Love in the Air Challenge - GinaK Designs


     Thanks for stopping in today! I created this card for the Love-in-the-Air challenge at GinaK Designs. I used the Boho Flowers stamp and die collection to create my flowers. I used two sizes and used foam tape to adhere them to each other.
     The sentiment stamp is in the Sending Love collection.
     As you no doubt know about me by now, I tend to save the smallest scraps of paper and cardstock. But, look at the fun way I used them on this card and the one below. I like playing around with the panels that I use on my cards. Anything to make them a little different and interesting. 
     I used GinaK Designs cardstock in Lemon Drop and Wisteria to make my card bases and flowers on these two cards. The panel on the card above is also a scarp that I created when I was brushing on ink to some die cuts recently. Pretty, no? I created the panel on the card below by placing a little chip of watercolor paint and water into a spray bottle and spritzing white cardstock. I'll try to make a post soon about some of my background fun.

     Enjoy our day and stay warm and safe out there. May the Lord be glorified by the work of my hands, 



A Masked Card

     Thanks for stopping in today to see my new card. This one was lots of fun to make. I stamped the background first. Using a few sticky-notes, I masked off the squares that I wanted to keep clear. I stamped my flourishes and then removed the masks. So easy to do, but you surely must agree that it looks more difficult that that!?! 😉

    I used a white card base and several layers of matting. I've used this background stamp from GinaK Designs (Inspiration Mosaic) so many times. It's one of my all-time favorites. The sentiment is part of the Inspiration Mosaic collection. The flourish stamp is from Inkadinkado.
     I love matching envelopes, so I always fancy them up if I have time. 
     Enjoy your day and stay safe out there. May the Lord be glorified by the work of my hands.
