The free with 3 set this month is so cute!!!  Great Sayings.....


I do so love making backgrounds with stamps....and with these flowers I could add lots of bling!  And see the pink?  See???  You all thought I forgot about my pink just cuz I strayed yesterday??  LOL  I thought a pastel Springy card would bring a smile and I made this thank you card especially for a friend who I am thankful for!  I do love layering my sentiment tags....I combined both Spellbinders Fancy Tags 1 and 2.  I used Pure Luxury colors of Bubblegum Pink, Lemon Drop, Key Lime and Ocean Mist.

Now here is the very sweet Anniversary Stamp Set freebie.....Believe In Yourself.


Alas!  I left that little bitty stamp at home and couldn't make a card to show....I'll make up for it later, I promise!  For now close your eyes and imagine a frilly pink butterfly card!  LOL

Smiley from millan.net

I do love each and every Stamp TV Kit.....and this one is no exception!!  It's so dainty and sweet and SPRING!!!


I thought I'd focus on these adorable little birdies.....and paper piecing them makes the Ocean Mist Pure Luxury sky look so real with the sunshine there in the corner!  Ok, not really, but we can create anything when crafting!!  LOL  I used some lace and pearls and rhinestones OH MY so I could keep it blingy and girlie! 

Here's a little set I made and showed at the release party in case anyone missed the party....they are fun but hop along at a crazy rate! LOL


This uses the adorable hot air balloon image and the butterfly image from the kit.  It also uses the beautiful new Petals & Wings dp that goes along with the Kit!!  I love the plaid!!!  So some flowers and bling and ribbon were perfect to make a little gifty set with some chocolates in the box!!

Check out all the amazing designs and inspiration:

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.

First up is the new set Wild Flowers by Melanie...........


I am hostessing one of the Stamp TV Anniversary Challenges to make a Memory Keeper that Gina showcased in one of her videos.  Come play along!  I used the brand new Petals and Wings designer paper along with Pure Luxury Lipstick Red and Bubblegum Pink.  Two of my most FAVE Pure Luxury colors!!!  I actually anchored the image panel to the bottom of the Keeper so that the top flap can easily stay put when slid into place.  Both the Memory Keeper and the Info Cards are also available as free templates at Stamp TV on our Freebies Tab!!

Now here's a fabulous set Masculine Tags by Tami.........


Since it's a masculine card I did cut down on the bling! LOL  But I snuck in a little bit!  Heehee!  I used the Casual Friday designer paper and Pure Luxury in Black Onyx and Sweet Corn.  I used the Scor Pal to make a bit of texture.  I can't wait to get the Nesties that match this set.....I hand cut these to layer them.  I love the sentiments in this set.....my husband IS my hero and I love that I can make him a card that says just that!
