New! StampTV kit! Journey of the Heart! Blog Hop today!

Hey y'all!! Welcome to our blog hop, featuring the brand new StampTV kit, Journey of the Heart.

The Cast and Crew for Gina K Designs welcomes you to another fabulous Inspiration Blog Hop! Gina and Cast and Crew will inspire you with many beautiful ideas! And as you hop through their blogs, make sure to leave a comment on each of them because we will choose a few random comments and those stampers will each win a grab bag of Gina K. Designs products! To see the full list of winners check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hops.

I've done several cards for the hop and will try to keep my chattering to a minimum. LOL!! Here is my first creation:

This was a fun card to make! I used gelatos to make the background. I wanted a warm color to go with the sunflower stamp, for a recipient who needs a bit of cheering up while sick! :D Super easy card to make though! The white is paint splatters I added to it for more grunge look!

Next is a card made with leftovers on my table. I try to do this everytime, us up the leftovers right then, because chances are, Ill never pull it out of my scrap pile to use every again, lol! i KNOW me! ha! ANYways, here is the card:

And last but not least, my favorite of the bunch Ive made:

this card uses the emboss resist technique and I also used the gelatos on this one to create the background for it. I also used some molding paste and stencil to add to the background and it also gives texture to the card.

Ok, ready for more awesome inspiration? I am! Let's go hop to my fellow Cast and Crew!

It's a Tipster Tuesday!

Hey y'all! I thought I'd start a little something here on my blog, and I'm calling it 'Tipster Tuesday!'...and basically, the name says it all. Every Tuesday (or maybe every OTHER Tuesday, ha!) I will post a little tip for y'all! Most of the time, paper crafting related, but there may be some other tips along the way I might want to pass along, lol!

Today's Tip is a little pictorial! I saw on the web somewhere these little stick pins and on these particular ones were buttons! And I though, I could MAKE those! Soooo here is how I made a few!

First I gathered up some buttons and some jewelry making head pins.

And since the headpins dont have much for the glue to hang on to to attach to the button, I made a eye hole with my jewelry pliers.

I used hot glue on mine, simply because Im not patient enough! But glues like E6000 or Crystal Effects would work fine too.

TADA! Look at alll my pretty stick pins!! :D How easy was that??!!

Dont like naked button you say? Just add your twine before gluing the pin to the back of the button! :D

Another little tip...when using the hot glue, kinda stir your pin around in the hot glue so it coats it all over the pin. This will help it attach much better! And if any glue comes through the holes, just wait until it drys then peel off!

Ok, that's all for today! Hope you enjoyed my 'Tip'! :D
