Gina K. Designs February Release Inspiration Blog Hop!

Hey Y'all!  Glad you stopped by!



We are so very excited to be sharing a New Mini Kit, Wreath Builder, a new set by Alicia K., Stippled Flowers, and a new incentive called Doodle Sayings.  OH!  and a little Tidy Towel to clean up all that stamping you gonna be do with these new sets!  :D

Be sure also to follow along on the blog hop and to comment on each blog because we will be picking a winner for a $50 Gift certificae to Gina K. Designs!  You can check the Big News Forum a few days after the hop to see who won!

Up first for you today, I have the new mini kit, Wreath Builder.  And I cannot come close to telling you how much I am totally loving this set!  I have stamped up so many things with the template and images!  It is a Blast to play with and easy learning curve, if any!  Here is what I have for today:

and the inside:
I used Gink K. cardstock in Warm Cocoa and Peach Bellini.  I used the template to stamp out the wreath in the first photo and also used the same images to stamp the inside to tie it together.  This card took me maybe 5 minutes!  And I'm a slow card maker, lol! 


Next up for me is the Stippled Flowers by Alicia K. and its sooo much fun!!  Here is my card for today:

For this card, I used an embossing folder on the upper part of the base and then drew the lines on bottom area with the Scorpal.  I colored the flowers and the base with copics and pencils.  I love these flowers in this set...omg so fun!!  You know a stamp is drawn good if you take and color and it makes a beautiful image without much effort!  :D

And one more from me today with the new incentive set, Doodle Sayings:

I ordered some markers that were suppose to be metallic looking even on black, and they are!  I LOVE how this flower coloed out in white!!  I loved coloring them on black i did a whole bunch! haha!
They are so pretty and shiny!  I also used the same flower to make the background with...stamped and then heat embossed that image in clear to create the bg.  Very subtle but pretty little touch i think!


 

Ok, ready for more eye candy?  Just follow these links below and leave my fellow DT and Guest Designers a comment on their blogs so we can get you entered to win the gift certifiate!

Furry Friends Blog Hop! from Gina K. Designs!

Hey Y'all!  Glad to see you today!
Today, we will be featuring two new sets from Alicia Krupsy!

Frisky Felines Bundle (also available seperate)
Playful Pups Bundle (available seperately)
Both of these sets are so much fun to stamp and play with!  And of course, I'm a bit partial to the kitties...being known as the Cat Lady to some, lol!  So up first, is a card with the Frisky Felines set:
 

I tried my hand at no line stamping.  I used Prisma colored pencils and gamasol to color the kitty with.  You cant see it very well but the vellum piece has clear embossed paw prints across it too.  I think I do like how my no line coloring turned out...took me forever though I think, lol!  But do need more practice!

Next up, the Playful Pups set.  Here is what I did with that one:


I also used Foil Mates by Gina K. from ThermOWeb.  This doggy was, or I should say I TRIED to color him like all of the cute pomeranians out there!  My sister has one, and I know Gina K. has one too, Teddy!  I used the colors of those poms, red haired.  There are sooo many variations of poms out there!  Im going to be coloring a bunch of them soon!  For this card also, the closure is a fold over, and I tucked the top part of the card behind the little Pom.  Here is a pic:

and I also decoreated the inside:
I used the paw print and also used the fancy foils and fancy foil mates.  This card is a bit smaller than the normal A2 size, but still mailable (is that a word?? LOL)  I love making cards a bit different shaped every now and then.  And love how this turned out! :D  It s so fun to use stamps and the foil mates....makes it so fun to create with!  :D

Ok!  Dont forget to make the hop to all of the sites listed below!  A few days after the hop we will have a randomly chosen winner drawn for a  $50.00 Gift Certificate to Gina K. Designs!  You can check back at StampTV in the Big News Forum To see if you were the winner!

Share The Love! With Foil Mates!

Hey Y'all!  Glad you stopped by!






Today, we are spreading around some love, Gina K. Design way!  Along with Therm o Web! We have the new line of Gina K Designs from Therm O Web  and its oh so sparkly and full of love for Valentine's Day!  Or anytime you feel like sending some love!  :D 

For today, I have created some super fun and quick cards! I wanted to show how these products work without any stamping!  Here is my first card:

For this card I used Sweet Expressions Foil Mates and Bubblegum Pink Fancy Foils.  I cut the circles using Dies from Gina K and ThermoWeb also.  For the heart background, I did use some white foil that I had from ThermOWeb.  I then took some Distress Oxide ink and sponged it all of the paper, then wiped it off with a baby wipe that wasnt real wet.  IRL, the hearts are a shiny white!  I love how it turned out...Ill have to experiment a bit more though with this method I think!    

