Today I have three, very CAS cards to share, using the newly released products. For my first card, I used a stamp from the new Watercolor Frames stamp set to create a subtle backdrop for a cake from Cake Love Stamp Set.


I used Altenew Markers to do some colouring and used a shape from Simple Flowers Die Set to cut out the stamped cake.


For my next card, I again used a stamp from the Watercolor Frames set for the background. This time I inked the image with three different colours of ink to achieve a fun ombre look.

As my focal point, I used a beautiful image from Under the Cherry Blossom Tree stamp set. I stamped it with black ink and cut out using the coordinating die.

For my last card today, I used Enchanted Iris Stamp Set. I simply ink part of the flower stamp and stamped them in a row.


I used markers to do some simple colouring and added the sentiment to finish off the card.


This is the last stop on the blog hop today, I hope you enjoyed seeing all the new products and the inspiration from everyone! If you want to start from the beginning to check all the amazing projects along the way here is the full list:
