Sneak Peek: Free with Three "Tropical Windows"

For our last sneak peek, we have Gina's Free with Three set " Tropical Windows". Want to create some quick cards? Grab these framed flowers with the included "anytime" greetings and you're good to go!
The bold flowers Gina captured in the windows are perfect for the Direct to Stamp technique: carefully ink up the stamp's border, and then color and shade directly on your rubber with markers, using darker colors on the underside of the petals and leaves, then stamp! CS is Pure Luxury Ivory and Green Apple, both included in the new StampTV kit. I cut them out and popped the opposite rectangles (bottom left anf top right) up. Last I added the tiny framed greeting in the middle. I love the botanical of this Green Apple CS with the ivory and delicate flowers...

This next SUPER simple one uses black silhouettes stamped on Pure Luxury Ivory popped up on the new "Inspiration Mosaic", stamped in Cream White on Black Onyx CS (flipping the same image in these colors make it a "yin and yang" card LOL!)
This large geometric background is the perfect complement to the smaller framed images in the free set! (and I didn't even know Gina was releasing this until a couple weeks ago! about died when I saw the potential! I've made about 10 cards with these two sets together, many I like even more than this one, but you'll have to come to the party to see those!) I chose the "Please Come" greeting this time, black and ivory just says "black tie affair" to me!For more projects made with the stamps previewed today, be sure to check out our other Senior Design Team Member's Blogs:
