Gina K New Release Blog Hop - Elegant Florals Video

Hello! Today the team at Gina K is having a blog hop featuring my new stamp set, Elegant Florals 2. Here is the card I made for today's hop.

Here is a video so you can see how I made the card. If you prefer to watch on Youtube, you can find it on my Youtube channel, here.

Here is another card I made, this time using the tulip image from Elegant Florals 2, along with Melanie's new Triple Play Frame image. I also used the small fern image from Triple Play.

I also made a card with Beth's new Delicate Damask stamp set. I embossed the small damask image twice using gold embossing powder.

 Start by trimming white cardstock to 3 3/4 by 4 1/2 inches. Then sponged around the edges, working inward using Gina K Powder Blue ink.

 Sponge the edges a bit darker with Gina K Blue Denim ink, then stamp the large Queen Anne's Lace image using Gina K Black Onyx.

 Stamp the smaller Queen Anne's Lace image twice with Black Onyx.

 Stamp the silhouette foliage image using Blue Denim ink, but stamp off onto scratch paper first to make the image lighter. Stamp the image a second time the same way.

Use an opaque white gel pen to add some highlights to the Queen Anne's Lace images.

Layer with a piece of Pure Luxury Black Onyx cardstock and adhere to a 4 ¼ by 5 ½ inch Powder Blue card base. Stamp the sentiment on a narrow strip of white cardstock and adhere to the card using 3D Foam Squares.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful day!

Finished card size 4 ¼ by 5 ½ inches.

Gina K Designs Release Day

Hello! I'm so happy to share with you a sneak peek of my latest stamp set for Gina K Designs, called Elegant Florals 2. This is a follow up set to the original Elegant Florals set from a few years ago.

I used the orchid image for this card, along with a silhouette background branch image. The flower was cut out and then adhered to a sponged background. The sentiment is stamped on vellum. I'll be posting a video for this card on Wednesday when the whole team participates in a blog hop featuring this stamp set.

Be sure to hop on over to Melanie's and Beth's blogs for an advanced peek at their new stamp sets, too! And I'm sure Gina probably has an invitation for you to come to our release party tonight, so don't forget to pop on over to her blog, too!

I hope you can join us at the release party, tonight, at StampTV.

Have a wonderful day!
