Stamp TV Color Combo Challenge Blog Hop

Today Carolina from Stamp TV has arranged a Color Challenge Blog Hop for us.  Geri from the Alumni Design Team has chosen the colors of  pink, red and one neutral (white, black or tan) for the challenge.

If you have come from Karen's blog  (I' m sure you loved her card) you are right on target!  If not, you might want to start at the beginning of Stamp TV right here.    So you will not miss any of the amazing projects!

Here is my 1st card:
This used the stamps from Seasonal Labels - the sweet little "love" sentiment is from the same set - I just did a little masking and was able to just use the love part of the stamp.  The cardstock is Black Onyx from Gina K.

Since the card is black, I put this on the inside in order to make it a little easier to write on:

The next card uses the "blackboard technique" that seems to be so popular now.
The darling little owl &stamp sentiment are from Sun-Kissed Autumn, the swirls are from Seasonal Labels, and the little heart is from Ticket Trio.  The beautiful scroll frame is from an older set that has
FABULOUS frames for making those neat chalkboard frames you see on Pinterest and is called Festive Labels (check it out here).  One of the things I like about Gina K stamp sets is that she packs so many stamps in a set, it is easy to find little ones that look great on those chalkboard cards.

Make sure to leave a comment as you go along because we will choose a random comment and that stamper will win a grab bag of Gina K. Designs products! Look for the announcement on Tuesday, February 12.

Now go along to  Geri's blog and get ready to say "wow", because she always has the most beautiful cards!

Thanks for looking at my card and have a Happy stamping day!

These are gorgeous, Joy! Thanks for showing us the inside - I always wonder what to include inside so it won't overtake the beauty of the outside!

Funny, but until about two weeks ago I'd never heard of the blackboard technique - now I'm seeing it everywhere. Weird!
