Gina K. Designs May Release Inspiration Blog Hop - Day 3!!

Hey Y'all!  Glad you stopped by on our last day of this release hop!

Welcome to our last day for this release of inspiration blog hops!  I hope you have enjoyed and that you might feel a tad inspired!  :D  And again, Be sure to leave comments on all the blogs because we will be drawing for 3 $25 gift certificates, one for each day!  More comments you leave the better your chances of winning!  And you can check back in the Big News Forum on StamptV to see if you won or not on Friday!

Up today is the brand spanking new StampTV kit!!




I  soooo love these kits!!  They are always packed full of images for every taste...to color, or solids to use all kinda of techniques on!  I have several to show you for today! 


 For this card I used Yupo paper on it.  Back when I first used Yupo, I discovered by accident that if you stamped on the paper, after adding alcohol inks, it would 'lift off' the color and leave like a ghost image.  That is what I have done on this card with some of the greenery from the kit.  I cut the circle area out with a die and then layered a lighter shade of green with the sentiment heat embossed on it.  I kept it pretty simple.  I added the stick pin of hearts for a little special touch.  I combine my love of jewelry making with card making when I can, lol!  This next card used the same technique, with the yupo paper.  I then turned around and did the 2nd generation stamping in the 'ghost' area it left.  THEN cut it up in strips before gluing to the cardstock layer.


And I have one last card.  I did some hand stitching on this one...trying to use up some sequins too!  LOL!  I bought a gazillion back when they were hot so need to use them up! (or wait a few years and they will make a come back, ha!)  BUT, I wanted to show you dont have to be an expert color - er , you can just stamp the images in ink, use same colors in cardstocks and in my case, stitching to make the flowers pop out! 


Ok, ready for more eye candy?   You should have hopped from the totally rocking 

 Arjita Singh's Blog!


So your next stop will be the totally awesome 





Thanks sooo much for the wonderful comments and inspiring words that have been left!  I appreciate it so very much!  YOU truly make it fun!

Wow. What great techniques on all three of your cards. You taught me lots today. I like how your stitching was the most on thebcard and you just used the same colors for the flowers but didn't color them in. Love that.

What great cards. The ghosting is very clever. I especially like the second card where you cut the design into strips. The sequins, oh my what a lot of work.

Love the Yupo paper. I have some and forgot why I bought it but now I can try this. Maybe a little tutorial would be nice.

Love the ghosting on the first card.
I have to get some of the Yupo. I've
never tried it but see it used a lot.
I imagine everybody has a lot of sequins
laying around. I know I do. Thanks
for an idea for using some of them.
