Gina K Preview Day 4 - Lazy Days of Summer and Ribbon Stripes

Good morning! Today is the last day of previews for the latest Gina K Designs release. I used two new sets, Lazy Summer Days (the new "free with three" set) and Ribbon Stripes, on today's project.

As soon as I saw some of the sets for this release, I knew I had to get back into scrapbooking photos of my daughter. The cute beachy images in Lazy Days of Summer reminded me immediately of these photos of my daughter from when she was just barely three years old.

To start, I cut a 7 by 7 inch piece of Pure Luxury Ivory layering paper and then I brayered So Saffron ink around the edges. Next I used an image from Ribbons and Stripes to create the dotted border around the edges, using So Saffron ink. The Ribbons and Stripes stamp set is going to be so perfect for creating edge treatments like this, but they can also be used to create beautiful backgrounds and stamp on ribbon.

I stamped the sand castle and bucket with Memento Tuxedo black ink, colored them with Copics, then cut them out. The photos were trimmed and layered with Pure Luxury Black Onyx. The background paper was also layered with black and the base is an 8 by 8 inch piece of So Saffron. I added some gems and sateen flowers that I colored with Copics.

The rest of the team has some fabulous projects featureing these two stamp sets. Be sure to start at Gina's blog and then hop on over to the rest of the team.
