I've made three cards for today's reveal. 
My first card is featuring Beautiful Bettas set. 


I started by making the blue background panel using alcohol inks. I used Indigo, Turquoise, Aqua and added silver splatters on photo paper. I then stamped the fishes. The orange fishes are stamped in Beach Blondie, Peach Blossom and Coraline Hybrid ink. For the pink fish I used Rose Quartz instead of Beach Blondie. The seaweeds were silver heat embossed. I fussy cut them all and set them aside.  (Of course you can use coordinating dies)

I cut a white panel in two pieces with curvy cut lines and foam mounted them onto the cardbase on which I adhered the blue alcohol ink panel. I then added the fishes and seaweeds, some on foam adhesives and some flat. To finish off I added some Clear and Seaglass Blue Dew Drops.


I kept the second card in a clean look.


I stamped the biggest flower from Large Dahlia1 on some Bristol smooth paper in Rose Quartz and the leaves from Large Dahlia sets in Soft Garden. I then colored the image with Zig brush markers. For the flower I used Purple and the leaves were colored using three green shades and Olive Green.


I dry embossed the panel using a Double Stitched Rectangle die to give it some more interest and mounted it onto the cardbase. The sentiment in Noir is from Perfect Fit sentiments set and the gold heat embossed hello is from The Most Interesting Cardmaker set. My finishing touch was some sequins from Pink Bokeh Couture Mix.


My last card for today is showing one of the standalone dies: Pop Up Peony dies.
*As the dies were not delivered when I made this card, I used cutting files and my cutting machine to cut the petals. The dies will be available when orders ship out!*


I started off by making the front panel. I white heat embossed the bold sentiment from Seriously Amazing sentiments set on some mixed media paper and added loosely watercolors in purple, aqua, magenta and blue on it. After the panel was dry I cut it using Double Stitched Rectangle die and glued it flat on a hot pink cardbase. 


I then made the background for the inside. I added watercolor wash in magenta and aqua on some mixed media paper panel, splattered the same colors and opaque white ink on it and let it dry, before I adhered it on the inside of my card.
Pop Up Peony petals and leaves were cut from some vellum. I colored them using Tombow brush markers. I used light pink for the base layer and made it darker towards the center. The leaves were colored in light blue to match to the background. I colored the stamen in yellow and started assembling the Pop Up Peony. It was quite easy to make this pretty 3D peony to pop up. And as I used thin vellum the folded card wasn't that thick.
