Gina K Inspiration Hop!

Hi there friends!  I have a new Gina K Designs tutorial to share; however, this time, I'm using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers on my project along with the new stamp set called We Go Together.  

Step 1: Stamp the images using Black Staz On ink and watercolor paper.  Trim the images with scissors.

Step 2: Select a darker shade of pink (I used Peach Pink) and add color directly from marker to watercolor paper around the edges of the doughnut.

Step 3: Next, add a lighter shade of pink (Sugared Almond Pink) to the inside areas of the image.  Leave some white space for shading.

Step 4: Using a waterbrush, blend the two shades of pink together.

Step 5: For the coffee cup image, add Sugared Almond Pink to both edges of the coffee wrapper and blend with a water brush.

Step 6: Trim the wrapper and attach it to the coffee cup stamped on Kraft.

Step 7: Stamp a background using the Tiny Textures Stamp Set and Kraft ink.  Add both images to the card and then add glitter to the watercolored areas.

A close up of the colored images.

I hope you find some sparkle in your day today!

In the Dog House!

Isn't it fun when we get sweet little cards from our four-legged fur babies?  My husband always gives me cards from the dogs and I love it!   I made this card with that in mind using the Tanner Stamp & Die Combo set from the adorable Pawsitively Purrfect by Taylored Expressions.

In addition to this super cute stamp set, I used the new Build A Doghouse die set, the Frame in Frame 2 Cutting Plate, Picket Fence Border and Build A Scene - Rolling Hills to create this fun backyard scene.

Have A Fabulous Day!

Project Life ~ A Day in Florence

I can't believe it has been two years since we took this trip ~ and about two years to the day that we were here in Florence!  It was such an incredible trip and we really enjoyed this beautiful city!!   We packed so much into this day... click on the pages to enlarge them to read my journaling.

What a view!

The David!

Out & About

{Funny story... My daughter and I tracked down this place again last year, because we loved it that much.  We didn't even have the address, we just knew a general location}

I hope you enjoyed my little tour of Florence!

Congrats to the Graduate!

I've been making TONS of graduation cards this season and hey look... I make more than just green grad cards!  LOL!  

For my card today, I used the Graphic Greetings - Graduate stamp and paired it up with the Tag Stacklet 1 dies and the new Honeycomb & Chevron Embossing Folders!

Thanks for stopping by!

Having Fun with TE Patterned Paper

Hi Friends!  This month the Taylored Expressions designers are having some fun with TE Patterned Paper Packs.  I picked the gorgeous pack called Hello Happiness... it's one of my favorites.

I made a birthday card and matching gift box using several of the patterns in the pack along with the Up, Up and Away Cutting Plate and Tagging Along Box.

The sentiment on the gift box is from the From Me to You Stamp & Die Combo set and on the card I used the In & Out Birthday Stamp set.  To coordinate the two pieces, I also used the new Honeycomb Embossing Folder & Cookie Monster Cardstock as the background for both.

Thanks for stopping by today!
