Peace and Joy Video and Tutorial

Hello! Here is another peek at my new stamp set, coming out tomorrow, called Peace and Joy. It will be available from Gina K Designs, starting at 7pm Central tomorrow. There will be a release party at StampTV tomorrow at 7pm Central, as well.

Here is a video I made to show you how I created the card. If you prefer to watch directly at Youtube, click here.

Begin by cutting and embossing white cardstock with Spellbinders® A2 Matting Basics A die template. Cut along the edge of a sticky note to create a mask for a snowbank and place over the die cut.

Sponge Gina K Powder Blue ink along the mask, working it up into the upper area somewhat.

Sponge Gina K Navy ink, just along the very edge of the mask.

Remove the first mask and create a second one, placing it lower on the die cut. Sponge with Gina K Powder Blue.

Sponge along the very edge of this mask with Gina K Navy ink.

Remove the previous mask and create a third and final mask, placing it near the bottom of the die cut. Sponge with Gina K Powder Blue, this time keeping the ink a bit lighter that before.

And sponge again with Gina K Navy just along the edge, very, very lightly.

Sponge around the edges of the die template with more Powder Blue ink.

Remove the die cut from the die template and use a sticky not to mask the left side. Then stamp with the pine cone branch image, using Gina K Black Onyx ink. I also stamped the image a second time, more to the left, to get a few more pine needles to show along the edge.

Begin coloring with Copic Marker E37 in the darker areas of the pink cone and branch.

Fill in the pine cone with E33.

Add some color to the pine needles with YG97. Swipe along each needle with the brush tip of your marker, lifting at the end of your stroke, for the best effect.

For the card base, prepare a 4 ¼ by 5 ½ inch card base and emboss a frame in the front with a larger die template from the A2 Matting Basics A set. Stamp the sentiment on a ½ inch strip of white cardstock. Trim Pure Luxury In the Navy cardstock to fit behind the sentiment and die cut pieces and adhere layers. Secure the image layer to the card base, then add the sentiment using adhesive foam squares.

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