StampTV CSS DT Inspiration Blog Hop

Welcome!  It's time for another StampTV Center Stage Spotlight Design Team blog hop and I'm so happy you're hopping along with us for this INSPIRATION hop.  
If you've come here from the fabulous Carolina's blog you're in the right place.  If not, we invite you to go back at the beginning of the hop - you wouldn't want to miss one gorgeous project the team has created.


Our inspiration came from The Better Bit of Butter Cookie site and when I first saw this photo I was struck  by how gorgeously yummy these cookies looked!  How bright and beautiful!  Then my head began to spin with all the decisions and choices for creativity from this inspiration.  Yikes!!!!  


I finally settled and took my inspiration from Premier 3 - I would have done several if I had more time....this is such a great inspiration piece.  




Details:    Gina K Pure Luxury CS White and Lemon Drop.  The embossed layer is done using a Sizzix EF
Stamp Set - "Smile" By GKD
Ink  -  Memento "Bahama Blue" and "Tuxedo Black".  Distress Ink "Mustard Seed"
MS Punch for trim


We LOVE it when you join us and invite you to create a project from this inspiration.  Just post it to the Forum thread so we can we can enjoy your creations too.  


While you're hopping, be sure to leave a comment on each blog because on Tuesday morning (April 12th), we will randomly choose one of the comments from all the blogs and that lucky person will get a Gina K Designs stamp set of their choice valued up to $24.95!
Thank you for stopping by.  Now hop on over to the talented Deb's blog - I know she's got something gorgeous for you to see.


Have a great weekend!
