StampTV CSS July sketch hop


Hallo,
   Welcome to another Gina K CSS hop - this time we are all using this great sketch and using sets from December 2012 through May 2013
   I just squeezed some mula outta the budget and got a couple sets I have been wanting - the set I used today is 'Posterboard Sentiments' from Gina K of course.
   If you are following along the hop then you came from Miesje  http://miesdf.blogspot.com/2013/07/css-sketch-blog-hop-7-9-2013.html   and I am sure she had some great inspiration for you!!
     I am last on the list this time around so just make sure you leave some sweet comments along the way because we will be drawing a random winner of a grab bag of Gina K products - check for the announcement on Tuesday the 16th.
  As usual I couldn't decide what colors I wanted to use so I ended up with 2 cards - I love how you can get such different looks with the same sketch !!!
   The base cardstock for both of my cards is Gina K pure luxury - sweet corn.
  For the first card I turned the sketch a bit. I cut the top 2 layers with Spellbinders dies and added some pearl drops  with a viva décor pen and added a charm from my stash - I added 2 ribbons one is yellow to match the base cardstock (it looks darker here though...) and one that had the blue and green in it.
   For the second card I used the same dies and did a bit more distressing to the edges and curled 2 of the corners. I used the yellow ribbon again with a similar ribbon to the first card only different colors. I also used a viva décor pen too and a corner charm.
   All for tonight - hope you enjoyed our hop!!!
       Take Care
           Tera

GREAT way to make the most out of one stamp, Tera!! I loved that touch of rolled corner on your birthday card. Nice touch.

Wonderful cards. Great demonstration of how the same stamp and elements can create two totally different cards. The brown one would make a great guy card.
