Gina K Inspiration Blog Hop - Let It Snow and Winter Blocks.


Hello! Today the Gina K Design Team are blog hopping to inspire you with samples from our newest release. We are featuring my latest stamp set, Let it Snow, along with Tami's latest Winter Blocks. I'll share the details for my card below, but for now, be sure to visit all the team blogs for more inspiration featuring today's stamp sets…

 To start, I used Spellbinders® Timeless Rectangles to cut and emboss Pure Luxury White cardstock. Then I sponged with Gina K Ocean Mist ink, with the cardstock still in the die template.

 I stamped one of the snowflakes using Gina K Ocean Mist.

 Stamped another snowflake with Gina K Powder Blue ink.

 For the third snowflake, I stamped using Gina K Wild Lilac, but stamped off on scratch paper first to make the image lighter.

 I removed the cardstock from the die template, then used my Sticky Glue Pen on each of the snowflake and sprinkled with iridescent glitter.

 The snowman was stamped on Pure Luxury White, using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

 I started my shading with a Copic marker, BV11.

 Added BV00.

 Then added BV000.

 For the hat, I started with N7.

 Added N5.

 Then filled in with N1.

 For the nose, I used YR07 and YR02.

 I used BG05 for the tie and hat band.

 Then filled in with BG02. After coloring, I cut out the image, trimming away the broom.

The sentiment was stamped on white using Gina K Blue Raspberry ink. Then I used my sticky glue pen again to add glitter.

Both glittered pieces were layered with Pure Luxury Ocean Mist cardstock. The sentiment was tucked under the snowman thumb. I used self adhesive foam squares to pop up the snowman and sentiment and used a white card base (4 ¼ by 5 ½ inches).

Thanks for visiting. Have a crafty day!
