Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

Happy Monday everyone!! I hope you had a BEAUTIFUL Spring weekend like we did here!! OMGosh it was gorgeous outside and we had a wedding this weekend... perfect for Spring time!!!

I had so much going on this weekend and all I could do was think of the wonderful bright Spring colors that were popping up everywhere!!!

Sooo... this weekend I went BRIGHT!!!  I hope you like it!!  My color choices are... ROYAL BLUE, RED, AND YELLOW... and any neutral color you need to add.  Once again I added the inside so you could get another idea for those darker colored card bases.  I used the daffodils from Theresa's set, Sending Sunshine, the tulips from Melanie's set, A Beautiful Life, along with Melanie's, Inspiration Mosaic and the sentiment from the StampTV Kit, Spring Mix. Have fun!!!


Here's my sample.

And the inside.... I like to leave some cards blank so I can put whatever sentiment I need in later.

Please upload your creation to the STV gallery, using the tag STVCCTG7. You do not need to use Gina K Designs stamps to participate, although we'd love it if you did! In fact, if you use Gina K Stamps in your entry, that your name will be added to the prize drawing TWICE! Please be sure to create a new project for the challenge versus linking up something you've created before.

You have until next Sunday, April 18th, at 8pm CST, to upload your sample. One winner will be drawn at random to win a Gina K stamp set valued at $24.95 or less!

I hope you play AND have fun!!!  I can't wait to see what you come up with!

You can find the link to the gallery here...STVCCTG7

Wow. This is so beautiful. Love the bright colors. Hope I can play this week.
Lovely card, Hope to play as well!
Love your card!!! It's like a card you can buy here in the dutch touristshops, and those colors and motives ( pictures and products of tulips, windmills, woodenshoes) are so hot this moment in my country. For years nobody wanted to have these motives and colors in their houses, but now it's back, heehee! :) Hope to play along this week.
