All Pout No Tears? And Welcome Baby!

Welcome to Delightful Details!
I've been having a wonderful time using the Gina K Design products this month. All of the Design Team at Christian Paper Crafts are having fun creating! Just want to start by saying thank you again to Gina for being our sponsor during January 2010, it has been such a blessing! Today is my turn to share a project or two or maybe three!! I've been "sitting" on these projects for about 3 weeks and it's been so hard keeping these to myself!

Project #1

(I hope you'll click to enlarge I love this picture of Addy! My youngest granddaughter) This page is a two page layout but I don't have any GKD product on the second page so I'm not posting it. (I guess I don't have to explain but I usually journal on my pages and that is missing on this page.)

The heart stamp is from the set called How Sweet It Is! I have sprayed the white flower (Karen Foster) with Pink Taffy Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels (I was inspired by StampTV get creative and embellish my flowers!) For the flower center I used my very first Nestabilities!! (Label One) Whoo-hoo I'm stepping up in the crafting world!

I glimmer misted the pink border and if you enlarge the photo I think you'll be able to see it. That was the easy step!! I embossed the stamped heart with clear embossing on the green patterned paper and then I cut out the heart that was a bit more tedious and after cutting it out and adhering it I poured Glossy Accents from Ranger into the cut out section to give it more of a dimensional look. I apologize the pic doesn't really do it justice.

This pink scalloped paper is from Bazzill and it is heart shaped and originally white. I first embossed with clear embossing powder from Ranger, then using my blending tool I added Distress Ink (worn lipstick) for color over the entire heart scalloped cardstock.

Here's a list of ingredients not mentioned: Paper: Bazzill cardstock; Die Cuts With a View, Nana's Nursery pattern paper; White buttons are from Gina K Designs; Pink buttons and felt flowers from Making Memories; Sentiment is computer generated and I used the Waterfall font. Pink Ribbon is American Crafts.

Project #2 Baby Card Plaid (5.5 x 4.25)

Here is a list of my ingredients:
Cardstock : Gina K Designs, Pure Luxury (cream, chocolate, kraft)
Designer paper: unknown (such a cute plaid with no markings on it and I got it on vacation!)
Stamps: Gina K Designs "How Sweet It Is"
Inks: Archival Ink (coffee : image and sentiment) Distress ink (broken china blended around scallop oval and sentiment box)
Prismacolor pencils: true blue, orange, deco yellow
Ribbon: American crafts
Button: Gina K Designs

Tools: Marvy Uchida Scallop Oval punch
Technique: I paper pieced the blanket sling the stork is holding

Project #3 Baby Card Star Embossed (5.5 x 4.25)

I used basically the same layout but there are some differences. I used a circle scallop punch from Marvy Uchida and an EK Success corner rounder. The other main difference is that I used my Cuttlebug and star folder and distress inked the paper (cardstock: Gina K Designs Pure Luxury, cream-colored) with Broken China Distress Ink from Ranger. Antique Linen Distress Ink was used to blend around the circle and sentiment.

Other ingredients I used:

Design Paper: DieCuts With A View, Nana's Nursery (boy) Ribbon: American Crafts; Buttons: Gina K Design; Hemp cord: Craft jewelry; Prismacolor pencils: deco yellow, orange, sienna brown.
