 Dear Ones~
It's my turn to once again host over at the Mod Squad Challenge. This time I have chosen to keep it clean and simple. The challenge is to use just one focal image on the card. No other embellishments (other than the white gel pen dots I used).


                                             SHOP GINA K DESIGNS

Gina K. has been in the stamping industry since 1998 and started Gina K. Designs in 2007. As the business grew, Gina asked her husband Tom to leave his position as an attorney to join her in the business. Together they built StampTV, an online video website featuring broadcast quality paper crafting videos, galleries, a social network for paper crafters and more! Since then they have created a new website called Gina K Designs. Gina now has over 200,000 followers over her various social media networks and video sites from all around the world. Gina’s goal is to continue to offer top quality signature products through her online store Gina K. Designs, along with informative and creative crafting videos. There is also a monthly card challenge, where you have 3 chances to win a $25 gift certificate. Visit that HERE.


A $20 gift certificate to the Gina K Designs store.

 Here is my sample:

I began by stamping the image from the GKD Sweet Spring Stamp Set on GKD Kraft Card Stock and heat embossing it with GKD Fine Detail White Embossing Powder. Then I colored the image using Prismacolor Pencils. The two panels were cut from the GKD Master Layouts 1 Die Set with GKD Kraft and Wild Dandelion Card Stock. The greeting was stamped with the GKD Skeleton Leaves Stamp Set and cut with a banner die from the GKD Master Layouts 3 Die Set. It was then glued with GKD Connect Glue to a piece of Wild Dandelion Card Stock and fussy cut for a small border. I used a white gel pen for the white dots. 

 Thanks for stopping by, I always enjoy your comments. And don't forget to swing on over to The Mod Squad Challenge and play along. You could win the prize.

Until next time, here's celebrating your Creative Muse.
