January New Release Blog Hop- Day 3

Hello, everyone! Welcome to our third day of hops with the design team for our January release stamp sets, thanks for coming back! Today we are featuring Gina's newest StampTV Kit-Hearts & Flowers! (It's like my favorite kit ever I think!) Be sure to comment on each of the blogs as you hop because we will be going away three $25 gift certificates to Gina K. Designs, one each day!  Comment for more chances to win! Check StampTV Big News Forum a few days after the hops conclude where the winners will be announced. Here we go!


Isn't this flowering guitar pretty?  I wanted a vintage looking background to go with this romantic image and sentiment, so I stamped the guitar in Kraft and sponged the edges to age it.  Next I embossed the guitar in gold on the GKD Black Onyx cardstock die cut. I had some heart eyelets that I knew would be perfect to add to the guitar, popped it up with foam squares, and then stamped a bunch of bold hearts in GKD Red Velvet swirling out and around the greeting.  These stamps are music to my eyes!


Next, what a gorgeous floral image and die! I stamped it in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it with Spectrum Noir markers. After stamping the greeting, I trimmed out the birthday in Dusty Rose cardstock, and popped up this and the flower on a White GKD Pure Luxury base.

I loved all these heart images so much, so I stamped a collage background on Ivory in GKD Red Velvet, Black Onyx, Turquoise Sea, and Innocent Pink.  I left a space to stamp one of the sentiments, and added the birds perched on two of the hearts. Cardstock is GKD Pure Luxury Turquoise Sea, Black Onyx, and Ivory.
Finally, I wanted to play with these lovely floral layering stamps.  I used Innocent Pink, Red Velvet and Black Onyx for the flower elements, and Jellybean and Grass Green for the leaves. Chevron patterned paper is from the GKD Bold & Blooming pack, and I used the Gina K. Black Fancy Ribbon to make a bow. Card base is GKD Pure Luxury Dusty Rose.

Finally, one more sample from me with the "You Get Me" Incentive Set. Love thee two fonts and the messages so I will be using these a LOT, as you've seen throughout our hops this week!  Here is one I made with my Stately Flowers 12 set. 



I stamped the violets in GKD Applemint and the colored them in pinks, for a subtle no line colored look. See the tiny hearts in the flower centers?  So fun for a valentine, and to go with this "you have my heart" sentiment!  

I added some of Gina's  Black Fancy Ribbon to balance out the greeting, and make it *extra fancy*.  Cardsotck is GKD Pure luxury White, Black Onyx and Innocent Pink. Sentiment is stamped in GKD Black Onyx. I just adore this little border of whimsical hearts that's included!  This set is free for a limited time, with a $75 order!

January New Release Blog Hop- Day 2

Hello, everyone! Welcome to our first day of hops with the design team for our January release stamp sets! Today we are featuring sets from Theresa Momber, Claire Brennan, and our brand new illustrator, Lisa Hetrick!  Be sure to comment on each of the blogs as you hop because we will be going away three $25 gift certificates to Gina K. Designs, one each day!  Comment for more chances to win! Check StampTV Big News Forum a few days after the hops conclude where the winners will be announced. Here we go!

The first set we are showcasing today is Theresa's Framescapes- Enchanted Forest. How I love these fairy tale images!


This is the first card I made with this new framescape.  I free cut a large round moon mask and then sponged over some GKD Lovely Lavender for a dreamy, evening sky and grass green below.  I intentionally didn't mask a horizon because I wanted them to run together.  The tiny star/fairy dust image is great for adding some rising/falling pollen/magic, take your pick! After coloring, and adding a few vines and the bold grass in GKD Fresh Asparagus, I covered the fairy's wings with some of the new GKD Crystalline Drops and dusted them with Gina's Frozen glitter before it dried.  Enchanted, indeed! I curved the sneitment on my block to go along the tree root and outlined parts with a white gel pen so it was easy read next to the stamped grass.


There are a LOT of ways to use this set, but pardon me while I focus on the perching fairy for awhile, I just love her!  I realized later I totally could have used the bold grass image under the mushroom, but it is easy to make a little patch of your own, too!  Dandelion is stamped in GKD Jellybean. I thought this pair would be sweet with one of the greetings "Hey Soul Sister"  from the new Incentive set "You Get Me". Finally, just add a little pixie dust! (GKD Innocent Pink) Card base is GKD Pure Luxury Red Velvet.
No automatic alt text available.

Next up we have this lovely set of wreath, floral elements and stylized greetings called "You Are", from our newest illustrator, Lisa Hetrick! So many combos to make and fun bits to color and watercolor! 

 Here I stamped the wreath in Jellybean, and then filled few of the leaves with a bold leaf in GKD Applemint. I added a heart, flower and greeting in Memento tuxedo Black and did some simple coloring with Spectrum Noir markers.  Keep your coloring loose and your markers look like watercolor!  I stamped the berry clusters in Red hot and added a few dots of darker red to them as accents. last I added some Crystalline Drops for shine and dimension. Card base is GKD Wild Dandelion.
Love these big "you are" greetings!  You can stamp them just about anywhere on a clean white base, add a few of the sketchy images, and bam! Your card is good to go!  I stamped on a few of the dot trios after coloring and accented with GKD Crystalline Drops. Love Lisa's style and look forward to more sets from her!

Finally, we have Claire Brennan's Geo Thanks, and I am really feelin' the chunky bold and delicate outlines in this geometric set!  I had to use all the hearts! I stamped a little rainbow of the bold heart in GKD Red Hot, Sweet Mango, Wild Dandelion, Jellybean, and Turquoise Sea, then tamped the outline over two of them in Versamark and embossed in gold.  Lots of different thank you greetings to put together, this was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black.

