CPS and Gina K

Hi ya'll!! This week Gina K Designs is sponsoring CPS and I really love the sketch so I decided to play too! Here is the sketch:



And my card:



I used the new StampTV Kit called Vintage Chic...we will have more inspiration with this set on Thursday of this week too! I LOVE it! I kept seeing this image as a tight rope walker...so did that and that is suppose to be 'stormy skies' behind her, LOL! I also used the new cardstock color, Just Peachy...loving this color too!

Hope to see you playing along too! You COULD win a prize!

Gina K Design May Release Inspiration Hop Day 1!!

Hey Ya'll!! Welcome to our first day of inspirational hops for you! We will have one today, then with the Memorial Day holiday weekend here in the USA, we will resume with our hops on Tuesday instead of Monday! And did you make it to the party last night? It was a blast, and so many fun videos posted by Gina!! Be sure and check them out on StampTV!!

Ok, for today, we have two stamps set to get your creative juices flowing, hopefully! Up first is a set by Theresa Momber called Vogue Vases...this is what I have done with it for today:



You cant tell it, but I used some crystal effects on the blue vase too. This also uses the next set that is up, one by Melanie Muenchinger called Border Bling!! (the oval bling around the sentiment!) I made this card using just stamps from this set:



This is one of those that looks so much better IRL! It really does twinkle! I spritz the whole thing with some shimmer spritz and used a stardust glitter pen on the little stars. So you see, you can use this set even by itself!

Tuesday Trigger....

I decided to do a quick card to play along with the Tuesday Trigger over on Moxie Fab World Blog. This week's Trigger is called Skirting the Issue and here is the inspiration pic:



And my card:



Did ya faint?? I KNOW!! It's not Gina K Designs is it?! LOL! I got this stamp set at my LSS ...she had a BUNCH of these little sets marked WAY down. The only stamps they carry there are Technique Tuesday's too! Got this for little to nothing! Who can pass up a bargain like that?! haha! Anyways, the stripes were my inspiration for my card. Used the same colors and a Sizzix embossing folder. Embossed the cardstock first then colored with some SU! markers in the colors I wanted...easy peasy!

Thats all for now! Hope you have had a wonderful relaxing weekend! I hate Mondays though...and I dont even work, lol!

Gina K Designs Sew Fun Blog Hop!

Hey ya'll!! Welcome to our monthly blog hop!

Members of Gina K.'s Design Team have come together to host a hop with sewing as the center theme. Along the hop you will find a variety of sewing techniques from hand sewing to faux sewing!

If you came from Carolina Buchting you are in the right spot!! If not make sure to head over to StampTV's Main Forum where you will find a list of all those participating in today's hop.

I decided to do just a bit of accent stitching on my card...my little janome bit the dust and I havent purchased another one yet...but I bet I will after seeing today's inspirations! LOL! Here is my card:



And a close up of the stitching:



I inked my image with SU! markers, then stamped onto white cardstock. Before I did the touch of stitching, I used my paper piercer to make the holes on the flowers, just to make it easier in stitching it!

Next on your stop is the oh so talented Deb Felts!! Can't wait to see what she and all the others have for us!

Thanks so much for stopping by!!

No stamping!

Ever make a card and your just not sure whether you like it or not? Or if you even want to SHOW it? Well, thats how I feel about this card, lol! I wanted to play along in the Tissue Paper Magic Challenge over on the Moxie Fab Blog and envisioned this card in my head...but still not quite right ...oh well! I am posting it anyways! :D



And as the title says, NO stamping on this card! I used 3 different Dienamics from My Favorite Things! LOVE these dies! I used the grass, mini rolled roses and the medium scallop. I wanted the bigger rolled rose, they just have been out of stock everytime I go to buy it, lol! Hopefully Ill catch it one day!

Thats all for today. Gina K Design Team has a fun hop coming up this Thursday, hope to see you then! Thanks once again for stopping by, I so appreciate all and ANY comments I get! :D
