My first card uses the new stamp set Love Grows Here designed by our newest illustrator, Emily Burger, and her collection Embracing Grace. Emily kicks off her collection with this darling set of 7 tree vignettes for year-round fun and versatility!  This is a full size set with 18 images.


I stamped the tree in Memento Ink in Rich Cocoa and colored with Copics. My papers are from Crate Paper Farmhouse. I used the TE Cloud Border Die at the top. I added stitching, a button, and Doodlebug Twine in Ladybug.



I used colored pencil to add the grass. The sentiment if from the stamp set.


My second project us
es Moka Morgana. Morgana is Illustrated by Nancy McKinney for the Moka Collection.  Nancy was inspired by her daughter who loves to dance!  What girl hasn't dreamed of being a ballerina at some point in her life? I know my girls did!!


Morgana is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and is colored with Copics. My papers are from My Mind's Eye Blush. I add some pink tulle and a rose; seemed perfect for a ballerina card! My scalloped borders are cut with the TE Medium Scallop Border.



I added a sweet sentiment from the set, colored the crown, and added rhinestones.



Thanks for stopping by! I will back tomorrow with another new stamp preview.  Be sure to stop by all the designers blogs today for lots more inspiration.
