Stamp TV Release Party Cards

This is my sample for GKD's Warm with Love, illustrated by my friend Theresa Momber.  The release party is going on right now so pop on over.  Stamp TV.  I sponged this card, and than cut out the circle with my nesties.  I also cut another colored circle out and popped them back into place.  I love this look, just a different kind of spotlighting.
On this card I used the new GKD Perfect Pennants, illustrated by Tami Mayberry.  I just found this type of 3 layered background and I love this!  I inked up my acrylic pad, spritz it with water (quite wet) and stamped the paper.  With  this particular card I did not use water paper (I probably should have - it does give it a more blended effect), and it does work.  I than used Vintage Backgrounds for the dots.  I used the pennants in a flower way for a different idea on using pennants.  This set is so easy to cut with all the nice, straight lines.
 And finally, I got a request from Tami to try to use the pennant on a golf course.  This is my 4th attempt and I had to go with it.  I sent this to my friend Theresa and asked her "how to add depth, she told me, but I am a visual learner and if I can't "see it" I struggle.  As you can tell, not much depth going on here! LOL.  I told Theresa she can make one and I will follow her awesome tutorial and make it again!  LOL.  I think she thought I was kidding... not so much. :)  I do like the idea of a golf card since seriously? EVERYONE (except me & DH) golf in the state of Arizona!  It is the perfect card for most of my Arizona fiends!
That is it for me tonight.  Hopefully, you saw this and were able to make the party!
Be sure and stop by tomorrow, the official Gina K Designs DT Blog Hop starts with all the new releases for March!  There are some killer stamps~~  Thanks for stopping by~

Had to laugh at the placement of the sentiment on the last card :) Not so sure hubby would like to hang out in a sand trap on the golf course LOL! Great spotlighting on the first card and funky pennant card.
