Gina K Preview Day 3 - The Journey and Many Wishes

The Journey - Illustrated by Aslea Hopkins

The Journey the new stamp set from Asela Hopkins. You will love the beautifully drawn images in this set. They are so wonderfully detailed and the sentiments she included are just perfect. This set will be wonderful for cardmakers and scrapbookers, alike.

I chose to used this amazing Adirondack chair for my card today. I colored it with Copics and then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. I used my Nestabilities to cut it out, then sponged Creamy Caramel ink while it was still in the die.

I made that background paper with another stamp from the set, repeatedly stamping it with Old Olive ink on Pure Luxury Ivory cardstock. The patterned paper below that is from Gina's new digital paper pack, called The Great Outdoors. You are going to love the papers she created in this set. It goes beautifully with the new Soft Sand Pure Luxury and it's free! Be sure to check the Freebies page at StampTV on Friday to download this gorgeous set of digital papers.

Our CenterStage Spotlight Design Team members Selma Stevenson and Pam Imholz are joining us this morning with previews as well!

To get the dandelions white, I stamped the images on Pure Luxury White cardstock using Versa Mark ink.

Sponged Bashful Blue ink.

Sponged Ballet Blue and just a little bit of Lavender Lace, going a lot heavier on the upper left corner.

I stamped a few drifts of fluff on a second piece and sponged it the same way. Layers are Pure Luxury White, Black Onyx and Bashful Blue (SU).

I also decorated the inside by stamping the dandlion with Bashful Blue and stamping the sentiment on top.

Thanks for visiting. I hope you have a great day!

Beautiful Theresa...what a wonderfully colored chair you have created, and Gina's digital paper is a fantastic compliment to this beautiful card.

I love all the awesome dimension you've added to your Many Wishes card. How creative to carry the seeds off the main image onto the other panel. I love the blues and blacks together...how elegant!
