Hello 'Fetti FAMILY!  It's here, it's here...the new release is FINALLY here!  While I was sad that we had to postpone the May birthday release, I knew that it was always #worththewait and now I'm so happy to say that the wait is over and all of the new release goodies, including the FREE (with minimum purchase) *limited edition* FRIENDLY RAINBOW stamp set is NOW AVAILABLE!  To celebrate, today we are having a HUGE birthday hop with lots of fabulous friends!  I am just giddy about it all!

 
 
Before I get to my projects and the hop list, let's recap this fabulous release...

My first project to share with you today is a card that I created using the

FRIENDLY RAINBOW stamp set.  This stamp set is FREE with a $60 purchase (please see the product page for all details).

I started with a PREMIER POLAR WHITE cardstock card base and then layered an OH MY HEART COVER PANEL cut (also PREMIER POLAR WHITE) on dimensional adhesive.  I cut a few hearts from gold cardstock and popped them in to 3 of the heart spaces.
The main image is the rainbow from the FRIENDLY RAINBOW stamp set, along with the stripe and outline clouds (stamped in NAVY on PREMIER POLAR WHITE and ICED AQUA).  The rainbow is colored with Copic markers and then I stamped the words in PISTACHIO ink. 
From there, I cut out the image and layered the sentiment strip between the clouds and popped it up on the card on top of strips of NAVY and BUTTERCUP cardstock.

My second project today is a card featuring the new SKETCHED FLORALS stamps and Confetti Cuts...
The card base is created from PREMIER POLAR WHITE cardstock and then is layered with a piece of MIST cardstock that is stamped on and layered with MIDNIGHT cardstock.  The outline images are stamped in MIDNIGHT ink and then the solid images are stamped with PISTACHIO and ROSE ink.  I used a light gray Copic marker to outline/shadow parts of the images.
 
 
For the focal image, I cut the word "thanks" from the HELLO & THANKS LABEL Confetti Cuts die set (MIDNIGHT cardstock).  The floral images are again stamped on MIST with MIDNIGHT, PISTACHIO and ROSE ink.  I cut them out along with another cut from vellum and layered it under the sentiment panel.
As a finishing touch, I added enamel dots.

As I noted above, I am just giddy about today - the new release is now available and we have a huge birthday celebration hop with so many friends joining us!  It's time for you to head on out and see all of their amazing creations...
