CSS Alumni Blog Hop

Welcome to another fun blog hop being hosted by members of StampTV Center Stage Alumni. A group of us have decided to get together a couple of times a month and host a themed hop in order to share our love for Gina K. Stamps.

If you've arrived from Cheri's blog: Stamp'n Boomer then you're at the right place! To start the fun blog hop, please go to StampTV and hop from there.

The challenge for this hop is an Inspiration one,coming from one of the yummy pictures from 1-800- Flowers.


And these are the cards I created:

Baby Congratulations Card: For this card I got inspired by the colors and the circles. I thought a baby card with this colors could be a lot of fun to make, so this is the result.

Directions:
  • Make card from card stock.
  • Cut a slightly smaller piece, dry emboss, ink edges and add stitches.
  • Stamp sentiment, die cut with label, sponge. Adhere to card.
  • Cut or punch small circles and adhere to a thin (1/8 inch) strip of card stock. Adhere to card. Add pearls.
  • Add paper flowers , ribbon as a leaf and a brad.

Card Recipe:

Birthday Wishes Card: For this card I got inspired by the colors, circles and theme!!

Directions:
  • Make card from card stock.
  • Mat together pieces of card stock. Punch corners on yellow piece, dry emboss, ink edges and add stitches.
  • Stamp image twice, color them. Die cut, emboss and sponge. Cut flowers from second image and adhere. Add to card.
  • Stamp sentiment, die cut, emboss and sponge.
  • Add bow.

Hope you like my cards!
