 I love this new StampTv Kit  &  
Stamp Set by Melanie Muenchinger 
I have lots to show you, So lets get started.  First up is two cards 
made with the new StampTv Kit  " The Simple Things " 
I used From the Kit - Fresh Asparagus &
Cranberry Tart Pure Luxury Card Stock.
The Wonderful 6x6 Patterned Paper Pack& the Leaf image. 
I also used Gina K Designs Pure Luxury White Layering weight and
White Vintage Cuts, along with Gina K Designs New White Fine Detail
 Embossing Powder. I'm Loving that stuff.
Added some Pearls and Dk. Red Bling from my stash.

The other card made with the new "The Simple Things" STV Kit.

On this one I used Gina K Designs -  Dk. Choc., Honey Mustard,
Tomato Soup, & Kraft Card Stock with the pumpkin stamped on Ivory.
 I also used Gina K Design Dk. Choc. Embossing Powder.
 Dk. Choc. & Tomato Soup Inks along with Dk. Choc. Ribbon.
I Love the Stamps that are in this new kit.
Heck this kit is so full of wonderful things… :)


This card I combined two stamp sets.

The Image & Sentiment is from "The Simple Things" and
the Flower stamp on the belly band, the swirly design above and
 below the oval, as well as the inner dotted oval is all in the
New Stamp Set Fabulous Frame Fillers By: Melanie Muenchinger.
I also Used Fabulous Frame By: Melanie Muenchinger on this card.
The Patterned Paper is in the Kit. All this is layered on top
 of a piece of Ivory Heavy Base Card Stock from Gina K Design.
I used Gina K Designs Dk. Choc. & Turquoise Sea Inks on this card.
I colored the frame in with a Spectrum Noir Marker.

***
This was a fun little 4x4 card I made and I know I will be making
some of these in sets of 6 or 8 to give as Christmas Gifts.


I used the New Stamp Set "Fabulous Frame Fillers"
By: Melanie Muenchinger.
I love the swirly image and the flowers. The little stamps
are so dainty and perfect for small thank you notes.
I used Gina K Designs Ivory Card Stock in Heavy weight
and Turquoise Sea Ink.
***
Here is one more tiny little Thanks card.
It is  2 1/2 x 3 1/2. I will use sentiments from the Fabulous Frame
set also to make little note cards and put in my husbands
lunch are leave a note for a friend at times, and these are perfect.
