Welcome everyone! Today is Day 4 of an Instagram hop featuring the new release from Gina K Designs. Over the next several days, we will be featuring a stamp set from the release and sharing inspiration.
You can follow my Instagram account HERE. This is where all the magic is happening but I still wanted to include a blog post for reference.
Today we are featuring the new Peaceful Christmas stamp set designed by Hannah Drapinski. There are two amazing images on this set. One is a silhouette of trees and the other is this stunning scene.
There are two things I actually wanted to show you today. First, the stamp set of course.
And second, I wanted to show you we all have to start somewhere when it comes to trying something new. Today, I’m trying to color with colored pencils. If you know me, I do not work with colored pencils very often but it’s something I have been wanting to get into. So I dusted off my set of Faber Castells and gave it a go.
Obviously you can see pencil lines so I need some practice lol. The reason I choose colored pencils is I just didn’t think I would get a soft effect on the snow with any other medium.
Other then my pencil lines showing, I’m pretty happy. This scene reminds me of the Christmas cards my mom used to hoard from years back and occasionally send out to us.
If you are looking at trying something new but scared of the results, just go for it! We all have to start somewhere and this is my start with pencils.
Here is another card I created that I shared on release night using the silhouette image on the Peaceful Christmas stamp set.

Such pretty cards! Very winter holiday without screaming it at you. Good on your for trying something new:-) . I have found that using either the colorless blender, or gamsol helps to smooth those ‘pesky pencil lines’. Gina K has shown us the gamsol trick in some of her videos, it’s terrific!
Both are so beautiful and well designed.
Your cards are beautiful, Mindy!! Thanks for sharing your talent w/ all of us!
