Gina K Designs September Release Hop Day 3


Welcome back to Day 3 of the Gina K Designs September Release Blog Hop! We are focusing on the sets from the Fruit of the Season Stamp TV kit and I can't wait to share what I created!! 

For my first card, I created a Bokeh background. I have a video showing how I created this which you can down below or HERE on my Youtube channel. 


I ink blended Mermaid Lagoon, Lucky Clover and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide onto a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock.


Then, using a jumbo sponge dauber and finger dauber I applied white pigment ink to the background using a twisting motion. 



I copic colored the pears and used the coordinating to die cut them out and attach to my card panel. These are real easy to create but have a beautiful effect! 

***SUPPLIES WILL BE LISTED AT THE END OF THE POST***

For my next card, I used the gorgeous snowflakes stamp set and the snowflakes background stamp set.

On a piece of black cardstock, I heat embossed the snowflakes background stamp with Silver Embossing Powder.


I also heat embossed a snowflake from the Snowflake stamp set with gold embossing powder and die cut with the coordinating die. 

My sentiment is stamped in black ink on a strip of white cardstock and I continued to layer my strips on the card front. 


You can never have enough snowflake stamps, right!? Each one is so unique and beautiful!
