First Date

This is the card I made for the STAMPTV CHALLENGE (I am hosting this week). The challenge is "First Date" - use something in your stash for the FIRST time!


Have you ever watched a video and saw a cool technique and you just had to buy the supply...then forget why you bought it? I sure have! I have a set of Portfolio Oil Pastels that I haven't used for at least 6 months. I don't recall what I wanted to do with them but this week I found a cool technique to try. Basically I used yellow, green and orange on white cardstock. I then covered it all with red. I placed a stencil over it and removed the red with a wipey.

Here is my card


Gina K Flower Builder stamp set
Pattern Paper Delicate Essentials

Version 2

Here are the images of the steps. I randomly co;ored yellow, green and orange. I covered it all in the opposite direction with red (not a heavy coat). Using a star burst stencil, I layed it over the piece. I used a wipey to remove the red in the stencil openings.

Mix It Up

This week at the Modsquad Challenge we were to use 2 or more stamps from different sets. It is a PRIZE week, and Melanie Muenchinger from Hands, Head and Heart is giving away 5 Gina K Design Duo sets.

This is the card I made.
I filled in the frame borders with strips of glitter paper from DCWF and added printed glitter strips to the main areas.



The frame and flower is from "Triple Play" Gina K Designs
Sentimet is "Mosaic" Gina K Designs
Butterfly is from "Whimsical Spring" Gina K Designs
Ink is Gina K Chocolate Brown. 

The sets I used are currently out of stock but will be in stock very soon! I will link to the store so you can come back if you want to order but be sure to browse Melanies's site. At Hands. Head and Heart. She has some great videos!
