Journey of the Heart StampTV Kit from Gina K. Designs





 Good morning!   The Cast and Crew for Gina K Designs welcomes you to another fabulous Inspiration Blog Hop! Gina and Cast and Crew will inspire you with many beautiful ideas for the newest StampTV kit Journey of the Heart !  As you hop through their blogs, make sure to leave a comment on each of them because we will choose a few random comments and those stampers will each win a grab bag of Gina K. Designs products. To see the full list of winners check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hops.


One of the mini stamp sets included in this kit has some bold lovely florals, perfect for the direct to stamp technique, so get out your markers!  Although the kit comes with an assortment of coordinating patterned papers, I thought it would be fun to make my own with the stamps for this card (colors listed below in the supplies section).  These florals also work perfectly with my little vase stamp from my set Buds and Vases, so I stamped the flowers first, inked up the vase with a blue marker, omitting the top back edge of the vase so it wouldn't cut through the stems in the image, and then stamped.  I added just a few shadows and some water with Copics.  Isn't that fun?  You can also add these to the jar in that set or use the larger flower and leaves I stamped for the background with my flower pot, I think I'll try one of those next!  Let me know in the comment section below if you would like me to do a video on coloring clear glass and  adding water, this one was very simple.

Supplies used: StampTV Kit Journey of the Heart , Buds and Vases
Pure Luxury Blue Raspberry, Blue Denim, Cherry Red, Grass Green, and White cardstock
Memento Rhubarb Stalk, Blue Danube, Bahama Blue, Cantaloupe, Olive Grove, and Bamboo Leaves markers, Copics- BG10, B1, Pure Luxury Ribbon, Pop Dots, Tombo Mono Multi, brads
