Beautiful Inspiration...

Today we are previewing a new stamp and coordinating die set called Better Together, a lovely floral set that works well colored, or just stamped on cardstock and patterned paper like I did on this first one!
The background here is made with the new Leaf & Sprig Frames, which you can use individually, but I kept them all together and just embossed the cardstock with all of them. The yellow frame was cut with the new Fill in the Blank dies, and the sentiment was stamped and embossed with red embossing powder. I need to remember to use colored embossing powder more often!
I Can't Thank You Enough card:
STAMPS: Better Together
INK: Versamark
PAPER: Sheer Basics Vellum, white, Lavender Moon pattner pack, 
Harvest Gold pattern pack, Pure Poppy, Aqua Mist
DIES: Better Together 
OTHER:

This card was stamped with Better Together also, with no coloring. 
I stamped the sentiment in the center and embossed it with white embossing powder, then stamped the florals in the corners. Simple and quick and can be made in any color!
People In Your Life card:
STAMPS: Better Together
INK: Hawaiian Shores
PAPER: Hawaiian Shores, Tropical Teal pattern pack

OTHER: white embossing powder.

Last up is a card with the Better Together large flower cut from watercolor paper, then stamped and embossed. To color it, I painted it with watercolor paints. The sentiment is from the new Inspired: Mercy stamps and dies.
I tapped a few little drops of watercolor in the background as well. This one is really pretty in real life.
Mercy card:
STAMPS: Better Together
INK: Versarmark, True Black
