We've got lots of new and exciting stuff to show you these next few days!  I hope you're as excited as we are!  Today we're introducing two new stamp sets, all of the new dies and the new Project Pantry!

The first project I have for you uses the Make It Amazing set along with the new London Market Project PantryMake It Amazing was illustrated by Nancy McKinney for the Whimsical Wishes line.  It is a full size set with 19 images and sentiments and is just beautiful!  I started by stamping the flowers and foliage onto Choice Buttercream cardstock.  I then stamped the large butterfly on another piece of cardstock and die cut it using the coordinating Elegant Butterflies Die and attached it to the flower stamped panel with foam tape.  The sentiment was stamped on cardstock from the London Market Project Pantry and then it was die cut using the coordinating Frame It Up 3 Die

I die cut a fancy buckle to thread the ribbon through using the Fancy Buckles Die Set and attached a button over top.  To finish my card off, I added some glitter to the butterfly. 

My second project today uses the new Fruity Friends set.  Fruity Friends was concepted by our very own Wanda Guess (yay Wanda!!--I LOVE this set!) and illustrated by Emily Burger for the Embracing Grace line.  It is a full size set containing 20 images and sentiments and simply ADORABLE!  For my card I used some papers from the Happy Day Collection from Simple Stories.  I colored the adorable little watermelon in with Copic markers.  The sentiment was stamped onto cardstock die cut with the Take Note Frame 2 Die. This set is perfect for fun cards in which you need a punny sentiment! 

Be sure to see what the rest of the Baker's Dozen has to show you today!  Stop back tomorrow for more sneak peeks!  Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
