Stamp TV Color Inspiration Blog Hop

Carolina at Stamp TV has arranged a Color Inspiration Blog Hop and here are the colors courtesy of Melissa S:


If you have landed here after viewing Geri Utterback's blog, you are at the right spot. Wasn't her card fabulous! You can start at Stamp TV so that you will not miss one single inspirational project!

Here is my card:
Stamp:  Stenciled Spring
Paper:  GKD Lemon Drop, Green Apple, Turquoise Sea
Other:  SU punch, ribbon, Cuttlebug folder - Before I placed my cardstock into the folder, I sprayed the cardstock with a little bit of alcohol.  It seems to make the embossing pop!

Do you see that little piece of dp - that is also Gina K.  It is from one of the Stamp TV Kits - Love that paper and it was my last little scrap.

Hop along, leave a comment on each blog and you could be the randomly chosen winner of a big grab bag of Gina K's best stamps!  The winner will be announced Tuesday, March 20th!

Thanks for looking at my card -- Now hop on to Karen Knegten's blog, her card will make you smile.  It is gorgeous!  At the end of the hop be sure to make a final stop at Stamp TV and let us know how you liked the hop.
