GinaK Previews First Christmas and Vintage Borders

Welcome to the second day of GinaK Designs previews. Today, we will be showing Asela Hopkins' First Christmas set and my new Vintage Borders set.

For the first card, I stamped the musical score stamp from Vintage Borders with Vivid Olive on Soft Sand CS. I stamped the cardinal image from the First Christmas set directly on the card front. The pine needles were colored with Memento Cottage Ivy, the bird with Copic. Other supplies used are a button from the Holiday Button Assortment and the red organdy sheer ribbon. I scored a few lines on the bottom for added effect. You can click on the images for a larger view.

This next uses the cute bear from the set. I colored it with Copics and mounted with foam tape on this girly Christmas card.

The next cards feature my new set, Vintage Borders, which has 10 images: 1 sentiment, 1 verse and 8 border images that you can stamp side by side to create longer borders. Five of the border images are not specific for Christmas, so you can use this set all year as well. These border stamps are also great to make your own backgrounds, as seen in the first card and below.

This is a clean and simple card with a fun, eclectic background that's easily mass produced.

The monochromatic cards below are also easily mass produced. The ornaments were stamped three times to create the longer border, then colored with different shades of the same color Copic markers. The "peace" sentiment is my own handwriting and is one of the stamps in Vintage Borders. The scallop border is also from this set (you saw this from yesterday's post).

This one uses Green Apple and Fresh Asparagus.

This uses Cranberry Tart and Stampin' Up's Pink Pirouette.

Finally, this one uses In The Navy and SU's Bashful Blue.


Make sure you stop by Asela's blog, then continue with the hop. The Center Stage Spotlight Designers joining tonight: Deb Felts, Sharri Seffens, Melissa Cash. Finally, stop by these GinaK Designers' blog for even more projects with tonight's stamp sets: Gina Krupksy, Carolyn King, Cathy Tidwell, Cindy Lawrence, Donna Baker, Erika Martin, Emily Giovanni, Jessica Fick, Kurtis Amundson, Lee Murphy, Lynn Mercurio, Melanie Muenchinger, Tami Mayberry, Theresa Momber
