Look how gorgeous and intricate these Springtime Impressions dies are! I especially love them to cut out the Garden Impressions designer paper (both projects) and to use for embossing with the new embossing mats (card below).

Welcome to the Fancy Friday blog hop!! We're a group of past and present Artisans who love inspire you each month. This May we're all about the True Gentleman suite. Have you noticed the classic-style textures and patterns in this stamp set and papers? So dapper! 

I took the colour combo - Tranquil Tide, Night of Navy and Crumb Cake and made a fun masculine card with rustic wood textures and the brand new Animal Outing stamp set. Check it out...

Inks: Momento Tuxedo Black, Night of Navy, Versamark
Papers: Crumb Cake, Night of Navy, Wood Textures 6x6" Paper Stack, Vellum, Silver Glimmer Paper, Tranquil Tide, Watercolor Paper
