Is it spring yet?

Hi friends,

I've been working on cards a little at a time, then took pictures last night. So it seems like I've been really busy, but have not - just doing a bit here and a bit there until each card was completed.

The first card uses the Stately Flowers 4 stamp set by Melanie Muenchinger for GKD. The salmon pink shimmer embossed layers are from Anna Griffin. She has such romantic colors and feminine creations that I simply LOVE :) It was a lot of fun and inspiration watching her on HSN this last Monday. Yup, I ordered some new products {sigh}.

The top left ribbon is an idea I saw on one of Anna Griffin's cards - she pulled ribbon down on both sides of the corner into the bow - had to CASE that part. Embossed image and sentiment in gold, colored with Copic markers. The rhinestones are a beautiful blush color IRL.

The next four cards are using Hula Riley which I think is really Sophie :D  The hula skirts are 3D, cut into thin shimmery slits and flared up a bit with my fingers. I painted the flowers and stems with Perfect Pearls and added Stickles whenever possible!

And finally a card made using the new StampTV kit by GKD. The stamp set is Warm Spring Wishes. I used white embossing powder, fussy cut the flowers and leaves out, tied some plain embroidery thread into a bow and added Sakura clear glitter pen to outline the embossed butterflies. I sprinkled some clear glitter around the pearl centers of the flowers. The inside of the card is the last picture for today.

The inside is stamped with Gina K. white pigment ink, clear glitter pen to highlight the flowers and butterfly.

Thank you very, very, VERY much for stopping by today!!!!
