Gina K Double Take Blog Hop


I’m so glad you’ve joined us in a Double Take hop! Members of Gina K.'s Design Team have come together to host a hop where we will show you how to make cards using the same products and stamp images to create two different cards.  In my case, they are still similar but more on that below.

If you came from Giovana’s blog, you're at the right place. If not make sure to head over to StampTV where you will find a list of all those participating in today's hop.

double take

What I love about challenges, is that they encourage you to think outside the box and because different people participate, you end up having different styles and interpretations!  Now, with my cards, I did use the same supplies as you will see in this photo, and although my layout is very much the same, you’ll see I did change up how I did the focal image.

I used white, red hot and black onyx pure luxury cardstock; Various Verses stamp set with just one greeting; a classic oval nestability die; black gingham ribbon; memento tuxedo black ink; a red, green & sand colored (not pictured) by SU!; an old marker air tool (SU!); micron black pen; silver brads; fiskars open scallop border punch.

IMG_3071On the card on the right, I ran the die through my cuttlebug machine, making the outline of the die, then I traced the outlines with 2 of my markers.  Then, I cut an oval from a scrap piece of cardstock so I could airbrush the inside of the focal image without getting any on the outside. 

IMG_3072 On the other card, I just traced the die with markers for definition, and used the die and inside of what I just cut out, to cover the focal image to airbrush the outside!  On my card on the left, I added some black pen highlights to under the flowers, I love the depth that creates.  I really like these cards – they were super easy & fun to make!  Hope you will try this trick too and share with me what you make! 

Head on over to Cat’s blog to see what she's sharing with you today!
