If you came here from the incredibly talented Lanette Erickson's blog, you are in the right place.  You can start the hop from the beginning so you don't miss any of the talented goodness from these designers.  

Here are some cards I made using the new stamps: 

I'm a vintage junkie and wanted to show off this adorable stamp "Red Lipstick Day"  in a CAS way.  She was colored with watercolor brush pens and Inktense watercolor pencils on watercolor paper.  

I used a combination of techniques to create this card, using "Olive Branch" .  The bg is water colored after stamping and heat embossing white ep to create a resist.  I then put the image back in the MISTI and re-stamped with a darker blue ink after moving it slightly from the original position to give a shadow effect.  The sentiment is "Merry Christmas 2".

What an awesome bg stamp this "Textured Stars" is.  It's loaded with texture and design and can be used with so many mediums.  I have lots of ideas for this stamp in the future.  For this card, I laid some Distress Oxide Inks direction on the stamp and spritzed with water.  Then taking a piece of watercolor paper I layed it over the inked stamp and set aside.  I then took a second piece of watercolor paper and without re-inking or adding any more water, I layed it over what was left on the stamp, getting a second generation image.  I loved the results.  The bg on this stamp is the first inking and the second generation is die cut raised off the first.  I used "Perspective"  silhouette stamp to accent the bg.  

That's it for me today.  I hope you found some inspiration and enjoy the hop.  Now, head on over to my incredibly talented friend Kathy Stacy's blog and see her fabulous creations.

OMG - you really brought it this hop! I'm in love with the Olive Branch card. The unexpected color combo and the shadow are genius. The colors on the textured stars is divine too. Great job, girl!

Fabulous group of cards. I especially like the last one with all the pretty colours on the stars. Great pairing of stamps on that card too.

Wow! The first card reminds me of my mom and the bottom card of my daughter. You've captured two generations with the stamps and your style. And, the olive branch was something that we passed around often. Thanks for the inspiration and the memories!
