Gina K. Designs June 2020 Release Inspiration Blog Hop -- Day 3!!

Hey Y'all!  Glad you stopped by!

Welcome to day three of this month's release!  So glad you made it here and hope you have been enjoying the inspiration and eye candy!  Today we have the brand spanking new StampTV Kit called, Nature's Touch.  These kits are such a bargain and right now, it is sold out, but for the first time, with everything being kinda crazy right now, for the first time Gina has reordered a BUNCH and will be selling these as a KIT again!  YAY!!  Time frame of arrival she said is 2-3 weeks and just hit the notify me button on the page of the kit (where you would normally 'add to cart') and you will receive and email when they go back into stock. Awesome huh?!  But I sure hope you will still enjoy our hop today and dont forget to leave a comment on  all the blogs for your chance to win a $50 gift certificate! 

You should have started your hop on  Gina's Blog!

Ok, lets go!

First, just look at all this awesomeness!

Three stamp sets?  a Stencil?  Dies?  Paper?  YES!!!  Here is one of my cards for today:

I stamped the focal image with distress inks and lightly spritz it with water to make it 'bleed'.  then after drying it I used the Square Mandala stencil and inked around the image.  I stamped the sentiment, messed it up, so had to cover it with the 'so much' that I stamped on a strip of paper and popped it up slightly.  It was a bit trickly getting the 'y' stamped on the strip too, but i did it, lol!  sometimes booboos add to it in a GOOD way, ha!  

And here is another one:
For this card I Heat embossed the hands with clear embossing powder after stamping in black.  I used the new Master Layout dies on this card, for the designer paper too which that is from the Bold and Blooming designer Paper pack. It went perfect with the heart hands to me!  This goes to B on Father's Day this sunday!  Inside I wrote all the mushy stuff about him being our one and only's Dad!  :D  

And ONE more I wanted to share:

For this card, well, let me show you the booboo I did on THIS one, haha!

Can you see what I did?  After using the stencil and white ink, then stamping the flower image, All i really had left to do is stamp the sentiments.....wellllll, got that one upside down there didnt i?  haha!  Soooo, decided to stamp the 'happy' and cut it out with the new oval dies in the Master Layout die set (which are also backordered and same time frame to be here!) Sooo THEN had to stamp the flower and pop it up over the oval part because it looked funny with part of the flower under it.!  So, dont give up on the booboos!  you see what a time I had!!  And I think they turned out pretty good, lol!  

Ok, that's all from me this time!  Next up on your hop is the ohsoawesome.............

Also, thanks again for the sweet comments and love yall left!  It truly makes my day and makes it fun!  

Here is a card I showed on our FaceBook page too!

Gina K. Designs June 2020 Release Inspiration Blog Hop -- Day 2!!

Hey Y'all!  Welcome!

Welcome to day 2 of this month's Gina K. Design's release!  Glad you stopped by today!  We have a total of FOUR sets to showcase today for you!  AND as always, be sure to leave comments on all the blogs for your chance to win a $50 gift certificate which will be announced by Gina a few days after the hops on her blog!  Ok, ready?  Let's get going!

Up first for today I have two sets by Emily Loggans called Baby Boy and Baby Girl

And my first card I used the Baby Boy set:
Ive been loving that kraft lately havent i?  LOL!  I did a CAS card, cut some strips in various blue colors of GKD cardstock and to help me align them I scored at1/4" intervals and then just glued them on.  Stamped the sentiment and tied the bow and tada!  all done!  I added a strip on the inside , just to insert a gift card, super simple!  And now the Baby Girl set:
For this card, I also used the Master Layout and oval dies and for the stripes on this one I just used the ink pads in various purple shades and swiped them direct to the paper to create them.  I fussy cut that little flower and kept it simple too, no coloroing, lol!  See the little purple clay heart in the bottom right corner?  From the new embellishments!  LOVING those!  And the center of the flower has one of the dazzling rhinestones! 

Next up is the new set by Hannah DrapinkskiGraceful Greenery
Here is my card for today with this set:
I stamped the main image and then colored some of the flowers and fussy cut them and glued them around the greenery.  I love how it turned it, just the look i wanted!  But goes to show you dont have to coloring ALL of it if you arent a 'colorerer' haha!  Like me! I so love this sentiment too! 

Up next is a new set by  Lisa HetrickFree To Flourish
AND matching dies!

And my card for today with this one:

For this card I created a watercolor background on the image panel that looked like a canvas all hanging to me!  I then gold heat embossed the arrows and cut those out with the matching dies and the flower and greenery also used the dies on.  i fussy cut the hanging part, why I dont know, just looked better to me for what I was going for, lol!  The sentiment I just stamped on a strip of paper and dove-tailed the ends and glued it on!  I used twine and a brad to make it look like it was hanging (or I hope, lol).  How fun is  this set?? 

Ok, next up on your hop is the ohsoawesome.......................

Ok, first up today we have Melanie Muenchinger's newest set, Macramade With Love and Macramade With Love Die Set

And here is what I have done with this set for today:
This set sure took me back to the '70s!  I was all into doing macramade stuffs!  and now you are seeing it everywhere again and oh the combos you can make in this set!  LOTS easier , ha!  and I love this sentiment!  Just made a CAS card with this and kept it sorta masculine for the men in my life that I might need to mail this to!  I also used the brand new dies Master Layout Die set
Totally loving having this set!  Perfect cuts everytime!  Just me lining it up sometimes still the problem, haha!  But this sure makes it lots better because you know how those trimmers can be.

Up next is a new set by Beth Silaika called, Let's Celebrate
Look at all those fun words in this one!  Not to mention the confetti!  Here is what I have done for today!
I just spritzed the background I created with some Distress oxide inks, then sprinkled some water with glitter, but you can see the sparkle, i tried and tried to capture that, darn it! I didnt make one, but i think this would be awesome to use on a shaker card AND Gina has the perfect stuffs you can put in a shaker card too!  Look at these new goodies!
Plus the sequins already that she carries!!  FUN fun stuff!
