CSS Inspiration Blog Hop


Welcome to the CSS Inspiration blog hop.  If you came here from Miesje's blog, you are in the right place.  If not, then start over at StampTV so you don't miss some really great creations.
Carolina gave us this picture to use for inspiration:

Here is my card:

My inspiration for this card was the colors and candy, it's probably pretty obvious, lol.  I used the Sweetest Blessings set from GKD.  Cardstock is also from GKD, and paper is Jolly by Golly from Cosmo Cricket.  I used my white pen to add dots, and pink stickles to make my cupcake glittery.

Now hop on over toTera 's blog to see what she has to inspire you with.

STV Color Challenge

Hello!  I hope you had a great Thanksgiving!  I had a wonderful time with family.

My card today is for the color challenge at StampTv today:

Here is my card:

I stamped and embossed the daisy image in clear EP, then sponged over with SU old olive and Vivid aqua inks for the emboss resist effect.  Card stock, stamps, and ribbon all from GKD.

Stop back later tonight for some CSS fun.

Frosty Penguin

Hello, and happy day before Thanksgiving!

My card today is for the sketch challenge at StampTV.

I used the penguin and sentiment from GKD's Sandy Claws set.  I kept him frosty with the snowflake punch, snow flake brad, and self adhesive rhinestones, brrr.
short post today due to holiday preparations.

Have a great Thanksgiving!

Sandy Claws


Today I have a card for this week's color challenge at StampTV.

I don't have any Lipstick Red, so I used Red Hot instead.

I used the set Sandy Claws is Coming to Town from Gina K Designs.  All card stock is also GKD.  You can't see it in the picture, but I added stickles to the fur on this cute little crab's Santa outfit.

Thanks for visiting today!

Merry and Bright

Tonight I have a card I made using the new spotlight sketch over at StampTV.  Gina will now be showing videos for sketch and color challenges each week in addition to her regular Wednesday STV kit videos.
Here is the sketch

and here is my take on it:

The gingerbread house is from Holiday Cheer and the sentiment is from Holiday Hospitality, both from GKD.  Do you like my sentiment tags?  They are die cut using an oval, and 2 of the Fancy Tags nesties.  I just trimmed the bottom layer ( which was the large rectangle with flourish edges) to fit better around the middle layer.  I really like the look, and will probably use it a lot more.

Thanks for visiting!

Stamps:  Holiday Cheer, Holiday Hospitality GKD
Ink: Moment Black, SU markers, Vivid Aquq
Paper:  Cardstock from GKD and SU, paper Cosmo Cricket
Other:  buttons GKD, nesties

Wine and Gold


Wow!  3 days in a row for me to post, I've been on a card making spree this week, lol!
Today I have a card for the color challenge at StampTv to use wine, gold, and ivory.

I used the set Tea Time from GKD for the image and sentiment.  The background was made with an old SU stamp that I've had for quite a few years now.  Glad I held on to it, hehe.  I stamped the swirls in burgundy then colored the hearts in with a ziggy gold pen.  The teapot and sentiment are both heat embossed in gold.

Thanks for visiting!

Ink:  Versamark, SU burgundy
Paper:  GKD Wine and Ivory

Today I have a card for the sketch challenge over at Stamp TV.  It was a simple sketch, but I found myself wanting to keep adding stuff to it, lol.

The pumpkins are from the Signs of Autumn set at GKD.  I added the ribbon and button, then decided the border needed the pearls, then felt the scalloped rectangle edge needed some piercing.  One thin I didn't add is a sentiment, because I'm not sure what I want to use the card for yet.

Thanks for visiting!
