CSS DT Inspiration Blog Hop

Welcome to another StampTV CSS DT Alumni blog hop!  If you've arrived from the extremely talented Carolina's blog then you're in the right place.  If not, then you'll want to go HERE and start this hop at the beginning and see all the fabulous projects in this hop.  


It's another inspiration hop and just look at this GREAT image we were given to work with!  




I saw so much inspiration with this image that I could have gone wild with projects.  I settled on two.


My first card is a Telescoping Card I found from Technique Junkies.  I thought it worked well for this challenge - especially when I couldn't make up my mind which section if the image to play with.   Here is the card closed.



And here it is open.


For this card I used Gina K Pure Luxury Card Stock in colors Red Hot. White, Chocolate Kiss, Wild Dandelion and Green Grass.  The Gina K Stamp Sets I used were from "Enjoy the Sunshine" StampTV Kit and "Eclectic Summer Sayings".  Also used were Nestabilities cicle dies, Alterations Die and Copic Markers.


Here's another card I made using this inspiration image.  This one is for my awesome husband for his birthday.  (we're both Motown fans from the 60's where this sentiment came from)  



For this card I also used Gina K Pure Luxury CS Red Hot, White and Chocolate Kiss.  The StampTV stamp set I used for this card came from "Sweetest Blessings".  Again I used Nestabilities circle dies, Cuttlebug and Sizzix EF and Copic Markers.  The bg came from Webster's Petite Papers "Spring Market, Yacht Club & Country Estate" 6x6 paper pack.   The sketch came from JUGS#87 challenge last week.

Play along with us.....create a card or project using this inspiration image and then post it to the StampTV Forum on the blog hop thread - we'd love to see what you create!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Now hop on over to Deb Felt's blog because I know as talented as she is, you're going to love what she's created.
