CSS Alumni Color Challenge Blog Hop

Welcome to a 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 at the beginning, please go to StampTV and hop from there.

The challenge for this hop is a Color Challenge ~ Kraft or Tan Leather, Green (Creme de Menthe, Grass Green, Fresh Asparagus, or Green Apple) and White.

Here's what I came up with. I created 2 cards with these colors.

Hugs and Prayers: For this card I used Nina's new set Hugs and Prayers, the BG paper is from Bright and Grungy Dots Digital paper I added 4 eyelets from the Metallic Mix Collection and added some Jute twine

Card recipe:
Card stock: Kraft, White Fresh Asparagus (Gina K. Designs)
Stamps: Hugs and Prayers (Gina K. Designs).
Paper: Bright and Grungy Digital (GKD)
Ink: Certainly Celery (SU), Peeled Paint Distress (Ranger), Tea Dye Distress (Ranger).
Embellishments: Metallic Eyelets (GKD), Green Glitter (Studio G), Jute twine (GKD).
Accessories: Sewing machine, White thread, Distresser (CTMH), Circle Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Sponge daubers, Foam tape.


I love hanging around you: For this card I used Gina's new set Seeds of Kindness.The images was stamped and colored twice, then I cut out few of the leaves and added to the main image with glue dots and curled the ends of the leaves for a better and real look. The BG was created with Distress Stripes embossing folder, I added some Vintage Linen Distress Ink to the folder and embossed it that way, then I inked all the edges with Walnut Stain Distress. The sentiment was stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa and die cut using Fancy Tags Nestabilities

I am submitting this card to:  The Shabby Tea Room.
