New Catalogue, new look!

I decided it was time for a blog facelift, and was inspired by the Manhattan style from the new catalogue... I'd love to hear what you think!
As promised, here are a couple cards using new sets from the new catalogue! The first one uses a single stamp ~ Elegant Thank You (make sure you check out the very last page of the catalogue... there are some great single stamps to add sentiments and images you might need).

I wanted to keep the focus on the stamp, so I did some dry embossing, heat embossing and sponging.

This card uses the beautiful Level 2 Hostess Set, Echoes of Kindness. More heat embossing and blender pens with markers to colour the images (I scribble the markers on a stamp case, then pick up with the blender pen).

Beautiful cards! Love the Thank You inside the punch. Great idea - and the coloring on the flowers is so soft and beautiful.

Wonderful coloring! I like the new look, too! I'm really digging the Manhattan theme..the colors, the patterns, all of it.
