Have you seen the gorgeous New Day Card kit?!


I could literally create for days with this kit.  I managed to make 3 cards for today's hop and didn't even make a dent in all the supplies!


I had so much fun, first up is a card that uses some of the images from the stamp set:


If you didn't know it already, green is my favorite.  I certainly gravitated to that gorgeous striped paper from the 6x6 paper pad.  See that frame?  Oh my, it's absolutely gorgeous and just filled with such lovely details.  I stamped the bloom in a couple different shades of ink to come up with my own custom color.  The mixed font sentiment is perfect-o!

Next up is a card that I designed to focus on the paper pad: 


I used my Distress Oxides to color in those blooms!  Super happy that the paper didn't warp at all!  I can't stay away from that beautiful frame die!  This time I die cut it in black and mounted all the layers on a black note card.  The sentiment is from the kit's stamp set.  A little bit of a watercolored background to coordinate with the blooms.

My final card has no stamping!


I used that awesome wood veneer and puffy letters from the kit and *boom* the card was done!

Whew!  That's it for me!  Next up is the awesome TaeEun Yoo!  Remember to leave a comment before you go to be eligible for the giveaway!
