Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

Hi Everyone!

It's time for a Center Stage Alumni Blog Hop!  As I am first on the list today, you should have arrived from the StampTV forum here.  This time we have a color combo challenge for you, courtesy of Linda Payne!  We were to create a Christmas card or project using non-traditional Christmas colours - no red or green.  Here we go.....

Image is from "Merry Tree".  Sentiment is from "Holiday Greetings". Patterned paper is from GKD PL paper pack "Wishing You Joy".  Card stock is GKD PL "Dark Chocolate".  

The next three cards are quick and easy, and uses the same basic layout.  They are also flat for mailing.

Snowflake is from "Holiday Cheer", and sentiment is from "Wishing You Joy".  Card stock is GKD PL "In the Navy".  


Sentiment is from "Wishing You Joy". Card stock is GKD PL "Blue Raspberry". Patterned paper is from the GKD PL paper pack "Blizzard"These gorgeous papers can easily stand alone.


Sentiment is from "Wishing You Joy".  Patterned paper is from GKD PL paper pack

"Winter Whimsy". 

Well, that's it for me today. I also want to take this opportunity to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas; and a happy, healthy, and crafty New Year! Thanks for looking!  

Make sure to leave a comment as you hop along because on Friday morning (December 21), we will randomly choose one of the comments from all the blogs and that person will receive a huge grab bag of fabulous Gina K. Designs Stamps!!

Beautiful cards, all of them.  It is so much fun to stray from the normal and think outside the box.
