Noir Dye on the stamped paper and I stamped a sentiment from incentive stamp Flutter mini stamp set using Noir Dye. Lastly I adhered the girl on the penal.




Here is my last card for today. I stamped the oscar award trophy image from Oscar stamp set using  Warm Hazelnut Dye, Found Topaz Dye and Noir Dye on the some white cardstock and then I fussy cut the trophy.
