First up is the new set Wild Flowers by Melanie...........


I am hostessing one of the Stamp TV Anniversary Challenges to make a Memory Keeper that Gina showcased in one of her videos.  Come play along!  I used the brand new Petals and Wings designer paper along with Pure Luxury Lipstick Red and Bubblegum Pink.  Two of my most FAVE Pure Luxury colors!!!  I actually anchored the image panel to the bottom of the Keeper so that the top flap can easily stay put when slid into place.  Both the Memory Keeper and the Info Cards are also available as free templates at Stamp TV on our Freebies Tab!!

Now here's a fabulous set Masculine Tags by Tami.........


Since it's a masculine card I did cut down on the bling! LOL  But I snuck in a little bit!  Heehee!  I used the Casual Friday designer paper and Pure Luxury in Black Onyx and Sweet Corn.  I used the Scor Pal to make a bit of texture.  I can't wait to get the Nesties that match this set.....I hand cut these to layer them.  I love the sentiments in this set.....my husband IS my hero and I love that I can make him a card that says just that!

Check out all the amazing designs and inspiration:
