Incentive Stamp Set- Through Thick and Thin


Please enjoy the gorgeous inspiration samples from the team and then comment on each blog for your chance to win a $20 Gina K Designs gift certificate! To see who won, check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hop. Ready for some inspiration? Here are a few of the projects I have created for today’s hop, again , only patterned paper, cardstock, stamps and dies form the kit and incentive set!

I was really taken with the sheep instantly and loved how she was sassy kicking up just one little heel. it got me to thinking she could tip toe across these die cut flowers.



Next up, this bunny is taking flight! there re a lot of ways you can use the balloon die cut, but I decided to just stamp the strings on to the background and then die cut three balloons from the patterned paper pack and trim of the string part , popping hem up on foam. This is such a great pack, so many fun prints! For the clouds, I stamped them, cut out, and then flipped them over to omit the outline, adding a little shadow with the GG2 like i used on the die cut bunny.
What a gorgeous incentive set this is! And prefect greetings for your besties! On this card, I mainly sponged but then added a few details with Spectrum Noir markers, like the stem and little darker yellow on the drkest parts of the flower. Not everything has to be perfectly shaded or inside the lines all the time, and I love the glow it creates on this flower and just suggesting color on the leaves! Mat is sponged with Turquoise Sea, Fresh Asparagus, and finally Wild Dandelion, to match the card base. Love these patterned chevron papers!

Last, I stamped this pair of flowers to go with the thick and thin greeting. It is easy to make your own stem with markers pencils, or pens!
