Up first I have those absolutely adorable owls!  Wise Old Owls!  Here is what I have done with this set:

Super simple and CAS creation!  I just stamped them out, then die cut each one, the purple owl is layerd 3 times to give it more depth.  I also made a  little house for the owl LOL!
I used a die for the littler house, then colored and die cut the owl after coloring with copics, and also stamped, colored and die cut one of the swirl images from Boho Flowers to decorate his little house with, too cute huh?  LOL!

Next up, Peony Wishes!  For my first card I was going for a Vintage feel...


I heat embossed and then watercolored the flowers, distressed the edges with ink and layers the bow with two different silk ribbons and some twine.  The button came from a friend, back when I asked if anyone had any old buttons they didnt want.  :D 

Next, the new incentive stamp, Grand Greetings.  LOVE these big sentiments!

I helped the awesome Karen Hightower out this week with the Friday Funday tutorial...for this card I created the background by painting with salt water.  (A link to the tutorial is HERE on StampTV)

I am sooo loving this kit!  I know I say that every time, but I truly mean it every single time, lol!  This was a super easy card, using the dies that come in the kit is really awesome and so glad to have that now!  it just makes the cards look so , professional and finished kwim?  I just did simple coloring on this one and then cut out and popped up.  tada!  done!  



On this next one, well, it looks much better IRL, lol!  I did a vellum overlay, and used a die to cut out the flower shape So I could pop the top layer of the flower I made, to have it coming through the die cut open spot.  I used a glitter embossing powder on the butterfly...just cut it out with the die too and then added the glitter. The swirls were also cut out of vellum and then I placed them behind the flower.

To see who won, check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hop. Ready for some inspiration? Here are a few of the projects I have created for today’s hop:


For my first card I used the script patten paper and used Gina K'd Fancy Foil  in Passionate Pink.  

I stamped that big gorgeous flower in Passionate Pink and then colored with Prisma Pencils to add shading.  Super easy!  


And my next card I used that fun bicycle image:


Some of you might remember me showing these little tissue paper squares that i picked up at the Dollar Tree...well, I finally used them on a card!  They are glued on with just some MS glue.  The bicyle was colored with Prisma pencils.  And then just stamped the sentiment right on top of the tissue papers, popped up the bicycle and tied a bow...all done!  :D

And now, last but not least and Billy's pick of the crop...using kraft cardstock:

This uses the new Incentive stamp set, Rose Bouquet.  I love how this turned out!  I stamped the image with versamark ink, used a black glitter embossing powder for the flowers.  Then I cut the flowers out around the corner there.  Tied another bow (on the left side...AGAIN?  What's up with me doing that!??!  haha!)  todo!  All done and I think the cutting around the flowers really added a unique touch to this card!
