CSS Inspiration Blog Hop

It's time for another GinaK CenterStage Spotlight Team Blog Hop!

Each artist was asked to design their project by drawing inspiration from these photos of the AMAZING Christmas Cookie Bouquet the CSS Team sent to Gina's DT Coordinator Jessica Fick:


Click on these links to see what the participating Designers have prepared for us tonight:



The sweet little houses image from Gina K's Let It Snow set was stamped on Gina K's Pure Luxury White and colored with copics. Glitter was added to the snowy roofs , smoke, and the snowflakes from the same set were stamped in the sky area with Cool Caribbean. White Mulberry paper was torn in assorted sized strips and glued to the bottom half to cover the snow area at the bottom. The paper was then run through the top note die, trimmed around the perforated edge, and layered it on a piece of Pure Luxury Chocolate Kiss that was cut out with the top note die, also. The sentiment was stamped, cutout with Nestabilities, and attached with foam tape.
The snowman from the same set was also colored with copics, cut out, popped up with foam tape and pearls were added to the button areas. The background scalloped layer was run through the Dotted Swiss Cuttlebug folder and the ribbon finished it off.

This was a fun and quick card to make....the Pure Luxury Passionate Pink cardstock was stamped with the snowflakes from Rupa Shevde's The Magic of Christmas set. The sentiment was from Gina K's Let it Snow set. The mitten paper is from Cosmo Cricket's Jolly by Golly and the ribbon, button, twine, and snowflake finish it off.

Thanks sooo much for stopping by tonight...have fun on the hop!!!

What a glorious reminder of winter beauty Creator gives us this season of rest for earth and its bounty. Bringing theme colors from that generous cookie bouquet was done so very handily! Such detail and winter calm all in one greeting! Thank you for sharing your take on this season's card. mt23stamper
