Elegant Blog Hop!!!

Friday's are Elegant!!!! Especially if you're stamping with Nina's newest stamp set "Elegant Post".



This is just an amazing set!!!! There are soooooooooooo many options with it....and the sentiments are just elegant. This first card I used the post, birdcage, and the 2 loving birds. Aren't they cute? I also used the sketch fromt his week's StampTV sketch challenge. It just worked so perfectly for this stamp set.

This card I sent to Kristen for her 21st birthday. I thought it was especially "girly"!! I paired the post and flower with Melanie's "Cuddles and Hugs" set for the leaves and grass.



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

And finally, be sure to check out our CenterStage Spotlight Design team members' blogs: Brenda Turner and Sue Walsh for even more great projects!

Happy Stamping!
