I would like to welcome you, the Royal Tourist, to my castle. I am so excited to be a part of this Blog Tour. I am really happy to be using the Fresh Cuts stamp set. This is the first set that I bought when I started stamping again. This stamp set coordinates with the Fresh Cuts Notes Die-Cut Cards but it is so versatile that it can be used by itself to make wonderful cards or other projects. I hope that you like what I did with it.


This first card showcases the stamp set with the die cut cards.It is such a quick and easy way to make a thank you card, thinking of you card or just about any type of card that you might need. I used Melon Mambo ink and cardstock.


This next card is probably my most favorite of all. I just love the easel cards. I used heat embossing and the spotlight technique to give this card an elegant look. I think Rich Razzleberry and Basic Black card stock go so well with each other. I used the Scallop Trim Corner Punch along with the Scallop Trim Border Punch for accents.


Bermuda Bay and Melon Mambo card stock, along with Razzleberry Lemonade Designer Series Paper were used on this next project. I don't know about you, but I always need a scratch pad on my desk. Wouldn't this be a wonderful gift for someone. Each time that they use it, they will know that you are thinking of them.


I really had fun making this 3x3 note card box and the thank you cards that go with it. I really love how the Cottage Wall Designer Series Paper coordinates with this stamp set. I took the Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive and Orchid Opulence colors from the Designer Paper and made the 3x3 thank you cards. I used the reverse masking technique and I also used the color spritzer for an added touch.



Don't forget to look for clues needed to sign up for the Big Shot Drawing. I hope that you have enjoyed looking at my samples as much as I enjoyed working on them. Have a Blessed Day and enjoy yourself on the tour.
