Gina K Blog Hop

Time for a new kind of HOP over here with Gina K Designs. This time the hop is open to all members of StampTV who want to play along.  We had to use one of this month's new release stamp sets - that was the only requirement. Since I just received my fabulous Festive Frames by the "Oh so talented Melanie Muenchinger", here's my card for tonight's hop:


This close up will show you more about how I did the poinsettias - I stamped and colored the entire image then I stamped the two corners again on a 2nd sheet of Pure Luxury Ivory CS and colored just the flowers and then cut those out with sharp snips and popped them up over the first layer. I added pearls to the centers of the flowers and the berries have each been dotted with Crystal Effects for that shiny glossy look. I also colored the oval "frame" (pink) and the outside of the overall frame (Green) with my copics to give the illusion of more layers.


Thanks for looking! Have fun hopping and have a GREAT WEEKEND!
Hugs n smiles...

Your card is absolutely gorgeous, Pam! Fantastic coloring! BTW, your link is not working in Mr. Linky on Gina's blog. It goes to Jessica's blog instead of yours.

Love the colors you chose. The layered poinsettias add a nice dimension. Would not have thought to use crystal effects on the berries. Thanks for that idea!
