Gina K Designs Blog Hop! New Incentive Stamp, Coffee Therapy!

Hey y'all!  Surprise!  Its me!  :D  Glad you are here!



The Cast and Crew for Gina K Designs welcomes you to a special Inspiration Blog Hop featuring our new incentive stamp set called, “Coffee Therapy”. 




With this stamp set you will be able to make fun friendship cards to send to your favorite coffee buddy! We hope to inspire you with some beautiful card projects as you hop along to each of the designer’s blogs!

Enjoy the gorgeous inspiration samples from the team and then comment on each blog for your chance to win an awesome grab bag of GKD goodies!!!  To see who won, check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hop.

I truly am having a blast working with this little set!  Some think the set is little, and you wont get much use from it..but I am here to testify that this set is not like that at all!!  :D







Up first, I have for you Billy's Pick of the Hop!  


I used the designer papers from the New StampTV kit, Made With Love ( totally awesome!)  And fussy cut the coffee cups to pop them up.  I like that look, which you will probably notice!  :D  Billy and me agree on a favorite this time!
















Up next is A close 2nd for favorite for me:

Had to get a bit of distressing on at least one card!  :D  I used the Spectrum Glitter Markers and just scribbled the background after stamping the coffee cup and embossing it with clear embossing powder.  The marker will kinda settle into the little areas to make the flowers show up when you wipe off that part!  Then used a stencil to make the coffee stains...how could I NOT use this stencil for this set?  (tim holtz stencil).




A few  things about our incentive stamps.  now they will be changing every two weeks!  Lots of asked for that and Gina did it!  Once the current incentive is done...you will be able to purchase it also.  Im loving this new incentive plan myself!

Gina K Designs January 2016 Inspiration Blog Hop, Made With Love!




Hey y'all!  Glad to see you here today!  :D


The Cast and Crew for Gina K Designs welcomes you to another fabulous Inspiration Blog Hop! This blog hop is for our January Release!  We hope to inspire you with some beautiful card projects as you hop along in the hop this month!  Enjoy the gorgeous inspiration samples from the team and then comment on each blog for your chance to win an awesome grab bag of GKD goodies!!!  To see who won, check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hop.




I truly think this is my most favorite of all of the kits!  Totally flooded with ideas in my old brain!  I have like 5 halfway finished cards done...because I know if I dont start, right when I get the thought, ill forget it, haha!  Ok, so...I always ask Billy (hubby) to pick his favorite and this is the one he picked:

AND I admit, its my favorite one Ive done for this release too!  :D  It has a clear overlay on it, that the tree and sentiment is stamped on.  I do have plans to show How I made the 'fence' on this too.  The moon is made by making a circle die cut, then taking a marker (I used Copics W1 and W2) and just scribble on different areas.  Then I took the Spectrum clear glitter marker and swished it all over.  It looks sooo cool IRL!

Here is another super quick one I have made:
I CAS card ...I also used the Spectrum Glitter markers on this one and then fussy cut it.  I did the dry embossing and then just put the flower in middle of it, ta-da!  I gave this to Billy on our anniversary the other day.  (our 33rd :D)



OK!  Ready for more eye candy?!  Just follow the links below!!

Gina K Designs December 2015 Release Inspiration Blog Hop!

Hey y'all!!  Long time no  see!  Glad you stopping by today!





LINK LIST AND BLURB FOR MONDAY, DECEMBER 21

The Cast and Crew for Gina K Designs welcomes you to another fabulous Inspiration Blog Hop!

I am so tickled to be sharing these two stamps sets!  They are soo much fun to work with.  Being on the DT, when we get the stamps, sometimes they are kinda hard for me to come up with anything (doesnt happen often, but it has!)  you dont really have anything else to look at, like what others might have done with the sets, to give you  any ideas...YOU are the one others will be looking to to come up with something...well, that being said...both of these sets I have not had to struggle at all!  The idea for them just keep coming!  :D  

Ok, first up we have Beth's new set called, 'Hippo Bird Day' !!  Here is what I have for today:



 Party hats!  And I used my new Spectrum Noir Glitter pens with them....TOTALLY loving those!  These little hats just sparkle IRL!  

  Next up is Melanie's new set, called, Twine Time!  And like Ive said before...Melanie packs her sets jam full of stuffs and it makes the combinations and ways to use these stamps endless!  Here is my card for today with this set:


I actually didnt use any of the twine images, but I love this little saying so much I had to use one more time, lol!  Another case from me today!  Hope you like!
