Furry Friends Blog Hop! from Gina K. Designs!

Hey Y'all!  Glad to see you today!
Today, we will be featuring two new sets from Alicia Krupsy!

Frisky Felines Bundle (also available seperate)
Playful Pups Bundle (available seperately)
Both of these sets are so much fun to stamp and play with!  And of course, I'm a bit partial to the kitties...being known as the Cat Lady to some, lol!  So up first, is a card with the Frisky Felines set:
 

I tried my hand at no line stamping.  I used Prisma colored pencils and gamasol to color the kitty with.  You cant see it very well but the vellum piece has clear embossed paw prints across it too.  I think I do like how my no line coloring turned out...took me forever though I think, lol!  But do need more practice!

Next up, the Playful Pups set.  Here is what I did with that one:


I also used Foil Mates by Gina K. from ThermOWeb.  This doggy was, or I should say I TRIED to color him like all of the cute pomeranians out there!  My sister has one, and I know Gina K. has one too, Teddy!  I used the colors of those poms, red haired.  There are sooo many variations of poms out there!  Im going to be coloring a bunch of them soon!  For this card also, the closure is a fold over, and I tucked the top part of the card behind the little Pom.  Here is a pic:

and I also decoreated the inside:
I used the paw print and also used the fancy foils and fancy foil mates.  This card is a bit smaller than the normal A2 size, but still mailable (is that a word?? LOL)  I love making cards a bit different shaped every now and then.  And love how this turned out! :D  It s so fun to use stamps and the foil mates....makes it so fun to create with!  :D

Ok!  Dont forget to make the hop to all of the sites listed below!  A few days after the hop we will have a randomly chosen winner drawn for a  $50.00 Gift Certificate to Gina K. Designs!  You can check back at StampTV in the Big News Forum To see if you were the winner!

Share The Love! With Foil Mates!

Hey Y'all!  Glad you stopped by!






Today, we are spreading around some love, Gina K. Design way!  Along with Therm o Web! We have the new line of Gina K Designs from Therm O Web  and its oh so sparkly and full of love for Valentine's Day!  Or anytime you feel like sending some love!  :D 

For today, I have created some super fun and quick cards! I wanted to show how these products work without any stamping!  Here is my first card:

For this card I used Sweet Expressions Foil Mates and Bubblegum Pink Fancy Foils.  I cut the circles using Dies from Gina K and ThermoWeb also.  For the heart background, I did use some white foil that I had from ThermOWeb.  I then took some Distress Oxide ink and sponged it all of the paper, then wiped it off with a baby wipe that wasnt real wet.  IRL, the hearts are a shiny white!  I love how it turned out...Ill have to experiment a bit more though with this method I think!    

Now for my next card I used Background Love and Kisses  and more of the Bubblegum pink Foil  (LOVE it!)

For this card, used some circle dies and some dies I got off of ebay, that take forever to get and I dont think ill order again from there...(another long story I need to tell about!  LOL)  But this die was just so cute to put with these foils and foil mates...I had to use it!  Perfect for my Valentine of the last 36 years!  (hey, REAL men love pink cards!  :D)

Ok, thats all from me for today.   You should have came from 
 So your next hope will be the oh so talented

And as always, there is a prize for hopping and commenting on all blogs!  One randomly chosen winner will be drawn for a $50 gift certificate!  Wooohoo!!  You can check the

Gina K Designs January Blog Hop Inspiration Blog hop Day 3!!!

Welcome!  Glad you stopped by for our last day of the Release Blog Hop!

Welcome to day 3 of our Gina K. Designs first release of the new year!  We have some awesome sets this month by our illustrators AND  new kit too!  So very excited to share with you!  As always, be sure and leave a comment as you blog hop along for your chance to win a $25.00 Gift Certificate from Gina K. Designs!  There will be THREE winners, one from each day! You can check the Big News Forum on StampTV a few days after the hops to see if you are a winner!


For today, we have the brand new StampTV kit, Hearts and Flowers!

Hearts and Flowers StampTV kit

This set...omg!  I am in love with everything about it!  And just in time for that Valentine you might want to make a card for!  ;)  Here is a card I created with this set that I gave a sneak peek on Instagram:


I made this card's background with water colors and then water colored the flower to match.  I heat embossed the flowes with white embossing powder first.  And trying to use some of the HUGE amount of sequins I thought I had to have, lol!  This flower is so fun to color though!

And another card I made using this set:





For this card I created the music paper myself, couldnt find any free online like I wanted.  Then stamped the little hearts, guitar and the sentiment with versamark and then heat embossed with a turquoise embossing powder.  That sentiment is flat out awesome!  LOVE that especially!  I can truly say I can say that to my hubby.  We will be celebrating our 36th wedding anniversay on the 22nd!  It does not seem like its been that long...but we do have a 34 yr. old daughter to show for it, lol!

Up next we have the new Incentive stamp (it's free with $75 orders!).  It's called, You Get Me:

ok, yes, you are seeing this card twice.  lol!  I forgot this was the card I made to go with the incentive stamp set that I combined with Claires new Geo Thanks set.  *redfaced*  BUT, dont this saying just fit those feathers?  LOVE love love every single sentiment of this set.  So many I will be sending  cards made from this set to!  :D

Ok, thats all from me for today!  I hope along the way I have inspired a few of you!  :D

You should have came from Beth Silaika's Blog to mine and your next stop will be Claire Brennan's Blog!  If you get lost on the way, you can always click to Gina's blog and she will have the list up for you too!

Here is the list of my fellow GKD design team!  I 'm sure they have some awesome eye candy for you! Cant wait to see for myself too!
