Woodsy Pink Sunset Tutorial and Invitation

Hello! It is release party time at StampTV tonight and you're invited. The party is from 7 to 9pm Central, at StampTV. All the new release stamp sets will become available in the Gina K Designs online shop at that time. Here is another peek at my newest stamp set, The Northwoods. All the illustrators are showing samples today, so be sure to check their blogs to see what they have to show you…

Start hopping here:

Gina K

Becky Oehlers

Beth Silaika

Debbie Corbari

Melanie Muenchinger

Tami Mayberry

Theresa Momber


 To start, I cut a piece of Pure Luxury White card stock to 4 3/4 by 3 1/2 inches, then sponged Memento Cantaloupe ink in the center.

 I cut a circle to mask for the sun and placed it over the yellow ink, using repositionable tape to get it to stay in place. Then I sponged around the sun using Gina K Innocent Pink ink.

 Sponged with Memento Rose Bud ink.

 Sponged Gina K Red Hot ink.

 Then I stamped the large tree and the smaller row of trees, using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

 I used torn sticky notes to mask off the top and sponged Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

 I repositioned the sticky notes higher and sponged a bit more. This time I used the same sponge dauber, but tapped off on scratch paper first so it would be mostly dry and come out lighter.

 I removed the mask and colored in the tree trunk with E49.

 Then with N5, I created some shadows extending from the trees.

 Next, I used an opaque white get pen to add some highlights to some of the tree branches.

Stamped the sentiment using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

I layered with Pure Luxury Dark Chocolate card stock and used a white card base (5 ½ by 4 ¼ inches).


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

GORGEOUS! Your tutorials are the BEST Theresa - thank you so much for taking the time to share them with us! I love the images you have sneaked for this set so far - they are intricate yet simple at the same time! (Does that even make sense?) Your shading is so beautiful, these images are going to look spectacular with all kinds of shading options behind them.
