Lovely Shelf Hop with GKD


brown & white lovely friend

Tonight the GKD designers & CSS have samples to share with you using the new Lovely Shelf set illustrated by Nina Brackett. 

I used some of Nina’s Bug me Anytime digital papers because I thought they went real lovely with the new set!  I used chocolate kiss cardstock as well.  The Nestabilities I used for the focal image are Labels 4 and I colored with prismacolor pencils, blended with odorless mineral spirits.

pink & grey lovely shelf

For my next card I used the lovely orchid image and placed it on the shelf image in the set with a handkerchief underneath it.  The digital papers I used on this card are by Emily, Softly Spring.  I used copic markers to color this image and used my Sakura glitter pen for sparkly accents.

Love the 'negative' effect you added to the top beauty! And the pink orchid card is wonderful ... it has a 'gentle' feeling about it!

Wow! These are both so beautiful! Each so stunning in its own way! The contrast of the first is so striking, and the softness of the embossing and the muted colors make the second a feminine favorite!
