This card features Always Be Kind Stamp set. One of my super favourites from this release for the Wonderful sentiments and for this Beautiful Floral Stalk.

I stamped on a Toned Gray sketch paper using White pigment ink and colored to my heart's content using Colored pencils. It's such a breeze to color this inflorescence. The Large sentiment and the sub sentiment are from this stampset. I diecut the focal panel and topped over a A2 sized cardbase.

Other product: Midnight Violet, Jet Black Crisp ink dye






Next card features Educators Rule Stamp and Die Set. I have clubbed this set with Beautiful Inside Add-on Sentiment, which perfectly matches with the theme of the card.





This card features Always Be Kind stamp set and Small World Die Set from previous release. They made a perfect match!





The final card is my most favorite card using Wispy Joy Stamp set. No line Watercoloring it is. This time I wanna them to look like Floral Ephemera kind of diecuts. Loose watercoloring style I tried here for that using markers.

I topped the colored diecuts over a oval embossed panel. The sentiment is from Beautiful Inside Add-on Set, which perfectly matches my floral.
