Today the design team is previewing Theresa's new set called Happy Camper and Rupa's new set called 100% Sweet.
Here is a masculine card I created for the fisherman in your life....
All images are from Happy Camper. I used the new Soft Sand Pure Luxury cardstock and stamped the background on it in Memento ink. I stamped and colored the images (and clear embossed the sign) before adhering them to the scene with dimensional tape.
The clouds are freehand cut from watercolor paper (because I liked the texture) and I sponged around the edges to get some depth.
I used some of the new self-adhesive nail heads that Gina will be carrying in the store on the top tabs. Finally, I added some faux stitching around the edges.
Materials used: Stamps-Happy Camper (Gina K Designs); Memento tuxedo black ink; Ranger distress tea dye ink; soft sky ink (SU!); Copic markers; Gina K Pure Luxury cardstock-white, soft sand; watercolor paper; clear embossing powder; heat tool; versamark; paper piercing tool; brown marker; oval punch (SU!); adhesive nail heads (Gina K Designs); mounting tape; hemp.
Next, I created a mini cupcake/muffin holder and used the images from 100% Sweet to decorate the box:
I created this template so that you could see out of the front of the box and into the top of the box....that whole section is lined with acetate (so it doesn't photograph well, sorry!)
I added the little cupcake and candies to the front of the box and then created a little toothpick that goes into the cupcake/muffin with a sentiment from the set.
There are tons of images in this set---and I think all the little candies would also look adorable stamped for a background. (Hmm....will have to work on that one!)
Materials used: Stamps-100% Sweet (Gina K Designs); Memento black ink; Copic markers; designer paper-American Crafts ; Gina K white pure luxury cardstock; ribbon (SU!); Fiskars Threading Water punch; Scor-Pal; acetate; Spellbinders long scalloped rectangles; Cuttlebug (Provocraft). (Additional--cupcake/muffin, toothpick).
