Introducing Hope Blooms and Ladies & Gents!

Hello friends! Welcome to our previews of the SIX new stamp sets that will be released on Saturday, July 21st for your crafting pleasure! Today we begin with two very lovely sets... one by Karen Baker called Hope Blooms, and the other by Elizabeta Kushner called Ladies & Gents.

I'm showcasing the entire cards/projects created by our design team, stamp illustrators and guest designer so that you can easily refer back later for inspiration! However, I do hope you'll stop by for the details and show the girls some love. :) They adore hearing from you!

First my cards... don't fall out of your chair... I really did make cards this month. Could it be that my mojo is finally coming home to roost? We'll see!

Your design team and guest designer did this release proud. And your card creation with the top hat - definitely going to try to recreate that as it is one of the neatest masculine cards I've seen ... love your pairing the stripes with the polka dots, and the color choices were what made this for me! And thanks for a chance to win such a generous prize!
