Nina's Lovely Shelf Blog Hop

Welcome to my blog.  I'm so excited to be participating in Nina Brackett's blog hop for Stamp TV   featuring Nina's newest stamp set "Lovely Shelf".  I've had soooooo much fun creating with this set.  It's delightfully feminine and expresses warm and loving sentiments for so many creative cards or other projects.  If you haven't purchased this set yet, put it on your list.  You'll absolutely LOVE (LY) it.

For this hop, I used only the stamps from this set....however, these stamps are soooooo universal you can mix and match them with many other stamps sold at GKD and especially other stamps designed by Nina .

Thanks for hopping by after viewing my cards, continue on the hop by linking to my StampTV designer friends' blogs and enjoy all the treats they've created.

Don't forget to hop over to Gina's Blog and leave a comment for a chance to win Lovely Shelf or any other set by Nina Brackett if you already have this one. {How cool is THAT?}

Thanks again for stopping to view my cards.  Please leave a comment if you can.


For this card I used:
Distressed Cuttlebug folder background, partially embossed.
Papers:  GKD Pure Luxury White, Rocket Red, Good as Gold and All Spruced Up.
Ribbon:  GKD Holiday collection
Nesstabilities Ovals Large

Layers of GKD Pure Luxury CS, Good as Gold, All Spruced Up, Cranberry Tart.
Cuttlebug "candy cane" folder for card layer background, "Victoria" CB folder for bouquet layer.
Nesstabilities: large ovals for sentiment and bouquet
Punch:  MS
Bouquet is colored with Prismacolor Art Markers
Bouquet is sponged with Ranger distress inck, Aged Mahogany"

Talk about's one I did all in silver.
The lamp in this set lends itself to so many gorgeous opportunities.
The dp is from GKD digi papers, and the CS layers are GKD Pure Luxury Moonlit Fog and Silver Lining.
Punchs used, MS and Paper Shapers Swirl Flourish.
Ink:  ColorBox Sliver

Not so feminine....but then maybe it is....I was going to put flowers in the corner of the shelf but wanted to keep it plain so it could be suitable for either man or woman. (But then some men appreciate flowers as much as women...I can add them later)
The colors I used here are GKD Pure Luxury Soft Sand and a turquoise color I had in my stash.
Inks were Ranger Distressed Inks "Broken China", Mustard Seed, Antique Linen, Memento Rich Cocoa and Bahama Blue.
Ribbon is from GKD.
