Sent with Love...

Happy Saturday!
This weekend is getting off to a terrific start
as it is the first day of the 
New Release Previews from

Four days featuring
 with an opportunity to win each new release!

I adore my teammate Nina Brackett and always look forward
to her new stamp designs and today, we get a look at some
of the images from
'Lovely Labels 18' 
'Sent With Love'

For the card above, I used images from both sets.  Here you
see JUST TWO of the beautiful labels images in the set...there
are SO MANY MORE!  The sentiment is from 'Sent With Love'
which is a set that has a very nostalgic feel.
I used the beautiful papers from Prima's 'Madeline
Collection for my 'wallpaper' base and stamped my images with the
beautiful, BEAUTIFUL inks from
in Ocean, Latte & Currant.
The rest of the embellishments are listed below.
It was just a matter of layering each element until you
have the design above.

Here is a look at another design using just images
from 'Sent With Love'....

See what I mean by the 'nostalgic' feel?!

As I said earlier, we have SEVEN...
brand new sets coming your way!

Make sure you stop over at the
because there's a great giveaway going on
for both of these sets.

Leave a comment here and
let me know

favorite so far!

So happy you came by and I hope you enjoy your day!

The flower on your first card is soo fabulous. I love the combo of the ribbon and twine in the 2nd! Super cute! Love your style:)

Both cards are so inspiring. I love the soft ocean colors of the first card, and the second card is simply adorable with the double bow using the ribbon and twine, Not to mention the perfect color choices in just the right amounts to make it quite beautiful and flowy. Great job!
