Stamp TV CSS Alumni Blog Hop


Hey, there! Today I get the priveledge of participating in another Stamp TV CSS blog hop! If you've come from the talented Giovanna Smith's blog, you've landed in the right place!  If not, make sure to go to our main forum on StampTV so you don't miss out on all the inspiration! :)


This time the CSS alumni were challenged to make a card according to these specificaitons:


  • Your design must be CAS - Clean And Simple: lots of white or open space with one main focal point
  • One image
  • One sentiment
  • One layer card - your card base plus only one more layer
  • Embellishments - you can use any number of embellishments you want, but they all must be the same color

It was a little more challenging that I thought it would be but I was able to do it! Here is what I came up with:
I started off with a Gina K Pure Luxury card stock base in Kraft.  I used one of the labels from Nina Brackett's "Lovely Labels" set for my one layer and focal image.  The sentiment was from Gina K's Spring Mix stamp set and it was stamped in Memento Pear Tart.  I colored the flowers with copic markers YG03, G24, G28.  I added the pearls for my embellishments and that was it!   Clean and super simple!

Now for more inspiration, go visit Jen Charboneau!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Janice :)
