For my first card today, I embossed the new Paris Winter Watercolors stamp with white embossing powder onto some smooth watercolor paper.  I pressed some distress inks onto my craft mat, spritzed with water, and then dipped this embossed image into the inky pool.  I didn't use any purple inks - the pink and blue colors mixed together to create these wonderful hues.  I used Peacock Feathers, Picked Raspberry, and Salty Ocean Distress inks.  The smoothness of the watercolor paper is necessary to preserve the wonderful details of this stamp when using embossing powders.  The sentiment is called Beauty of Winter (previously released) and it's stamped with both the Raspberry and the Peacock Feathers distress inks to create that deep purple color (thank you, MISTI tool!!).  

For my second card today, I used the fun new Valentine Wishes stamp.  I stamped this with a raspberry ink and then cut it out with a circle die.  The background was created by punching out some hearts from raspberry cardstock, running them through an embossing folder, and adhering them to a raspberry cardstock layer.  It's a fun textural element for this cute card.

For my last card today, I used the gorgeous new Small Snowflake Trio set.  I wanted to to try these with a rustic style background, so I stamped the Weathered Wall with gray ink onto some gray cardstock.  I embossed the Hello from Five Fab Phrases with white embossing powder, and then I embossed all three of the snowflakes several times with the same white embossing powder.  To enhance the snowy feel of this card, I embossed the edges of the "wood" with more white embossing powder.  I'm in love with this wintry, rustic, snow-filled card.

The "Gotta Have It All" bundle is $94.80.  The regular price for all these stamps is $126.30, so you're saving $31.50 if you buy the bundle.  This is a fantastic deal!
