A Friend Is...

Happy Thanksgiving to all of my American readers today!

----------------

Last December, I had the honour of being a guest designer for Melanie Muenchinger over at Gina K. Designs. Melanie designs stamp sets for Gina K. and every once and awhile Melanie asks her previous guest designers to help her out.

I had the honour of guest designing with Mel's "Hand-in-Hand" stamp set. This set is so versatile. It features a variety of whimsical hand images and coordinating greetings and sentiments.

A Friend Is...

Supplies: stamps, Gina K. Designs (Hand in Hand, Very Merry Christmas); cardstock, Gina K. Designs, Bazzill; glitter glue, inks, Ranger; ink, Copic, Memento, Versamark; flowers, Prima; embossed tag, Provocraft; die cut circles, Spellbinder's; pearls, Hero Arts; other, thread, ribbon.

For my card I first die cut and embossed a simple circle of white Gina K. Designs "Pure Luxury" cardstock and stamped my hands using a beige Memento ink. I coloured my image using my Copic markers.

To make my green back ground, I used some other Gina K. stamps called A Very Merry Christmas to stamp in Versamark and then clear embossing powder was applied and heat set. I rubbed some glorious Distress Inks over it to reveal the embossed design.

I dry embossed a tag using a Provocraft embossing folder and then inked and distressed the edges. The sentiment is from Melanie's "Hand in Hand" stamp set as well.

Come and join me on Melanie's blog and just check out some of her incredible stamps and creations! This card is being featured on her blog today!
