Cat played in a challenge! :D

Hey y'all!!  Yes!  I played along in the Color Throw Down Challenge for this week:

I SOOOOoo love these colors together!  And I saw my fellow Gina K DT gal, Susie, and  her card inspired me to go have a look on the CTD blog....and since I just loved the colors, had to play!

I busted out the Gelli Plates for this card, its been a long time since I did some true mixed media.

This was alot of fun to make!  I just love the Gelli plates too.  I was doing a technique using package tape (card with that later on!)  and this piece of cardstock is what I would roll my brayer off on to remove some of the paint!  It was so pretty had to use it too, lol!  I stamped the big vine from Theresa Momber's Vine and Butterfly Stamp set and heat embossed it.  I do this when stamping over acrylic paint, heat emboss, so it wont smear.  I used a stylus to add some dots here and there...painted the daisy with the same acrylic paint and stamped the sentiment on some Washi paper and then tore it instead of cutting.  who needs scissors..right?  haha!  I distressed the edges with my new Tonic distress tool (omg I love this thing!!) Attached the daisy and sentiment using pop dots.  Did some layering and ta da!  all done!






Thanks for the fun challenge ladies!  I think it has been like years since I played along in a challenge!  LOL!  I enjoy them, dont know why I quit doing them...oh well, gonna try to keep that up!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!  It's suppose to be cooler here and I cant wait!  I love to go camping when it first cools off, before its too cold for Billy! haha!  I dont think it can get too cold for me!  LOL!

Gina K Designs August Release...StampTV kit, Painted Autumn Inspirational Blog Hop, Day 2!

Howdy Y'all!  Glad you stopped back by!





The Cast and Crew for Gina K Designs welcomes you to another fabulous blog hop celebrating the new Painted Autumn StampTV Kit! We hope to inspire you with some beautiful card projects as you hop along to each of the designer’s blogs! Today, we are featuring the second set in the Painted Autumn StampTV Kit.  



Today’s set, we are featuring Give Thanks. In this set, you will find fun and cuddly critters, acorn, leaves and fun sentiments to make the most adorable card projects!  There are so many possibilities with these sets!

 Up first with this set I have this card:

I took some air dry clay and rolled it pretty flat then used the leave stamp to make the impressions.  This doesnt hurt the stamps, I always just wash really quick with mild soap and water and they have been fine over the years!  :D   I then painted with Spectrum glitter brushes (loving those!)  And the little pieces hanging..I never throw any broken jewelry away and those are from some broken pieces!  And then this card:

I stamped the circle image, then used that as a guideline to stamp the leaves to make it look like a wreath.  This was super quick and I almost didnt use it, but my fellow DT and friend told me to! :D  I did a bit of distressing and sponging on the edges.  I punched two holes to tie my bow and all done! 

And here is a card I have to show ya, it used the new incentive stamp set, More Massive Messages that is the new Incentive this time around...I have to show it  because its Billy's pick of the Release!  :D  AND  to tell you to stop back on Thursday for a fun Blog candy Ill be doing!  :D

I used some distress inks on this...like watercoloring.  Added water and then just swooshed them on.  I heat embossed the sentiment in white and then carefully outlined it with a micro pen.Love how it turned out! 

Ok, thats all from me for now!

Gina K Designs August Release...StampTV kit, Painted Autumn Inspirational Blog Hop, Day 1!!


Hey Y'all!! So Glad to see you this month!  :D

The Cast and Crew for Gina K Designs welcomes you to another fabulous blog hop celebrating the new Painted Autumn StampTV Kit! We hope to inspire you with some beautiful card projects as you hop along to each of the designer’s blogs! Today, we are featuring one of the stamp sets from the kit.

Today’s set, we are featuring Painted Autumn. In this set, you will find beautiful floral and leaf images where you will be able to create the 3 or 4-step stamping technique! You can create one floral image or an entire bouquet of gorgeous autumn flowers. This set will be great to use all year long!



Ok, first today I have this card  using the Painted Autumn set in the kit (yes,  set has the same name as the kit, in case I was confusing you there, lol!)
\
I totally LOVE this sentiment...what it says and the font and just everything, lol!  I took the flower image, the solid one in the kit,  and stamped in white ink, then did the outline stamp in black...LOVE how it turned out! I struggle with two-step and threee-step stamping so much!  BUT, Gina shows how to do it perfectly!  Here is a link to one of her examples she shows:

Two step stamping made easy by Gina!

And here is another with this set:

And again, I just colored these flowers, lol!  I heat embossed them in white, then used watercolor to color them with.  The lattice is all shiny with Deco foil that Gina carries too.  I used a toner sheet of paper to cut it out with then ran it through my minc machine.  The butterfly is also done like that and then has an overlay of vellum.  I splattered using acrylic paint also.  (scroll on down to see my mess card!)

OK, ready for awesomeness?  Just follow these links below! 
And Be sure to leave a comment for your chance to win a $20 Gift Certificate!!  Just ckeck the  Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hop.

I posted a little snippet of this card on FaceBook yesterday.  I threw it into the trash, then decided I didnt have enough with the floral images, so dug it out and tried to make it work.  I think it's like, OK...what ya think?


I accidentally dropped some black paint on it.  I used the set Tiny Textures  too on this too!  I already had the flower and was going to put the sentiment where the checkered bow is but that is where the paint plopped down on!  LOL!  So I used a die to cut that part out, then added more splatters.  And this is it!  :D
Thank you sooo very much for stopping by!  YOU are my inspiration!  :D
