An Elegant Hop


Welcome to my blog tonight we are showcasing Nina Brackett's latest stamp set Elegant Post for Gina K Designs. I am happy to be part of this blog hop, this is such a fun set to work with. For my card I did a little creative stamping, the post in this set is single sided and I wanted to have it double so I dusted off my stamp-a-ma-jig and made the post a double sided plant hanger. The flower pots are cut out and then attached to the DP. The cutting was not as bad as it may seem just time consuming. Finally I made this for Lee's pot luck Friday challenge today on StampTV.
It is a recipe challenge, 1 or more designer paper, 2 or more different types of bling, 3 or more pastel colors, 4 or more layers.

For more inspiration with her Elegant Post stamp set tonight, please see Nina Brackett's blog. Nina has also designed two gorgeous digital paper pack that coordinate perfectly with her stamp set. They are called Grungy Elegance and Simple Elegance.

Nina has asked her friends Silke Ledlow and Melissa Czapor to join in her blog hop tonight. We also have several of GinaK's Senior Design team members participating: Cathy, Donna, Emily, Erika, Gina, Jessica, Kurtis, Lee, and Theresa

And finally, be sure to check out my fellow CenterStage Spotlight Design team members' blogs: Shannon Bracken, and Sue Walsh for even more great projects!
