Summer Harvest Card Kit

Welcome to day 4 of the Blast from the Past GinaK blog hop event!

Tonight, while the other designers are sharing favorite stamp sets from Asela and Carolyn, I'm sharing another class kit that I designed for GinaK's Summer Harvest stamp set.  I love the bright and cheerful colors of this kit and hope you do too!

Summer Harvest Class Kit Contents:
  • GinaK Cardstock - heavy white, black onyx, dandelion yellow, green apple, and red hot
  • Silver eyelets
  • 1 yard satin red polka dot ribbon
  • Printed instruction sheet with measurements and details for each project shown in the photo above
Let's look a bit closer at each card in the class kit ...

This first card's sentiment can easily be swapped out for a different one from the stamp set.  I know I usually need more birthday cards than any other occasion, so I like to 'defer' to that sentiment when I'm making cards.

Card Details
Stamps: Summer Harvest (GKD)
Ink: Black Memento
Cardstock: Red hot, black, dandelion yellow, green apple, white
Other: Seeing spots & candy cane cuttlebug embossing folder, silver eyelets, 1/4" hole punch & eyelet setter, copic markers, scallop border punch, paper piercer & template, sakura glitter pen, crystal lacquer, 1/4" score tape; black polka dot satin ribbon
**********

Each focal image in this class kit has been stamped on scrap white cardstock, colored with copic markers, highlighted with a glitter pen, and then cut out and popped up on the card front. After the card/s were completed, I put a layer of crystal lacquer over the entire image and then set it aside to dry overnight.  You want to make sure to save this embellishment for last as it takes quite awhile for the lacquer to dry.  I just love the shine and pop that the glossy dried lacquer gives to these images - they look like epoxy stickers that are all the rage right now!

This is one of my favorite layouts of the bunch - I have to remember this one for future cards!  To get that nice glow to the tomato image, be sure to use a yellow, orange, and red for your shading with your copic markers or colored pencils.  It's surprising how much of a difference that yellow can add to your shading.

Stamps: Summer Harvest (GKD)
Ink: Black Memento
Cardstock: GinaK - green apple, white, red hot, white, dandelion yellow
Other: seeing spots cuttlebug embossing folder, copic markers, crystal lacquer, sakura glitter pen, silver eyelets, 1/4" hole punch & eyelet setter; corner rounder

*********

This is the one card that doesn't have the focal image popped up.  Once again, the sentiment can easily be swapped out for the sentiment of your choice as there is plenty of room on the white panel.  The ribbon treatment was done with a strip of 1/4" scor-tape and then adding the ribbon by tucking it (or 'ruffling' it under itself as shown below).  Love this look - as I'm sure you can tell from my latest few class kit samples!

***********

The last project is a little gift card/tag that can be added to a gift bag or tucked inside a gift box.  I tied the extra ribbon to the top of it to show how easy it could be to loop the ribbon around the gift bag handles.  You can see that I used the sketch from the tomato card above for this little mini card ...

The entire GinaK Designs team would like to invite you to the virtual Release party we'll be having tomorrow, Thursday, August 5th on StampTV.  It will be a bit different than our usual release party, but we'll still have challenges, contest questions, and designer samples that you won't want to miss out on!  I will be hostessing the sketch challenge and hope you'll be able to play along with me!

Tomorrow night is the last night of the hop!  I'll be sharing my last new class kit which will be the one that's free with the purchase during the next few weeks until August 26th new stamp release!

See you then!
