STAMP TV CSS ALUMNI JULY BLOG HOP

Welcome to the July StampTV CSS alumi blog hop -  we're so happy that you've joined us. 


This month we're creating cards based on a sketch by our own Melissa Cash and we'd love it if you would play along with us. 
All you have to do is create your card and link it up at the blog hop on the StampTV forum. It's also the starting place for our hop, so start here and catch every awesome inspiration from our team. 

If you came here from the incredibly talented and creative Brenda's blog, then you're in the right place.  If not, link back to the beginning.  You don't want to miss one fantastic inspiration by this super talented group.  Also,  Make sure to leave a comment as you hop along because on Tuesday morning (July 17), 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!  Woohoo!!!! Who wouldn't want that?

Here's Melissa's fantastic sketch 


and here's my card using Melissa's sketch


My card was made using Gina K Pure Luxury White and Dandelion CS.  The bg dp, bglayer and stamps are from the new StampTV Kit "Hello Sunshine".   Copic Markers were used to color the flip flops and Stickles were used to add bling.  The sentiment banner was created using the sunburst stamp included in the stamp kit with Memento "Dandelion" ink.  The bg dies are from Spellbinder Nestabilities - "Square Swatches" and "Classic Squares Large". 


Thank you for stopping by - now please visit the incredibly talented Geri for even more inspiration. 


This card is also being entered in  Oozak Blog Challenge Bright Colors.
