CSS Alumni blog hop

Hiya stampers!

It's time for another Gina K CSS alumni blog hop! If you came from the amazingly talented Shannon Hawkins blog you are right on track! If not, please go to Stamp TV and start at the beginning of the hop...don't want to you to miss a single one of the fabulous projects tonight!

For this hop we were challenged to create a card or project based on the this sketch...

I had a lot of fun with this sketch and made two card with it.

Stamps: Tea Time
Ink: Mementos, Copics, Atyou Spica Pens
Paper: Cosmo Cricket, Old Olive, Lovely Lavender
Copic X-press It
Other: Labels 10, Scalloped Tags, Swiss Dots EF,
Ribbon, eyelets, Die-namics

For my first card I used new Tea Time stamp set. When I saw this set I fell in love with the little tea cups all stacked up so of course I had to use that image! I colored the cups with copics using colors to match Cosmo Crickets Pixie-licious pattern paper. The colors I used are YG21, YG23, YG25, V12, V15, V17, BG11, BG13, BG15, YR00, YR01, YR02, Y11, 13, and 15.
Let check out my next card...

Stamps: Buds and Vases, A Beautiful Life
Ink: Copics, Mementos, Tempting Turquoise,
Copic X-Press It
Paper: Cosmo Cricket, Tempting Turquoise, Misc Coral
Other: Labels 6, Pearls, Stickles, Long Rectangles

I used a couple of stamp sets for this card. The jar is from the new Buds and Vases stamp set and the sentiment and butterflies are from A Beautiful Life. I used some more of the Pixie-licious pattern papers for this card and colored the butterflies to match using YR000, YR00, YR01, YR02, Y00, Y11, Y13, Y15, and Y17. I added stickles to the wings and colored the bodies with a black Atyou Spica pen. The jar was shaded with BG10 and BG11, the lid was colored with C1, C2, C3, C4, and C5.

Are you ready to continue on your way through the hop? Your next stop is to the fabulous Sue Van DeVusse. Wait till you see what she has to share!!
