GKDT Technique Hop Blog Hop



 Welcome to the Gina K Designs Technique Blog Hop!  
You should have arrived here from Carolina Buchting's blog, if not head back at check out her great post.

LOVE this image in this months Stamp TV kit Springtime Silhouettes!    I also LOVE Gina's tutorial on Nestabilities, Images beyond the border, and use is OFTEN! It adds the pop of detail you are sometimes looking for!

Stamp your image, and then place your die of choice down over image to decide placement.  You can choose to leave the wings out instead if you like-

Draw along the edge of the shape of the die with a pencil, maybe a half inch on each side of the beak.  Then cut into the card stock and trim around the beak.  Be sure to check out Gina's Tutorial on Stamp TV for a FULL detailed explanation. 


 Tape the nestabilities to the card stock using removable tape, allowing the cut portion to extend beyond the die.

 Here is what the end result should like- I still need to erase the pencil line and trim up the beak a bit more.


 That's it for the hop folks!
Head on over to Stamp TV to check out all the fabby tutorials Gina K has!!!
