I know how much you love thse Pure Innocence stamps.....AND it's awesome that once again this month, you can get two of the newest cuties in your hot little hands early. Thanks to  some tips from my fellow MFT DT gal pals about stream lining our stamping and trying to craft "faster", I decided to give it a go.  One of the tips that really resonated with me, was making multiple cards with similar products.  That's what I did today.  I used the same colors schemes and sampe papers (My Mind's Eye-), but I was able to come up with three different samples for you today....AND I love them.
First up is my VIOLIN GIRL card.  I used my trick for extending the length  of my MIX & MATCH BANNER PIECE. 

 You can see my picture tutorial over on my Creative Challenge Post, to learn how to do this.

I also tied in the same banner piece along the bottom to hold my sentiment.  Just stamp it and cut it out into smaller rectangles, then attach them to the banner piece.

I just love this next little sweetie.  My kids loooove blowing bubbles.  I always dread pulling out the jar of bubbles, because it ALWAYS spills....but, once you get past that, it's always so much fun. 

 I used an older, Deconstructed Sketch for my card and I was excited to show off the new size of the MONARCH BORDER DIE-NAMIC (included in this month's VIP kit!).  The sentiment fit perfectly on the larger fishtail banner strip from FIRST PLACE AWARD RIBBON.
You can also see that I added some Crystal Effects to accent my bubbles and give them that life-like look to them.  Don't forget to add this product LAST, and then set your card aside to dry. 
I also played up the circle theme of the bubbles  and the MONARCH BORDER DIE and used a large circle die to cut out my main image and added a corrugated cardboard circle and a few buttons to accent.  I love carrying out a design element like circles through out my cards.
 Before I tucked my supplies away, I made up a quick tag so I had a good excuse to show off one of the cute, heartfelt sentiments included in the FREE mini set you'll get with this months kit. The quote was stamped on the inside of the FIRST CLASS FRIEND postage die-namic.

A PRETTY POSIE FLOWER, TWINE, and a button finished off the details of this tag.

KIM's blog has all the VIP release details...plus the list of beautiful samples by the DT.
