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.

Center Stage Design Team Alumni Blog Hop

Tonight is another blog hop of the Stamp TV Center Stage Spotlight Design Team Alumni organized by Carolina Buchting. Carolina challenged us to create cards for tonights hop using only the following items:

  • One Neutral color for your card base: White, Ivory, Black, Brown or Kraft 
  • Two different colors of card stock
  • One patterned paper
  • Three buttons
  • One color of ribbon
  • As little or as many images as you'd like
Here is the card I created (and now that I am posting it I think I goofed and used one extra color of cardstock! Yikes! Does the ivory layer count since my images are on it?! Oops!)

Well, despite the fact that I guess I didn't quite follow the rules, I hope you like it! It got me in the mood to start making some Christmas cards. Maybe I'll actually get my cards done early this year!

Supply List:
Paper: Pure Luxury Cranberry Tart, Moonlit Fog, Chocolate Kiss (base of card) and Ivory
Designer Paper: Cosmo Cricket Jitterbug
Buttons: Basic Grey Sultry and Sugared
Ribbon: Stampin' Up Chocolate Chip
Stamps: Gina K Designs Spirit of Christmas and Holiday Greetings
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Rhubarb Stalk, Rich Cocoa, London Fog, Bamboo Leaves and Distress Ink Antique Linen
Spica Pens in Gold and Lipstick were used to decorate the tree.

Now hop along to the blog of Melanie Muenchinger to see her creation for tonight's challenge (and see if she was a better rule follower than me! LOL!). Melanie always has fabulous cards, not to mention the gorgeous stamp sets she creates. Check out her latest set at Gina K Designs (after you finish the blog hop, of course!).
