I am so glad you stopped by today.
 I have cards made with two new stamp sets. 
First I have 
Theresa Momber's - Vertical Greetings 2

On this card I used Gina K Designs products in:
Pure Luxury Card Stock - Turquoise Sea, Black Onyx, 
Fresh Asparagus & White layering weight. Black/White Gingham Ribbon, & a Black Brad. 
I used Spectrum Noir markers-BT- 1,2,3,4,5 DG-2,3
 CR-10 to color the focal image. 


*****
This card I showed at the release party. 
I used that wonderful flower image again and colored it with
 Spectrum Noir markers & pencils.
 Gina K Designs Products that I used are:
Pure Luxury Card Stock : Red Hot, Black Onyx, Wild Dandelion.
Inks: Cherry Red, Red Hot, & Black. Ribbon
*
Momentos Black ink for the image. White gel pen and bling. 

*********

The next set today is Beth Silaika's : 
Keep Calm
This is a fun set, can be used so many ways.
On this card I curved the sentiments 
for the center panel. 
I thought the gentle wave action of the words 
was kinda calming.
I used Gina K Designs Pure luxury card stock
 in Sweet Corn,Dark Chocolate.
Dark chocolate Ink to match. The DP is from the new
 6x6 paper pack "Ang & Me." 
Added bling.  :)

***
This one was fun to make. I haven't used glitter in a while. 
So I did what the stamp said…
I keep calm and added glitter.  
I think this is what it would look like
 at the end of a glitter snow storm.
 I used Gina K Designs  Heavy Base White
 pure luxury card stock & Innocent Pink. 
Ink is Innocent Pink.
Glitter was from my stash.


 These sets are available at :
