Center Stage Spotlight Design Team Blog Hop!

Welcome to our first Center Stage Spotlight Design Team Blog Hop!

Jessica Fick, the Design Team Coordinator for GinaK Designs has issued a challenge to all of the past and present team CSS team members to make a Christmas card with one of these sketches:



We know you're going to LOVE what everyone has designed for us tonight!

along with Nina Brackett's Guest Designer: Lisa Hjulberg

All of these gorgeous cards from the entire team will be added to the StampTV gallery throughout the next few days with the tag cssjf1 (which stands for center stage spotlight jessica fick 1)

These sketches are also our sketch challenge for this week, so be sure to check out all the information in the discussion in our Challenge group over on StampTV Thursday morning. We'd love to see your cards with the sketch too!
For my card I decided to use the simplified sketch. I usually mass produce my holiday cards and this year would like to go with more of a CAS style! I love this tree from the Holiday Cheer Stamp TV kit, there are so many ways to decorate it to give different looks!! You could add Liquid Applique or glitter on the branches for snow, different colored stickles on the little dots hanging from the tree, lots of possibilities!! I used Christmas Red stickles to keep with traditional Christmas colors, cut a small piece of Rocket Red cardstock and wrapped my ribbon around. This card was quick to make and easy to mass produce!!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are enjoying the hop!!
Supplies:
Stamps: Gina K Holiday Cheer
Paper: Gina K Pure Luxury White, All Spruced Up & Rocket Re
Ink: Vivid Vintage Green
Tools/Accessories: Circle & Scallop Circle Nestabilites, Christams Red Stickles, Gina K Ribbon, Swiss Dots Embossing Folder
