Fruitful Harvest Blog Hop!

Hey there! Today we are having another Gina K blog hop, this time featuring Asela Hopkins, beautiful new stamp set, Fruitful Harvest. The images in this set are so big and so easy to color, with the wonderful shading that Asela drew right into the images. I used the gorgeous sunflower, stamped twice on my card and colored with Copic markers.

For even more inspiration with the Fruitful Harvest stamp set, head over to Asela Hopkin's blog, the illustrator of this beautiful stamp set. She has also asked her friend Deb Felts to share a card with us tonight too!

Then, take the time to check out all the other GinaK Design Team Member's sharing projects tonight on their blogs:


and our CenterStage spotlight designers:


Here are a few details about my card...

I stamped the sunflower once with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then stamped again on scratch paper to create a mask.

I placed my mask over the first image and then stamped the sunflower again.

Used Copic marker E37 on the center.

Added YR14.

And then went over the the rest of the centers with E33.

Used Y17 at the base of the petals.

Filled in the petals with Y23.

I went over the entire surface of my images with a Versa Mark pen so that embossing powder would stick and then heat embossed with clear.

Sponged a little So Saffron around the images.


Sponged Almost Amethyst.

Sponged Lavender Lace.

I layered with Pure Luxury Black Onyx and SU So Saffron. The little corner flourish is from a Cuttlebug die.

Thanks for visiting. Have a wonderful day!
