Welcome back to another sneak peak at sets from this month's release with Gina K. Designs!
Today... no coloring (GASP) and something completely foreign to me... DISTRESSED!!! Since I'm typically into cute and whimsical, the stamp sets I picked to work with today were a complete challenge for me... and I'm always up for a challenge!
My fist card sample is made with Nina Brackett's set called Christ Is Risen. I so love the almost-tattoo style of images in this set! And the winged cross image is HUGE! I stamped it on white Pure Luxury paper and colored with Copics (okay... so I guess I did color a tiny bit... but nothing fancy).
I then cut out the small die and stamped LOVE in black. I used patterned paper from Glitz Girls Hey Dude paper pad and distressed the whole darn thing with a distress tool and tea dye and walnut stain distress inks.
I decided to stick with the whole distressing style for the second card. I stamped images from Tami Mayberry's Live Life Loud set with Red Pepper Ink. I layered the dotted background, the drum set and the sentiment. I used papers from the same patterned paper pad and brought in a tiny bit of grungy bling with some old metal flourish shapes (I'm not even sure where I got them... they were just sitting in my stash and were the perfect touch for this card.) I made a few swipes over them with my Toner Gray marker to dirty them up a bit. LOL
Both sets have SO many uses - from holiday to birthday to anniversary to party to congratulations... I just love the versatility of them!
