Hey everyone! Happy Monday 🙂 Its summer in full swing in my part of the world! Which means time for some beautiful sunny cards! Today’s Iron Craft will get you in the modd for some summer fun!
I have a special guest today! All my guests are special in their own way ofcourse! But today’s guest is one of those people who bring you their beautiful drawings in stamp form so you can make even more beautiful art with them! Yes! She is Melanie Muenchinger — one of the illustrators for Gina K Designs!
Melanie has illustrated some of my favorite stamp sets! Take a look! I bet most of you own a Melanie stamp set as well. She has a wonderful, soft style and her images are so detailed that it is a joy to color them and create with them. They are versatile too — I have made everything from a thank you card to a sympathy card to even a baby card with the same stamp from some of Melanie’s sets!
So go say Hi if you don’t know her but not before you see what we cooked up in today’s Iron Craft 🙂
You don’t need much guesswork to know that we are using one of Melanie’s stamp sets ofcourse! We are using Gina K Gifts From The Sea today. Its an awesome set showcasing everything summer!
We have another ingredient as well. We decided to use one of Melanie’s cards from her new book Fabulous Frames! Here is the inspiration card we used.
Read on to see what we created with both!
Melanie has a lovely re-interpretation of her card! I use the same frame format on my card and kept it pretty close in sketch to the inspiration. Take a look…
I colored my frame with copics and made the background with some sponging. Drew the black outline along the inside with a sharpie. Wanna know how Melanie made her card? Drop by her blog! But not before you read on for the giveaway 🙂
Melanie is sponsoring today’s giveaway with one of her newest stamp sets – Pretty Patterns 2! Thanks Melanie!!!
Just leave a comment here by 23:59 EST on June 7 telling us which of Melanie’s stamp sets is your favorite! I’ll pick a random winner from the comments for the giveaway!
