Here are the new sets and die set
I used for my samples today

Cathedral Window-Wood, Cathedral Window and Border dies, Our Daily Bread designs

Polished Stone technique on vellum for this stained glass Cathedral Window-Wood and Cathedral Window and Border dies. Trying to get a picture to show the light through the vellum was no easy task though!

I also used Bookmarks-Scripture, die cut with Spellbinders Radiant Rectangles and sponged with Dusty Concord. Embossing folder is called Kassie’s Brocade, Flourishes from Spellbinders and Cheery Lynn Designs.

Simply done… stamped, embossed and die cut with ODBD Elegant Ovals and Spellbinders A2 Distressed Edges. The embossing plate used for this is now retired.
