Creativity is a central source of meaning in our lives---when we are involved in it, we feel that we are living more fully than during the rest of life.

Design Team Alumni Blog Hop

All of the alumni from the Gina K Designs Center Stage Design Teams have been invited to participate in blog hop challenges and tonight is the second one. Thanks to Carolina Buchting for organizing these challenges and hops for us. Tonight she shared this photo with us and challenged us to use it as our inspiration for a card.

How fun is that?? I love all the great colors and the yummy treats! I'd love to get that box for my birthday! 

Here is the card it inspired me to create.


When I saw the picture of the treat box with the big spots of different colors, it immediately made me think of Melanie Muenchinger's latest stamp set from Gina K Design's Fun Year Round. I pulled it out and stamped the main circles image on Pure Luxury Sweet Mango cardstock in Memento Tuxedo Black. Then I stamped some of the circle designs inside the circles with Memento Tangelo ink. I punched circles from various paper scraps (I think they were SU Bermuda Bay, Pure Luxury Bubble Gum and Grass Green. I stamped designs on each of those as well. 

The cupcake, candle and party hat are from another set of Melanie's from Gina K Designs called Candles on Your Cake. I stamped them and cut them out, added some glitter and then popped them up on pop dots. The greeting on the white circle is from the Gina K stamp set called Holiday Greetings that I stamped using Memento Tangelo and SU Bermuda Bay inks. The buttons are from Basic Grey and the ribbon is SU Bermuda Bay as is the card base.

What a fun, cheery card to make, and I hope someone will enjoy receiving it as well. Enjoy the rest of the hop by moving on to Linda Payne's blog to see what beautiful creation she was inspired to make.

Thanks for stopping by!
