Let's review...

I kinda went a little overboard for today's Clear and Simple Release Review.  Today we are showcasing the new background stamps and I....well, like I said...went a little crazy!  I have 3 cards to share.  I guess I can't help it!  I am loving these new background sets!  

Here is my first card using the new Plaid background stamp...


This card also shows a fun little flower I made using the new Build-A-flower dies.  Here is a quick picture so   you can see how I made them!  SUPER easy....

I cut the flowers out using some new Clear and Simple Felt!  Yes!! I said new felt!!  :)  Then I cut a very simple little spiral cut and then rolled them up into little buds.  I took a needle and thread and did a simple stitch through the bottom to keep them secure.  Super easy!

Here is my next card using the number background from the new Playroom set...


I had to add in those adorable denim overalls from the Tiny Fashions set.  I love the matching dies for the clothes in this set!  SO fun!

And my last card uses my most favorite background image from the new Circles Plus set.  Lots of circles and polka dots people!  This is a great set for your stash!


Here is a list of the other DT girls showcasing the new background stamps today too!  I'm sure they have some fun new creations to check out!

OH and remember that felt I mentioned....

This fun stack of colors will be available April 5th.

Thanks so much for coming by!  Stay tuned for more release review! :)
