For my first card I used the script patten paper and used Gina K'd Fancy Foil  in Passionate Pink.  

I stamped that big gorgeous flower in Passionate Pink and then colored with Prisma Pencils to add shading.  Super easy!  


And my next card I used that fun bicycle image:


Some of you might remember me showing these little tissue paper squares that i picked up at the Dollar Tree...well, I finally used them on a card!  They are glued on with just some MS glue.  The bicyle was colored with Prisma pencils.  And then just stamped the sentiment right on top of the tissue papers, popped up the bicycle and tied a bow...all done!  :D

And now, last but not least and Billy's pick of the crop...using kraft cardstock:

This uses the new Incentive stamp set, Rose Bouquet.  I love how this turned out!  I stamped the image with versamark ink, used a black glitter embossing powder for the flowers.  Then I cut the flowers out around the corner there.  Tied another bow (on the left side...AGAIN?  What's up with me doing that!??!  haha!)  todo!  All done and I think the cutting around the flowers really added a unique touch to this card!

Over the past few weeks, the Foil-Mates products have been flying off the shelves at Gina K Designs. Please be assured that if they are out-of-stock, they will quickly be back on the shelves again soon. In fact, Gina just stocked the shelves with a fresh batch of Foil-Mates, Fancy Foils and dies and more will be on the way.

If you are new to Foil-Mates, they are used to step-up the shimmer and shine in your card projects! Creating cards is never more easy and beautiful when you work with this new line of foil products. From beautiful pre-printed Foil-Mates, to stunning colors of Fancy Foils, when you combine them together the outcome is stunning! Discover how many various combinations of different cards and invitations you are able to create with Gina’s Foil-Mates products. With many of Gina’s most popular signature colors now available in foil, coordinating with Gina K Designs card stock and ink has never been easier!

We would like to thank Therm O Web for being such a great partner in the Foil-Mates line of products.

We will be selecting one lucky commenter at the end of the hop and that person will win a $50 Gina K Designs gift certificate! To see who won, check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hop. Ready for some inspiration?
Here is a card I made for today!

 For this card, I didnt use the Foil Mates actually, lol!  I just used the foil and some score tape!  I LOVE how the foil matches the cardstock perfectly and wanted to show that!  I heat embossed the daisy from the stamp set, Vine and Butterfly , then masked it with some masking fluid.  I then used the inks that are in the Foil- Mates line from ThermOWeb and sponged all around the card base.  I then rubbed off the masking and did a quick color with some pencils.  Not really much to color though, lol!  And I also made a matching envelope! 



 Here you can see a little peek of the inside where I also used scor tape and the foil.  I also added a small strip of the wild Dandelion Foil to the matching envelope.   Just that small touch adds a bit of elegance that the recipient will see before even opening to see the card.

I just used the dies to cut circles and layered the single stitch and double stitch that gives it that small edge, which I totally LOVE!! 






Up nexty is the Foil Mates Invitations -- Save The Date.  And I made another wedding invite!  :D


I made a folding card...not sure what the fold is called, but it folds up from the bottom and then down from the top.  The above card is a picture of it closed.  here is one with it opened:


The enclosed removable card has wrapped with tissue paper and the burlap and lace ribbon is like a belly band.  Here is the inside card:

I made wedding invites for my niece a few years back and boy, do i wish I had of had these foil mates!  i heat embossed with gold until I'd never do again...lol!  (I did...LOL)

 Just look at all of this gorgeousness!! And in case you didnt notice...the foils match Gina K Cardstocks!  woot!



I cant tell you how excited I was about this line of product from Thermo Web and Gina K!  Up first today we are showcasing the Foil Mates Birthday Essentials and You're Invited .  Up first is the card I made with the Birthday Essentials set:


 I used the Polka dotted background Foil Mate on this one too And also the Birthday Essentials.  This card only took a bit of time because of the banner I cut out for it, lol!  And as we all know, its so very hard to capture shine on our cards!  But believe me, its sooo shiny!  I used the Passionate Pink Fancy Foil on this one.

Up next is a card with the Foil Mate, "You're Invited"  I created a little Invite!  :D

 This is a criss cross card I think its called.  The triangle sides dont move, you insert the info card behind those, like a pocket (maybe a pocket card?  LOL)  This one up top here is with the info card inserted.
And this shows the invite pulled out.  What I love most about this line...im a FAST card maker!  Like my idol and fellow DT  Melanie Muenchinger!!  :D

Gina K Designs - Inspiration Blog Hop - Day 3!!


Hey Y'all! Thanks for stopping by!



The Cast and Crew for Gina K Designs welcomes you to another fabulous blog hop celebrating the new stamp sets by Gina K and the illustrator team from Gina K Designs! We hope to inspire you with some beautiful card projects as you hop along to each of the designer’s blogs! Today, we are featuring the My Anchor Mini Kit.

This stamp set is so fun and versatile! You will be able to create amazing card projects...especially for
the male figures in your life!  Which as stampers, we all know can be challenging, right?



And look at what all else comes in this mini kit:

Cardstock, ink pads and papers AND glue OH MY!  this is such an awesome bargain!

Ok, I got hit with some late night inspiration last night and came back and changed my blog post because I liked these cards better, LOL!  Here is my first one for you:

For this card, I have a piece of blue jeans as part of the card.  And the part that the sentiment is stamped...I took of piece of that brown wrapping paper that comes in lots of packages and stamped the anchor image all over a section of it and stamped it with versamark, then heat embossed it.  I will use it like this..cut in strips.  Im being frugal...yes?  :D   Ok , got one more card to share today with you:


I was trying to create a rocky point that the light house is sitting on...can you tell that?  LOL!  I heat embossed this in silver , the 'water' was created with colored vellum, I tore the edges to give white cap appearance, and the ray of the light was created with glitter paste...of all glitter things...I LOVE this glitter paste!  It is gorgeous and doesnt get all over the place!  (I might make Gina pass out saying I love anything glitter!  haha!)


Enjoy the gorgeous inspiration samples from the team and then comment on each blog for your chance to win a $20 Gina K Designs gift certificate! To see who won, check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hop.
