Stamp TV Kits Blog Hop

It is time once again for the Center Stage Spotlight team to have another blog hop and this time our hop is focused on the Stamp TV Kits. There have been quite a few kits since Stamp TV started  (17 kits to be exact!), and I used three of them to make my card for this hop! I hope you came here from the blog of the very talented Linda Payne. If you didn't and would like to start the hop from the very beginning, go back to here at Stamp TV.


I made this card to send to my sister-in-law who had emergency surgery last Saturday. She is doing fine now, but if you are so inclined, please offer up a quick prayer for a quick recovery since her daughter will be graduating from high school in a few short weeks.

Sorry for that side bar -- now about the card. I used Pure Luxury Creme de Menthe  as the base and Lemon Drop as the second layer. I embossed the white layer with one of my favorite Cuttlebug folders and added the yellow grosgrain ribbon from Gina K. The scalloped oval is Creme de Menthe again. I used Memento markers to color the flower stamp, which is from the latest Stamp TV Kit, Spring Silhouettes. The 'feel better' sentiment is also from that kit. The two butterflies came from the Spring Mix Kit and were stamped onto yellow patterned paper that came from the Spring Silhouettes Kit. Now I said I used  three of the kits to create my card, and I did. The third set I used was the Elegant Flowers Kit and the greeting is on the inside of the card (sorry - I didn't take a photo of it but it is just the greeting inside so I didn't think it warranted a photo! LOL!)

I hope you enjoyed seeing my card. Now hop along to Karen's blog to see which of the kits she used for her lovely creation.

Hi it's Terrid said...

Isn't having an emergency such a draw to create a card for someone? It is like giving them a real hug or prayer to see and hold, to really let them know we are thinking about them, praying for them, and sharing a part of ourselves with them! This card is elegant and your sis-in-law is blessed to have someone who cares enough to send the very best (not hallmark!) Thanks for sharing your creativity!
