Gina and the Great Divide!


It's a wonderful day in the neighborhood ♫ cause I was able to make a card and play along in StampTV Great Divide Release Party Challenge!  I hope you were able to play, too!

She asked us to cut the layers into a piece or several pieces, any way we wish. I chose a simple angle, two layers. I cut a sliver of gold mirror card as a dividing accent (the great divide part) as well as some Japanese gold cording.

The flower is heat embossed with clear embossing powder, then sponged with distress inks. I masked the flower and splattered plain water over the red background. It was cut, mounted on black with about 1/8th inch all around both pieces.

Using the homemade 2nd most incredible stamping tool invented LOL, I stamped the vertical sentiment and then scattered some gold rhinestones using MMM to secure them to the card.

I messed up the first card and lost the second try. Third time? OK! I hope you have a wonderful week ahead ♥

Stamp Set: "Bold Blooms" (Rebecca Oehlers) and "Vertical Greetings2" (Theresa Momber) both by GKD
Inks: VersaMark, VersaFine black, Delicata gold
Distress Inks in Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick and Fired Brick
Cardstock by GKD white, AC cardstock black, SU mirror gold cardstock
"Mizuhiki" gold cording from Japan; Art Beads gold rhinestones; Ranger Clear Embossing Powder
Scor Tape and Multi Matte Medium (MMM)

Thank you for looking!
With lots of aloha ♥


  1. This card is beautiful. Thanks for sharing it.


  2. This is gorgeous. I love your design and the red and gold. Since I can not get into Stamp TV I had no idea what the challenge was so I am glad you showed your entry. I wish you good luck. Hopefully, I will get into ginas site again soon.

  3. I have the same story as Verna. We could not get into STV, so I too am so glad that I can see your beautiful entry. Love the soft colors with the gold.

  4. GREAT day in your neighborhood! LOVE that big bold beautiful blossom (say that 10 times fast--actually have Bruce try lol) I should get those vertical greetings I have always adored them, I think they add so much to a card written in that manner! Gorgeous entry, Rosy! xo~

  5. I love this, Rosy!! The touch of gold is the perfect accent to the large flower. The splattered background adds lovely texture, too!! Awesome!

  6. Congrats on your win over at STV!! You totally deserve the win, this card is gorgeous!! I am such a fan of that beautiful flower and use it often. And I love the gold on here, especially with the red. Stunning my dear, simply stunning!!!

  7. Pretty one Rosy. The gold was a great idea. ) Hugs
