new stamps....

If you are here for the Lily Pad Cards Blog Hop, that post is HERE. Thanks.

My Fab Five winnings arrived this week:

I'm having so much fun with these...the Basic Grey cling flowers were used on the card HERE. I used the Small Solid Flower and Large Open Flower to make the background on this card:

This also features Hero Hues patterned paper and some Tim Holtz Tissue Tape. The subtle blue background was done using a Faber-Castell Gelato to ink my HA Floral Brocade Cling, then misting it with water, this is a second generation stamping. The Bird Collage was stamped over the top using Coffee Archival ink.

I also got a special package from Jane in Croatia. I ordered a Jane's Doodles Jane's Bakery Stamp set and some of the delicious buttons from her Etsy shop "Plain Jane".  Jane is so sweet, she even threw in some freebies; green buttons and some fun SRM stickers.
I'm looking forward to having some quality crafting time with those!

I've got one last card to share. It's made with Unity stamps and coordinating Cosmo Cricket Upcycle papers.

I  added Cosmo Cricket Upcycle Butterflies and Doilies Lovely Bits and twine from the Twinery.
