For Teacher - Gina K Preview Day 3

Hi and welcome to day 3 of the Gina K previews. First I want to say thank you so much to everyone that has commented, messaged and emailed. I am blown away by all your kindness and encouragement. I am going to be in Copic certification class, in San Francisco, all day and driving the rest of the time, so it may take me a few days to reply to everyone. I wonder if my gas mileage will be better since I am going to be floating to S.F. My poor family. I have just been giddy with happiness and they haven't been able to pry me off the ceiling.

And now I want to talk about this fabulous new stamp set from Carolyn King (aka Cammie). It's called Nurse Feelgood and it is the compliment to Dr. Feelgood, released by Cammie last year. The possibilities are endless with this set, especially when combined with Dr. Feelgood.

In addition to Nurse Feelgood, Gina's new Free With Three set, Notes to Mom, is being previewed tonight. You are going to love this set. It is great for Mother's Day, but also for anytime you want to send a special card to a mother in your life. The best part is, it will be free if you purchase three sets. To see samples of both sets, please visit the rest of the design team and be sure to start at Gina's blog for a chance to win a free set!

Cammie designed the set so that can leave off the nurse's cap and create something with a teacher theme, so that is what I did.

Here are the details...

For the skin tones, I used Copic markers, E51, E53 and my colorless blender. For the lips, I used R22.

For the blouse I used V01, V12 and my colorless blender.

For the skirt I used V04, Vo6 and the colorless blender.

For the book/papers/medical chart (depending on how you are using the set) she is holding, I used Y21 and Y23. Then I used a black marker and wrote "notes." I love how you can customize it like that! After coloring, I cut the image out.

For the background, I used a few images from Cammie's Whimsical Autumn set. I stamped the apple and vase, then colored them with Copics. Then I went over both images with my Versa Mark pen and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

Next I sponged So Saffron ink lightly all over, then added post-its to mask the top and sponged the floor using Creamy Caramel and Chocolate Chip in a diagonal direction.

Next I masked off the bottom and sponged the wall using Creamy Caramel and Going Gray.

To make the desk, I place two post-its parallel to each other and a third at an angle.

Sponged Chocolate Chip and black ink. Then I moved the bottom and side post-its just slightly and added a vertical post-it, to create some perspective, and sponged just a bit more.

For the desk legs, I just used a straight edge and a marker to draw a line.

To assemble the card I popped up the school girl using pop dots. I layered the card with Pure Luxury Black Onyx, Basic Gray Eva designer paper and used a Pale Plum card base. The ribbon is from my STV Floral Frenzy kit.

I also finished the inside of the card (not something I do often), using more of the Basic Gray Eva paper and sentiment stamps from Nurse Feelgood.

Thank you so much for visiting. I hope you have a great day and I'll see you tomorrow for another preview and then later the release party at SCS!