Now for my next card I used Background Love and Kisses  and more of the Bubblegum pink Foil  (LOVE it!)

For this card, used some circle dies and some dies I got off of ebay, that take forever to get and I dont think ill order again from there...(another long story I need to tell about!  LOL)  But this die was just so cute to put with these foils and foil mates...I had to use it!  Perfect for my Valentine of the last 36 years!  (hey, REAL men love pink cards!  :D)

Ok, thats all from me for today.   You should have came from 
 So your next hope will be the oh so talented

For today, we have the brand new StampTV kit, Hearts and Flowers!

Hearts and Flowers StampTV kit

This set...omg!  I am in love with everything about it!  And just in time for that Valentine you might want to make a card for!  ;)  Here is a card I created with this set that I gave a sneak peek on Instagram:


I made this card's background with water colors and then water colored the flower to match.  I heat embossed the flowes with white embossing powder first.  And trying to use some of the HUGE amount of sequins I thought I had to have, lol!  This flower is so fun to color though!

And another card I made using this set:





For this card I created the music paper myself, couldnt find any free online like I wanted.  Then stamped the little hearts, guitar and the sentiment with versamark and then heat embossed with a turquoise embossing powder.  That sentiment is flat out awesome!  LOVE that especially!  I can truly say I can say that to my hubby.  We will be celebrating our 36th wedding anniversay on the 22nd!  It does not seem like its been that long...but we do have a 34 yr. old daughter to show for it, lol!

Up next we have the new Incentive stamp (it's free with $75 orders!).  It's called, You Get Me:

ok, yes, you are seeing this card twice.  lol!  I forgot this was the card I made to go with the incentive stamp set that I combined with Claires new Geo Thanks set.  *redfaced*  BUT, dont this saying just fit those feathers?  LOVE love love every single sentiment of this set.  So many I will be sending  cards made from this set to!  :D

Ok, thats all from me for today!  I hope along the way I have inspired a few of you!  :D

Gina K Designs January Blog Hop Inspiration Blog hop Day 2!

Hey y'all!  Thanks for stopping by today!

Welcome to day 2 of our Gina K. Designs first release of the new year!  We have some awesome sets this month by our illustrators AND  new kit too!  So very excited to share with you!  As always, be sure and leave a comment as you blog hop along for your chance to win a $25.00 Gift Certificate from Gina K. Designs!  There will be THREE winners, one from each day! You can check the Big News Forum on StampTV a few days after the hops to see if you are a winner!

Today, up first is Theresa Momber's new set in the Framescape series, Enchanted Forest.

Framescapes Enchanted Forest


 Oh this set is just magical!  LOL!  Fun to stamp and create a little forest scene with too! Here is what I have for today:

I created a magical night scene with the little fairy hitching a ride on the moon to sprinkle her stars in the night sky!  (Can you tell i like telling children stories, lol!)  I used the new Connect Glue by Gina K. and it works FANtastic!  It grabs just right...not too quick, a bit of play time but then its stuck!  These are little tiny sequin stars and you know how sequins are a bit onery about sticking!  And the silver frame is from some of that silver papers from the Dollar Tree and it will not stick over a sponged area with scor-tape even and so I used the Connect Glue and it stuck! yay!  Only complaint, I want a bigger bottle!  haha!

Next up, Our newest Illustrator Lisa Hetrick's set, You Are...I LOVE the sayings in this set!

You Are



This is what I Have for today with this set:

For this card I stamped and heat embossed the images in black and then I used Distress Oxide ink to make the watercolored background. Stamped the 'hello' in the same oxide ink but I messed it up so stamped it with black to cover my booboo and to look like I made the shadow on purpose, Ha!
 And here is another one with this set:


I stamped the images directly onto some DP and stamped an extra heart to pop up.  VERY super quick card!  LOVE it!

Ok, last but far from the least is Claire Brennan's set Geo Thanks:

Geo Thanks
I have had some fun with this set!  As a designer, sometimes ideas just overflow your brain on certain sets...doesnt matter who it by, it just happens and this set is the one that did me this way this time!  here is my first card for today:

For this card, I was going for a stained glass look.  I stamped the feather image onto vellum paper with versamark ink and then heat embossed it in white. I then colored on the backside of the image.  I took the image of the feather and also stamped it onto plain white cardstock and then popped up the layer of vellum over it.  I liked how it turned out, so did another in the same way!  :D

I love it with the florals in the set too!  Done same way as I described above!  


Ok, that's all from me for today!  We will be showcasing the new StampTV kit tomorrow so be sure to come on back by then!
