CSS Sketch Blog Hop - 7-9-2013

I love sketch challenges and this one is really pretty. You should have arrived from Lori McAree where I am sure you saw a wonderful project with this sketch!

I made this card for my niece's wedding coming up in a couple of weeks. For this "Irish" family I try to incorporate some green into the cards. The image is from Always and Forever with the sentiment from Mr. and Mrs. Diva. This card had several trial and errors. with this one being the winner! I used GKD Ivory and a panel of Crème de Mente. On the Ivory panel I used a Cuttlebug folder after heat embossing some glitter on it. The couple was embossed in silver. I sponged lightly around the couple and a silver heart is hanging from the card.

Now you have to hop on over to check out what Tera Fujan 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, July 16.

Thanks for the visit!

4th of July Blog Hop

Welcome to this special July 4 Gina K. Designs Hop!!!!  Some of the Design Team and the Center Stage Spotlight Team have some fun cards and projects to share with a patriotic theme and flair!!!  And Gina has a special sale incentive too!!! But first here is my card.

The image is from one of GKD older stamp sets called Hello Sunshine. I used the wonderful  GKD Pure Luxury white and cherry red. The small panel in the middle was made using the shaving cream technique. The umbrella was stamped twice and popped up.

Be sure to check out this wonderful special that Gina has for us. I know I will be doing some shopping!
