Monday, July 23, 2018

Hello everyone!

Welcome back to part 2 of the Gina K. Designs Hot Summer Release.  I hope you enjoyed our release party last week.  If you missed it, you can see the beautiful cards over on StampTV.  If you want to see my cards, click here.

I am so in love with this release!  Lisa Hetrick's Just a Little stamp set is amazing!  There are so many possibilities with this stamp set, ok, I think I said that about the last release and probably the release before that.  Every release seems to get better and I can't help to say there are so many possibilities.  Lisa's set is so versitle, you can even use her Hello Beautiful and You Are with this set!

Just a Little 
Illustrated by  Lisa McClelland Hetrick

Here is the card I am sharing with you today.  My card is 3 1/2 x 5, I stamped the background with the background stripes from the Just a Little stamp set using Gina K. Wild Dandelion ink.  I stamped off, so the yellow would not be so bright.  I stamped the flower image with Gina K. Designs Amalgam Ink - Jet Black and  colored it with copics.  I fuzzy cut the small rose and the other flower from the Just a Little stamp set, I colored the rose with copics, and then used the solid image from the stamp set and stamped it with Gina K. Wild Dandelion ink.  I used foam tape and popped the flowers onto the card.  I finished the card off by stamping the sentiment. 


Closer look so you could see I painted some Nuvo Aqua Shimmer - Glitter Gloss over the flowers.


Grand Garden

My second card I am showcasing the beautiful Grand Garden by Alicia Krupsky. This stamp set is grand! I love this flower, again there are so many possibilities. I am so proud of my card, I decided I was going to tackle no line coloring. I thought this would be a great stamp set to do it with since the image is so large. I love how it turned out. I am going to keep practicing so maybe one day I will be able to color like my design team mate Arjita. This card is an A2 card, I stamped the flower image in the background with my favorite color Gina K. designs Passionate Pink. I stamped the sentiment and placed the leaves and flower where I wanted them to be. I used foam tape to pop the flower up. I finished the card off by adding some crystal drops.
 

Another look at my card.
