CSS Color Blog Hop

It is time for another Stamp TV CSS Blog Hop. This time around it is a color challenge. The amazing thing is that you  have two choices for this one (thanks Gina!). The first one I have had done for a few days but the second one I did very quickly when I got home from work tonight. It shows you that not every card has to be elaborate.


Here are the 2 color choices:

And here are the cards I made:

You should have arrived from Melissa Schultz blog and I am sure that all the stops on this hop were incredible! There is such talent at StampTV.  If you want to start at the beginning  or get lost along the way, just head on over to the home page of StampTV or directly over to the start of the blog hop here.

The first card was made using Lovely Shelf stamps set for the flowers and vase and the sentiment was from Love Notes, both sold by GinaK. The DP was from Cosmo Cricket called Circa 1934. I colored the flowers with my wonderful Capics and used Labels Four for the image and the frame around the image. I also used a bit of lace with a button.

The second card was super simple which is NOT my preferred style. I used my brand new Gina K stamp set called Gleefully Yours. I colored the stamp with markers and used my Score-Buddy to score a couple of lines on the side. I do like the end result which surprised me!   


Now hop on over to visit Peggy Wainman, rumor has it that she has 2 cards to share with you! Thanks for hopping along with us and for the kind comments you leave. It is good to be back!

Be sure to join the Gina's Color Challenge. We would love to see your creations and you could win a prize!
