CSS - Color Blog Hop - 5-21-2013

Welcome to another CSS Blog Hop! I look forward to these blog hops and this time it is a color challenge. The challenge is to use red and green in a non -Christmas card. I don't know about you but when January rolls around I do not want to see red and green for a while. I thought if would be good to see the variety that can be made with this color combo. You should have arrived from Vicki Dutcher.

I love the way this card turned out, and it was really the last card I made after watching Melanie's tutorial and used her stamp set called A Year of Flowers 2. The paper was GKD white and Jelly Bean Green. This was a really fun technique - thanks Melanie!

I made this card for my dear daughter-in-law. I used 3 different stamp sets; Blossom which was one of the stamps from the last Stamp TV kit, Stamp it Big! 2, and Vogue Vases 2. The heart was made using the patterned paper called Winter Whimsy. The green of the ribbon and the flowers match better in person then on the photo. The blossoms were stamped on one of Gina's  first packs of patterned paper that came in a Stamp TV kit. I played around with the layout for a while on this one. 

This last card was made using Sweet Strawberries and the technique I used was paper piecing. That's right I did not color I stamped the leaves and the strawberries on the GKD Pure Luxury Cherry Red and Grass Green. I know I tossed in a little bit of a very  light blue - forgive me! 

Now be sure to hop on over to check out what Lori McAree has created for us to see.  If you want to start over you can go to StampTV for links to all the hoppers. And don't forget 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. Good Luck!

Thanks for the visit!
