May Guest Designer for Nina Brackett

Hi everyone!  I have fun news!  You may have caught from my Embellish Magazine blog hop post yesterday, that I was asked by Nina Brackett to be her May Guest Designer!  She released 2 wonderful stamp sets for Gina K Designs, Fine Furnishings and Fine Furnishings Additions.  Here they are!

I have a couple cards to share with you using these sets.

This first card uses the chair, side table and flower vase from Fine Furnishings.  I also made this for the Limelight Papercrafts challenge, which is a sketch challenge that you were to use "fuzz" on.  My fuzz comes from the felt flower which I used as a "pillow" for the chair!

I stamped the chair, table and vase on white and cut them out and popped them up.  See how the vase is colored?  I used my Stampin' Up markers to color the stamp.  I haven't done that technique in awhile, but that is one advantage when using red rubber!  The de-lightful paper is from Cosmo's new paper, DeLovely

This next card uses a sentiment from Fine Furnishings Additions.  I love the wide arrange of sentiments in this set.  Perfect for many occasions!  The sketch is from last week's FTL91 sketch.  I used the amazing Basic Grey Capella papers.  Sigh, so soft and delicate.  I pleated the white wrinkled ribbon on a strip of Score-tape.  I stamped the sentiment on one end of a Labels Eight nestie, sponged the edges and added some Latte Kaiser pearls.  The flower dies are from PTI with a small white sweet blossom from Zva Creative.
My last card uses the amazing chandelier image from Fine Furnishings.  Notice this image comes in 2 sizes in the stamp set?  Perfect scale for many designs.  I stamped the image in black and added some red and clear rhinestones to is.  The paper is from Pink Paislee, Bayberry Cottage -love the rich colors and patterns in this line -perfect for the regal chandelier image!  Again I used some wrinkled ribbon, this time I used 2 pieces and tied them together.  I used another white Sweet Blossom from Zva to set off the bow.

Thank you so much for stopping by and be sure to check out all the amazing sets released by Gina K Designs last night!!
