I’m featuring the new Calico stamp set. I kept it pretty simple to really showcase the flowers from the Calico set. My sentiment is from the Salutations set, which I framed using the Duo Die 2. I stamped the flowers and leaves, cut them out and adhered them to the frame.

Paper SmoochesNext, I used the Tag Scallop Die with another sentiment from Salutations stamped on an oval from the Oval dies. I framed the sentiment with a large flower from the new Calico set.
