Stamp TV CSS Blog Hop


Hi everyone!  I am so happy to join in with my fellow CSSers today, AND, I get to be the first to welcome you! [I love that :)] Cheri has come up with such a fun color combo - white, yellow, gray, plus 1. [I chose black]  This is just a stunning combination~

For this first card, I used GKD Botanicals and Whimsical Spring.  I sponged on my yellows using a large dauber.

For this second card, I used GKD Perfect Plaids.  I stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black, and then used copics to color in the plaid for an ombre effect. [light to dark].  My sentiment is from Perfect Pennants.


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, August 13, over at Stamp TV's forum.

You are hopping on to TERA's blog.  Have a great time seeing all the beautiful eye candy!


Thanks for stopping by~
