Today the Gina K Design team are sharing projects created with these new releases: Hello Sunshine StampTV kit, Birthday Greetings and the New One Free with 3- Life's a Beach.
I used the pre-cut Rubber sets for my samples but Gina K IS NOW OFFERING you a choice of Deeply Etched Rubber or Clear for the stamp sets!
Just like most of you---I am positively swamped this time of the year. My card making time is literally an hour or two a week. We are running from one sport to another, to ballet, to graduations, birthday parties, etc. But....I have a real NEED for cards during this time of year. So, when I saw the new Stamp TV kit- Hello Sunshine- I had an idea.
I thought that if I could make a clean and simple card that lent itself to many different occasions, I might be able to mass produce it so that I can use it for birthdays, sympathy cards, thank you notes. And that is just what I did! Here is the card I created:
Pure Luxury white cardstock. I stamped the large flower with Rose Bud Memento dew drop ink and then stamped off the image on a post it note. I layered the post it over the flower to stamp the stem in Cottage Ivy dew drop ink on an angle, as shown. Then, I took a black artist pen and drew a line across the bottom. Finally, I stamped the sentiment above the line.
I rounded the bottom two corners and added a black pearl to the center of the flower. Truly...simple.
To make this card a simple-to-make and easy-to-mail card---you can add a flat black metal dot to the center of the flower.
Here is a set of cards. Note: I left the sentiment off the ones lying down so I can add the appropriate one before mailing:
