Sneek Peek Day 3: Stamp TV Kit "Spring Mix" and "Friends"

Day 3 of the previews, and we have two for you, the newest StampTV kit and the "Free with Three" set, woo hoo! The new kit "Spring Mix" contains a ginormous set of the cutest stamp greetings and images, and a fabulous assortment or card stock, including spring colors and many more, patterned papers plus coordinating ribbons, brads and EYELETS, oh my!
A few of the images have a little open space inside to stamp the greeting, one being this shy little mouse holding a sign, I added "Feel Better Soon". After coloring and cutting it out, I popped it up inside this dashed round border stamp also in the kit, which is perfect for framing up all the images, you will love it! I die cut it with a Classic Circle Nestabilitie. The card base is the new Pure Luxury Little Boy Blue, and don't you love the new beautiful 5/8" grosgrain to match?! I kept this layout simple because I wanted to use one of the patterned quarter sheets in the kit, they are some of the prettiest patterned papers Gina K has ever offered (IMHO) wait til you see them all!

Next we have the "Free with Three" "Friends", you will get so much use out of all the greetings in this set! (do you send cards to anyone who's NOT a friend? LOL!) there are no images in this set, just sentiments, so I used a floral patterned piece of Basic Grey Origins to go with the gardener part of the quote....
To add more interest to the greeting, I colored a white paper flower with Y08 Copic and then stamped my greeting onto it , making sure I left room to put a button over the little hole in the middle. Then I lined it up over my stamped greeting on the Labels Four die cut, isn't that fun, kind of like the spotlighting technique, although I don't normally do that with sentiments! I like! I was thrilled with how well stamping the words worked on the flower and how easy it still is to read. :)

I traced around my die to make a small black mat for my die cut and added the green stitched ribbon behind it. I also sponged on a little green ink before removing the die to give it a nice glow. Base is Pure Luxury Lemon Drop.
