STAMPlorations Bloomtangled Cover Plates & Simply Sentiment Dies!

Good morning crafty peeps!
Today I'm excited to be a part of the
reveal! I'm sure you know that Shery created a coloring book
last year called Bloomtangled. Well she's wowed us
yet again with her brilliance and created some cover plate dies
from some of the designs in the coloring book!

Here are two cards I've made using two of the plates along with two of
the new Simply Sentiments dies:

My first card is pretty CAS. I started by cutting the Bloomtangled #1 cover plate from white card stock and gluing to a yellow card base. I die cut the Just Because phrase die 3 times, stacked and glued, then covered it with my Wink of Stella pen. Some black enamel dots and rhinestones
were added for some bling. (Gotta have some bling!)

 and the inside using a sentiment from the Fond Expressions 2 set:

For my second card, after die cutting the Bloomtangled #2 cover plate, I used my Magenta
Nuance powder dyes as water colors and had some fun coloring the die cut.
This was also covered with Wink of Stella, but with my crack photography
skillz, you really can't see the shimmer. LOL!
The Thinking of you phrase die was cut a couple times. I took a couple ink pads and
dabbed them around one of the die cuts to color it, then stacked and glued them.
I added a coat of Glossy Accents for some shine.

 and the inside using a sentiment from the Fond Expressions set:

 Close up of the sentiment. I used rhinestones for the dots on the i's.

Aren't these cover plates amazing?!! I just love them!
