More GinaK Cards

Wow!!! You have all been so kind with all of your comments!!! I have the "warm fuzzies!!!"

I will make a confession to all of you is only "occasionally" when I see some images and immediately know what I want to do with them. Other times I sit and pour over a single card for "hours" Ughhh it can get very frustrating and I hope I am not the only one who suffers from this syndrome.

When I look at Gina's stamps ideas just start popping into my head. I really need to get more of her sentiments though....that is next on my "to purchase" list!

I have 2 more GinaK cards to share with you today.

For this first card I used Gina's Sandcastle stamp (UM) and stamped it with Timber Brown Palette ink; colored it with Prisma pencils and Gamsol; For the "faux" sand I used my Versamarker pen at the bottom of the castle then added Ranger's Distressed EP in Antique turned out a little darker than I wanted but the effect is there. I used Stickles to accent the castle and the button in the center of the ribbon knot. The sentiment is Gina's as well, and was punched using SU's Word Window Punch. I used 7/8" White Organdy ribbon and tied some silver cording through the button and secured it to the ribbon knot with a glue dot. Card base is Apricot Appeal from SU and the background is DCWV's Glitter Stack. The accent colors are from Bazzil and I have no idea what the names of the colors are.

This next card I just got finished making.

I used Gina's Chicken Dance (UM) stamp, inked it with Palette Noir and stamped it onto a scrap of Natural Ivory CS. I used re-inkers and a waterbrush to color her in. I then punched 2 Giga Scalloped Squares from Certainly Celery, cut a chunk off of each, and pieced it together to form the perfect border for the Chicken. The base of the card is SU's Certainly Celery and the background CS is "beautiful" stripe from Wild Asparagus. The center strip is "birthday" paisley also from Wild Asparagus and is mounted onto a strip of Marigold Morning from SU trimmed with my Fiskars "Cloud" scissors. I tied a 3/8" Cinnamon organdy ribbon from Offray.

Well I hope you enjoy todays creations, I had a lot of fun making them.
