The Design Team for Gina K. Designs welcomes you to a fun Take Flight blog hop. For this hop we will showcase the Petals & Wings StampTV Kit with the central theme being "Take Flight". The DT Members have all used a wide variety of Gina K.

If you came from Emily's blog, then you're right where you should be. If not, please go to Stamp TV  where you will find a list of all those participating.

Here are the cards I created for today's hop, I just couldn't make only 1 :)

Take flight

Directions:
  • Make card base using Circle Dies in White Cardstock.
  • Die-cut and emboss a piece of Innocent Pink Cardstock using Scallop Circles Dies.
  • Die-cut and emboss a piece of Patterned Paper "Petals & Wings Collection" using Circle Nestabilities Dies. TIP: The embossing line helps a lot if you decide to add stitches :)
  • Add a stripe piece of Patterned Paper onto your Circle piece, add zig-zag stitches. Adhere this panel to card base.
  • Stamp sentiment in Black Soot Distress Ink. Add twine and make a bow.
  • Stamp image on a piece of White Cardstock in Memento Tuxedo Black. Color image with Copic Markers and cut it out.
  • Adhere image to circle piece with pop dots.
  • Cover birds with Star Dust Stickles, let them dry and then add Crystal Lacquer on top. Set to dry.
  • Add pearls



------------------------------------

Thanks for being there. I usually don't create whimsical cards, I pretty much like to create things very close to real one, but with this card I decided to play with colors and textures. I really like this :)

Directions:
  • Make card base from Ocean Mist cardstock. 5" square.
  • Cut a panel from Lemon Drop Cardstock: 4.25" square. Mat this with a piece of Patterned Paper "Petals & Wings Collection" : 4" square, add zig-zag stitches. Add a piece of Textured Pink Scalloped Cardstock, add zig-zag stitches.
  • Stamp images on White Cardstock in Memento Tuxedo Black, color them with Copic markers and cut them out.
  • Stamp banner from "Perfect Pennants Set" on White Cardstock in Victorian Velvet Distress Ink and sentiment in Black Soot Distress Ink. Cut it out. Adhere it to card.
  • Die-cut clouds, ink all edges and adhere them to card with pop dots.
  • Adhere image to card. Add birds with Pop dots.
  • Cover clouds and heart from image with Crystal Lacquer. Cover small die-cut clouds with Star Dust Stickles.
  • Add Stickles to birds as well.
  • Add Liquid pearls to Scallop border.
