Welcome to another Gina K CSS Alumni blog hop!!!! This time we are using this weeks color challenge over at Stamp TV for our blog hop - white, fresh asparagus, and soft sand (or in my case, as close as I can get to those colors...).
Check out the color challenge here - http://www.stamptv.ning.com/
Also check out Gina's video for details on how to win a free stamp set!!!
If you are folowing the hop then you came to me from the very talented Sharri - www.istamp4u.blogspot.com/2011/03/gina-k-css-alumni-hop.html
I really like this color combo and managed to get 3 cards done - I was in a mood for clean and simple - especially for the first one.....
This first card uses 'Tree Silhouettes' by Gina. I stamped the group of bare trees in the backround with antique linnen distress ink and the main tree and phrase with peeled paint distress ink. I edged the panel with walnut stain distress ink and tried to decide what else to add ....and decided not to add a thing.
This second card uses the 'Hang in there' set by Theresa. I stamped the leaves on the base cardstock once then again before reinking. Then I stamped the frog image with brown memento ink and colored him with Koh-i-nor pencils (Gina K has these in her shop) - edged the panel with the brown ink and layered it to the green panel. lastly I stamped the phrase in brown. Another quick and fairly simple card - I just love this frog though, he's sooo cute :)
This last card uses 'Block Greetings' by Tami, 'A Year of Borders' by Melanie and 'Take Flight' by Gina.
I stamped the butterflys in brown memento ink onto the sand colored cardstock and layered that panel to green cardstock and to the white base.
On top I layered the block greeting stamped with peeled paint distress ink and distressed the edges and then edged them with brown ink.
In the corner I stamped the butterfly and then stamped it again on another scrap of the sand colored cardstock - colored it with koh-i-nor pencils and cut it out, layering on top.
Added some green flat-backed pearls for accent....
That's all for today ya'll - I will prepost for you for Monday and Tuesday as I start my 3 day stretch Sunday night.....I do have some 'sweet' stuff lined up so hope to see you back to visit again!!!!
