This is a late addition to this post but it's a message from Gina K:  leave a comment on each of the blogs and I am going to randomly choose a winner who will get to choose ANY past StampTV stamp set of their very own! I will announce the winner on Tuesday morning.


I absolutely LOVE each one of my StampTV kits and I had a very difficult time deciding which of those I would choose to showcase.  However, the most recent set "Springtime Silhouettes" won out.  I love the vintage feel about this set as well as their eclectic nature.


My first card is a CAS birthday card using the gorgeous lace butterfly.  I stamped the butterfly and the sentiment in  Vivid "Tea Rose" Ink.  I used Prima roses and a Sizzix ef for detail and texture.  


My second card is using the awesome high heels from this set.  I love these heels.  They were stamped with Vivid "Raspberry" ink.  I also used Nina Bracket's Lovely Labels 2 and stamped it using Memento "Bamboo Leaves".  The DP is Kaisercraft "Chanteuse Collection"


My final card  is a recreation of a memory...I just love the dress form on this stamp set and I remember seeing something like it in my Gt. Grandmother's bedroom.  In my memory, her room had the wonderful smell of lavender and roses and there was a diffused soft lavender light that came from sun shinning through a bluish shade that she used on her window.  She always seemed to be wearing dark blue and pearls which, to me, were so beautiful.  The dress form in this set brought back that snapshot memory.  

CS GKD Pure Luxury "In the Navy", "Lovely Lavender" and "Ocean Mist".  DP is Basic Grey "Olivia".  I made the rose with satin ribbon.  The "tickets" and "Flourish" were made with my Tim Holtz dies and I stamped the sentiment from a stamp with the GKD "Fanciful Tags".  MS punch finished it off with some pearls. 

Thank you, so very much, for stopping by and I appreciate and treasure your comments.  
Now, please head on over to the extremely talented Carolina's blog she always has a fabulous project to show us.
