Snowman Joy Tutorial and Gina K Designs Invitation Blog Hop



 Hello and welcome! Today the Gina K Design Team are blog hopping to showcase the new release stamp sets and invite you to the release party tonight. My card features images from a set I illustrated, called, Let It Snow.

I've made a video to show you how I made my card and there are step by step still photos below. 

All the new stamp sets will be available from Gina K Designs, starting tonight. And we would love to have you join us for the release party at StampTV, starting at 7pm Central. There will be chatting, samples from the design team, challenges and contest questions.

As you hop through each blog, leave comments along the way because we will choose one random comment and that customer will win a Gina K. Designs prize package.

 Trim Pure Luxury Kraft cardstock to 5 by 10 inches and score halfway to form cardbase. Trim a piece of scratch paper to 5 by 5 inches and used Spellbinders® Classic Squares LG (largest die template) to cut center from the scratch paper. Then used repositionable tape to secure to card base front.

Cut a wavy line in sticky notes to form another mask. Place on card base and begin sponging with opaque white ink.

Move the mask lower and sponge again.

Move the mask lower again and sponge once more.

Remove the snowbank mask and sponge around the inner edges of the square frame mask, using opaque white ink.

Deepen the shadows behind the snowbanks by coloring in with BV11 and BV00.

Stamp the snowman image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then used Copic markers to color. Start with W3 to shade the body.

Add E53.

Then add E51.

Use YR07 and YR04 for the nose.

Use N5 and N3 for the hat.

For the tie and hat band, use R24 and R22.

Use E35 sand E31 for the broom. After coloring, cut out the image.

Stamp the sentiment, also from Let It Snow, onto the 5 by 5 inch card base, using Memento Espresso Truffle ink. Add decorative score lines to two corners, using a Scor-buddy or other score tool. The snowman was adhered using dimensional adhesive.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you day is wonderful!

What a marvelous card! I'm so literal (which doesn't please me) I would never have thought of using anything but white for snow.. Also I like the way you framed the scene, not only by sponging but with the corner scoring. TFS and teaching.
