CSS Inspiration Blog Hop : With Love

It's time for another GinaK CenterStage Spotlight Team Blog Hop!

Each artist was asked to design their project by drawing inspiration from these photos of the AMAZING Christmas Cookie Bouquet the CSS Team sent to Gina's DT Coordinator Jessica Fick:

Everyone's projects will be added to the StampTV gallery and Idea Center over the next few days. You can search for them by using this tag: cssjf4


I have created 2 cards for this Blog Hop, they are Monochromatic and I used my favorite set "A Year of Flowers" designed by Melanie Muenchinger.
Both cards have the same image and sentiment, hope you don't find them boring.

For this card I stamped the image onto PL Ivory CS using White craft Ink, then I added some White ep, heated and sponged around the image using Red Ink. After I got the BG color I wanted I used a piece of cloth and cleaned the image so the pretty white could pop up. Stitches were added, ribbon and pearls.


With Love Red Card Recipe:
Card Stock: Pure Luxury Rocket Red, Pure Luxury Ivory.
Embellishments: Pure Luxury White Organdy Ribbon, Pearls (Kaiser Crafts), Clear glitter.
Ink: Real Red, White Craft.
Accessories: Sewing machine, White thread, White Embossing powder, Embossing gun, Corner punch, Mini glue dots.


For this card I stamped the image using Broken China Distress Ink, then I added the sentiment in Brown for a little contrast, cut and embossed the image. I sponged the borders a little bit. The BG was created with am embossing folder and a Cuttlebug.


With Love Blue Card Recipe:
Card Stock: Bashful Blue, Pure Luxury White.
Ink: Broken China Distress Ink (Ranger), Rich Cocoa (Memento)
Embellishments: White Satin Ribbon, Blue Satin Ribbon (Offray), Clear Rhinestones (Kaiser Crafts), Clear Glitter.
Accessories: Swiss Dots embossing folder, Cuttlebug, Circle Nestabilities, Mini glue dots, Dimensionals

Hope you like my cards and enjoy the Blog Hop!!
Have a great night.
