Sweet Stamps Botanicals Blog Hop

Today Sweet Stamps is hosting a blog hop to showcase new stamps from our very own Jacqueline Hill; some fabulous floral images!  I love floral images, so I was having fun playing with all the new stamps!!

 Visit each team member's blog and collect a letter. Once you get all the letters, unscramble them to reveal a word. Then return to the Challenge blog and leave a comment with the answer.
We will be awarding a first place prize of your choice of 6 stamps from the new release and a second place prize of your choice of 4 stamps from the new release. We will also be awarding random prizes of rubber stamps chosen from the readers who comment on each member's blog so be sure to leave some love.

Blog Hop winners will be announced on Monday, June 27th before our next challenge. Start your hop with Jacqueline's blog and continue through the team.

Here is the list of blogs:

-----------------------------------------

I have two cards, I would like to share with you today showcasing some of the new stamps!!

This first one I used a new duo set called "Elizabeth's Wildflower". (#3034)
 I used Shades Dye Ink "Pansy Purple" to stamp the sentiment "With Love" which is also from the new release.  (#3041) I also used one of the new Cherry Lynn Dies that I am in love with!  The set is made up of 3 Mini Exotic Butterflies.

  I close-up of the flower.  I used Creative Inspirations Paint "Amethyst" to add shimmer to the flower and butterfly.

-----------------------------------------

Lastly, I have a quick and simple notecard I made.  I used a new duo set called "Daisy Duo". (#3026)  You get both a big daisy and a small one.
 I used the embossing folder "Spots" behind the daisy's which I got from Sweet Stamps.

I used Creative Inspirations Paint "Tickled Pink" to add shimmer to the flowers.

-----------------------------------------

Here's a look at all the new stamps!!!




What some great floral images, don't you think?!?!?! 
I sure think so!

Both cute cards, but the purple is my favorite. What one single flower can do. The paper is very pretty and the butterfly adds just enough to it. Edna
