Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

Hi Everyone!

It's time for another 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 sketch challenge for you!  We were to create a card or project based on the following sketch by Melissa Cash - thanks, Melissa, for another great sketch!

 

I have two cards for you today.  I used Theresa's "Under the Sea" for my first card - love how detailed and realistic these images are! 

For my next card, I used Melanie's "Branching Out".  Sentiment is from last year's Christmas StampTV kit "Wishing you Joy".  Card stock is GKD PL "Cherry Red". This card came together quite quickly; and would be flat to mail, especially if I did not pop up the main panel.  One more card for my Christmas stash!

Thanks for stopping by!  Make sure you leave a comment as you hop along; because on Tuesday, October 30th, we will randomly choose one of the comments from all the blogs, and that person will win a huge grab bag of fabulous Gina K Designs stamps!  Next up is super talented Brenda Turner at:

Beautiful cards, Betty! Wonderful coloring on the underwater scene! The mesh ribbon is awesome.

Betty I love how you used the vines as accents behind the stamped oval frame!  that underwater scene is terrific!

Great take on the sketch, Betty, adore the fish card with the net.

Love this sketch and thought you did a great job.  Both cards are cute and both are different.  Thank you.
