Stamp TV CSS Hop - Color Challenge



Hi everyone!  Welcome to the 2nd Stamp TV CSS Blog Hop.  Tonight's is a color challenge - Red, White and Blue.

Rather then make a July 4th card - I have never sent one of those - ever, I went with a general type of card.

Using GKD's Elegant Florals, I made this card:

  My paper is Little Blue Boy that unfortunately, doesn't photograph well. You just have to trust me - it's blue. ;)

I also made a second card.  This one I used GKD Lots of Letters, with a sentiment from All Occasions Tags

Once again, I was inspired by a customers shirt!  [I really need to take photos of my inspiration :)]

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, June 25 over at Stamp TV Forum.

Meanwhile, you are going to be hopping over to Lori's Blog.  If you want to see who is participating in tonight's hop, click HERE.

Enjoy~



Thanks for stopping by~

Love both your cardsbut the first one best....and I usually send one or 2 cards for the 4th because I always seem to have at least one blog challenge that I participate in that has patriotic or 4th themes so I have to send it sometime (although I will often send it on flag day or Memorial Day for our Military friends as they seem to appreciate that...)

I like the color shades of the first card and boldness of the second.

Great cards. Love the gingham on the first one. Lots of Letters just arrived in my mailbox last week, so I really appreciate the inspiration your second card provided.

I so love your cards. They are so amazingly beautiful. I do send 4th cards to my shutins and I don't have them done yet. Yikes! I need to get with it, but there is so much going on of late. But these look like some inspiration for something I might try. Thanks!

What wonderful red, white and blue cards. They could be for the 4th, or for something else; like a birthday around the 4th.

Barbara said...

Wonderful cards, love the way you did patriotic colors, but they could be send for any occasion.

Great cards Vicki! I had the same thought about not making cards for the 4th of July, but you did a bang up job with the colors! Love it that your inspiration came from people's shirts!

Vicki, I LOVE both of your cards. The floral one is stunning and I love that stamp set with the RWB. Great designs on both cards - you're the queen of great designs.

Two great cards! Who said red, white and blue is for the 4th of July only! :)

Your flower card is beautiful. The other is pretty fun, too. I can totally understand the never having sent a 4th of July card.

Pretty cards! I love both of them. Patriotic colors but could be used for other times too.

Great cards. My fave is the first one because of the gingham and the buttons.

Love your use of colors Vicki. I especially like the first card. Thanks for all the inpsiration.

kramomma said...

I like both of your cards...sometimes I'm inspired by a card but seldom by clothing!

Elise said...

I wonder WHY I'm craving a MISSLE pop so badly right now, yet I probably haven't had one in three or more DECADES! LOL - My GOODNESS, these cards are yummy! Stamppy, stampy BRILLIANCE!

Betty Neville said...

Great cards, Vicki! Love your layouts! Funny about the shirt inspiration - I was in church one week and staring at the lady's shirt in front of me and thinking that the colors would look great on a card! : )

Gayle said...

Love your cards, Vicki and 4th of July is a non-card holiday for me too.

Marsha said...

Both are great. Really like the first card with the shadow stamping.
