Color Spotlight StampTV CSSDT Blog Hop

Happy New Year!!! 
Welcome to the first StampTV Center Stage Spotlight Design Team Alumni blog hop of 2011!  
If you've come here from the extremely talented Carolina Buchting's blog, then you are in the right place.  If you didn't, I know you're going to want to begin HERE so you can see each gorgeous creation.   


This is Color Spotlight #8 hop and Gina K, over at StampTV, has created a fantastic video you are definitely going to want to see.  She'll be giving you all the details on how YOU can enter for a chance to win a FREE StampTV stamp set.  


That being said, when we (the CSSDT) were told about the color spotlight, these were the colors assigned. 

 

I made 2 cards with this color palette.  Here's my first card.


This is a card on a card.  The greeting (Happy Birthday) is between the scalloped card with note area on the inside of the main part of the card.  


Card details:
Layered with Basic Grey designer paper "June Bug" 
Stamps:  GKD "Nana's Needlework" and "Nana's Needlework Sentiments" by Nina Brackett.  
Inks:  Vivid "Vintage Green" and "Brick".  
Die:  Spellbinders Nestabilities Scalloped Circles Large


Here is my second card:  (Another birthday card)


Card details:
The panel design paper is again from the Basic Grey "June Bug" line layered on the a piece of "Red Hot" and then marked with faux stitches using a Ranger Inkssentials White Opaque pen.  
Stamp Set:  GKD "Hope Grows" by Theresa Momber layered on Spellbinders Nestabilities Small Scalloped Octagon die and for the sentiment "Showtime Stamp Kit Springtime Mix".  I pierced all around the edge of the octagon.
Inks:  Vivid "Vintage Green",(leaves) Momento "Rich Cocoa" (bird)
CuttleBug Embossing Folder "Moroccan Tiles" on the background CS.
Copic markers were used to color the bird:  R0000, R46, G21, YG06, Y32, E000


When Gina posted her video she threw in a change-up and spotlighted this color palette instead of the one above:
The GOOD NEWS is no matter which color palette you choose to play with you can enter the video color spotlight challenge and a chance to WIN a FREE StampTV stamp set.




I made this card using this color palette:


Card details:
Stamps sets:  "Square Pegs" by Melanie Muenchinger and the sentiment is "Love Notes", by Gina K.
CuttleBug Embossing Folder (sorry, I don't recall the title)


All products I used on my cards can be purchased at StampTV.  Finish hopping then go shopping!  Have some fun with your craft this year!   Now hop on over to the very talented and lovely Deb Felts blog and see her gorgeous creations.


Thanks for stopping by,

Cheri
