CSS Challenge Blog Hop

It's time for another CenterStage Spotlight Challenge Blog hop!


Hostess: Jessica Fick {Design Team Coordinator}
Theme:
Stamp and color the image on Patterned Paper
{ any occasion card acceptable, it doesn't have to be Christmas themed}
{ image may be cut out and layered, but must be stamped and colored on patterned paper}
Requirement: any GinaK Designs stamp set & Glitter
Bonus Challenge: decorate the inside of your card to coordinate

OK, there's the challenge - and here are my TWO cards...only did two since this is a BIG blog hop!

This one is for those of you who don't want to do a lot of coloring..this is it! Using the patterned background paper really saves time...stamped the pincone images onto dp of pine so only needed to color the pinecones!




the inside is stamped  - no coloring! sponged stamped corner and edged paper with green ink

Stamps: GKD's "Winter Foliage", "Holiday Greetings", "Holiday Wishes" and "Very Merry Christmas"
Paper: GKD's All Spruced Up and white, dp from stash
Ink: Memento's Rhubarb and Bamboo, Vivid's Coffee Bean, SU's caramel
Embellishments: nesties, ribbon and gold cord, paper punching upper corner, copics on front pinecones and stickles!

This second one involves some coloring (which I love to do!) used Copics on the fireplace image...stickles on ivy on mantle and in the fireplace...



I really liked how the fireplace turned out stamped onto the patterned paper!
The sentiment is raised on the image and the image is raised on the card...

Stamps:  GKD's "Very Merry Christmas" and "Sandy Claws"
Paper:  GKD's Cranberry and Kraft, fireplace stamped on SU dp from stash and Basic Grey
Ink: Memento's Rhubarb and Black, SU's caramel
Embellishments: nesties, gold and clear stickles, GKD ribbon, dimensionals

Hope you like these and found something to inspire you...now let's go hopping !!!
