As I was doing my post-Christmas cleaning, I came across a box in the upstairs bedroom that had 8 sets of Gina K. stamps that had NEVER made it down to my stamping room. And that order was from last Spring. So I hereby announce that I will (try) not to buy any new stamps until I ink up all the stamps I already own.
I couldn't believe that I had forgotten all about that order. I decided to ink up Gina K's "A Beautiful Life" illustrated by Melanie Muenchinger. All the images were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on watercolor paper and colored with Twinkling H2O's.
I apologize for the glare on the pictures. I tried taking the pictures with the flash on, then off, but they all came out the same. Believe me when I say the tulips on the top are the exact same colors as the ones on the bottom, but the glare made them look different.
On all the cards, I stamped extra butterflies that I cut out and superimposed with foam tape over the butterflies that were stamped on the original frame.
These first cards all use the sympathy phrase that is included in the set.
On this one, I only used one butterfly and added Sticko Dimensional stickers to balance the image.
On this one, I used pearls from Queen & Company.
These next cards use a wedding phrase from the set.
