Today there is a very special Gina K Designs blog hop, featuring the brand new Gina K Card Kit Club Design Team. I was so excited (and a little star struck) when I saw who is on this amazing team. These talented ladies will be sharing projects today, using the card kits that Jessica has designed.
Be sure to stop by their blogs for some great inspiration.
Colleen Schaan is using my set. Yep, the Colleen Schaan. Seriously!
My card today for two challenges. The first is the Featured Stamper challenge at SCS. This is the card I chose for inspiration. Participants were to change at least two things. I changed...
Used snowflake stamps instead of punches.
Didn't use CB folders.
The other challenge this is for, is the Copic Creations challenge to color snow/snowpeople. Here are the details on how I made my card...
I started by stamping the snowpeople, from Winter Friends, with Memento Tuxedo black ink and then used Copics to color. First, I used C3 along the edges of the head and body.
To give them a bit of a blue tinge, I added B00, then used my blender pen to push back the color from the center, softening the transition from plain paper to where I colored.
On the snowman's hat, I started with N7.
Added N1, then again used my blender pen to push back the color from the highlighted area.
For the vest, I started with B26.
Filled in with B21.
For his scarf, I started with G28 around the edges.
Filled in with G21 and then used my blender pen to push some highlights back in.
I used the same markers to color the snowwoman's clothing. I used YR07 for the noses and R22, R24 & R29 for the present.
For the background I first masked off the bottom with torn Post-it Notes, then sponged Bashful Blue ink (SU).
Sponged Ballet Blue ink (Su).
I moved the masks and sponged a little more Bashful Blue in the foreground for snowbanks, then sponged Vivid Inky Blue, heavy on top and lightly around the edges on the bottom.
Put the masks back and stamped the trees from Life is Good.
Added some shadows with C1 and some snow on the trees with an opaque white gel pen.
I stamped a snowflake with white pigment ink in the sky. Layered with Pure Luxury In the Navy cardstock and used a heavy base weight white cardbase. The sentiment is from Holiday Greetings, one of the stamp sets in the Holiday Cheer StampTV kit.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a happy Monday!!!
