TCM Blog Hop


It was quite a frazzled week for me...Coupled with the fact that Canada Post delivered my stamps barely in the nick of time...I've had to miss all the fun during the previews...But I am so grateful to have the stamps in my possession right now, and so happy to be here celebrating TCM's May release with you today :)

If you've arrived from Amy's blog, then you're in the right place. If not, head back to TCM for a full list of blog hop stops!

Today, I've got several cards I've created with some of my the cutest, most lovable stamps ever! I know I say that every release, but seriously...With designs like these, I can't help but want to stamp
All. Day. Long.
!!!


I've used the beautiful 'Giddy Up' stamp set here...Which I loooooove! Best part?
It's a FREE set with any $50 purchase from TCM this month!


The lovely images (sweet girl, tags, spool tags, ruler) are from Bety's Etsy shop, and the I've stamped the frame and sentiment with the GORG TCM stamp set.


Other fun things I've used on this card...Pretty washi tape by Queen & Co. It's such a fun way to add a punch of colour!  Buttons are by Fancy Pants, and the background paper is from Bo Bunny...The best part of this card was that it was a breeze to pull together! With sweet images, delicious stamps and all the right toppings, how can a girl not have fun?!


Next card, I've used the same stamp again - I imagine you're not surprised. And I've even duplicated the colours again! I love the possibilities of this stamp set. Lovely western frames with gorgeous type and sentiments...So wonderfully sweet :)


I've used Iralamija's images here again, and a few items from my stash like my handmade crinkled ribbon. 


I added a few stitches on the side of the card...I messed up pretty royally while stitching...But shhhhh... No one needs to know that! It'll just be between you and me :P

Like I've said many times, sewing is not my forte...

Anywho, here's the awesome stamp set I've used for my cards today. Super cute, huh?


And just for funsies, since I missed all the previews, I've got two more cards I've created with a couple of the other stamp sets from this release!


First up, an inspirational card using the 'Inspired by Audrey' stamp set, which is probably one of the most lovely stamp sets I've ever had in my possession. The quotes are so heartfelt and the pretty frames are purely elegant.


I've used some more of my handmade crinkled ribbon here, along with a few more images from Bety's shop.


I've combined several sets for this next card. The pretty horse image, and the two frames are from the 'Giddy Up' set, the fence and butterfly from the 'Nature's Beauty' set, the cute flowers (with the rhinestones in the centres) and the sentiment are from the 'Inspired by Audrey' set.


I used what little scraps I had left of the patterned paper, washi tape and my own handmade buttons and roses.


Just a quick note about the pretty paper flower on this card...It was gifted to me by my sweet friend Bonnie and I cannot forget send my gratitude

~~Thank you so much, Bonnie~~

Your flowers are unlike any other :)


Well, enough showy-showy from me...Now it's time for you to move on and check out the rest of the team's creations!
