Gina K Design February Preview, Day 4 – Lovely Labels along with Inside and Out

I have two projects that I am happy to share with you tonight.  The first project I created using the new Lovely Labels set, created by Nina Brackett.  The Lovely Labels stamp set coordinates beautifully with Spellbinders Labels 1, 4, 8, and 9.


Using a card back of Lemon Drop, I layered a panel of Lovely Lavender and topped that with a piece of digital patterned paper from a package that Nina Brackett also designed called Spring into Spring that compliments the new Spring Assortment paper pack. For even more information on these new products, please visit the Lovely Labels Illustrator's blog Nina Brackett.


The same flourish punch that I used to make the fancy curves on the mat was used to make the border that were punched from the same Lovely Lavender cardstock accented with pearls. with a strip of purple ribbon from the Spring Ribbon Collection and finished off with a border of velvet scallop ribbon.

The sentiment was stamped onto a lavender 3 X 5 index card that just happened to match the project well.


To finish off this project I stamped a finishing sentiment on the interior with a trio of flowers embellished with yellow stickles.

This next project also uses the Lovely Labels set along with sentiments from the Free with 3 set, Inside and Out.

Thank-You On a card base of Pure Luxury Ivory, I layered black cardstock topping it off with this fun stripped image that was die cut using the Labels 4 Nestabilities.


I accented the sides with pearls and added a few smaller ones to the die cut as well.  The inside was finished off with two more layers that were scored using my Scor-Buddy.

For more creative inspiration, please check out these designer's links for even more samples made with Nina's stamp set as well as the new Free with Three stamp set as well as the Spring Florals card kit:
