Gina K CSS Alumni Hop

Hi!
The Gina K Designs CSS Alumni girls have put together another fabulous hop for you this evening! I am your first stop tonight so sit back and enjoy all the eye candy that gals have created just for you!

If you get lost along the way head on over to Stamp TV, you can find a list of all the participants in the hop right here.

This time around the theme for our blog hop is Treasure Chest and in the treasure chest we found all of the Stamp TV kits so off we went to create projects using any of the Stamp TV kits.

I made two cards to share with you tonight.
My first card uses the Elegant Flowers Stamp set. I colored the iris's with copics, RV63, RV66, YR20/BG93, BG96. The pattern papers are Basic Grey's Sultry - yes, I still have some of that paper left!

My next card uses the Bold Flowers Stamp set. I stamped the largest flower on my focal image panel of white paper. I stamped the smaller two flowers on a piece of scrap paper and punched them out using the Marvy 6 petal flower punches before layering them on top of the larger stamped flower on my focal image. I used all scrap paper to make this card.

Now I am going to send on your way to the very talented Miesje Flach's Blog. I am sure she has something fabulous to share with us!!



Enjoy the rest of the hop!!!
