CSS Hello Spring Blog Hop - 4-23-2013

Welcome to another Blog Hop and we are welcoming Spring! Some areas are still stuck in Winter so Spring cards are really fun to see and work on. You should have arrived from Melissa Schultz, I always love visiting her blog.

This first card was made using the stamps from the new StampTV kit which included this sweet image called Sweet Friend. I made this for my granddaughter whose birthday in on Thursday. She will love it! The patterned paper is also GK called Petals and Wings which coordinated so nicely with the PL Bubblegum Pink and Lemon Yellow. 

I made this for my niece's bridal shower. The stamps were from Enjoy the Sunshine. I inked up a Cuttlebug folder to create the background. This was just a fun card that I made and it has a spring theme! 

Now you have to hop on over to check out what Vicki Dutcher has created for us to see.  

Thanks for the visit!

CSS - Sketch Challenge Blog Hop - 4-9-2013

Welcome to another Blog Hop - this time a sketch challenge! These are my favorite challenges and this sketch is awesome, thanks Brenda! You should have arrived from Vicki Dutcher, she always makes such amazing cards.

I have been wanting to ink up that rose from Stately Flowers 6 and I wanted it to be pink. So that is what I did. The pink card stock is GKD Passionate Pink. I love that color! I colored the rose with my Copics. The little bit of patterned paper is from Basic Grey and it is called Sweet Threads. I added some ribbon and a few pearls and a little "hi!" from A Year of flowers 2. And that is my card.

Now you have to hop on over to check out what Melissa Schultz has created for us to see.  

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, April 16.

Thanks for the visit!

Anniversary Tulips

I made this card for my son and his wife's 11th wedding anniversary. The flowers that they used for the wedding were tulips so I needed the tulips on there. Theirs weren't yellow but I really like the spring yellow and black look. 

The image is from GKD, it is one of my oldest and favorite flower sets called A  Beautiful Life. Such a pretty frame and fun to color with my Copic Markers. The sentiment is from Ticket Trio. All the card stock is Pure Luxury also from GDK.
