Center Stage Spotlight Challenge Blog Hop

It's time for another CenterStage Spotlight Challenge Blog hop!


Hostess: Jessica Fick {Design Team Coordinator}
Theme:
Stamp and color the image on Patterned Paper
{ any occasion card acceptable, it doesn't have to be Christmas themed} { image may be cut out and layered, but must be stamped and colored on patterned paper}
Requirement: any GinaK Designs stamp set & Glitter
Bonus Challenge: decorate the inside of your card to coordinate


It is such a delight to work with these ladies from the Center Stage Spotlight Design Team Alumni and Jessica does a remarkable job organizing these hops! I used a stamp from the Stamp TV Kit Holiday Cheer Kit to add another card to my Christmas card stash. I used the new Kraft cardstock and sadly cut my last sheet (but no worries, I am ordering more ASAP!) I stamped the image on a piece of snowflake Basic Grey Wassail patterned paper and colored it with Copics. In order to add glitter to my card, I added some Christmas Red Stickles to my berries. The edges were lightly sponged with White Craft ink. I am going to have to skip the bonus challenge of doing the inside as I ran out of time... I can't wait to see what everyone else has created for this challenge...
Card Deets:
Stamp: Holiday Cheer Stamp TV Kit
Cardstock: Kraft, White, and Basic Grey Wassail
Ink: Memento Black, White Kraft
Accessories: Copics, Nesties, Christmas Red Stickles, White Embossing Powder
