Introducing...
Loving Blooms Fri-Die




Bloom
How gorgeous is this card from Karen?
Wowzers!  I love the inked edges, the curled up petals, the fun way she layered them together,
oh gosh, I just love it!!

Loving Blooms 1
Lynn got inky with her Loving Thoughts set, and then used her Fri-Dies!
Just think of all the fun ways you can stamp and cut.
I think the way she scattered these Loving Blooms across the 3 panels looks beautiful!


Loving Blooms Dies - Jingle
Jingle's playing peek-a-boo with her flower!  
I love the negative die cut that allows that gorgeous bloom to peep through!
I think that chevron stamped across from Zigs & Zags adds a wonderfully graphic feel!

Loving Blooms Die
Squeal! Is that an awesome blossom or what?
I love all the delicious patterns Angie chose for her flower and the twine center rocks!


Loving Bloom Die (July 28)
Virginia used the dies in their classic form to create layers that match up with each
inner bloom of the Loving Thoughts flower.  
I'm really loving how she double stamped the sentiment from Shenanigans.
Awesome shadow effect!

Loving Bloom/Thoughts, Beanstalks
Oh my, this one from Kelly is fabulous!
I love the gold embossing and the way she ruffled the petals a bit.
All those layers look positively delicious!

Loving Bloom, Big Thanks
Another fabulous bloom.
You will have just as much fun combining patterns and textures as she did.
I love how stacked the large bloom and offset it just enough so it looks shadowed.
Very cool!

CFS July#2with love

Gosh I love the chevrons so much with these flowers!
The rainbow of colors Piali achieved by simply stamping it in several colors is pure fun!  
You do have Zigs & Zags so you can do this too, right?
I love her pretty white on white flower she created with the dies.
Simply scrumptious!

What a great way to start the week!
Would a prize make it even more fun?
I think so!!

  20. Dies joining your already amazing stamp line up = AWESOME!! Wonderful cards to showcase the new release; each one absolutely stunning! My favourite flower: asters! Gorgeous blooms that flower well into the fall, and each time I see one (not often where I live...sighhh), memories of my grandmother's garden, alive with flowers of every kind (she grew flowers that 'ought not' to have grown where she resided...magic touch!!) are kindled! Thanks for asking this question; a trip down memory lane...
