This stamp set will be available for free on Stamp-a-faire day (August 24th, 2013) to all customers who make a qualifying purchase of $100 or more between 7am EST and 11:30pm EST, limit one per customer.


I have a card today to share that uses this beautiful set...


Are you getting tired of watercoloring combined with emboss resist? I am definitely not ans I think the results with this set are gorgeous!


I embossed the flowers and stems/leaves images in clear embossing powder and then used a water brush to watercolor with Terracotta Tile, Ripe Avocado, and Classic Kraft ink refills.


You can link up to the other cards that were created by Papertrey Ink design team members by going to Nichole's blog.

See you tomorrow for Stamp-a-Faire!
