Hope Grows and Candles on Your Cake!

Welcome back to Day 2 Previews!

We're previewing two more new stamp sets tonight that will be available this Thursday night after GinaK's Release Party!  My first card was made using Theresa Momber's beautifully elegant stamp set called Hope Grows.  I decided to use the Polished Stone technique for my card tonight...

Card Details
Stamps: Hope Grows
Ink: Black Stazon; Ranger alcohol inks for polished stone technique
Cardstock: GinaK; glossy
Other: Blending felts and ink tool; green satin ribbon, victoria cuttlebug embossing folder

Theresa has included some beautiful images in her new stamp set and I can't wait to see all her samples and tutorials she'll be sharing with it!  If you haven't subscribed to her blog yet, you MUST!  With almost all of her blog posts, she takes the time to share step by step photos of how she creates her works of art.  Her blog is very inspirational and educational and one that I love to get in my inbox every day!  Thanks, Theresa, for all your hard work for us!

My next card features Melanie's new stamp set called Candles on Your Cake.  This stamp set is PACKED with fun birthday themed images and sentiments!  Melanie is at it again with another huge stamp set and I for one can't wait to see all her ideas and tips she has for us with it!

I went with a 'scrappy' feel with my card - using a die cut alphabet and lots of circles to mimic the circles in the party hat!

Card Details
Stamps: Candles on Your Cake
Ink: Memento; Distress
Cardstock: GinaK
Other: Quikutz alphabet dies & embossing folder, EK Success border punch, sewing machine, Spellbinder tag die; twill ribbon; copic markers, stickles, blending foam
