Festive Scrapbook Page

Here is another project I showed on my blog during the Gina K previews last week. I didn't have room on that post to do a tutorial, so here it is now.

I used Melanie Muenchingers gorgeous new stamp set, Festive Frame to make my page. Since my page is 8 by 8, I only wanted to use the corner detail and stretch it out for a larger composition. So I used tape to mask off the oval, and corners of the stamp before inking. The tape kept those portions from getting inky.

Then I removed the tape and stamped the image on Pure Luxury Ivory cardstock. I repeated the process for the opposite corner.

To color I used my R29 Copic marker.

Added R24.

Added R22.

Used my blender pen to soften the highlights.

R29 on the berries, G05 & G99 for the greenery.

E31 and E57 on the cone.

I used an opaque white gel pen to add some highlights to the flower, tips on the cone and the berries.

For the large snowflake panel, I sponged a piece of Pure Luxury Ivory cardstock with Regal Rose ink.

Sponged Bravo Burgundy.

Then I dry embossed with my Snowflake Cuttlebug folder, and sponged over the embossing, very lightly with Bravo Burgundy.

I used Spellbinders Nestabilities to cut the scallop circle detail and Sateen Flowers, sponged with Bravo Burgundy ink. I layered with Black Onyx and Cranberry Tart cardstock.

This was also my sample for the scrapbook challenge at StampTV. You can find my challenge here. I would love to have you play along for a random chance to win a stamp set of your choice from Gina K Designs. Here is the sketch from my challenge.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful weekend!
