Good morning! Today some of us from the Gina K. Designs team are showcasing some past favorite sets from Gina K. illustrators Debbie Corbari and Beth Silaika. Another mini hop to start your Monday right, we hope it inspires! Grab your cuppa'! We also have another prize today: the Fleece Navi-Baa stamp set by Debbie Corbari! So be sure to comment on the blogs as you hop through for more chances to win! We will draw a name randomly from one of the blogs and will announce it Tuesday in the StampTV forum.
First I have one with Beth's Deck the Halls. The big bold ornaments in this set are some of the prettiest Christmas stamps I own. So easy to make really beautiful graphic cards in no time with just a few ink pads for a lot of gorgeous color! I stamped and stamped off the same ornament in GKD Cherry Red, Fresh Asparagus and finally Blue Raspberry inks on Pure Luxury White cardstock, added a greeting in Black Onyx, then did a quick wrap of gold cording to "string" my ornaments and popped it up on a GKD Pure Luxury Cherry Red card base. Step it up by adding a pearl or rhinestone or two to accent that pattern on the bulb. (Actually, think I'll go do that right now...)
Next, I am sharing one with Debbie's Fleece Navi-Baa! Well, I love Christmas, and I love puns, and I love SHEEP, so this set is a winner times three! I love how "poseable" these different little sheep appear, so I had to make some framing with the little strand of lights, imagining the "Clark Griswold" places he might take it! Images are stamped in GKD Black Onyx and colored with my Spectrum Noir markers: BG6 and BG7 for face and ears, DR3, DG3, BT3, GB6 for the lights, and IB2 for shadow and hoof prints in the snow. Finish with Wink of Stella pen swiped on body and lights. Cardstock is GKD Pure Luxury White and Grass Green for the base.
