Gina K New Release Blog Hop : Framescapes - Enchanted Forest, Geo Thanks, You Are

 Hello again! It's day two of our inspiration blog hops at Gina K Designs for the latest release. Today we are showcasing my latest set, Framescapes - Enchanted Garden, You Are by Lisa Hetrick, and Geo Thanks by Claire Brennan. That branch is from the new StampTV kit. What a great pairing!

 Here is another Framescapes - Enchanted Garden card. I sponged a background, then stamped the images. I used a Stardust Glitter Pen for the fairy wings.

 And here is another Framescapes card. I'm having a good time putting this little fairy on different perches!

 We have a fabulous new illustrator! Lisa Hetrick has joined our team and we couldn't be more thrilled to have her talent with us. Lisa has created a wonderful wreath set that has so many possibilities! I had a great time coloring her adorable flower image.

There are so many ways to use this set! This was a super quick card to make.

 Next up is a always fabulous Claire Brennan with her new set, Geo Thanks. Love the style of these images!

Here is another card with Geo Thanks. What a fun style!

Ready for more inspiration? Guess what? I don't have the link list. Oops, sorry! I am off having a great time on a graduation trip to celebrate my daughter getting her Bachelor Degree from Sacramento State University and I had to schedule this blog post before we had all the links ready. But you can find the complete list on Gina's Blog here.

Gina K Release Day 1 Stately Flowers 12 & Emma & Riley


  Hello! The team at Gina K Designs is blog hopping today to share inspiration for the latest release. Today we are featuring Stately Flowers 12 by Melanie Muenchinger along with Emma and Riley by Beth Silaika. I started with Melanie's Stately 12 for my first card. If you love flowers, you'll love this set. It's absolutely fabulous! I stamped one of the floral images several times on Kraft before heat embossing with white. They I colored in the flowers with Prismacolor Pencils. That fab sentiment just happens to be from the new StampTV Kit, Hearts & Flowers.

Here is another card with Stately Flowers 12. I just love these gorgeous flowers! I used Prismacolor pencils again on this card, then added a few images from my new set, Framescapes - Enchanted Garden. 


Next up, I have a sample with Beth's adorable new Emma and Riley set. I adore Beth's cute animal images. So cute and fun. I used Copic markers to color this image and overlaid it upon a sponged background. 

And here is another card featuring Beth's flamingos. I used both of the flamingos. What a sweet pair! Once again, I colored with Copic markers and overlaid the images on a sponged background.

Ready for more inspiration? Guess what? I don't have the link list. Oops, sorry! I am off having a great time on a graduation trip to celebrate my daughter getting her Bachelor Degree from Sacramento State University and I had to schedule this blog post before we had all the links ready. But you can find the complete list on Gina's Blog here.

Make Your Holiday Shine with Foil-Mates™


Hello! Today the Gina K team are showcasing the fabulous new Gina K holiday release from Therm-o-web.


I love these wonderful new Foil-Mates™ and dies!

For my card, I used the Festive Labels Foil-Mates™ with the Radiant Red Fancy Foils™ and cut it out using the coordinating Decorative Labels die set.  On the background, I heat embossed the branch image from the Peaceful Holidays stamp set.

Here is a close up so you can see how pretty and sparkly the Radiant Red Foils are.

I also made a gift tag using the new Tag Tidings Foil-Mates™, along with the Radiant Red Foils again. I used the other new die set, Decorative Tag Dies, to cut out the layers. The holly leaves were stamped using an image from the Merry & Bright StampTV Kit.


Here is a close up of this one. Photos just can't justice to how pretty the foils are in person.

Enjoy the beautiful projects by the team and then comment on each blog for your chance to win a $25 Gina K Designs gift certificate! To see who won, check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hop. 


Thanks for the visit. I hope you have a great day!

Gina K October Release Day 2

Hi there! It's day two of the new release blog hops for Gina K Designs. The team is featuring two new stamp sets today. The first is called Noelle Mouse, illustrated by Beth Silaika. The images in this set are so sweet!

I just love the little tree Beth drew, perfect for scene building. 

Here is the full image sheet.


Next up is another adorable stamp set, this one called Purrfect Christmas, by Chris Dayton. Yep, another tree. Yay! I had fun building snow banks by cutting white cardstock. That fantastic sentiment is from Melanie's Fabulous Holiday Labels set that was featured yesterday.

I used the tree again on this card, but added a sentiment from the new incentive set, Scripty Holiday. I also used the silhouette tree image from my set, Peaceful Holidays in the background. This time the snowbanks were sponged using Gina K Pigment White ink. 

Here is the complete image sheet for Purrfect Christmas.

You can find all the new stamp and die sets in the "What's New" category at the Gina K Designs online store.

Be sure to stop by all the blogs and comment on each one for more inspiration and for a chance to win a $50 gift certificate from Gina K Designs. Then stop by the Big News section at StampTV next week to see who won.
