Gina K Inspiration Hop Day 3 - True Love StampTV Kit


Hello and welcome to another Gina K inspiration hop. Today we are featuring the new StampTV Kit, True Love. This kit is jam packed with fun, whimsical images, perfect for everyday and romance cards. More details about my card below, but for now, be sure to check out what the rest of the design team has to show you...




To start, I cut a piece of Pure Luxury White card stock using rectangle Nestabilities, then I sponged Memento Cantaloupe ink while still in the die.

Then I sponged Memento Bamboo Leaves.

I removed the card stock from the die and stamped the flower, from the kit, on my sponged background. I began coloring the foliage using my YG97 Copic marker.

Added YG95.

Then added YG93.

On another piece of white card stock, I stamped the flower again, coloring the center with YG17.

Added R46 to the petals.

Added YV25.

Then added RV21. After coloring, I cut out the flower. 

I adhered the cut flower to the flower on my background, using Pop Dots. I layered with Pure Luxury Green Apple, cut using Scallop Rectangle Nestabilities. I used Pure Luxury Sweet Corn for my card base and added score lines with my Scor-Buddy. The sentiment is also from the True Love Kit, popped up with Pop Dots and on Pure Luxury White card stock. 

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a great day!
