But first, I want to let you all know that I have stepped down from the Gina K design team. Last month was my last "official" month on the team. This decision was very tough for me and I assure you it was for one reason ONLY -----> to lessen my mandatory work load at this time. My baby starts kindergarten in the fall and I really want to cherish these last few months of having a little one home. Gina is absolutely amazing and I have no doubt that we will still be working together a lot! I am so grateful for her friendship and I will still be around peeking some sets here and there (like today!) and posting lots of Gina K goodness on my blog. Thank you, Gina! LOVE you lots!
Now...onto the stampy stuff! Here are two creations I made with Oh Boy! The first is a nursery wall decor piece. I love all the transportation images in this set and think it would be so cute to put each one in a frame for a collection of wall art. I created one with the sailboat:
I painted the wood frame with some white paint. Then, I created the scene with lots of paper piecing----I paper pieced the sailboat with some paper and did the same with the clouds and sun. I layered the sail and sun for some dimension. I popped up a few layers and added some (wonky) stitching and a little button.
You can see some of the dimension/detail in this picture:
Materials used: Stamps- Oh Boy! (Gina K Designs); white cardstock (Gina K Designs); Copic markers; Memento tuxedo black ink; ribbon (SU!); designer paper- Joy Ride (Cosmo Cricket); Ready Set Chip-JoyRide (Cosmo Cricket); black pen.
