I have two cards using these sets for you today, the first is very CAS and the second is more “scrappy'”. For the first one, I’m using a Sweet Tooth card stock card base and first, stamped the double stitch image twice in Black Licorice ink (YES!! it’s being released this month!) and then the sentiment in Wild Cherry ink. I stamped the leaf and stem image in Jellybean Green ink directly on the card. Then I cut out one of the new Die-namics Rustic Hearts from Sweet Tooth card stock and stamped the image from the set in Wild Cherry ink, then popped it up on foam.

Here’s the inside with another sentiment from the set, along with a heart image stamped with “XOXO”, both also included in the set.

For my second card, I stamped the leaf and stem on patterned paper, also with Jellybean Green ink, cut a different heart from Die-namics Rustic Hearts with Whip Cream card stock and stamped the matching image in Wild Cherry ink, again popping the heart up on foam. Next, I tied around some hemp cord and tied on a Wild Cherry button, then “framed” my heart with a  Die-namics LLD Insert It – InstaFrame die cut and popped the whole thing up on foam on my card base. Finally, I stamped the sentiment on a Die-namics First Place Award Ribbon flag, did a little stitching on one end and popped it up, as well.

Here’s the inside with another sentiment and heart from the set.
