    I love all these lovely cards! The florals are so intricate & real looking & I love the wreath behind that gorgeous bow! Awesome new products!!

  10. Hi Nina, AWESOME cards girl I already “pinned” them before I even finished reading your post, lol. I just thought WOW these cards are STUNNING I didn’t want to forget to pin them and I have you set up for alerts on my you tube channel so I always get to watch your videos over there after I finish the hop, since it does take awhile to get thru them all, loll. I ADORE how you made a wreth with the Bow stamp set, genius!!! It came out so Beautiful and I love that flannel die as the background, looks like it was made for it and the bow tops it off, that was my favorite stamp set from the release but my favorite card I think is the first one, I just thought, genius again girl!!!! I LOVE how you split the stamp up when completed with the sentiment inbetween, it looked AMAZING!! I LOVED your post, Thank you for sharing :)

  11. Lauryne Cunningham says:

    What a great idea showcasing the sentiments! I love your cards- very elegant!

  12. BrendaLea Abbott says:

    I love the way you showcased the sentiments on the first cards. All three are beautiful!

  13. Eva N says:

    Lovely cards. Thanks for showing these innovative design ideas; I’ll be trying several

  14. Linnea Sundstrom says:

    luv the sentiment idea, Nina!

  15. Dawn Jones says:

    Very pretty cards. Love the colors.

  16. cyndi morris says:

    Such a beautiful, unique card. I love the style. I’m always inspired after watching your videos.

  17. Jeanette Hebden says:

    The Cozy Flannel die is becoming one of my favourites but there are so many lovely sets that it’s hard to pick just one. Love the way you have used it on your card.

  18. Dana M says:

    Beautifully and wonderfully creative card designs. Fantastic compositions and color combinations. Love!

  19. Annalisa says:

    It’s funny, I see people cut their focal panels or images in videos, and I don’t have a problem with it, but then I try to do it myself and I get the coldest of cold feet. However, I really like the cool looks you can get by breaking up an image in such a stark way, so I might have to just put on my big girl pants and try it. I also really love how you filled out the branch with your colored pencils in your second card. It looks so full and lush. Thanks for sharing these lovely ideas with us! I always look forward to seeing what you come up with.

    • ninamarie says:

      You can do it, Annalisa!!!!!! It is indeed a nervous feeling sometimes, cutting something that took so long to work on. But most of the time, even if you screw it up, there is usually a way to salvage it! ;) I really hope you try doing this technique!!! :)

  20. Liz O says:

    Love this sentiment highlighting technique Nina! Both cards are pretty, but my favorite is the first one, I may be biased as Poinsettias are my favorite flowers. You did an awesome job showcasing the newly released products. Absolutely fabulous release! Thanks for the inspiration and for all you share!

    Awesome cards! Love how you put the sentiment between the halves of the flower on that first card. It looks really neat. :)

  24. Annette Reed says:
