Gina Marie Flamingo Dies + MFT

Hi everyone, it's a hot, sunny Tuesday here in NC.  I'm actually ready for some fall weather, I'm wondering how much longer until we get a cool down.  In the meantime, I've got some fans set up in my makeshift craft room to stay cool!

Today I've got 2 new dies from Gina Marie Designs to show you.  First, the Studded Dot Circle Die.  This die cuts on both sides of the cut line, and as you can see, I used the center part only this time.

Then I used her new flamingo dies and hit them with a little Abandoned Coral Distress Ink and some Wink of Stella to give them a little glimmer!

For my background, I really loved using this BOLD scallop pattern and guess what?  I created that paper with a background stamp from #MFT #ScallopBackground #TickledPink  I was so excited to finally use both of these MFT products that had been in my stash for quite a while!

I heat embossed one of these great sentiments using Judikins Opaque White EP and VersaFine ink, two of my fav embossing combinations!  Lastly I added some pink vertical striped paper, black twine and few pearls!

Thank you for stopping by, have a GREAT day!
