Most of the cards I've shared this month have featured Nina Brackett's new set Elegant Post and today is Nina's Blog Hop for this set. I'm very happy to be sharing two projects with you today and they are really the last for my Centrestage Spotlight time on Stamp TV. It's been a fantastic time, I've had so much fun and am so grateful for the opportunity.
So the first project is a card -
This is one of the first cards I made with Nina's set and the idea came from a very clever card maker Donna. I couldn't wait to try her layout and this is the perfect stamp for it. It's basically three layers onto a card base. Using a double sided card with the image stamped onto one side, then just folding.
- Stamp: Elegant Post Nina Brackett for Gina K Designs
- Card: GKD Soft Sand and Black. DP is a double sided from Kaisercraft- to have and to hold. The gold is a small piece I've had a while (sorry not sure).
- Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
My second project is a gift pouch with four cards enclosed, two of each design.
The cards are very simple with the image stamped in silver and sitting on some black and silver dp. Eyelets were used at the top of these cards with a ribbon threaded through and tied in a bow to finish off.
I've used the post and the lantern from the set on the front of the pouch, stamped in silver with some light sponging. Spellbinder dies were used to cut both the ovals and Martha Stewart gems were set into each scallop.
The dp used is from Nina's coordinating digital paper which is also available from GKD. I've used the grey on the front with the red inside.
Ribbon is threaded through two silver eyelets to close the pouch.
For the inside I used the red digi paper and also stamped two more of the images from the set for the flap.
- Card: Gina K Design Black, Soft Sand and PL Heavy weight Pure white and Nina's Elegant Post digital paper 'Elegant'
- Ink: VersaColor - Silver
- Embellishments: Ribbon, Martha Stewart Gems.
Hope you like both of these it's been fun sharing them.
