In love with TAC's soon to be released stamps!

I'm in love with the new stamps that will be coming out in a few weeks for TAC. Today I played with the new butterfly set, and the new skunk set! I can't remember what they're called, so please forgive me for that. When I get the names, I'll add them. I'm getting excited about the new magalogue coming out this month. It's a new thing for TAC, so I'm looking forward to seeing exactly what a magalogue is. I like how Barb calls it Maggie. I like Maggie better! I've been at my crafting desk all day, because I'm just loving these sets!

Anyhow, I was a little worried about the butterfly set when I saw it, because it's so pretty and elegant. I find it hard to pull that style together. (I normally do cute!) I gotta say I didn't have that issue with this set! I made two cards so far. One I loved so much, I'm not showing it, as I'm gonna enter it into a TAC contest! I was that pleased with the card, and it was my first time playing with the set! The second one I thought it turned out great, maybe I'd do the Terrific Trio contest instead of the one I was thinking about entering! But decided not to change my mind, and here is the second card I made. I'm saying, this set is WOW! I love it! It's so darn pretty! Supplies: TAC stamp set, and paper Angelee SWIC, nesties, lyra watercolor crayons, prima flowers, DCWV cardstock, Versamark Java ink pad, stickles.

Than I played with the skunks some. I mentioned finding some great paper pads at Michael's on sale. I used a set I found there called Sabrina by Making Memories. It's a 6x6 pad, filled with soft pink, and black papers. What goes better with a skunk than black?! The cardstock is SU's pretty in pink. The sentiment is from TAC's Abundance is, one of my favorite sentiment sets from TAC. The ribbon I found at Michaels this week, with some new spring released ribbon. Other supplies: gems on the ribbon, nesties, SU word punch window, stickles, SU scallop punch, pretty in pink ink pad.



Than I grabbed Bittersweet by Basic Grey, as it had the black and brown in it's color scheme, and that worked perfectly for an old fashioned tub. I think that card turned out darling if I do say so myself! And one of my K and Co packs matched the Bittersweet perfectly. I even mastered the embossing feature of the nesties, so I did that a few times on the cards today too! Than I had TAC's sentiment set called Little things, and had the perfect sentiment for her! I found the layout on CPS blog.



Other supplies: prima flowers, SU purely prom. cardstock, DCWV cardstock, nesties, stickles, SU word punch window, gems, brad.
