Day 4: Ribbons and Free Stamp of the Month!

Welcome to the final day of previews for GinaK's May release! Rest up - the party is tonight over in her Forum on Splitcoast Stampers. Unfortunately I won't be able to be there as my kids have their end of the year school program, but I know there will be lots of fun chatter and card samples to see! I've made several more cards that I was going to share during the release party, but I'll probably end up saving them and sharing them over the next week on my blog and over at StampTV.

My first couple of cards today are showing off Gina's new Free with Three stamp set called Lazy Days of Summer. I LOVE each of the images in this set and know you will too! I couldn't stop playing with this set... and can't wait to get it inky again soon! lol!


I used some Basic Grey Bittersweet papers and embellishments for this card along with a couple of Petaloo flowers. The images were stamped on White linen cardstock and embossed with clear embossing powder and then colored with Copic markers. I added some Crystal Lacquer and Diamond stickles to the ice cream for some added sparkle.

Here's the inside view...


Next up is an adorable sand bucket that is begged to be colored and blinged up a little...

Here's a close up view of the sparkle the image has because after coloring it with Copic markers, I highlighted the image with some Sakura Glitter pens and Crystal Lacquer...

Isn't that fun? I used Basic Grey's Lime Rickey patterned papers - which Gina will be adding to her online store later tonight. She has included some of these fun papers in her new StampTV Eclectic Summer kit too! The cardbase is her new In the Navy cardstock... I LOVE it!

Next up is another card showing off another few images from the Lazy Days of Summer stamp set along with another new GinaK stamp set called Ribbon Stripes. The sentiments are from Nina's new Special Father stamp set...

I stamped the little stars from the Ribbon Stripes set on a sheet of Summer Fabrics digital paper printed out an GinaK Pure Luxury 80lb. white cardstock in Red Ladybug Memento ink. Then, using my dauber and the Antique Linen Distress ink, I shabbied it up.

The stars (from the Lazy Days of Summer) were stamped in the same red ink and punched out with the Blue and Yellow Marvy star punches. Then, I shaded them with the distress ink too. For an even more home-made feel, I took my Rich Cocoa Memento marker and traced along the outer edge of the star and added a few dots and stitch marks here and there all around the stars.

The red cardstock is Gina's gorgeous new Rocket Red paper and I paired it with her Chocolate Kiss cardstock - I love this color scheme!

Here's the links to everyone who is showing off projects with these two stamp sets this morning...


Have a great rest of your day and enjoy all the eyecandy this morning!
