Here we go!

Today I will be sharing a set of three cards I created, using NEW PRODUCTS from this GORGEOUS, New Idea Book!  

Take a look....

I used the floral designer paper from our BRAND NEW Whimsy Fundamentals for the base part of these cards.  By adding some black cardstock & coloring in these flowers with our wonderful ShinHan alcohol markers, they turned out to be some beautiful cards!! 

Feel free to CLICK HERE to check out all of the patterns in our NEW Whimsy Fundamentals palette!  I love the new feature on our websites, where each individual paper in a paper collection is shown!

On this 3 card collection, I used a NEW stamp set called "Happily Ever After".  

What a PERFECT stamp set for celebrating the joyous occasion of getting married!  I was excited how these flowers turned out...I don't see myself as a very good colorer, but really liked these purple hues! 

Also - I know I'll be using the word "Celebrate" for more than just weddings....recently, I stamped this word on a birthday card too! :) 

I also wanted to use our NEW "Color of the Year" color...Bashful in this project.  Take a peek on this "Best wishes" card, I used the Bashful Glitter paper, as well as the Bashful pearls!  Hooray for a NEW Color Of The Year! 

The final close up of this card, there isn't much to say ;)'s just a simple card.  I chose to use different embellishments for all 3 cards...just to be different :).  This card uses our Gold Glitter Gems. 

I hope you enjoyed this card, and were INSPIRED today!! :) 
Now it's time to "Hop" on over to Janna's  Blog to see her beautiful creation!
