Thank you also for taking the time to post a video. I am a visual learner & always am appreciative when someone does that. My favourite colours are It's a Girl & Mint to Be.
I just can't choose between the two. :)

What a unique way to showcase all the new inks. I like the different ways you used the circle dies.

clare barford said...

I am loving seeing this beautiful rainbow of colours in a softer set of colours. It's so nice to see some soft pastel ink colours that stamp really easily without being splotchy. I am so excited to try them out. I was so sure I wasn't going to get this set of inks as I thought I had enough but when I saw the colours I was sold. I am a happy but slightly poorer stamper!!

Beth Karschnick said...

What a great design, Heather!! So versatile and those little flowers are SO cute!! TFS

Mary-Anne V said...

Love how you used these inks all on one card...very pretty design and great video explaining how you made this card.

Heather, you mentioned being inspired by Kristie's work--that is what is so wonderful about the whole blog-o-sphere! So much to see and savour, such generosity with tips and techniques...
Your happy rainbow focals are delicious! Tulips are just starting to appear here in Ontario (the green parts, anyway)--they'll be out in full by Mother's Day, so perfect card sentiments.
I think Garden Party is still my favorite new ink colour. Such a perfect green for spring and new growth.
