Gina K Stenciled Frame Card
Hello to my dear Arties!! Welcome to the blog today. For Father’s Day I received a gift from my wife — a shopping trip to Gina K’s website! So I chatted with the legend herself for a bit, asking what she thought I should grab. And without hesitation, Gina recommended her stencils.
I had seen JMac use them in a recent YouTube video and thought to myself, “yes, I think I will.” So I filled my cart with all of Gina’s newest Amalgam Ink pads, as many stencils as I could find, and her beautiful new sentiment set, Have Faith.
For todays card, I created an A2-sized panel using the Art Deco Stencil. I taped it down with some Purple Tape over the cardstock and blended Cherry Red, Red Hot, and Dandelion ink up the panel. The Dandelion and Red Hot mixed create a beautiful orange color at the top of the panel.
I cut an opening in the center of the panel with Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle dies. I had to cut a bit to the left and then again to the right to make the opening wide enough for the sentiment I chose.
Then I stamped the sentiment on some white cardstock using the Chocolate Truffle Amalgam Ink.
A few months ago, Gina blessed me with the Elegant Asters Card Kit. The stamps and dies in the kit are available separately now. Woot!!! I clear heat-embossed the three sizes of asters and blended some Dandelion ink over the top. Then I die cut them out and arranged them in the opposite corners of the frame, adhering them with Gina K Connect Glue.
I trimmed off the excess flowers with my Tim Holtz Trimmer and popped the frame up over the sentiment panel with some foam tape.
To finish off the card, I added some rhinestones that Taniesa sent me from Trinity Stamps.
