YNS April New Release Hop!

April 2014 hop badge
Hello and welcome to the April Your Next Stamp New Release Blog Hop!  We have some ADORABLE new stamps and some really fun new dies (that I designed!!) for you this month so hop along with us and check them out!
 
The hop begins on my blog, so grab your beverage and/or snack of choice and settle down for a fun hop! You have through Tuesday, April 29th to leave comments on all of the DT blogs for your chance to win a $20 YNS Gift Certificate-WooHoo!
 
For my project today,  I played with one of my new die sets – Flower Fun Three:
 
WhatNotSentimentsTwo2
As you can see, I cut the outline die out of gold and black cardstock.  I filled in the black outline with the gold petals and layered the gold outline behind it, slightly offset.  I finished it off with a Black Gumdrop (the largest size of gumdrops are perfect for these flowers!) and a sentiment from Whatnot Sentiments Two.  Finally, I added the panel over a couple die cuts from the Fancy Vine die set.  BTW, I cut the panel with the Journaled Weekly die set – the journal card is the perfect layering panel for an A2 sized card.
