Today I am sharing two cards with two new products! My first one features the new Bandana Bold Prints background die. I wanted to show that it could be used in non-traditional colors, and in a non-traditional way, so I did some watercolor effects by smooshing different distress inks and spraying lightly with water. You want to be sure to spray lightly, since too much can make the color pool and you lose the cool pattern of the Bandana.

I then die cut it using an older product, the Infinity Heart Dies and used the Heart Confetti Background die a white-on-white accent behind our large heart. Using a sentiment from a MMH kit, all I added was a few jewels and some Nuvo Drops around the edge of our heart. And we have created a warm card with a focal point with lots of interest, because we used the bandana background die. 

My next card features the new Color Layering Mountain Lion stamp set, and it creates such a beautiful big cat! And with only three layers too, which are super easy to line up. I blended a twilight sky using distress inks, and sprayed it with water for a starry look. I then stamped the mountain range in black at the bottom of my panel, and added my puma on top, which I hand-cut out.

I die cut a circle using the Infinity Circle Die Set to act as a large rising moon behind our puma, and also to help break up some space on our card. I added my sentiment in the bottom left, and a few jewels and this card is done as well!
