Gina K Designs October Release Inspiration Hop Day 2!!




The Cast and Crew for Gina K Designs welcomes you to another fabulous Inspiration Blog Hop! Gina, along with the Cast and Crew and Guest Designers, 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.

 Today, we are showcasing  Theresa Momber's Peace and Joy.  I have a couple of cards to show you today.  This first one is the one I used glitter on!  :D   Yes, Ill be sparkly for about a week at least now!  But I do like what the little strips of platinum glitter added to it!

 

I stamped and colored a bunch of the holly image and then used versamark ink and embossing powder on them too.  Thus the glossy looking leaves to those holly!  (like IRL!)  i then strung them on some jute and tied them to the card!  Pretty simple!  Ok, next a technique card I did, Cracked Glass! 

I had forgotten about this technique and was thrilled how it turned out! Gotta watch burning them fingers in doing this though, lol!  I have two burned spots from this!   And a close up of the 'cracked Glass' :

Loving the sparkle and the cracked glass is amazing. Is there a video on how to do this somewhere??

Dee said...

It's been a long time since cracked glass was demonstrated in Gina K, and your card turned out beautifully. I like the stringing of holly leaves on your first card, and the technique you used to make them shine. Refreshing!

Sue D said...

Great card designs and techniques.

Becky said...

Very nice effect with the cracked glass. I had forgotten about it, too. I'm glad you reminded me. Both cards are gorgeous. I'm a glitter girl myself, so I have a soft spot for the first card. Thanks for sharing.

Linda Anderson said...

These cards are stunning!! Love the cracked glass technique...and thanks for the reminder, haven't done it in quite some time.

Joyce Evans Erb said...

WOWZA, I am a sucker for technique cards and added dimension! Love the lace and that cutout at the bottom with the cracked glass. Love the hanging leaves too! LOL, I rarely use glitter and I did yesterday too. Ugh, I sparkle. Your glitter looks great.

Judy Woodland said...

Great inspiration here, Cat! Love, love, love the broken glass. I, too, had forgotten about this great technique!

Verna Angerhofer said...

Stunning works of art again with that beautiful stamp set. I love the cracked glass background too. It has been a long time since I used that technique as well. Thanks for the reminder.

Love the cards but the second with glazing is beautiful!

I'm sorry to hear about your burned fingers. Both of your cards are beautiful. I especially like the glossy holly leaves. They do look real.

The cracked glass technique really makes the cardinal card standout!

Two absolute beauties here, Cat! Never tried the cracked glass technique, it looks amazing. and your glistening Holly strung on the jute is so pretty.

Kay S said...

Both cards are stunning! Love how you did the holly leaves and the cracked glass is perfect on the cardinal card.

Dee Earnshaw said...

Very nice designed cards. The first one must have taken you ages with all the fussy cutting!! The cracked glass is perfect for the second card - makes it look like ice. Thank you for such amazing ideas.

Cracked glass - lovely touch for a wintery card.

Gorgeous Cards Cat! I love them both. I may have to try that cracked glass look. I also love your glitter!!!! :)

What a great idea to string the holly on the jute! Love the glitter and how you used the holly paper in the background. Your cracked glass look with the cardinal if off the hook! Thanks for sharing.

Awesome cards!! Will have to look up the cracked glass technique - never tried it. On the first card, did you use glitter paper or glitter tape for the stripes? Very nice touch! Thanks for all you do for us.

Both are very lovely. Like the cracked glass.

Cat, glittery girl, thanks for reminding me of the fun of both glitter and the cracked glass technique (this is one of my hubbie's favorites) Cheers!

I Also love the cracked glass. Haven't used that technique but will now.
