I have to say that I fell hook, line and sinker for this gorgeous project kit.  I love anything floral, but that beautiful 3D Garden Rose embossing folder just blew me away.

I have three different projects to share with you today using different products from this latest release.

I used a pearly pastel green card stock for this card and I love how the soft sheen enhances all the 3D detail.

I stamped and die cut some pretty roses and some leaves for added texture.  The flowers were stamped in Altenew Pinkalicious and Razzleberry Crisp Dye Inks, and  used Pink Diamond Crisp Dye Ink to stencil the base colour.

I created the topper for the sentiment with my Altenew Nesting Ovals Die Set.  It's a very simple design, but I happen to like uncomplicated !  

The illustration below shows what is included in this month's project kit:-

Next up I have something  clean and simple.  

My card is a 5" x 7" base (I think this is my favourite card size).  I cut the the white panel at 4-3/4" x 6-3/4" and then stamped on the three flowers in Altenew Obsidian Pigment Ink which gave a lovely crisp image.  Then I stamped the next layer in Pinkalicious Crisp Dye Ink.     

I stencilled on my "thanks" sentiment.   I love how big and bold this sentiment looks.  It really creates an impact.

For my final card, I wanted to go for a monotone colour scheme.  Again, the base is 5" x 7" inches.

I used the embossing folder to create a blue layer, and then simply stamped and die-cut three rose using my Starlight crisp dye ink for the outlines and stamping layers in Sea Breeze and Turquoise.

I stuck my sentiment stamp in a curve onto my stamping platform and stamped the curved sentiment to reflect the arched layer of die-cut flowers.
