STAMPTV CSS DT APRIL SKETCH CHALLENGE

Welcome to another StampTV CSS DT blog hop.  Once again we're showcasing a fabulous sketch from our own Melissa Cash. 

If you've come here from the super talented Geri's blog, then you're in the right place.  If not, you may want to go back to the beginning of the hop, just so you don't miss one fantastic inspirational stop. 

As you hop, don't forget to leave a message on each blog because you might just win a huge grab bag of fabulous Gina K. Designs stamps!  On Tuesday morning (April 24), we will randomly choose one of the comments from all the blogs and that person will receive a huge grab bag of fabulous Gina K. Designs Stamps!

Here's Melissa's sketch


I made two different cards using this sketch and used the same StampTV Kit Stamp "Petals and Wings".



For those of you who follow my blog and my cards know that I'm a big technique fan and in this card I'm using a technique I found in the April/May issue of Technique Junkies Newsletter called "Copic Colored Embossing".  It looks like delicate embroidery to me and so I paired it with the MS eyelet punch after embossing the panel wth a CB swiss dots EF.  I used GKD Pure Luxury "In the Navy"  for the base layer and the Copic embossing layer "Little Boy Blue" PL CS was used for the base layer. 


This card was made using the great papers and ribbons included with the "Petals and Wings" StampTV Kit.   I received this set yesterday and couldn't wait to ink it up. 

Thanks for stopping by and now hop over to Geri's ubar talented daughter, Brenda's blog and see her fabulous creation using Melissa's sketch.

Beautiful cards Cheri! I love the look of that technique on the first card! The colors are so pretty on the second! Great coloring too!

Melissa Cash said...

Beautiful cards Cheri! I agree with Sharri and I love the technique you used for the first card, I will have to give it a try.

Carolina said...

What a fun way to demo the versatility of this sketch. The split panel on your first card is genius as is the copic colored embossing - must give this a try! The second card is ever so sweet!

Miesje said...

Love those stamps but really like what you did with the first one - never tried that and really like the outcome! Great cards!

Couple of cute cards! Love the gingham - nice and bright :)

Lynn B. said...

I love the way you set the sentiment on top of the image without using a contrasting color to set them apart on the first card. I would never have thought of that but it looks spectacular. I'll definitely try it.

Sheila said...
