Gina K. Designs November Release 2018 - Day 1!



Hey Y'all!  Glad to see you!

Welcome to  our Inspiration Blog Hops for this Release!  Where we hope to inspire you and  make you fall in love with these stamps like we have!  And as always, be sure to comment on all the blogs because we will have a drawing for a winner each day (2 this month) for a $50 gift certificate from Gina K. Designs!  Winners are usually announced by the Friday following the hops and announced in the Big News Forum on StampTV!  

Ok, for today we have 2 new sets to showcase for you!  Up first is Hannah's  new set, Old Fashioned Christmas. 


 Here is my card for today:



 For this card I heat embossed the image in white and then used some shimmery watercolors I have to paint the leaves and background.  Just cant get it to show all its sparkly goodness darn it!  The little white dots are actually white resin pieces glued on with Gina K. Connect glue (LOVE this glue!)  then layered with gold piece of paper that I have had for ages and this is the last of it...;(  Then onto some Cranberry Tart cardstock.  Really quick card for me!  :D

Ok, next up is a new set that you will be able to use with the Wreath Builder platform!




You know, this is one of the most fun to play with!  Seriously, with these new sets and the basic wreath builder templates, your possibilities are endless for designs!  Here is what I did for today with it:




For my card I also used some stamps for the Autumn wreath builder set.  Sooo fun to see how a design turns out!  I really like this one!  ha!  Only thing, my lips are upside down if you look closely!  :D

Also, a new incentive was release, Winter Flower.



This is a pretty little blue card I made using it:


For this card i mainly stamped the image and then heat embossed in silver.  I did a tad of sponging on the white flower and then on the edge, did some fussy cutting!   Super fun!  

Ok, ready for more eye candy?  Just follow the links below and you will be inspired I'm sure!
