Many Thanks Card Tutorial and Video

 Hello! Today is the new Gina K Designs stamp release and release party and I get to show you a peek at my new stamp set, Always Autumn. If you've been watching Gina's snippets and sneak peeks, then you know there are some wonderful new products being released tonight, in addition to awesome new stamp sets. I used one of the new products, Gina K Gold Cord on my card today.

I hope you can come to the release party tonight. It starts at 7pm Central at StampTV. All the new products, including this new stamp set, will be available at that time, along with all the other new products.

Also, be sure to visit Melanie's blog today. She is showing a peek of her new set Fabulous Frames Filler!

Here is a video to show you how I made my card. If you prefer to watch directly from my Youtube Channel, just click here.

Note: I accidentally referred to YR04, YR07 and YR12 as YG markers in the video. Sorry for the confusion.

Begin by stamping the pumpkin/sunflower image onto white cardstock, using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

Using Copic markers to color, start with YR07 on the pumpkins.

Add YR04.

 Fill in most of the way, using YR12, leaving just a few highlight areas uncolored.

Fill in completely using Y17. Then use Y17 to start coloring the sunflower petals.

Add Y23.

Then fill in the petals with Y000.

For the center of the sunflower, begin with E16.

Then fill in with E35.

Begin coloring the leaves using E37.

Continue coloring with E35.

Fill in with Y23, then use E33 to add a bit more shading and blending.

For the stems on the pumpkins, fill in with YG95.

Then shade with YG97. After coloring, use scissors to cut out the image and set aside.

For the background, cut and emboss white cardstock using Spellbinders® Radiant Rectangles. With the die cut still in the die template, begin sponging with Gina K Sweet Corn ink, sponging lighter in one corner and darker in the opposite corner.

Sponge Gina K Honey Mustard in the darker corner.

Create loops of gold cord and attach to back of pumpkin image using tape. Then adhere all layers using self adhesive foam squares onto a 3 ¾ by 5 ¾ inch Sandy Beach card base. The sentiment is also from Always Autumn and stamped onto a small strip of white cardstock.

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful day!

Finished card size 3 ¾ by 5 ¾ inches

I love these pumpkins and sunflower. Wonderful tutorial too :)

I think you used YG several times in the video and on the supplies list when you meant YR. Though people should be able to figure it out when they look at their Copics.
