Gina K Blog Hop ~ Stamp TV Kit!

The Cast and Crew of Gina K Designs would like to welcome 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!   

The set we are featuring today is called 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!

For my card & tutorial today, I used two of the layers to show another way to get more from your Spectrum Aqua Markers.



Step 1: Begin by stamping the base of the leaves image using Jelly Bean Ink. (I began by stamping the 4 corners, but then decided I wanted to fill in the entire outside border).

Step 2: Stamp the outline layer with Fresh Asparagus ink.  NOTE: Gina has some great Tip Sheets for lining up and stamping the leaves and flowers for this stamp set.  

Step 3: Stamp the sentiment with Gold Pigment Ink and heat emboss with gold embossing powder.

NOTE: You could easily replace the ink pad & color the images with Spectrum Aqua Markers for this step as well.   However, this time, I decided to use ink pads.


Step 4: Using the smaller flower base, ink with the Terracotta Spectrum Aqua Marker.  Spritz the watercolor cardstock with water & then stamp.  Use a heat tool for quick drying.


Step 5: Stamp the outline floral image with gold ink and heat emboss with gold embossing powder.


Step 6: Repeat step #4 with Marigold Spectrum Aqua Marker & stamp/emboss the floral outline with gold.


Step 7: Repeat step #4 with Jasmine Spectrum Aqua Marker & stamp/emboss the floral outline with gold.  Trim each flower with scissors.


Step 8: Stamp 4 leaves with the Olive Spectrum Aqua Marker & stamp/emboss the leaf outline with gold.  Trim with scissors.


Spectrum Aqua Marker colors used for my card (Note: I didn't end up using the Moss, it was darker than I wanted)
