I created two cards using these fabulous new stamps.  The first is very masculine and features some masking:
I started by stamping the oval frame on white card stock.  I stamped it a second time on copy paper and cut out the center, then laid it over the first frame on the card stock and stamped the lighthouse image on top.  I just love how it turned out, it looks very dimensional to me.  I think this is going to be my Father's Day card for my father, though maybe for my Father-in-Law.
My second card is much more feminine and very sweet:

I have hundreds of strawberry plants and this week they are in full strawberry production mode, so it seemed the perfect time to use this beautiful image.  I stamped the frame and then fussy cut it and stamped the strawberries inside.  I added some flowers from one of our releases from last month: "Flower Power Backgrounds and Borders".
Thanks for stopping by.  We have one more day of release peeks tomorrow, I hop you will stop by The House blog tomorrow and check it out.
