Designs stamps! To see the full list of winners check the Big News forum at Stamp TV a couple of days after the hops!!






I think MY sea and Lee Murphy's sea would be soooo pretty with her pink turtles and my purple fish!!! :-)  I decided since I did some "regular" fish in my card I showed at the Release Party, I'd have some fun TINA fish to share today. Hee

My card base is Pure Luxury Lovely Lavender layered with some Vibrant Violet and then some of the fabulous GK Patterned Paper Pack, "Parisian Garden".  I added a bit more Vibrant Violet and then some more of the Patterned Paper, "Pool Side".  My images are stamped on white and colored with my Copic markers.  I sponged on some Memento Sky Blue ink around the edges and also stamped the tiny solid fish in LuLu Lavender. 



Once again I decided to go against the norm.  I didn't want to do brown suitcases nor did I want to paper piece so... I went with greys and blues!!

My card base is Pure Luxury Black Onyx  layered with some Moonlit Fog and Smokey Slate.  My DP is from an older paper set that Gina use to carry.  I stamped my image on White and colored with Copic markers.  I used my Labels 7 Nestabilities.  I thought this would be a great cover for keeping memories of a vacation or any road trips you might, so I the Labels 7 was perfect for such a design.


Now check out all the amazing designs and inspiration from the design team:

As always, thanks for stopping by and remember to come back tomorrow for our final inspiration hop featuring the May Release!!

Have a great day!  *HUGS*
