The Journey



This is day three of the Gina K Design June Release. Two more new sets are being previewed so I know you will want to check them all out. I am very excited to be a part of the Center Stage Spotlight Design team this month. The set I am previewing is "The Journey" by Asela Hopkins. She always designs such fabulous sets. This set has a total of 12 coordinating images and greetings. I couldn't decide which card to preview, so I am previewing two today.

My first card uses two of the images from this set. The door was stamped, using black Memento ink on Gina's Pure Luxury White card stock. I used Copic markers and chalk to color. Label Four Nestabilities was used to cut a frame in a piece of Sage Shadow cardstock. The verse, which is part of this set, was stamped in black at the top. The children were stamped and colored with Copic Markers then cut out. The grass from this set was stamped on the bottom below the frame. The frame is on dimensionals and placed over the door. The children were place on the outside to appear approaching the friends house. A piece of Basic Grey designer paper was placed on the left side of the card then a piece of paper lace used along the side of the frame. To finish the card, flowers were added as well as some pearls. Now, for the next card.





My second card is also from this set. The chair and verse were embossed with Detail White embossing powder, which is available from Gina. Baja Breeze and white card stock were used for the frames cut with Petite Oval Nestabilities.The flower is also from Gina K Designs and was colored with reinkers. Small rhinestones were added for a little bling.

Don't miss the rest of the previews by Gina and the other Design Team members. Pam Imholz, another Center Stage Spotlight Designer, is also previewing a beautiful set. Be sure to visit each of the following blogs.

Selma,

Well, just when I thought there is no way Selma can make another card to improve upon any of her previous ones, outcomes "The Journey" Wow, you just knocked me off of my KEESTER. This card is just precious, and the verse says so much. Wonderful, fantastic, awesome job.....
