We are also showcasing the incentive set available this month called Through Thick and Thin. You will be able to create amazing card projects using these beautiful stamp sets! Have fun and be creative!





Enjoy the gorgeous inspiration samples from the team and then comment on each blog for your
chance to win a $20 Gina K Designs gift certificate! 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


First up is the new Happy Spring set from the new kit.  For my first card, I used the flowers and layered them and then put those over some hand stitching I did:


I really am loving this paper pack too...with the soft pink and gray...just gorgeous together!  And my next card, I made a little sunny day scene!  Sponged the background with the distress oxide inks (did I mention I love these, lol!)  and then colored everything else with prisma premiere pencils:


 And another sponged background with those inks (sorry!  LOL)  

I used the dies to do a cut out and had it peak through there a little bit with the polka dotted designer paper in the pack in the kit.  Super easy to make and will be easy to mail!  

And last but not least is a card that uses the new incentive:

That big ole flower is so much fun to color.  I used the Kuretake water colors and then colored pencils over that after drying.  I love how the white pencil especially gives that look it does for highlights.  

And also, I'm hosting the challenge this week on StampTV, and this is the card I have for my example:


The name of the challenge is 'What's That You Say?' and for the challenge you are to use a quote, any quote, to inspire your card.  For mine, I used the quote, 'Good things come in small packages'  and made a mini card of the large one I made!  All are welcome to play along!  Here is the link to that challenge too: (you have to be a member of StampTV to post and comment! it's free to join!  Everything is  free! :D)
