Gina K Preview Day 1

Hello! Welcome to day 1 of the Gina K Designs previews!!! Today the design team is sharing projects created with Lovely Shelf and Tech Talk!

For my first card, I used Lovely Shelf and created a birthday card for my baby sister (who is celebrating her birthday today! Happy Birthday Clare!):

I stamped the greeting right onto the card base and then added the border around the flower vase using a ruler and a black artist pen. I left the word "sister" right next to the flower (it is how it comes when you get the stamp sheet) because I knew I wanted to make a birthday greeting and thought it would be a great placement of that part of the sentiment.

After coloring the flower vase with Copics, I added some stickles to the center of the flowers. The bottom part of this card features the two new pure luxury colors that will be added to the store on Thursday--Ocean Mist and Crème de Menthe. Beautiful!!! Love these colors!

Materials used: Stamps-Lovely Shelf; Memento tuxedo black ink; Copic Markers; cardstock-white, Ocean mist, Crème de Menthe (Gina K Designs); ribbon-Offray; stickles- Tiara (Ranger); slit punch (SU!); black artist pen.


Next, here is my card using Tech Talk:
This set has lots of images to create the perfect desk but I wanted to focus more on the love notes....so I paired the cute envelope with the laptop and fun greeting. Since the computer is the primary way my husband and I communicate...I thought this would be perfect.

Materials used: Stamps-Tech Talk (Gina K Designs); Memento tuxedo black ink; Copic markers; cardstock-white-Gina K Designs); designer paper-Everyday, Long Time No See (American Crafts) ; adhesive stickers (Recollections); ribbon (SU!); corner rounder punch; sewing machine.
