Borders, Frames and Flourishes Card Set

Hi Everyone!  Debbie with you today sharing a card set I created using Gina's Tulip Scroll Corners and Flourished Frames - Evie.  These pieces are so versatile...they can be altered into accents instead of the full frame. 

 For this card I used the Flourished Frames - Evie. I altered them by cutting the frames sides off and just using the top and bottom flourishes.
I simply gessoed the chipboard pieces and then painted with Ivory acrylic paint.
I allowed them to dry and then stamped over them with a script stamp and rubbed with Viva Inka in Gold. 
Here is a photo of my supplies for the cards.

Winter Tag with The Robin's Nest paper

Good morning Crafty People!
Today I have a winter tag using Gina's X-large tag for the base.
I started by covering the tag with paper from The Robin's Nest.
I then inked and painted three pine trees from the Pine Tree Shape Set. I glued the largest pine tree to the tag. The two smaller trees are elevated at two different heights.

To finish the tag, I inked a deer with brown distress ink, and added white gesso to look like snow.
Thanks for looking at my tag :)

Valentine Storage Box by Donna

Hi scrappy friends!
Today I'm sharing a 14 x 14 lid of a cardboard box I use to store all of my Valentine papers and embellishments. I wanted a decorated box using the colors of my scrap area; black, white, and red.  I also wanted something fun and used Gina's chipboard shapes to embellish the box.
I basically made a layout on the top of the lid, and then covered the sides with black gesso and paper.

I used many different techniques to alter the chipboard. Most of the pieces were primed with gesso.
I used red and black ink on several of the pieces. The lovebirds were heat embossed with clear embossing powder before adding some red ink. The page frame was painted with crackle paint and heat embossed with white embossing powder.

Please stop by Gina's Designs store and see the all of the new shapes that have just been added!
Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Shiny Chandelier

Hi everyone! Melissa here for Gina's Designs. I hope everyone is enjoying their new year, and finding a little time to do some scrapbooking.
Here are the steps I used to make this fun chandelier. The chandelier will be coming soon to Gina's Designs!

1. Prep with gesso
2. Paint with liquid silver leaf paint
3.Mix purple twinkling H20s and blue watercolor paint and brush on whole surface.
4. Sprinkle on jeweled gold embossing powder on sconces, melt slightly with heat tool. This will give it a gritty texture.
5. Swipe on some glossy accents and sprinkle on metal silver glitter.
6. Paint surface with silver leaf paint.
7. Brush on gold leaf paint.

On one side I almost completely covered the surface with gold paint. I put more of the purple paint mix on it. On another side, I brushed the gold on lightly.
 Thanks for looking!

Love Birds Heart Wall Hanging by Kim

Hello friends! Today I would like to share with you this beautiful heart wall hanging. This is a fairly new product in Gina's store, and it's perfect for Valentine's Day!  I wanted to do it up in a shabby vintage style. This fun project is hanging in my craft room.
I first painted the hearts in the colors to go in my craft room. The first and last ones are a light pink. I then tore up some lovely rose themed paper and mod podged it in different spots on the hearts. For the center of each one, I dangled the smaller heart by punching a hole and using jump rings to attach them.  I then layered on more of the paper and the corrugated cardboard that comes with the wall hanging. I added some texture paste for dimension.  The birds from the Build A Layout Love Birds set were heat embossed.
I attached some crocheted lace to each piece to create the wall hanging.
For the two middle hearts I painted them in a teal color, then layered on some paper to match and cut up a vintage pink doily to lay over the top. I used some of Gina's gorgeous wings, which I heat embossed. I then added an angel and flowers to each to finish them off.

Lastly, the final heart got the same treatment as the first pink one. I added a metal number 14 to represent Valentine's Day, a pretty cameo, and flowers as well.
I hope you enjoyed my project today! Pick up one of these for yourself or give it to a friend for a great Valentine's Gift.
Thanks for stopping by!

Memory Tray by Guest Designer Pat

This week I had the pleasure of working with the Memory Tray Shadow Box.  
I started off by spraying the entire piece with Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst sprays (in pink and red). I added some K & Co. paper to the inside edges of each box, as well as the top and sides of the shadow box. I painted some of the hearts from the Valentine's Shape Set with white and pink paint. I painted a heart and locket from the same set in metallic copper. Once everything was painted and papered, I began assembling each section.

 For the very top, I added a piece of lace cut to the shape of a fan. I layered the phrase "A Little Romance", in its raw form, from the Words & Phrases 1 set. I heat embossed the lips with Ladybug Red from Martha Stewart, then added it next to the phrase at the top. I added an "XOXO" ticket from my stash.

For the largest compartment in the shadow box, I added a doily from the Cardstock Doilies Gina sent me. I stamped the Victorian couple on vanilla card stock and loosely cut it out to add on top of the doily using dimensional adhesive. I added a ticket that says "love" from my stash. I placed one of the hearts from the Valentine's Shape set in the left upper corner and layered a raindrop sticker on top. A couple of gorgeous roses finished off this compartment.
  The rest of the small compartments are pretty self explanatory, I think, by looking at the photos. I added a few more roses here and there from my stash, along some bows and a clock charm from my stash. The dress form embellishment is one that I made last week, but it does use Gina's dress form and doily.
