"It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas" at Gina K Designs! Gina K and the illustrator team have been extremely busy preparing the most fun stamp sets with a variety of images and sentiments to make so many incredible cards and holiday projects.
I am a thrilled to be participating in today's blog hop as a new member of the design team. What a month to begin! This release is amazing.
Today, I am featuring two of the stamp sets from the new Stamp TV kit, Home For The Holidays. SO much loveliness in this kit! I love it all.
My first card uses a few of the small images from the Christmas Greenery set, designed by Gina K.
I stamped my sentiment in Charcoal Brown ink onto a heavy weight Ivory panel. I then stamped three of the tiny poinsettia images in Lipstick ink. I also stamped the poinsettia three times on a piece of Post-it tape, and fussy cut them to use as masks. I placed the tape masks on top of my images on my card panel, and randomly stamped the small pine sprig images first in Jelly Bean Green and again in Fresh Asparagus ink. I removed the masks from my flowers used my colored pencils to add a bit of shading and color to the flower centers. I used a ruler and a pencil to lightly draw in a candle. I used my Copic markers to color the candle, adding a bit of extra detail to the flame with colored pencil. I assembled my card with a Charcoal Brown mat with a Kraft card base.
My next project is a tag made with the Home for the Holidays set.
I made a folded tag using a 2 1/2" x 5 1/2" piece of heavy weight white cardstock and colored it with Copic Markers. Don't you just love the heavy weight white for Copics? I love how it doesn't bleed through!
I made my first ever video to show you how I cut this tag. I know I have lots to learn about filming and editing, but I decided I needed to start somewhere! I hope you enjoy.
