STAMPTV CSS COLOR COMBO CHALLENGE BLOG HOP

Hi blog friends!!! 

We're here with another StampTV CSS group blog hop and challenge. 
This time, we're having a color combo challenge brought to us by Miesje.  Her challenge is to create a non-Christmas card using the colors red and green and one other neutral color (black, white, tan, gray).

If you've come here from the super talented Geri Utterback's blog you're in the right place, if not, we invite you to go to the BEGINNING and see all the creative inspiration. 

Make sure to leave a comment as you go along because we will choose a random comment and that stamper will win a grab bag of Gina K. Designs products! Look for the announcement on Tuesday, May 28.

I made two cards for Miesje's challenge using Melanie Muenchinger's fabulous new stamp set, "Year of Flowers 2".  I absolutely love this set and am having so much fun creating with it.  Melanie has a great tutorial and video on her blog and on YouTube showing some great ideas for stamping and coloring these images.


 
 


Now, hop on over to the very talented Betty Neville's blog and see her fabulous work. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Your cards are beautiful, Cheri. I like them both a lot, but the first one is really a stunner. I'm going to have to watch Melanie's videos and play with that set some more.

Ronda Ellis said...

I am not an avid fan of flowers, although I have tons of flower stamps....I never seem to know just how to color them without coloring the whole flower, but what a nice technique on both of these and have given me some new ideas and makes me want to use flowers, and that is saying a bunch~no pun intended :)

Lovely coloring on your tulip card! I like the kraft base as your third color. Very attractive--my pick of the two, even though they were both lovely.
