Valentine’s Day Card 2018 using Gina K Stamp Set and Gina K Products Haul

Hello!!  Welcome to my blog!  This is my first Valentine’s Day card of 2018.  I think Valentine cards are my favorite kind of cards to create.  I’m using some fabulous new products for this card.  I took a little jaunt up to Wisconsin to Gina K’s shop called Village Paper and Ink.  It was only an hour away from where I live in Illinois.  I don’t know why I didn’t visit her store a long time ago!  I wanted to buy some new cardstocks, and I heard that her cardstocks were absolutely lovely.  And it’s true!!  I am loving her cardstocks; they are heavy-weight and luxurious.  I would highly recommend them!  At her beautiful store, I felt like a kid in a candy shop; there were so many beautiful products to look at.  She also displayed her card creations all around the store–they were so fun to see!  Below is a picture of the products I purchased there.

For today’s card, I’m using a stamp set I purchased at her store, and it’s called Sophie Pig.  It’s so adorable!  I’m stamping the pig image first that onto a Lawn Fawn Lacy Heart Die cut.  I want my pig to be in front of the other images I’ll be stamping.

I used some Inkadinkado masking paper on my pig so I could stamp my other images over him.  Then when I pull off my mask, he appears in the forefront.

I inked on some Distress Oxide ink called Worm Lipstick onto my next panel.  I wanted this pink color to peek out from behind my heart.  I still wanted some white space on this panel, so I was careful not to go too close to the edges.

I played with my Copic markers a lot to figure out the coloring for these images.  I keep my favorite color combinations in a notebook so I can refer back to them.  I love how this pig turned out!

I’m adding detailing to my images with a white Uni-ball Signo pen.  On one of my white lines, I applied the ink too thickly.  After it dried, I was able to scrape it off with a craft knife.  Then I added more brown marker to it.  I used a couple of my Blick alcohol markers to color in the mud.  My collections of alcohol markers consist of Copic and Blick markers.  I can’t really tell the difference between the two brands.

For the umbrella and mud puddle, I’m using a new product to me called Nuvo Crystal Glaze.  This adds some nice shine to my images.  This product is very similar to Glossy Accents.

I wanted to pop up my heart with some fun foam for a little dimension.  Skor tape is my choice of adhesives to use with fun foam.  It’s super strong!

I heat embossed the sentiment, Hogs & Kisses onto a strip of cardstock with white embossing powder.  I cut it down into a banner shape and adhered it to my card front with my tape runner.

I have some heart accents that I added to my card as well.

In the picture below, I’m tilting the card so you can see the fabulous shine of the Nuvo Crystal Glaze.  I love this stuff!

Lastly, I remembered to add rosy cheeks to my pig.  I didn’t blend them out because I wanted them to be very bright.
