the roses card

For this card I used the Rose Flurries 3D Die Set( ALTN | SBC | SSS ) . For all the flowers I used the Shades of Purple cardstock set and for the leaves the two darkest shades of Green Meadow.

For the lovely detail in the background I used the Dotted Scales Debossing Cover Die( ALTN | SBC | SSS )

the wild rose card

For this flower I used the Wild Rose 3D Die Set( ALTN | SBC | SSS ). For the flower I used the Summer Afternoon gradient cardstock set and for the leaves the Green Meadow.

For the background I used the Dotted Swirls Debossing Cover Die( ALTN | SBC | SSS ) which adds a beautiful detail and is my favorite out of all the cover dies.

the peony card

For this gorgeous flower I used the Peony Dream 3D Die Set( ALTN | SBC | SSS ). For the flower I used the Cherry Blossom Gradient cardstock set and the Sea shore for the leaves.

For this background I used the Party Banner Die Set( ALTN | SBC ) to create an interesting layer.

    The cards are lovely – and that cardstock really makes them shine. I’ve got both the sets that you used, and have been frustrated in trying to get colors layered together that look good. Looks like I’ll be getting this cardstock…I’ll finally be able to make something I’m pleased with out of those beautiful dies and stamps!

    These flowers are so pretty! I watched your video while walking on my treadmill. It was such a neat idea to lay the flowers out after cutting and immediately glued together.
