Sweet Treats & Outdoor Fun!


Good morning!

The previews for GinaK Designs' June Release have begun! My first couple of cards are showcasing Rupa's new stamp set called 100% Sweet. The set is filled with sweet images that are so much fun to color and embellish! See what I mean...

I colored the images with Copic markers and popped up the cone and the icing to make them a little more 3Dimensional. The icecream and frosting have a layer of Crystal Lacquer on them.

Here's the inside - I love the sentiments that come in this stamp set...

Isn't that fun!?

Next up is more of that adorable icecream cone - this time enough to share with friends...

And, a close up of the cones so you can see the stickles, StarDust Glitter Pen, and Crystal Lacquer added to the icecream...

And the inside..

I made the 'medallion' by using a 1" circle punch for the sentiment and layered it with a 1 1/8" circle punchout. Then, I popped up the circle and layered it on the Marvy 1 1/2" scallop circle punch (the yellow one).

The second stamp set we are showing off today, is Theresa's newest stamp set called Happy Camper. It has gorgeous outdoor images that Theresa drew herself! She is such an amazing artist!

I stamped these images on Gina's new Pure Luxury cardstock she is adding this month called Soft Sand. It is the perfect neutral! Gina showcased the cardstock and the copper nailheads that I used here on this card on her blog yesterday, so be sure to check that post for lots of fun things she is adding to her store this month if you missed it.

After stamping the images in Black Memento ink, I colored everything in with Koh-i-noor pencils and shaded with Odorless Mineral Spirits and my blending stumps. The OMS seemed to fade the black ink (I probably should have used Stazon) so I ended up going over all the stamp lines with a fine point black pen to sharpen the images up a little bit.

I used Stampin Up's River Rock and True Thyme Inks and my sponge daubers to shade the edges of the focal point.

And the inside view...
