Welcome to the Stamp TV CSS blog hop for May. If you came here from Linda's fabulous blog, you are on the right track. If you didn't and would like to start from the beginning of the hop, head back over to Stamp TV where you will find the complete list of blogs on the hop.
Our hop for May is a color challenge. Miesje challenged us to make a non-Christmas card that is red and green with a neutral color (black, white or tan). This was a fun challenge, and I got to make a card with one of my favorite summer fruits . . . can you guess which one? Here it is!
Sweet Strawberries. I stamped the large strawberry plant onto the white panel and colored it with Copics. Then I stamped the small plant onto a piece of white scrap paper, colored it and cut it out. I glued it onto the main panel just to give a bit more depth and the feel of a patch of strawberries. All of the paper used on the card is from Gina K Designs Pure Luxury line: Fresh Asparagus, Red Hot, and White Layering Weight. The patterned paper is the Gina K Berries and Vines paper. The greeting is stamped with Gina K Designs Red Hot Ink and the strawberries were stamped with Gina K Black Onyx. The buttons and ribbon were from my stash.
Be sure to leave a comment here and on each of the blogs as you go 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, May 28.
Now head on over to Joy's blog to see the gorgeous creation she has for you!
