ok, with that in mind, be sure to click here to see the WHOLE new September release!! below are some of the cards I made with the new stencils and cling stamps!

my first card uses the new Diagonal Grid Stencil:

i love it!!
i used Squeezed Lemonade and Mustard Seed Distress Inks to create the background! i love that grid!!!

the succulents are from the Aloha Spirit stamp set! I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers to watercolor them in! I even used a touch of purple! shhhh, don't tell anyone! ha! i used the Thanks Twice die for the sentiment! and (it's hard to tell, grrr) but lots of Spectrum Noir glitter on the 'thanks' word itself!

my second card used the Balloons in the Sky cling stamp set! 

LOOOOOOVE that stamp!!! I decided to keep the background netural with some Pumice Stone Distress Ink around the edges so the sentiment from Make a Wish would stand out! 

I colored directly onto the stamp with the Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and then stamped it on the paper! so fun and colorful!

my last card uses the Under the Sea and Woodgrain cling stamps! 

I used the woodgrain in Cracked Pistachio and Twisted Citron Distress Ink for the tag from Lovely Tags die set! LOOOOOOVE that shape of the tag and the faux stitching around the edges! 

those adorable sea creatures are from the Glowing Seaside stamp set! LOVE them! the background was created with Distress Inks and some watercoloring! I clear heat embossed the adorable little fish for a subtle bit of texture! and the Aqua Alphabet Stickers were stitching on with my sewing machine!

what a post, right?!
