Onto my cards.....  I had 3 of the new stamp sets to play with and this is what I have created for you

My first card uses the Thinking of You set.  I started of by stamping the word stamp onto ivory card using some Melon Mambo ink, and then die cut with a stitched rectangle, the butterfly stamp is from my stash,  (Happy Little Stampers have a fabulous little set of butterflies). I stamped it in Pacific Point ink and then fussy cut out.  I used a blender ben to colour in using Melon Mambo and Tempting Turquoise ink.  I love the font of this sentiments and think I will be using it lots!! i stamped it in Pacific Point.  I used some foam pads to mount the panel onto my card base.

My next card uses the same Thinking of You set and I have used memento Rich Cocoa ink for all the stamps. I created a little frame using stitched rectangle dies and then popped the little panel up with foam pads.  I added a little butterfly and sentiment all from the same set.


This is the 3rd card using the Thinking of You set, I have again stamped in memento Rich Cocoa I die cut both panels with a stitched rectangle die and mounted the Thanks onto my card with some foam pads.


I have used the Mix Mash set for this card.  I started off with a panel created with brusho's and then randomly stamped the circle stamps all over with some versa mark ink before brushing over some Perfect Pearls to create a bit of Bokeh effect.  The sentiment is from the same set.


For my next two cards I have used the Birthday Friends set.
For the first card I have used the little elephant stamp and added a balloon.  I coloured the image using promarkers and added a sentiment from the Mix Mash set. 


I have used the cute little hippo stamp and again coloured with promakers.  The sentiment is from the same set.  I used some Pacific Point ink for the banner and also for under the hippo's feet.



I hope I have inspired you today with my cards. The designers and I have had so much fun playing with these stamps! Next you need to hop on over to
