Just thought I'd let you know that there's a blog hop happening tomorrow and Tuesday to celebrate the new Painted Autumn kit from Gina K designs - have you seen it? The DT opened the bidding at the party last Thursday night over at Stamp TV. This is one of the cards I showed at the party, I will have plenty more to show you tomorrow and Tue, so get some chocolate and coffee ready and call by then for some fabulous fall inspiration!
This card features the bear from the Give Thanks set, I die cut him first with the enclosed die and then I trimmed around his arms and had him hang over the sentiment panel. Behind him, I stamped up his very own pumkin patch. The red paper is from the kit also, as is the brown cardstock. I mahe a matting layer using cream cardstock and just coloured the edges of it with the same copics that I used on the pumkins, so that it would match the yellow/orange tones. Simple pimple! Hope you likey!
Here's the full reveal of the kit, there are two super stamp sets, a pack of lovely autumnal papers, 24 gorgeous colours of cardstock (The color palette includes Red Velvet, Honey Mustard, Ocean Mist, Fresh
Asparagus, Sweet Corn, Dark Chocolate along with Ivory accents), cutting dies for the Give thanks set (set with the critters), binder sheet, storage box and there will be weeks and weeks of videos to accompany this kit, so you will not be short of inspiration this autumn!
Just a quick head's up - the Gina K New Kit - Painted Autumn is being released tonight, in fact the party starts in less than an hour - are you going? It's just a click away right here - there will be a full kit reveal, contests and lots of inspiration in the party threads at the Stamp TV forum - come on over!
It's pretty warm here in the old N of I today, and so I was feeling a little tropical this morning. Only had time for a quick card - a little smooshing of inks in the background and then a nice crisp silhouette of a palm tree. (Gina K Dark Chocolate Ink)
For some reason I thought this would look neat with a little melted gold on the edges of the brown cardstock panels, jury is still out, but I'm running with it anyhow... love the pinks and oranges though...
Made this with the My Island stamp set, just released over at Gina K's - check it out by clicking on the stamp set image, it's perfect for a little high summer sizzle!
So a few weeks ago the old blog was a bit vacant - I had run away to County Kerry for the fortnight (took the family of course...), it's my very favourite place. I took over 1500 pictures and my people are bored rigid looking at them, but I thought maybe you might like to see a few snaps, some of these days I'm going to buy a big fancy camera, one with all the bells and whistles.
This is Blackwater Pier, just outside Kenmare.
There's an awful lot of these in Kerry, think this one is just outside Glengarriff.
May have called into a few of these... has to be done.
Saw literally billions of these...
Found this shop in Cork City - my new favourite craft store, pity it's a 5 hour drive away...
Afternoon folks! I have a link right here for you if you wished to have the cut file .svg format for the nursery blocks that I made for the Gina K Designs release of the Bella Elephant stamp set. You can get the cut files by following this link, where you should be able to download them from my drop box! Enjoy!
Hi, I’m Claire Brennan and I'm a stamp designer. I had 6 great years running Waltzingmouse Stamps here in Northern Ireland. Running the company wasn't leaving me much time to do anything other than admin tasks though, so I took the decision to close WMS and I am thrilled to have been added to the Gina K family as an illustrator and DT member. I am currently designing new stamps for Gina as well as prepping some of the popular WMS sets for re-release with Gina - it doesn't get any better! Some of my older posts will feature links to the WMS store, which no longer exists, but if you have a question, just leave a comment and I will reply to your comment here on the blog. Thanks for stopping by, sure hope you see something different here!
