March Release--Inspiration Blog Hop Day 2!!

Hey ya'll!! Welcome back to day two of our March release, giving you a bit of inspiration we hope! I am so loving playing with this month's stamp sets...there really is something for every taste this month! We have 3 sets today we want to inspire you with...so I will try to be a bit brief in my yakking, lol!

Up first is Melanie Muenchinger's Newest set called Bring the Bling...Oh my! Does this set ever have the possibilities!! I decided to make a new card, instead of the little snippet I gave the other day cause I was having so much playing with this set..so here is what I have for today: ( I will show that whole card later in the week though!)



Just a really quick card too! I actually even made this one with my 4 yr. old grandson running around me, lol! LOVE this set! Melanie has also posted her tip sheet on this set on her blog too!

Up next is Theresa Momber's newest set called Warm With Love...And its true to T's style, such realism!! Here is what I have done with this set for today:



I did one of my favorite things to do, color on kraft cardstock! My neighbor across the road has some of these irises this very color, and they are already blooming! This set also has a beautiful swan in it, cant wait to play with that image too....

Next up is Asela Hopkins' newest set called Make A Splash...this is a fun whimsical set! I did this card for the challenge from our release party, to use metal on our creation...the blue layer is metal that I embossed then sanded and cut out! Love the little whale sitting on top of the waves!



Boy, looks like I was in a 'krafty' cardstock kinda of mood on my creations for today, lol! But if you know anything about me, its my love of Gina K's kraft cardstock...it just goes with everything in my book!!
