Gina K. Designs 2018 New Colors Release Blog Hop!

Hey Y'all!  Glad to see ya!


Gina K. Designs


Welcome to our little hop featuring the new colors that Gina has just released!  OHhhh my are they gorgeous or what??  just look at the gorgeousness:

The name of the inks:

Tranquil Teal, Coral Reef, Lucky Clover, Plum Punch
Key Lime, Slate, Sea Glass, Tangerine Twist
Ink cubes

full size ink pads




Cardstocks AND matching envelopes!  Are you in loooove?!!  I am!  I just love new colors!  The world could use all kinds of pretty colors in it , lol! And this ink, in jet black:


It works with most of our mediums we use for coloring!  I have only used with watercolor so far and it worked fantastic!

 AND FINALLY, Sandy Beach Ink in cube and full size pads!





And before I show my examples, just wanted to tell ya to be sure and comment on each blog for your chance to win a $25 gift certificate to Gina K. Designs!! You can check a few days after the blog hop in the Big News Forum on StampTV to see if you won!!  

Ok here is my first card for today!  I THINK my favorite color out of the new bunch is the Plum Punch!  But that is subject to change at any given moment, ha!


I stamped that sentiment first and its from Emily's new set, Lettered and Lovely  The flowers are from Lisa's new set,  Hello Beautiful.  I heat embossed the sentiment in white..and the background for that was created by taking the stamp pad and squish it onto some paper!  :D  I didnt even color the flowers because I thought on this design this looked best!  Whatcha think?  I can take it...hahaha!
On this next card I used the mini stamp set, You Make Me SmileYou Make Me Smile
 
I just played around with some watercolors on this one.  ALMOST through it away Because Shady decided it tasted good on the edges!  So I tore the edge and thought , hey I can make this work, lol!  The new color I used on this one was the Coral Reef!  It.is.gorgeous.  But then, I'd say this about all of the inks and cardstocks!  But they ARE!    Ok next, I made a shaker card!


For this set I used Melanies' set, Pressed Flowers 2. 
The panel that is holding the 'shakers' is the foil-able sheets from Thermo-Web that Gina carries in her store.  I did not foil this one, i wanted those vines to be black.  The die 'you' is cut out in 3 different colors and I offset them a bit, each color, as i glued.  The flower, I stamped it with the new Tangerine Twist ink and then colored using color pencils to do the shading with.  Super easy really!


I have several more cards, but Ill not hold you up!  haha!  
You should have came from  
 
 And your next stop will be the 
And anytime you might get lost on the way, just hop back to Gina's blog and that will help you find your spot!  :D  

Thanks again to all of you for stopping by!  And Just want to mention...this is my 9th Year for being on the Gina K. Designs Design team and I plan on having a little party on the blog toward the end of the month...with prizes!  :D  ...stay tuned.....

WOW your projects are awesome! I love the new colors! I especially love the Coral Reef flower that almost got thrown away, the diagonal tearing was a perfect save!

Sandy said...

I love all your cards. I think the. Torn edge is my favorite or at least one of them. I'm not an orange fan but that coral reef set your card beautifully. The other choice is the shaker card, I love shakers, But that Plum Punch looks better than I thought it would. So I guess I really don't have a favorite because they are all fantastic!
