Preview Day 2 - Sports, School, Spirit

I'm soooo excited to be posting a Preview for you today of Melanie Muenchinger's newest set, "Sports, School, Spirit". This is just ONE of Melanie's sets that will be revealed Thursday night at the "Release Party" on SCS.

My first card is done using Melanie's, "Inspiration Mosaic" set from last month's release. I stamped the grid on Gina's K's Summer Fabrics digital paper then paper pieced the Stars and Stripes digital paper paper in the corners and middle of the grid (BOTH of these digital papers are FREE on STV!!). My card base is Gina's Pure Luxury Heavy Base Weight, In the Navy. My next layer is Gina's NEW MOONLIT FOG cardstock and it matches the Momentos London Fog ink!!! When I first saw this newest grey, I thought it had a greenish hue to it, but as I began using it with my Navy, I thought it had a blueish hue. I love it when a color coordinates with so many others and really gives off just the right tint no matter what you use it with.

Next I stamped the trophy, ribbon and helmet onto some Pure Luxury Layering Weight paper and colored them in with my Copics. The trophy "cup" is colored in with my Sakura Glaze Pen to add shimmer. I also went around the blue ribbon's circle with my Stardust Glitter Pen.

Now, who can design for an illustrator that actually LIVES in Texas without adding a star to that football helmet?!!! My star came from Lazy Days of Summer and fit just perfectly on Melanie's helmet! How cool is that??!!! GO COWBOYS!!! (Ok, I admit, I'm a Dallas fan myself after having lived there for 6 years.)

For more inspiration with the stamps previewed today, visit Gina's blog as well as Melanie Muenchinger, the illustrator of Sports, School, Spirit. For even more projects with tonight's two stamp sets, these Senior Design Team Members are participating in previews today: Carolyn, Cindy, Donna, Emily, Erika, Lee, Lynn, and Theresa as well as our CenterStage Spotlight Design Team members: Tina Gilliland and Vicki Dutcher Don't forget about our Release Party on SCS starting at 7pm CST on Thursday, August 27th. There will be contests, challenges, lots of chatter as well as a ton more samples shared by the Senior Design team members and our CenterStage Spotlight team too. We'd love to have you join us!

Great card, Tina! Love how you combined so many sets with the new one. Very fun!

Charlene Merrick (LilLuvsStampin) said...

This is really cool, Tina! I love how you paper pieced the stars into the mosaic bg, which was just so perfect for your trophy showcase! I also like your use of the notched corner punch. I'll have to check the Moonlight Fog with the navy because I see a greenish hue when I look at it, too.
