CSS Inspiration Blog Hop

It's time for another GinaK CenterStage Spotlight Team Blog Hop!
Each artist was asked to design their project by drawing inspiration from these photos of the AMAZING Christmas Cookie Bouquet the CSS Team sent to Gina's DT Coordinator Jessica Fick:
Here is the first card I created for the hop! I chose Melanie Muenchinger's, "Inspiration Mosaic" and went with the colors of the blue cookies for my inspiration. Using Gina K's Pure Luxury Ocean Mist paper matched the color I was looking for. I then used Melanie's, "Hip to Be Square" set and heat embossed it in white. Then put all the elements of the snow men in different blocks and finally, added him all together in one. My sentiment was also from a set designed by Melanie, "Festive Frames". My second card I again went with the same color and used yet another of Melanie's stamps, "Have a Cookie"... it IS a cookie bouquet.. hee hee. Since Jessica is such a sweet person and all of us on the Center Stage Design Team just adore her, I knew this card was definitely the card that reflected the bouquet for me. I started off using my Cuttlebug Swiss Dot embossing folder and lightly brushed over it with my Aqua Vivid Ink pad. The color matches Gina K's Pure Luxury Ocean Mist paper so nicely. I stamped and cut out two of the cookies from the set. After coloring the top of them using my Versamarker I heat embossed adding clear embossing powder to them making them appear to be yummy frosted cookies!!! I added some half white pearls to the cookies for sprinkles and also to mimic the design on the original cookies. Here's a close up so you can see how shiny the "frosted" cookies look. Good enough to eat, huh?? I used my Nestabilities hearts to create an area to place my sentiment. A bit of black satin ribbon to tie in with the black on the cookies and there you have it... my sweet card for a sweet Design Team Coordinator! *smile*
