Snowman Wishes Tutorial - A Gina K Blog Hop and Special

Hello there! Today the Gina K Design Team are blog hopping to introduce four fabulous new "Duos" stamp sets and an amazing Labor Day sale.

I used the new Snowman Wishes Duo on my card. For more inspiration from the rest of the design team, check out the links below...


To make my card, I stamped on Pure Luxury white card stock and began coloring the snowman with my BV11 Copic marker.

Added BV000.

To color the scarf, I started with RV27.

Added R24.

Then filled in with R22.

For the band on the hat, I started with G07.

Then filled in with G03.

I used N5 to color the hat.

Added N3.

Then filled in with N1. After coloring, I cut out the snowman.

For the background, I started with a piece of Pure Luxury white card stock to 3 ¼ by 4 ½ inches. I cut a curvy line in sticky notes to mask the bottom and then sponged Memento Lulu Lavender ink. 


Sponged a bit of Memento Grape Jelly.

Then sponged very lightly with Memento Danube Blue.

I moved the sticky notes lower and sponged using the Grape Jelly Jumbo Dauber, without re-inking.


Then I removed the masks completely and sponged a bit more around the edges.

I adhered the snowman to the background and colored in a shadow below him with my C3 Copic marker.

I used an opaque white gel pen to draw in some snowflakes in the background, then layered with Pure Luxury Vibrant Purple. The card base is 4 ¼ by 5 ½ inches and Pure Luxury Heavy Base Weight White. 

Thanks for dropping by. I hope you have a fabulous day!
