Gina K. Designs September 2018 Inspiration Blog Hop, Day 3!!!

Hey Y'all!  Happy to see you!

Welcome to our final day for this months release!  And we are going out with a bang so to speak, lol!  It's the new StampTV Kit, Fruit of the Season!  Its sooo awesome!  I am in LOVE with the snowflakes!  Ive never had any that I am this crazy about, lol!  Ok, Enough babbling! BUT, one more thing, be sure to leave your comments on all the blogs!  We will have a $50 gift certificate winner from each day!  Three total!  ...ok, NOW on the the show!

These sets are so awesome, truly!  You get so much for your money!  First, showing you the card I showed at the release party:

For this card I heat embossed the big snowflake image in white.  I then used the brand new snowflake background stamp Delicate Snowflakes (sold out atm!, so sorry!)  and heat embossed it with clear.  I then used distress crayons and my finger haha!  It makes the best paintbrush!  This is a Billy's pick of the release!  :D  Thats one reason showing this again!  Ok, now, more snowflakes!

For this card I cut out a tree shape with a die ive had like forever (no clue where I got it from either lol) and then I used the throw away part to create a mask.  I then stamped the snowflakes in gold, silver and white...sponged the eges after laying the die back over the tree.  I stuck some little red rhinestones and another snowflake charm for the tree topper!  I was actually inspired by some ribbon I saw at hobby Lobby i believe it was!  who would have thought black could be used for Christmas?  :D  ok, one more snowflake card:

This one is basically along the same lines as the first one I shared with you, white embossed big snowflake, then the background snowflake stamp used but not with versamark, i used Powder Blue ink on Powder Blue cardstock.  I used another snowflake charm there too!  Since I work making lots of jewelry, i love being able to add some elements to my card creations like this!  Ok, ONE last card:

LOVE the partridge in a pear tree!  I also used the Music Medley background stamp.  I scribbled the distress crayons then spritz it with water and let it just sit there.  All of the other images were watercolored too...which I am NOT very good at! ha!  still enjoy playing with it and thats what matters right?

ok, ready from some awesome eye candy I'm sure!  Just follow the links below!

 thanks so much for letting us share this release with you!  We always hope you leave being totally inspired to make something beautiful!  Make ART!

Gina K. Designs September Release Inspiration Blog Hop, Day 2!!

Hey Y'all!  Glad to see you!  :D

Welcome to the 2nd day of this month's blog hop!  Super excited to share these sets this time...LOVE this time of year!  Today we have two more sets to showcase for you, hopefully make you wanna get all creative with them too!  :D  And as always, be sure to leave a comment on all the blogs, which if you comment on each one, it betters your chance of winning! ;)  We will be giving away a $50 gift certificate for each day, THREE of them! yay! Ok, enough yadayada from me!  On to the good stuff!

Up first today we have Theresa Momber's set, Rustic Autumn

LOVE that barn!  And actually, the shape of it is how my grand parents barn was!  So it REALLY brought back memories!  Milk cow kicking me on my leg, horse biting my butt...lmbo!  But it was such sweet awesome memories!  Here is what I have done with this set:

I was going for a 'postcard' feel to it.  I stamped the barn, then after coloring i cut the sides and top of the image out.  (if the blue sky wasnt in the background you would see the inside of the card)  I then created a sky panel to go behind the barn image with the stamped trees from the set.  I can almost smell the Autumn air!  ha!  And then I did a bit of paper piecing on them pumpkins:

This is a CAS on my beloved kraft cardstock!  I hand drew that frame and then masked off before stamping the tree.  Tied a bit of twine in a bow and stick it to it with that awesome Connect Glue and was done!  Seriously, its HARD for me to do a CAS card so I kinda like this one!  :D Oh and i did ONE more, haha...

Couldnt resist those little sunflowers!  I also used the Elegant Script background stamp on this too (OMG loving our new background stamps!!)  This card just screams HAPPY to me!

Ok, up next is Lisa Hetrick's set, Something Good in Everyday
Look at all of the fun  elements in this set!  I love sets like this, when you have so many ways it can be used...makes your purchase even better!  :D  Here is what I have done for today with this set:

I had intended for this card to be one using that new Alcohol Lift Ink, but it failed, lol!  SOoooo I saved it by just smearing and blending colors around, LOL!  The flower is stamped on Tranquil Teal cardstock in white and then heat embossed with white also, as is the sentiment on vellum.  I wish I had of added a bit of distressing on the image panel though, I think that would have added to it, lol!  ahhh well, we are our worse critics, right?  :D  Ok, I have one more with this set:

I stamped the tree ring and cut it out and then just layered some of the leaves and the flower and the sentiment all haphazardly on it.  I dug up and old, OLD corner punch and used it and seems to kinda fit with this card I think!  Ok, ready for some awesome eye candy?  ME TOO!  I always love seeing what my fellow DT make, it truly inspires me too!  Here are  the links...dont forget to comment!

 Thanks so very much for the sweet comments and compliments yesterday!  I truly love reading them and seeing them all!  Come on back tomorrow for another day of inspiration for you!  It's the new StampTV kit! woohooo!

Gina K. Designs September 2018 Release Inspiration Blog Hops! Day 1

Hey Y'all!  Glad you stopped by!

Welcome to our September Release!  I LOVE this time of year, so goes along with me loving this release maybe a tad more  thank other release, lol!  (I admit, I do love them reason I have stayed around for oh almost 10 years!  :D )  We all are so very excited to share our creations with you for this release!  We will be giving away a $50 gift certificate to one lucky commenter from each day! total of three winners! Be sure to check the Big News forum on StampTV a few days after the hops to see the winners.   Ok now for what you came here for!!  :D

Up first today Melanie's set, Men Of Faith

 Here is what I have done with this set:

When first seeing this set, I knew I had to put a cross charm in his hands!  I stamped the image with versamark, then heat embossed in clear.  All done on Kraft cardstock form Gina K. of course!  Now this next card, I debated whether to show or not because Billy said it looked like the dude was in prison...haha!  Here it is though:

I little different view trying to show the inside:

Thats chicken wire, not jail bars!  LOL! This was made by stamping with silver ink and heat embossing the words and then cutting them out to add in this manner.  But I personally think, its ok maybe?  :D

Ok, next up is a set by Rina, Mandala Maker
This awesome set can be used with the Wreath Maker, but it can also be stamped free hand in OH SO MANY WAYS!

  Omg ive only barely touched the surface in creating with this set!  For this, I colored in some of the details with white gel pen and a gold marker also.  I cut out a few of the leafy looking images and inserted some red cardstock to give it some pop!  Added a bit more red accents and called it done!  so fun!!

Ok, ready for more eye candy?  Just follow the links below to my fellow DT!!

  That's all from me for today!  Be sure to come on back by tomorrow, same time, same place!  Got lots more of this release to share with you!!
