Gina K. Designs DT Blog Hop: Gratitude

Welcome to another Gina K. Design Team blog hop. Today we're featuring cards with a Gratitude/Thank You theme to them. If you came from Donna's blog, you're at the right place. If not make sure to head over to StampTV where you will find a list of all those participating in today's hop.

Here's what I came up with today. For my card I used 2 sets: The basket and sunflowers are from Holiday Basket and the sentiment is from Winter Wings

Directions:
  • Make card base from Ivory CS. 5" square.
  • Ink all edges. Make a panel from Ivory CS 4.75" square. Add a strip of embossed Ivory CS. Add zig-zag and straight stitches.
  • Adhere ribbon. Add panel to card base.
  • Stamp sentiment.
  • Stamp basket and sunflowers on White CS. Color them with Copic Markers. Cut them out.
  • Die-cut, emboss and stencil a piece of Ivory CS using Label 1 Dies. Adhere piece to card with Large Pop Dots.
  • Adhere basket and sunflowers with pop dots.
  • Create a double bow with Bow-Easy and adhere it to card with glue dots.
  • Add Pearls to each corner.

Card Recipe:
  • Cardstock: White, Ivory (Gina K. Designs)
  • Stamps: Holiday Basket and Winter Wings (Gina K. Designs)
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko), Vintage Photo Distress, Old Paper Distress (Ranger).
  • Embellishments: Pearls, Salmon Satin Ribbon (LSS), Brads (SU)
  • Accessories: Label 1 Dies (Spellbinders), Distress Stripes Embossing folder (Provo-craft), Pop dots, StarDust Stickles (Ranger), Sewing machine.
