Hello and good morning! Welcome to our January hop! Today we are showcasing the new StampTV Kit Made With Love. Please enjoy the gorgeous inspiration samples from the team and then comment on each blog for your chance to win an awesome grab bag of GKD goodies! To see who won, check the Big News Forum at StampTV on Thursday after the hop.
Here are some new cards I created with the Made With Love and Better With You stamp sets in the kit. And I just had to use all the new ink and cardstock colors, too!
There are some really fun two step floral elements in this kit. Look how the new GKD Lipstick ink pops! POW! This one uses Massive Messages for the greeting, Gina's new incentive set. Yep, you need 'em both! Add a drop shadow under everything with BG3 Spectrum Noir marker for dimension.
Here I used one of the card fronts from the foiling element page in the kit, but I don't have a laminator so it works really well as just a printed frame. I colored the stamped image as well as the loops in the frame and border with Spectrum Noir markers to jazz it up. LG shades look good with the new GKD Applemint cardstock. I like the look! The bird house is popped up.
And finally, here is an easy one with no images, just showing off the new colors and patterned paper with one Massive Message! I colored a white button with the F1 Spectrum Noir marker, this is a great match for the new GKD Lipstick cardstock.
These next two cards were in the release party, but wanted to point out some details. The heart stencil in the kit is really pretty, and sponged in a similar color ink as the flowers, they remind of petals more than hearts. I used GKD Peach Bellini over the stencil and then just a bit of the Lipstick at the corners. I swiped some Wink of Stella glitter pen over the flouncy flowers for some sparkle.
It may be hard to see it in the photo, but I did the glitter thing on these butterflies also.
I really like them stamped in the new colors and then shaded like a gradient with two or three shades lighter of the Spectrum Noir markers in each color group (GT and BT for Blue Lagoon and CR shades for the Lipstick). The flourish in the kit makes a nice trail.
Here are the pieces in the kit:
And the Incentive set Massive Messages, when shopping don't forget to get enough to qualify for that if you can!
