Farewell to April at Diecut Divas

Well it is the end of the month again. I have really enjoyed showcasing Gina K Designs products for you; as it was her videos that gave me my original light bulb moment with regards to the cards I wanted to make. I was so inspired by Melanie Muenchinger's twisted triple panel stamping technique video that I knew I had to give it try with my own interpretation. Here is my project.

My addition was adding a velum stamped butterfly to the focal image to make it pop and they are coloured with glitter pens which in real life makes them glitter and shine all over.

A Set of Cards for Diecut Divas

Well my son's kindy was having a fundraising market so I decided to create a set of cards for them to either sell or put in a raffle prize. With Gina K Designs products it was so easy. This is what I came up with:

Card Tip:
The easiest way to create multiple cards is to choose a simple layout that can be repeated easily and change the colour and / or sentiment for each one to add interest. I also added white envelopes to fit and re-used some stamp packaging for a small clear plastic box to place them in.

Card Ingredients:
Card Stock: Gina K Designs card stock in black onxl, sweet mango, innocent pink, lipstick, cherry red.
Stamps: Gina K Designs frame and flowers clear 1, a year of flowers 2, fabulous frame filler clear, whimsical wishes.
Ink: Carnations stamped in Memento ink in tuxedo black, cocoa brown, london fog, sentiments all stamped in Versafine black onyx ink and embossed with clear embossing powder.
               Outline: C3 
               Flower: YR02+YR04, R22+R24,R81+R83,R35+R37
