National Coffee Day!

Happy National Coffee Day!!! Today I'm showing a couple different ways to use the fun new incentive stamp set from Gina K Designs.

This stamp set is perfect for me. I live off of coffee! For my first card, I smooshed down Brushed Corduroy and Gathered Twigs Distress ink onto some Canson Watercolor Paper.

I trimmed down the panel and stamped my sentiment from the Perfect Blend Stamp set in Charcoal Brown Ink from Gina K Designs. This was then added to an A2 size cardbase made from Warm Cocoa Cardstock. 

I stamped the coffee cup on white cardstock with Amalgam Ink and colored with copic markers. I fussy cut my image and added to my card with foam squares. 

Copics Used
E37, E35, E31
W4, W2, W1

For my second card, I went for a more wintery feel. I stamped the new Snowflake background onto Bristol Smooth cardstock and heat embossed with white embossing powder. Then ink blended Blueprint Sketch, Broken China and Wilted Violet Distress Oxide Ink. 

I trimmed my panel down and die cut a circle from the center. The sentiment is stamped from the Perfect Blend Incentive Stamp set from Gina K Designs in Amalgam Ink.

My image I stamped out and copic colored. Then fussy cut out and added to the middle of my circle with foam squares. 

You definitely want this fun incentive set. Here's a look at the entire set! 

You can get this set for FREE with an order of $75 or more!!

Stamp TV September Kit - Gina K Designs

Welcome back! When it comes to snowflake stamps, I just can't get enough! This card is featuring one of the stamp sets from the Stamp TV Card kit from Gina K Designs.

Rustic Autumn - Gina K Designs

Welcome back and Happy Friday! Today I'm showcasing a card I made using the new Rustic Autumn from the September 2018 release from Gina K Designs.

I fell in love with this barn the second I saw it! I grew up out in the country on a farm and this brought back so many memories. I don't normally leave a lot of white space on my cards but this image deserved all the attention! 

I stamped my images onto Neenah Solar White cardstock with the Gina K Designs Amalgam ink. I masked off the barn so I stamp by trees behind it. Then colored with copic markers. I used the dot techniques on the trees to add leaves. For this technique I started out by just adding dots with the tip of my marker using the lightest ink of my combo which was the YG25. Then I brought in my midtone YG17 adding more dots but not completely covering my lightest. I tried to keep the darkest color G28 towards the middle and just adding more dots where needed.

The rustic detail on this barn is just heavenly! 

Copic Used
Trees- YG25, YG17, G28
Sky - B00
Barn - R24, R37, R89
Ground - E31, E33, E37

September 2018 Release


Gina K Designs September 2018 Release

It's time for the Gina K Designs September 2018 release AND a new Stamp TV kit is being released! 

I have some amazing creations to show you. I'll give you some previews and then I'll be sharing posts going into further detail of what I used to create them in future posts so stay tuned! 

I have a video to share with you how I created this card that you can view down below or HERE on my Youtube channel.

I'm starting off with the amazing new Mandala Maker designed by Rina K. This coordinates perfectly with the Wreath Builder stencil. I start off by creating a galaxy background on Bristol Smooth cardstock. I'll ink blend Twisted Citron, Picked Raspberry, Mermaid Lagoon, Wilted Violet, Blueprint Sketch and Black Soot.

I add splatters of white ink to create stars in the background. Then using the Wreath Builder stencil and Mandala Maker, I created my pattern. I am absolutely in love with this design! I couldn't cover up the center because it was too awesome to look at so I heat embossed a sentiment in the center. The sentiment is from the stamp set Something Good In Everyday.

Be sure to check out my video for more details on this card! 

Here is a quick snip-it of the cards I'll be sharing in the future! 

But wait! There's more!

Stamp N Foil Release!

Welcome back everyone! This post is part of a blog hop and is jam packed with inspiration and great news so grab a coffee or snack, sit back and enjoy! 

First, I am over-the-moon excited to announce that I am now a part of the Gina K Designs Design Team! It is an absolute please to work with Gina, the team and all of these amazing products! 

Today's blog hop is showcasing the newest release from Gina K Designs StampnFoil. These sets are perfect for creating your holiday cards! I have a video walking you through the first two cards of this post. You can view the video down below or HERE on my blog. 

For my first card, I created an simple and elegant glittery background using the Lovely Lace Stencil from Gina K Designs and Tonic Studios Moonstone Glimmer Paste. 

My poinsettia is using the NEW Stamp n Foil Holly Jolly Foil Mates sheet. I stamped the poinsettia with Red Velvet ink and the leaves with Lucky Clover ink. For my foils, I used Radiant Red Foil on the flower and SparklING Silver on the leaves. Then used the coordinating die to die cut them apart. 

My sentiment is stamped on white cardstock from the Holly Jolly stamp set and mounted onto a piece of Red Velvet cardstock using the Double Stitched Oval Dies. 

My second card in the video, is creating a gorgeous background using the Stamp N Foil Baby It's Cold Outside Foil Mates and stamp set. I used a variety of ink colors to layer my snowflakes including Powder Blue, Blue Denim and Moonlit Fog.

I attached this to a Blue Denim cardstock panel and trimmed off the edges. Then added to a white A2 cardbase. I adore this sentiment and font! I stamped it onto a piece of white cardstock die cut from the Double Stitched Circle Die. 

For a finishing touch, I added some White Jewels using the Gina K Connect Glue.

But wait ! There's More !! Here is a look at the new Winter Release, the NEW tape runner from Gina K Designs (eeek!!) and more projects I created. 

I couldn't resist an ink blended background. I heat embossed the snowflakes from Baby It's Cold Outside Stamp set in white embossing powder. Then ink blended Blueprint Sketch and Wilted Violet Distress Ink. 

I stamped my sentiment in the amazing Amalgam Ink and added a foiled snowflake using foam squares. 

Couldn't help myself and added some more white jewels to the centers of the snowflakes and around the sentiment. This is one of my favorite parts of winter is all the sparkle! 

My next card below, I randomly stamped the snowflakes onto Kraft cardstock using Versamark ink. I love how soft and subtle it is in the background.

I layered up my snowflakes by using foam squares. This is a great way to use the different sizes and shapes of snowflakes! 

The bottom snowflakes is foiled with Sparkling Silver. The next snowflake is stamped in Blue Denim and the smaller snowflake on top is stamped in Powder Blue. I also used Blue Denim ink on the sentiment.

Whew! I had way too much fun with this new Stamp n Foil release! I hope you enjoyed all of the inspiration! If you are still reading this , be sure to scroll up to the Blog Hop list and hop along for more inspiration. be sure to check out my video on how the Stamp N Foil system works!
