Tropical Windows

Good evening!

Hasn't it been a fun seeing all the preview samples this week? I love seeing everyone's designs every release and this has certainly not been the exception this month! Tonight is our last night of previewing before the party begins tomorrow night in GinaK's Forum on SCS. It starts at 7 pm CST - mark it on your calendars because it's going to be a blast! I have a ton more samples to share during the party and know that many of the other Design Team members do as well!

Tonight, we're showcasing Gina's new Free with Three stamp set called Tropical Windows. I adore this set - the flowers are so fresh and fun and the sentiments she's included in the set... well, let's just say I must love them because you've seen them on several of my cards already this week!

For my first card tonight, I decided to use a sentiment from Gina's new Signs of Autumn StampTV kit - so I could make this into a thank you card. I colored the images in with a couple of Memento Markers as well as the new Stampin Up pink and blue markers.

Then, I took my Versamark pen and traced over the stamped lines and embossed with detail clear embossing powder. This added a really nice subtle shine to the image and was quick and easy to do.

For the inside, I inked only the flowers and stamped them along with another Signs of Autumn sentiment. Quick and easy - isn't this a bright and cheerful thank you card?

I had to share this card with you tonight too because I wanted to show how gorgeous the other main image is in this set...

I used Basic Grey's Lemonade patterned papers for this card - oh, how I adore these patterns!! I inked the image with a several Memento markers - using a lighter and darker marker on each part of the image to get some great shading. After I assembled the card together, I took some colored Stickles and applied them to all the stamped lines. The sparkle on this card is so much fun!

The inside is quick and easy - just enough room to jot a little note to a friend, but still pretty with more of the Lemonade paper and those gorgeous Prima flowers.
