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

Jessica at Stamp TV arranged for past members of the Center Stage Spotlight Team to participate in a special blog hop.  Here was the challenge for this hop:

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

Here is my first card:                                                                                      the inside:

Stamps:  Melanie Muenchinger's Hip to Be Square and Rupa Shevde's Winter Friends
Paper:  Gina K Designs In the Navy and Pure Luxury White cardstock, Stampin Up DP
Other:  Gina K Designs Ribbon, Sakura Glitter Pen, snowflakes cut with Cuttlebug and Copic Markers

This one I made for my daughter whose husband is a worship leader at his church:

                                                                                                      the inside:

Stamps:  Nina Brackett's Vintage Borders, Asela Hopkins' First Christmas
Paper:  GKD Rocket Red, All Spruced Up, White, Misc. DP
Other:  Gold Glitter Embossing powder

OK, OK, I know we were only to do one card, but I got a little carried away with the idea of stamping on patterned paper so I promise this is the last one.  I looked at all my GKD stamps and found all the tiny stamps!  (used 6 different stamp sets)  The gold glitter embossing powder made it difficult to photograph.  It really looks better in person!  Hope you enjoy!!

Stamps: GKD Holiday Cheer (stocking, ornament, snowflake), Rupa Shevde's Winter Friends( bird, holly) Melanie Muenchinger's Hip to be Square (star), Nina Brackett's Lord of the Season (tree trunk, base) Nina Brackett's Elegant Post (kissing birds), Nina Brackett's Vintage Borders(inside sentiment)
Paper:  GKD All Spruced Up, Good as Gold and White cardstock, misc. DP
Other:  Gold Glitter embossing powder

Now go check out some REALLY neat cards that will give you great inspiration!!

Joy these are all fantastic. I especially love the NOEL on the music - and the inside of that one, too. I also think your tiny stamp tree is adorable and VERY clever!

Melissa Cash said...

You go girl! I love them all! I thought I was stretching a bit using 4 sets on one card. I pass the tiara to you my friend, 6 sets on one card must be a record!
