Simply Fabulous!

**Gina K Stamps are NOW available in both CLEAR & RUBBER!**


Today the Gina K DT is showcasing 3 new stamp sets for you and this one combines 2 of them!  I used both the StampTV set “Hello Sunshine” AND “Birthday Greetings” on this project.  The Birthday Greetings is a fabulous set to have and I adore each sentiment especially this one!  I created the background paper with the StampTV set.  I stamped the flowers with cream ink and the leaf stamp image with dark green ink onto my lite green cardstock randomly.  I love the monochromatic colors of this card, fresh and elegant!  The darker green cardstock has a slight pattern to it like linen which I left alone.  Some cream ribbon and a bow with my Bow Easy finished it off.

I stamped the sentiment from “Birthday Greetings” in dark green ink and then stamped the flowers from the StampTV set over it with cream ink and then added pearls to the centers of the flowers.  Pretty and simply elegant and super easy to do!



The second card I made is a CAS-one-layer-card…do NOT faint…I know you are in shock but YES I did create a one layer card LOL!  I liked the images from this Free With Three set “Life’s A Beach” (buy any 3 stamps sets from Gina K and get this one for free)---they are very graphic so I went with a simply-graphic card!  I stamped the sand pail onto my kraft cardstock, then paper pieced parts of the sand pail with patterned paper.  I shaded the paper with my Copics before pasting it on.  I used my Sharpie White Poster Pen for the white accents..I love white on kraft cuz’ it POPS!  I stamped the sentiment with white ink and added Stickles to it and then put some black pearls underneath.  I scored my kraft cs with my Scor-Pal for 3 raised score lines…then cut 2 thin strips of pattern paper and added them in between…with a line of Stickles in between.  The black lines were drawn with my black Spica and and then added white dots with my Sharpie.  So yes its CAS but I added lots of tiny details LOL!  I have to say I quite like it Winking smile

Ok now you need to hop along and see what the rest of the DT has created for you today…its sure to be fabulous!
