Preview of GKD "Lovely Shelf" stamp set, designed by Nina Brackett

I want to thank Gina K for the unbelievable  invitation to be a part of her Center Stage Spotlight Design Team for December.  It's an absolute honor and one I never expected.  The creative talent here at StampTV is astounding and to be a part of  them is such an honor.  


As one of the newest members I have had the unbelievable privilege of creating with the newest stamp set by Nina Brackett, entitled "Lovely Shelf".  I've had such a great time playing and creating with these stamps; they have so many combo possibilities and they work well with other sets that Nina has designed, such as her "Vintage Borders",  which is available at Stamp TV.  


Here are the samples of the cards I made with the lovely,  "Lovely Shelf" stamp set for tonight's preview.   I have so many more ideas of combinations with these stamps and I'll be posting them in other bloggings and in the StampTV Gallery but get this set yourself and let's see what you can do with it.   

Also, don't forget.....tell your friends, to be sure to attend the always exciting GKD RELEASE PARTY over at Split Coast Stampers on Thursday, December 3.  Here's the link that will take you there to the party, it's always a blast and so much fun.  GKD PARTY Please come on over and get in on the party!  


ENJOY! And thanks so much stopping by and for viewing my cards.

Stamps:  "Lovely Shelf", by Nina Brackett.  I used layers of GKD papers:
  GKD Pure Luxury Card Stock Ivory, Cranberry Tart and new cardstock papers Creme de Menthe (embossed background) and Mother of Pearl which the doily and rose vase is stamped and cut from.  The punched eyelet scalloped "curtain" gave it a softer background.  I wanted to make the top of the shelf look more dense, so I stamped the shelf again onto the Cranberry Tart paper and cut the top and glued it to the top of the shelf I had stamped on the card stock. The sentiment was stamped onto GKD Pure Luxury Ivory CS and dye cut it.  I added an eyelet and threaded some gold cording through the vase that was popped up using dimensional dots.




Stamps:  "Lovely Shelf" by Nina Brackett.  Again using layers of  GKD Pure Luxury Pure White, Chocolate Kiss, and a new cardstock called "Ocean Mist" (partially embossed) on background.  The lamp shade was stamped on pattern dp, the lamp base was first stamped on and then cut from GKD "Good as Gold" cs, the teapot and cup were stamped on "Ocean Mist" distressed with ink then covered with glossy accents.  I cute a piece of Chocolate Kiss and covered the edge of the shelf so it gave it some dimension.  A gel pen was used to enhance the doily and the beading around the lamp shade and the sentiment.
