STAMPTV CSS DT INSPIRATION BLOG HOP

Hey there blog friends!!!

The StampTV CSS Design Team is having an Inspiration blog hop and we're hoping you'll play along with us. 

If you came here from the fabulously talented Brenda (who gave us this inspiration), then you're in the right place.  If not, you'll want to go back to the hop beginning so you don't miss one post because if you complete the hop and leave a comment on each post, you'll be entered in the drawing on Tuesday morning (May 15), when 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!

Brenda's fantastic inspiration


Here is my card


I love texture and what I got from the inspiration photo is the texture.  My eye immediately went to the brick wall, the flowers and the wicker basket.  I tried to pull them all into my project.  I thought the quilt added such a quaint comfort to this image so I placed my basket on it.

The stamps I used were Melanie Muenchinger's "Spring Basket".  The beautiful dp, which created the "quilt" and basket liner, in my project are from the new StampTV Kit "Petals and Wings".  The brick wall was made with a Sizzix ef that I first inked with Vivid "Tea Rose" ink pad before running it through the embossing machine.  I then sponged the panel with DI "forest moss" and "pumice stone" to age it.  The flowers and basket were colored with Copic markers.  All card stock is Gina K Pure Luxury white.  The corner scrolls were cut with a die and sponged with DI "forest moss".   The basket, liner and flowers were all popped with dimensionals. 

Thank you for stopping by.  Your next stop is over to the blog of the super talented Geri (Brenda's mom) - I know she's going to wow you with her project. Before you go, don't forget to leave a comment - I'd LOVE IT if someone from my comments won the goodie bag!!!  Good luck!

OOOOOOOOOOOOOO I like your card also. When I first saw the basket I wondered whose stamp set it was from. The way you colored it I did not recognize Mel's basket - neat idea, you gave it an aged look. That quilt paper is a wonderful addition. And then your brick wall...WOW!! Now I know there are at least 2 brick wall EF's out there - so now I neeeeeeeed to look for one of them...Thanks for sharing your talent.
