Welcome to another Stamp TV CSS Alumni blog hop. If you came from Miesje's blog you are right on track (wasn't her project fabulous?!). If not, please go to Stamp TV and start at the beginning. I don't want you to miss any of these fabulous projects the gals are sharing tonight!
Carolina gave us a color challenged for this hop. The colors we were to use are white or ivory, light blue, yellow and brown. I have been trying to start on my Christmas cards so I was bound and determined to make a Christmas card using these colors. I think I succeeded! What do you think?
I am submitting this card for a couple of challenges, Paper Pretties which was to use embossing and No Time to Stamp which was to use non-traditional Christmas colors.
Paper: Gina K
Ink: Memento, SU, Versamark
Other: Spellbinders Labels 16, Lace,
Prima, Cuttlebug Allegro EF, Clear EP, Branch Punch
I used all Gina K Pure Luxury Papers, Ivory, Tan Leather, Sweet Corn and Little Boy Blue. The stamps are Lovely Labels 2, Vintage Borders and the sentiment is from First Christmas.
I stamped both the label and border with versamark then with Desert Sand before stamping them on the paper. I heat embossed them with clear embossing powder. I did the same for the sentiment using the blue ink. I like doing this when I use softer ink colors because it make the colors more vibrant.
Originally I did not have the flower on the card but after looking at it for a bit I decided it needed a bit more yellow so I add the prima flower with a bit of lace and branches behind it.
Your next stop on the hop is Tera's blog. You're gonna love what she has to share with us tonight!
After you finish the hop, please join us back at Stamp TV.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the hop!!
