Yea!!! It's new release time. We have put together a blog hop for you to see ideas using Miss Emma's newest release. There is some awesome stuff in this set. So, lets get on with what I made for the blog hop. Hope you like! And don't forget to leave some love on each post for a better chance to win some goodies from Emma.

Ahhhh!!! How cute is this Postage Stamp Die?! This is an awesome little frame and I know you will go to it often. So versatile and I know you will find many cool ways to use it. I saved the center piece that gets cut out when you run it through you Cuttlebug. I used that to cut the hole in the front of the card, creating a window.

I love the new chunky glitter I got from Stampin Up. It really added a ton of sparkle to the edge of the heart die. These hearts layer up so nicely...gives a great look with the added dimension. I also made a bow out of my stash of crinkled seam binding ribbon. Love that stuff!

I am building my stash of Copic markers and learning a bit about coloring with them. I used them to color in these beautiful roses from "Bloom Where You Are Planted" stamp set. I then carefully cut them out by hand. I have a lot to learn but I think these came out rather pretty!

See the window? I like how you can see inside, and when you open the card the stamped sentiment is on the inside. I cut the die out of designer paper and chip board. It makes it much thicker and adds just that bit of dimension. I also ran the black layer through my Cuttlebug using a textured embossing folder.

  64. I love how the red pops off the black. I also really love cards where you cut the front to "peek" into the sentiment on the inside.

    Super beautiful card!!
