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. 

     Here is a link to the GinaK Designs blog if you want to play along. Home - Gina K Designs Still plenty of time left before the deadline. 
     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.



Come See the Magic Card

A Magical Card
Could it be magic? Pull the tab and find out.
     Pull the tab and see the magic happen. 
Keep pulling.

Pull it further until the bees are completely colored. Push the tab back down and the color vanishes.
I stamped the bees with stamps from Reverse Confetti. The sentiment tag stamped from Stampendous and I die-cut the frame with a Spellbinders Paper Arts die. THe beautiful cardstock is from the Paper Studio.
Thanks for stopping by today. 
     Enjoy your day and stay safe out there. May the Lord be glorified by the work of my hands,



Put on Your Red Dress Challenge, Card 2, Gina K Designs


     Thanks for stopping by today! I created this card for the Put-On-Your-Red-Dress challenge at GinaK Designs. The challenge this month is to use red as the main color on your card and to have a celebratory sentiment. 
     This mosaic background stamp (Inspiration Mosaic) in one of my faves. I use it a lot. I stamped it in red and matted it with red cardstock. I used foam tape to secure it to the card base. The sentiment is from the Sending Love collection. I used A Happy Hello stamp set to make the roses and leaves. I love matching envelopes so of course, I did a bit of stamping there.  

     I fussy-cut the roses and leaves and secured the large rose and some of the leaves with foam tape. There is still plenty of time to get your cards into the challenge. Here's a link to the GinaK Designs blog - Gina K. Designs Blog - Gina K Designs

Put Your Red Dress On Challenge - Gina K Designs

     Thanks for stopping by my blog today. 
     I created this card for the Put-On-Your-Red-Dress Challenge over on Gina K Designs blog. I heat-embossed the flowers using watermark ink and clear embossing powder. I created the patterned cardstock using just the watermark ink. I adhered my front panel flush with the upper left corner. I used foam tape between the two sizes of flowers and added white pearls to finish it off. The little trim on the right hand side I made from scraps. Hard for me to throw out even the tiniest pieces of cardstock. 
     I love matching envelopes so I used red chalk ink on my envelope.
     I used Gina K BOHO FLOWERS and STIPLLED FLOWERS stamp and dies sets.
     Hope you have a safe and fabulous day, Pamela
