Illustrator Hop and Invite to Tonight's Party

Welcome to our Illustrator Hop,  giving you a peek at our newest sets releasing tonight at Gina K. Designs/ StampTV at 7PM CST!  So come hop along with us and don't forget to add a comment on each blog.  We will pick a random winner to win an awesome grab bag of Gina K. Design Goodies!!
I am so excited about my new set Fabulous Frame, and even more excited how excited you all seem to be about the sneak peek of this set and my video, I can feel the love!  Thanks so much!  If you have not yet seen the first video, it really speaks for itself how versatile and easy it will be to make over the top amazing cards with this set. 
 
  Just one sample this morning, because I want to share some things for the party. ;) I used the reverse masks I showed in my video to stamp the different butterflies in Sweet Mango to the top and bottom areas, and then sponged over Gina K. Red Hot and Sweet Mango inks to create an ombre effect.  Didn't that pattern turn out pretty?  I also stamped the large butterfly into the masked areas of the belly band behind the oval, doesn't that look like lace peeking out?  (If you've watched my video on creating faux lace borders with butterflies, these butterflies will be perfect for that technique.  (Smaller and different proportions, but still have the intricate detail and scalloped shape)
 
Finally, if you get the Studio cut file, it's easy to have a ton of cut butterflies on hand to add just one or a whole fluttering swarm to your cards.  It will be available as a free download through the weekend on our StampTV Freebies page (must be StampTV member* to download, need Studio software and cutter to run program) and will be added to our store later in regular stock, for the low price of just 99 cents, of course.

I will have a new technique and new video for you on Monday though with the while we hop with the rest of our design team!  Can't wait!  I will be posting my tip sheet for this set tomorrow!

 Now check out what's coming tonight from our other Gina K. Designs Illustrators!

Fabulous stamp set, just like your others. Thanks!

Verna Angerhofer said...

I love the bright and beautiful card you created. I got late to the party as I was gone and by that time the set of yours was sold out. So I will have to wait until it is back in stock. But having it sold out, means it is a super great set so that should make you feel extra good.
