For my first card, I combined the new Vintage Labels dies & Carried to Heaven with the Flourish Label Borders, Vintage Flourish Pattern dies, Ornamental Cross Collection dies & Chalkboard Vine Background from last month’s release. I also added the Cala Lily from the Loving Memories set. After I die cut the Vintage Labels and the Vintage Flourish Pattern dies out of white, I left the dies in place on the labels and stamped the Chalkboard Vine pattern on top using the sky blue ink. I added the Flourish Label Border on the largest die using the black ink.
The lilies were colored with Copics and fussy cut. I added a bit of blue to the smallest cross and stacked the crosses on top of the lilies. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used.

For my second card, I used the Sheltering Angel, the Chalkboard Vine Background, the Vintage Label Dies, the largest of the Vintage Flourish Pattern die and the Angel Wings dies. I liked the lt blue ink on white on my first card, so I made a large background again using the Chalkboard Vine Bg and the sky blue ink. I thought it needed a little something, so I pierced all around the border. The Sheltering Angel blessing was stamped, die cut and with the die still in place, I used colors from the two Kaleidacolor pads to sponge the color on top. For the yellow label and the largest background, I stamped the Chalkboard Vine bg again using the straw ink (stamped one off) and sponged on a little more of the same ink to deepen the color. The Angel Wings were die cut out of yellow and I used the yellow & orange inks from the melon Kpad to add a little more color.
