April Stamp TV Alumni Blog Hop

What a fun hop this is going to be!! If you came from Karen Knegten's blog you are right on track.  You can begin at Stamp TV and get all the details!   Carolina at Stamp TV challenged us to use one of the following Stamp TV Kits :

  • Autumn Splendor
  • Blessed is the Season
  • Bold Flowers
  • Eclectic Summer
  • Eclectic Summer Sayings
  • Elegant Flowers
  • Enjoy the Sunshine
  • Holiday Cheer
  • Holiday Greetings
  • Organize It!
  • Picture It!
  • Sent with Love StampTV Kit
  • Signs of Autumn
  • Spring Mix
  • Springtime Silhouettes StampTV Kit
  • Thanks a Million
  • Winter Wonderland
I have most of these sets and it was a hard decision which to use. Couldn't make up my mind so I used 2 different stamp sets on the first card.   The "thank you" sentiment and butterflies stamped on vellum and colored with Copics are from Spring Mix, the little dotted box is from Organize It and the flower is made of tissue paper with a little brad   This was a fun -- and easy card to make.  The green textured paper is from one of Gina K's free downloads and the pink/green flower paper is from a Stamp TV Card Kit.


Here is another card.  The sentiment is from Spring Mix and is heat embossed with White EP.  I used Gina K cardstock in the colors of  Chocolate, Turquoise Sea and White, with a scrap of misc dp and a die cut clock make up the main part of the card.



Now hop along to  Jennie Harper's blog.  I know you will enjoy the colors she used!  After the last one, please be sure to leave a comment at Stamp TV.

Thank you for looking at my card --- I hope you have a HAPPY stamping day!
