I hope you enjoyed my projects, leave me a comment and let me know what you think.  Hop on over to Terri's and see what she has to share.


  1. Kath, your cards are all so spectacular! I love them! Thank you for sharing them with us and being a part of our hop!

  2. Kath, you've reminded me that I don't use my Circle flip thinlits enough. Your first sample is really elegant. Love the new In-Colours.

  3. Gorgeous additions to the hop Kath! And a great reminder to get my own flip die out and play. I don't think I can pick a favorite this time as I love all three. The map and train of the second card meld so well together. The floating, spinning butterflies in the third are gorgeous and the simplicity,color and style of the first are perfect. Wouldn't that first be a great invite to a Luau? Thanks for getting my creative juices flowing again. Hugs - J.

  4. Gorgeous cards, Kath!! I love the flip cards. And I just got the Traveler set. What a great idea to use it with the map. TFS!!

  5. Kath, thank you so much for being part of the May blog hop. What wonderful projects you've created! I love the Circles Card thinlit die and find it always lends a WOW factor to a card. The way you've used it along with so many of the new In-Colors for that first card makes me want to do a CASE right now. The map is exactly right for your train from the Traveler set. What a great Father's Day card. One question: does that butterfly in your third card actually spin. I love it!

  6. Wow - you've totally outdone yourself, Kath! I love the flowers on the 1st card - you made those with the Boho blossoms punch?? I think you've convinced me to get the Traveler set - it's perfect how you used it with the World Map stamp. Like the others have said - you've reminded me to use my Flip Card Die more!! Thanks so much for sharing :)

  7. Kath, LOVELY cards! I can't pick which I like best because they are all wonderful.

  8. Love your flowers! The use of the World Map as a background for Traveller is awesome too, I got the stamp just for that reason!

  9. Beautiful cards, Kath. I really am in love with the Blackberry Bliss color. It's almost a neutral because it goes with so many other colors.

  10. A great selection of "wow" cards Kath. The first card with the flowers is simply stunning! Great mix of sets and colours. TFS.

  11. Fantastic projects, Kath. Love the spinner card.

  12. Wow, Kath! Every one of these is one I'd like to CASE - thanks for sharing them!
