Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

Hi Everyone!

Welcome to a color combination challenge blog hop hosted by members of the Gina K. CSS Alumni team! As I am beginning the hop, you should have arrived from the StampTV forum here. Today we are featuring some of the beautiful hand drawn sets designed by Melanie Muenchinger and Theresa Momber!  Our color combo, courtesy of Sharri Seffens, includes 'Pumpkin Spice', 'Fresh Asparagus', and 'Sweet Corn' (neutral colors such as black, brown, ivory, or white are also fine to incorporate).  I have made two cards using Melanie's gorgeous set, "Branching Out".

Card stock is GKD PL 'Fresh Asparagus', and 'Sweet Corn'.  Patterned paper is GKD's "Poppy Prints".

I am giving this second card to my niece - photo is of her dog, Ginger.  Card stock is GKD PL 'Pumpkin Spice'. 

This beautiful frame fits perfectly on paper size 3.75" x 5".  The easiest way to stamp it is to cut your paper to this size first; then stamp.   This frame would be perfect for making personalized Christmas cards!  Just use Christmas dp/colors, and stamp the holly berries directly onto the vine!  

I have one more card today using Theresa's fabulous set "The Giving Tree".  This set incorporates all the seasons, and is chock full of super cute images!   Card stock is GKD PL 'Sweet Corn', 'Dark Chocolate', and 'Fresh Asparagus'.

As you hop along make sure to leave a comment because on Tuesday morning (September 25), we will randomly choose two comments from all the blogs and two lucky individuals will receive a Gina K. Designs Stamps set each (the winners will receive either a set designed by Melanie Muenchinger or Theresa Momber).

Now, it's time to see what awesome creations super talented Brenda Turner has for us at:
