Gina K Design's Days of Summer StampTV Kit DT Inspiration Blog Hop!!

Hey y'all!! Welcome to our Gina K Designs StampTV Kit hop!!

The Design Team for Gina K Designs welcomes you to another awesome blog hop! This time we are featuring the brand spanking new StampTV kit! We are hoping to truly inspire you with many beautiful creations and ideas! And as you hop along, make sure you leave a comment on all blogs because we will be choosing a winner to win a $50.00 gift certificate from Gina K Designs! Just check back in a couple of days on StampTV and check the Big News forum to see if you are the winner!


I have several cards to show you today, I so love these StampTV kits! I just go a little crazy using them! :D Up first is a card that a gave a little tease on FB of. Here is the full card:

I used some acrylic paints on this, and some crackle medium to get the aged wood look. (the Gina K Design kraft cardstock is a REALLY good cardstock to use with acrylic paints...super sturdy!) Then I scored it with the scor-pal. The little tag is done by doing metal hand stamping (hammer, steel block and letters). Another love of mine is making jewelry and I love to be able to use those WITH my Gina K stamps!

Next up is a fun little seahorse!

He was colored using the rock-n-roll technique using Gina K Design inks in Blue Raspberry and Grass Green. I also stamped and embossed him using versamark ink and clear embossing powder onto the kraft cardstock for my bg paper. LOVE how this turned out! :D

Next up, super easy and quick one:

See?! Super easy one! and pretty quick. I did the stitching by hand so that is the only thing that took a bit of time. That used the new Sew Easy tool that I found at HL.

Another fun one:

I went a little crazy with the dp! It is sooo awesome! So I used alot of the blue tones to create my 'ocean', LOL! The little fishing pole and hook (dont worry, its craft wire and will not poke you!) were made using a tooth pick, craft thread and craft wire. Isnt it cute!?!

Ok, still with me? haha! Next up is me combining my love of making jewelry and GKD stamps and papers:

I stamped onto that gorgeous new dp from Gina K, Watercolor Garden, and then laid a piece of vellum over the top of it. I stamped the little butterflies onto the glass with stayz on ink. It's so hard to get a good picture of this, but I do hope you can tell pretty much how it turned out. I've worn it already, lol!



OK, now, check out all the amazing designs and inspiration:


And did you know that Gina K Designs has a Pinterest board? All kinds of eye candy there! Including today's showcased stamp set, Days of Summer! Here is a link to that board:
