CSS - Color Blog Hop - 3/16/2012


It is another StampTV blog hop. This time around it is a color challenge - don't you love these colors? It just had to be a card that announces the early Spring many of us are experiencing.


You should have arrived from Melissa Shultz blog and since she is the one that brought us this color challenge I am sure it was a great stop! 

Oh I had fun with this one! I loved all of the coloring and yes, even the cutting! I stamped the butterflies from A Year of Borders, the extra butterflies from A Beautiful Life, the tulips from A Year of Flowers and the sentiment was from Happy Spring! You should have seen the mess on my craft table with all of these various stamp sets! I colored using my Copics and added a few gems on the butterflies. The body of the card was made with Pure Luxury Turquoise Sea and I used some Soft Sand and Lemon Drop to layer. The ribbon I had and that wonderful patterned paper came in one of my StampTV kits but I don't remember which one it was. I must admit to hoarding those wonderful papers!

Now hop on over to visit Sharri Seffens, for some more fabulous eye candy. If you want to start at the beginning or get lost along the way, just jump directly to the links for all of the wonderful creations on StampTV.
Make sure to leave a comment as you hop along because on Tuesday morning (March 20), 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!

Thanks for stopping and I hope you too can enjoy this early Spring!
