Special Delivery and Special Delivery Add-on - illustrated by Tami Mayberry
Hello and welcome to the first night of previews for the Gina K Designs September release. I am so thrilled to be sharing a project by a brand new illustrator to Gina K, the fabulous Tami Mayberry!
For her debut, Tami has illustrated two wonderful stamp sets. The first is called Special Delivery and has fun assortment of images for creating postage/postcard inspired cards and projects for nearly any occasion. The add-on set has a large background stamp and other elemental images that coordinate perfectly with Special Delivery.
For my card, I decided to go with a Christmas theme. I stamped the ornaments and colored them with Copics, then heat embossed with clear. Then I sponged just a bit of Certainly Celery ink and stamped the holiday themed post mark image. For the background, I stamped the snowflake from Special Delivery, using Versa Mark and then heat embossed the flakes, so they would stay white. Next I sponged the background using Bashful Blue and Ballet Blue inks, then stamped the large postage background stamp from Special Delivery Add-on.
I layered using Pure Luxury Black Onyx and the brand new Vibrant Violet card stock! I love this new color! You'll be able to purchase it as a solid color pack or it is also part of the new Autumn Assortment Color Paper Pack.
A Very Merry Christmas - illustrated by me!
Here is a sample using my new set, A Very Merry Christmas. I picked my favorite image from the set to make my card. I also used the new Good As Gold Pure Luxury card stock for my card base.

Now here are a few details about my card...
I stamped the jingle bells with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then used Copic markers to color, starting with Y17 on the darkest parts of the bells.
Then added Y23.
I added a little Y21 (sorry I didn't get a picture of that), then blended it all with my blender pen.
For the openings in the bells, I used E35 and YR12.
On the ribbon, I started with R29 in the darkest areas.
Then added R24. I filled in with R22. Sorry another missing photo. After coloring, I cut out the image.
For the background, I sponged So Saffron on a piece of Pure Luxury Ivory cardstock.
Then sponged Creamy Caramel.
I stamped the sentiment with Memento Black and then added the snowflakes, stamped with Creamy Caramel. Layered with Pure Luxury Chocolate Kiss and Rocket Red, with the new Good as Gold for my cardbase. (those brads are from the new StampTV kit!)
Thanks for stopping by. I'll be back tomorrow with more previews and don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win my new set!
Have a great day!
