New Stamps!


I am so happy I got some extra time to sit and play with my new Gina K. Design stamps.  The set I am using is called Follow Your Dreams, by Theresa Momber.  Since I live on a lake, I am lucky enough to  have a Great Blue Heron that visits every day to catch his dinner.  I created this card using scraps of papers from my stash, layered on a white card base.  Coloring was done with Copics.  The numbers I used were: C1, C3, C7, W1, B0000, B21, E25, Y19, YG93.  I added some grey, ribbed velvet ribbon and taupe leaves from Prima.  I topped it off with an antique pearl button threaded with floss.

My second card is using stamps from the same set, but this time I used the dragonflies and sentiment.  I framed out my sentiment with my new Decorative Oval Window die from Heartfelt Creations, and added Prima's with olive pearl centers.  Stickles were added to the dragonflies for sparkle, and a small Tag To Go, from K&Co was tucked into the flowers.

Hard to believe that is is almost hump day already.  Time is zooming.  Have a beautiful Spring day!

I love your cards and I love this set. Oh to have a heron out my window, they fly over our house in TX, not sure, since we don't have much water. What patience you have to cut out those dragonflies, but what a stunning card. Gorgeous!
