STV Challenge

Oh, I'm so sorry, circumstances today prevented me from finishing up my tip sheet for you, and I don't want to post it prematurely without including everything I can think of for the new set! BUT in the meantime, here is a sample I created before our release which very coincidentally meets Cathy's Recipe challenge from our release, you have until Monday to enter for a chance to win a GKD set! Cat was pretty specific on this one: at least three bits of bling, one layer (but she said you could cut out and add your focal point to that layer), NO DP, and two rounded corners! I laughed out loud when she posted her sample and saw how similar her card and mine were! (I am a big fan, so guess I just want to be more like her!) I've made several cards with the different "Buds and Vases" containers resting on of the new label stamps, either from "Labeled with Love" (shown hre) or "Lovely Labels 2", will be shaking the others soon, and I love how they can look like a little doily, platter or placemat underneath! Flowers are masked and stamped twice, also added a couple additional stamped single flowers to make it even fuller and give more dimension, colored with Copics, centers are adhesive pearls, base is Kraft (edges swiped with Cream White pad to give if a softer look), label is stamped on Lovely Lavender, ribbon is Pure Luxury.


Happy World Card Making Day! I actually had another project that needed my attention, which I will be sharing more about soon! and, it does involve card making!


More later, hope you are enjoying this beautiful weekend! :)
