First up, we have Chris Dayton's Sentimental Calla Lily! Love these elegant stems and greetings! For this first design I made a simple single layer on GKD Heavy Base Weight White and stamped the sentiment and calla lilies in Black Onyx. Flowers are colored with Spectrum Noir markers. I traced a drop shadow on Congratulations with GG2.
Next, I mixed in some GKD Kraft and Black Onyx to pop up on the white for this quiet sympathy design. I used the same Spectrum Noir markers for the stem but used a white gel pen for the lily. Again, I traced the greeting for just a little shadow. Welcome to the illustration team, Chris, and congrats on this beautiful first set!

Next up we have the darling Happy Mail, free for a limited time with your purchase of $75 or more, and I love the theme, fonts and words for inside and out, both cards and your envelopes!
Is this darling, or what? I, for one, am super excited to stamp "Not a Bill" on *everything*, and pair these fun sentiments with my postage frame and cancelled postmark from Stately Flowers 11! :) Here are a couple ideas for your inspiration with this fun, free set!
Happy, happy, incoming!! Letter image is stamped in GKD Ocean Mist, Warm Cocoa, and Peach Bellini.Greeting is cut with one of the Gina K. Single Stitched Circles dies.
Here I used one of the sentiments with images from my new Pressed Flowers 2 framed up inside the postage Frame from Stately Flowers 11 (back in stock!) It is going to be so fun using all these big postage themed greetings with my big postage frame!! I added one to the flap of the envelope and a few more flowers to match. Floral elements are stamped in GKD Red Hot, Peach Bellini, and Fresh Asparagus.
