Theresa's new set, Wild About You, is soooooo safari-awesome!!!!


 Stamps: Wild About You
Paper: Pure Luxury White, Smoky Slate, Sweet Mango; Sundance dp
Ink: Memento, Copics C3, C1, C00
Accessories: Burlap Ribbon, Clip

So perfect for masculine cards!  And just 3 different gray Copic markers and you've got an elephant colored and ready to go!  I stamped the small elephant silhouette to make a little background panel and then I had to use Gina's new Sundance dp!  And some burlap ribbon!  No bling....well does one little spiral clip REALLY count as bling?  I say not!  LOL  Seriously this set is gonna be WILD to play with!!!

Now a cute set especially great for making cards for the little ones called Blooming With Blessings.


 Stamps: Blooming With Blessings
Paper: Pure Luxury White, Wild Dandelion, Ocean Mist
Ink: Memento, Copics Y18, Y04, Y00, B02
Accessories: Spellbinders Grand Labels, Dots CB Folder, Ribbon, Rhinestones

How can you resist that little cutie?  Especially when he's all bright and cheery and spashing in some Spring rain puddles??  LOL  Just 3 yellow Copics and he was ready to get paired up with some Wild Dandelion Pure Luxury!  Some of my favorite Gina K. gingham ribbon and this time a fun little shaped card using the Grand Nestabilities.

Check out all the amazing designs and inspiration:
