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 Melanie's set, Fabulous Rose Frames...this set just as itself is sooo awesome!  And I love the possibilities with all the goodies in this set!  Mel, as usual, thinks her sets out, down to the tiniest of images having a special purpose!  This set does that!  AND, the dies for it can be purchased separately!  Here is my first card I wanted to show you:

For this card.....Ok, so in the past I have made flowers using tissue paper   and would kinda watercolor the edges of the flower ...I first embossed the image onto tissue paper, and you have to be very careful when doing the heat gun to it, or it will burn the paper!  (Ask me how I know this!  LOL)  Then I add the watercoloring, and I will dry as I go along.  It's such a really cool effect and feel IRL! 

   Up next I have Theresa Mombers new set, The Wetlands 2....Here is what I have done :


I just stamped the image of one tree then cut into strips and moved them uneven like that.  and then I also used that same background paper I made on this set:




For this card, I used some water color markers and went back and forth with the different colors.  I then stamped the trees, masking off the little bottom reflection part that looks like water.  I meant to give the trees a shadow on the 'ground'  but forgot to do that until just now as Im writing up this blog post, lol!   I like how this turned out too, super easy! 

Ok, ready for some  more eye candy:!  Here is the link list!
