Today we’re showing you three new sets:

  • Vertical Greetings
  • Ring Me
  • Finishing Flourishes

I’m using Vertical Greetings and Finishing Flourishes on my card today. Vertical Greetings has four sentiments and there is a coordinating die that will sell separately.

I stamped the sentiment on a Vertical Greetings Die-namics die cut and added some patterned paper to the bottom part of the die cut. I LOVE the size of these sentiments and the vertical orientation—PERFECT for the focal element. I popped it up on top of some bling and gingham ribbon/bow.

I found that when I was stamping these images, it was easier for me (I have small hands) to turn the die cut on it’s “side” and mount the stamp the same way. Then I just stamped like I do with longer sentiment stamps. Make sense?


Here’s the inside of my card using Finishing Flourishes. The sentiment is from the set as are the flourishes. Sweet, no?


Here is the soon-to-be-released Vertical Greetings Die-namics die I used on this card:


And that’s it! Hope to see you back again tomorrow for another teaser!
