Gina K Previews - Day 4

Hello! It's the fourth and final day of the Gina K Designs release sneak peeks. All the new sets will be available for purchase tonight after 10pm Central. Today we are showing projects featuring the new Free With Three stamp set, called Framed Greetings. This stamp set will be sent free if you purchase three regular sets. (Details here) I made two clean and simple cards using Framed Greetings. The details for the first card are below.

For my second card, I stamped the frame image using Memento Bamboo Leaves ink on PL Ivory card stock. The flowers and butterfly were stamped separately, colored with Copics and cut out. then stamp popped them up with Pop Dots and adhered them to the frame image. I stamped the fern from my new set, Little Critters, using Memento Bamboo Leaves, stamped off once to make it lighter. Then I added the sentiment from Framed Greetings, stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. The entire image was cut out and adhered to a PL Creme De Menthe card base.

For more inspiration, check out what the rest of the Design Team has created...
We will be having a release party at StampTV at 7pm Central tonight (Thursday). There will be chatting, contests and challenges, plus Gina will show the full stamp sets. Then at 10pm Central, all the new stamps will be availble from Gina K Designs. I hope to see you at the party!

For the purple card, I started by sponging my background with Memento Lulu Lavender ink.

Sponged Memento Grape Jelly.

I colored the butterfly with Copic markers, starting by filling in with V01 and adding shading with V06.

For the flowers, I filled in with BG10 then shaded with BG02 and BG05.

Then for the foliage, I filled in with YG25 and added YG93 to shade.

I stamped the sentiment, from Framed Greetings, with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I layered with Pure Luxury Black Onyx, Turquoise Sea and Vibrant Purple. I tied buttons to some satin ribbon to embellish. The buttons are from Gina's Purple Mix Button Jar.

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