Not Forgotten - Gina K Preview Day

Today I am sharing a preview of Gina K's newest stamp set, Not Forgotten. It is a wonderfully touching sentiment set, with the perfect thing to say in those difficult weeks and months after someone has lost a loved one. It is the perfect set when you are looking for something so say when someone is facing a holiday without their loved one.

I made my card using the beautiful sentiment from Not Forgotten and added Asela's peace lily from her new set, Friendship's Garden.

I colored the lily with Copic marker, Y21, and the leaves with YG03, G21 and G05.

For the flower pot, I used E31, E33, E35 and E37, and used C3 for the stones in the pot.

To create the background for the lily, I cut a rectangle using my rectangle nestabilites and embossed using my tan mat. While the paper was still in the nestie, I sponged So Saffron ink using my new Jumbo Dauber! I'm in loooooove with my new dauber and must get more. I only ordered three to check them out. You can see my old So Saffron sponge in the photo above. They get so torn up, but I can't stand to throw them out, because they work so much better when they are "broken in." I can't wait to see how long these daubers last, because they work so much better.

I stamped the sentiment on Pure Luxury Ivory cardstock and cut it using my oval nestabilibites, then sponged the edges with So Saffron. Both the image panel and sentiment panel were backed with a scalloped layer, again using my Nestabilities.

I added a satin bow and then assembled the card, using a Pure Luxury Ivory cardbase.

Beautiful Theresa! LOVE the sponging of course (had to say it, it's been awhile, lol!) and the ivory cardstock as the base really makes the white of the flower pop! LOVE it!
