We've got two terrific new release cards to share with you today.

First, we have Lynn's CHICKADEE card
Lynn created this beautiful card by combining the CHICKADEE image with some PanPastel coloring and masking, and her own special touch of adding a snowy look to the background.
Lynn has shared quite a few videos with us in the past, showing us just how easy (and quickly) you can color an image with PanPastels.
Lynn tell us that combining PanPastels with a few colored pencil detail coloring made this card one of those easy to create cards!

The CHICKADEE image is an image that can stand alone on a card front and crate beautiful cards, all by itself.
We think that Lynn's card is ideal for Holiday and Winter themed cards and would be great for getting a head start on creating your Holiday cards!

Today's second new release card was created by Nancy!

Nancy added bold bright coloring to this large card front sized stamped image and finished the card with paper layering and gold shimmer Ribbon from TheRibbonPlace.

Nancy has a great video tutorial to share with you where she'll show you how she created this card with the new release Honeybee and Sunflower stamp.

We are excited to begin a month of sharing new release stamps and projects with you and hope that you'll follow along, enjoy and be inspired by today's blog hop

You'll find the CHICKADEE stamp and the HONEYBEE and SUNFLOWER stamp HERE, along with all of the other JULY NEW RELEASE STAMPS, at the Blue knight rubber Stamps web store.

The GOLD SATIN ENGLISH RIBBON can be found HERE, at TheRibbonPlace.

Don't forget to head over to Shirley's blog, HERE, to see what she's created with the fabulous new TITUS, THE GREAT ADVENTURER stamp!
