Hey y'all!! Today we are showcasing the brand spanking new StampTv Kit, Shabby Spring!! So very excited to share with you!

I have been having a blast with this kit! Here is my first card:
I used the lined flowers and leaves for this one (and another one that I posted over on FaceBook!) I embossed the flowers and leaves with white embossing powder and they are stamped onto colored cardstock, no coloring of any type on this one. I used some corrugated cardstock that is from the Silhoutte Store (yes! I finally caved and bought a Silhouette! :D) I added some scattered rhinestones here and there to add a tad of bling bling! :D Really a super easy card!

Next one:
I was inspired by some colors on a Thirty-One purse! :D I stamped the the umbrella onto different colored cardstock and used the Silhouette to cut out the umbrella shapes, and then paper pieced the cardstocks onto those cut outs. Some of the umbrellas are popped up and some are not...helps give it dimension! Ok, one more for now:

This card was inspired by Lee's challenge last week, Green! Iused a cutout from the Silhouette store that I had purchased, some more of that paper ribbon/cording/twine that I'm loving lately! (and hope not boring y'all with it! :D) See? Told ya Ive been having fun with this set! :D

Ready for some awesome eye candy? Just follow these links, I'm sure you will not be disappointed!!

Loving some new stuff!

Hey y'all! Thought I'd share my newest obsession as of this moment, lol! Lord knows it changes ALOT! ha!

It's called Paper Twine Cording by Maya is a picture:

And here is where I start unrolling it:

And a bow with it after it's unrolled:

I have used it on two cards lately. This one is a card to get me in the Spring spirit! LOL! Im one that loves the fall and winter, soooo I have to psych myself up for spring and summer! Here is the card:

I also utilize my brand spanking new Silhouette machine!! YES!! I caved and got one, lol! I got the portrait, but actually wish I had saved for another month and gotten the cameo. So many designs are geared for the size of cut you get with a cameo...yes, I do realize you can move around and resize, but im lazy and dont like to do that, lol! On this card I used some cuts I have purchased at the Silhouette store and also the cut files for the Gina K Designs stamp set I have used, Folk Filigree. LOVE it! I have cut out so many things, lol! But now I have got to put them to use on stuff!

Here is the card I did a few days ago:
On this card I also used the paper cording unrolled for a bow. This card has so much on it...Ive used a doily, molding paste, stencils...the leaves are stamped with gelatos (I colored directly on the stamp with the gelatos and then gave the stamp a quick spritz with water and stamp it really quick onto my paper, love how it turned out! One of those that it looks much better in person, lol! I always enjoy making cards like this...I loose myself in the creating, makes you forget about things for a little bit! (dealaing with some health issues! bleh!)

Thanks so much for stopping by today on my poor neglected blog! I post over and FB and STV and always forget to come write up a blog post...well not really forget, but it takes more time so I put it off and off...LOL! kwim? I plan on using some of the sprays to try and color this ribbon come back and see how that turns out! :D

Have a wonderfully creative day!
