StampTV CSS Alumni Color Challenge Blog Hop

WELCOME!  To the first of StampTV Center Stage Spotlight DT March Blog Hops!  We're so happy you're taking these hops with us and we love reading your comments.  If you've come from the exceptionally talented Carolina's blog, then you're in the right place.  If not, then we invite you to take this hope from THE BEGINNING so that you can see all of the fabulous inspiration that this talented group has to offer.  

This is a COLOR CHALLENGE BLOG HOP and our projects are showcasing this week's Color Challenge at StampTV.  


I love this color combination and couldn't wait to create with it.  That said, I found myself in a quagmire of ideas formulating in my head and when it was time to put those ideas to paper, I felt like a cat trying to throw a fur ball LOL,  (sorry for the graphic).  

I made two cards although I had other designs flowing in my head....yet, I needed a quick birthday card and this is the what ended up on my craft table.


After making this card, I realized I had used a different green card stock other than the one that Gina had in her challenge.  The green CS I used is "Green Apple" not "Fresh Asparagus" as Gina has in her challenge...I think it still worked okay! 

Details:  Stamp Set is "Labeled with Love" and it's framed with Nestabilities Labels 14 that has been embossed with EF.  DP is Basic Grey "Cappella".  Roses are Prima.

I used "Fresh Asparagus" CS on my next card


Details:  I used PL CS  "Fresh Asparagus" for the base of this card and used "Soft Sand" for the frame layer then embossed the leaf branch on "White".  I used this Tonic Punch to make the corners.  The focal image is from the stamp set "You Are Not Alone" and the sentiment is from  the stamp set "Framed Greetings".  The ends of the jute ribbon were left unconnected and I tied a bow on the "tail" of the long end with twine.  All products can be purchased from StampTV

I LOVE taking these hops with all of you.  Thanks so very much for stopping by and don't forget to add a card to the color challenge STVCSP15 (PLEASE USE CAPITAL LETTERS FOR THE CHALLENGE TAG) and you'll be enter to win a FREE Gina K, StampTC stampset of your choice valued up to $24.95.  

Now hop on over to the fabulous Deb Felts blog.  She's got something fantastic to show you.  

Have a GREAT weekend!
