STAMP TV CENTER STAGE SPOTLIGHT TEAM INSPIRATION 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:



It has been so cold here in East Texas -- one day it was 10 degrees!  Good Grief I've lived here almost 30 years and it has NEVER been that cold, so with inspiration for Jessica's cookie bouquet, I made this box to take to the office for a little encouragement for the ladies who work for us. This will sit beside our coffee and hot water in our break room.  As cold as it is suppose to be, I'll be refilling this often!

Gina K has a tutorial on how to make lovely decorator boxes from kleenex boxes here.  I made this one just a little shorter. FUN, FUN project thanks to Gina's instructions.

Stamp:  Rupa Shevede's Warm and Wonderful  
Paper:  GKD Pure Luxury White, and misc. dp
Other:  Glitter Pen,  Copic markers,  ribbon, cuttlebug 


My next project was a card.  I took my inspiration from the colors -- Hey, can you tell I like pink and blue?  LOL

Stamps:   Rupa Shevde's Warm Winter Wishes
Paper:  Melisssa Francis
Other:  Vintage Ribbon from my favorite vendor at Brimfield's (mass.),button, cuttlebug, glitter on the little hearts on the inside

Now finish the hop with inspiration from these -- all are outstanding designers!!!
