Good morning! The Cast and Crew for Gina K Designs welcomes you to another fabulous blog hop celebrating the new Painted Autumn StampTV Kit! We hope to inspire you with some beautiful card projects as you hop along to each of the designer’s blogs! Today, we are featuring one of the stamp sets from the kit, Painted Autumn. In this set, you will find beautiful floral and leaf images where you will be able to create the 3 or 4-step stamping technique! You can create one floral image or an entire bouquet of gorgeous autumn flowers. This set will be great to use all year long!
This is a the first card I made. I just grabbed a stack of pads that coordinated with the colors Gina chose for the kit and went to town! Flowers are stamped in GKD Ocean mist, Sweet Corn, Honey Mustard, Cherry Red, leaves in Fresh Asparagus, (full strength and stamped off) and outlines and branches in Dark Chocolate. Fabulous flowers! Fabulous!! Cardstock from the kit is Pure Luxury Ivory, Ocean Mist, Sweet Corn, and Dark Chocolate. I traced a drop shadow on a couple words (always grateful) that I wanted to stand out, along with the flowers and leaves to make it pop. Pierced a few holes at corners and bottom to tie in the stitched ribbon. I love adding teeny details like this, to go with a sentiment like, "There is always something to be thankful for". Pick your fave element and enjoy!
This next card I wanted to show in some colors that aren't in the kit, since these images can be used year round, and two-, three- and four step stamping looks amazing in so many color combos, even unexpected (or unintentional) ones! Now the lavender, lilac, eggplant, was intentional, the Black Onyx on the leaves was not, I grabbed the wrong pad, ack! Let's just say, I am "so thankful" this card worked out! (Since you know I hate to start over) ;) These painterly flowers really do look good in any color. Base is Ivory and I added some Platinum Pearl Liquid Pearl accents to tie in the champagney-colored Kraft stamping on the leaves. (That also didn't quite turn out like I was expecting, was going for kind of shabby chic country look, but I think it turned out okay!)*
