TODAY'S PRIZE:
Bloom & Grow, Elegant Leaves Die and Floral Circles Die Set



Want to know more about today's featured set and dies?  Read on...

Bloom & Grow is a set of 20 flower-themed stamps.  With flowers of several different sizes, there's lots of fun to be had with this set.  You can use the images as flower centers with your favorite dies m including our new coordinating Floral Circles Dies. Or you can layer them together for 2-step stamping fun.  With four classy sentiments and a bit of greenery, beautiful cards are only an ink pad away!  And did I mention that the largest leaf stamp in this set coordinates with the new Elegant Leaves Die for an easy way to add some dimension and greenery?

But the best thing is the dies can be used on their own, too!  Here's a little size reference for the Floral Circle Die Set.  The dies are a solid shape (the blue circles are shown just for illustration) and layer together beautifully.  I've shown here what they would look like layered with circle punches, making them perfect little friends for sets like Happy Hello, Thankful Hearts and Circular Sayings
 

I used both the Elegant Leaves and the Floral Circles Dies on my hop card yesterday.  No stamping here (except for the background stamping I did on the paper before cutting), just plain old fashioned die-cut fun!  Here's a little close-up...