 For this one, I used both the large and mall heart and stamped them in  GKD Red Hot, Bubblegum, and Peach Bellini, then two step stamped their outlines in Memento Tuxedo Black. After adding the large "Thanks" and the smaller conversation heart sentiments to the centers, I added lots of GKD Crystalline Drops and glitter! Super sparkly in real life!

Awesome set, Claire!  I'm inking up the feathers next! :)

January New Release Blog Hop- Day 1

Hello, everyone! Welcome to our first day of hops with the design team for our January release stamp sets! Today we are featuring sets from me and Beth Silaika!  Be sure to comment on each of the blogs as you hop because we will be going away THREE $25 gift certificates to Gina K. Designs, one gift certificate each day!  Comment for more chances to win! Check StampTV Big News Forum a few days after the hops conclude where the winners will be announced. Here we go!

First up we have my Stately Flowers 12 set! (We are almost to the end of the series!)  It has been such an awesome journey, and I love the elements I've been able to add in addition to the flowers that will work with all the previous sets as well as being really versatile for other projects, like the mini calendar this month! It's sized with A2 cards in mind, and fits so many different orientations, die cuts and frame stamp images.
This is the first card I made when my set arrived!  (Shout if you love purple!)  These violets are so fun to color.  After stamping and coloring them with Spectrum Noir markers on Gina K. Pure Luxury White cardstock, I used two die from the set, popping up the center on my card. I offset it just the tiniest bit to let more of the Lovely Lavender mat show through like a drop shadow, it looks so gorgeous in real life! I stamped the calendar underneath in Black Onyx, then stamped the violet again in Wild Lilac along the sides to create fancy borders, and then tapped my darkest purple marker several times to create the speckles you see on the die cuts and mat.


Also sharing a sample with the lilac image (I used the lilac in last week's video).  No calendar here, but I thought using the days of the week as a border, as a decorative element or to define masked off areas that you stamp, would be really cool with the different "every day" greetings in this set. I stamped the lilacs several times, colored, and instead of sponging, used two different green Spectrum Noir markers to color the background. (Maybe a little fussier in some regards than sponging, but not as fussy as masking all those lilacs, imho!) You can blend the center area where the two greens meet with tip to tip coloring. :)  Card base is GKD Black Onyx.

I also wanted to show a few samples uncolored! I love the detail in all these flowers and how elegant they look stamped monochromatically or embossed.  Here I used GKD Pure Luxury and stamped the violet twice in GKD Moonlit Fog. Butterfly is stamped, cut out and popped up and coordinating strip under popped up mat is GKD Black Onyx. This thank you design could work just as easily be a sympathy card (Praying for you...) or birthday or wedding card (There is something to celebrate...) or anniversary (I think of you...) Yep, I'll be putting this layout in heavy rotation for when I need a quick CAS card!

Here I stamped the mayflower in Sweet Corn, Innocent Pink, Grass Green, and Turquoise Sea. Don't these classic images look so fresh and modern in bright colors paired with a graphic black and white chevron print? (GKD Bold and Blooming. I cut two thin strips for top and bottom so I wasn't wasting that gorgeous pattern under my stamped mat!)  Sentiment and hearts (both stamped in GKD Black Onyx) are from the new incentive set You Get Me", which is free for a limited time with every purchase of $75 or more. (You need this set, we'll be showing more inspiration for it in our hops the next few days and featuring it Wednesday!) Card base is the coordinating GKD Pure Luxury Turquoise Sea.  
This card makes me so happy (and ready for Spring!)

Stately Flowers 12
So many ideas and videos to come for this set! And I know our team will dazzle with it, too!

Next up, we have the adorable Emmy and Riley Flamingos by Beth Silaika. Love these feathered friends!  Here are two samples I made  one balancing and the other snuggling! So nice for Valentines, kids cards, sports themed, and just fun and friendship.
I used the tiny heart outline to create a border on the GKD Red Velvet card base.  Gina's Crystalline Drops make the hearts look like puffy stickers! Aren't these two darling?


This one I showed at the party. I covered their bills and hearts with Gina's new Crystalline Drops again for shine and dimension, great detail on these birds!  Chevron patterned paper from Gina's "Bold and Blooming" pack again, because I always love black and white with pink!  (When editing my photo I questioned whether it would have been better to point the chevron *up* to emphasize the spirit and visual of "stand tall", but the reason I turned it downward while creating was to use the "v" to make a little heart embellishment. Sticking with it!) Since the patterned paper is 6 inches square, I had a trimmed piece I was able to color a little heart over the striping with a pink alcohol marker, and then cut it out to line up  and pop up over the patterned strip with foam.  I love it!

Now please enjoy more inspiration from our creative team for both these sets!

Hello!  Today I am sharing a preview of my newest set coming out Thursday from Gina k. Designs, Stately Flowers 12!  What an amazing journey this tour through the states has been, one that started in 2011! (What??!  That's a LOT of flowers!!) I am so thankful for all of you who came along for the ride or hopped in along the way! :)
In each of the Stately sets, in addition to trying to honor these gorgeous flowers, I also strive to provide elements that will work with all the sets in the series, as well as be versatile tools for your other cardmaking and papercrafting projects.  To start out 2018, I thought nothing would be more appropriate than a mini calendar, sized with cards in mind! I know you will love customizing these for your own space and sharing with friends.  While optional for the design, I love the structure and elegance the frame from Fabulous Frame provides and how nicely it spotlights both the dates and the flower or other image you showcase for the month!  You can put the calendar above or below your image in portrait style also to vary your layout. Love it!!


Be sure to watch to the end of the video for another option for framing, from one of my other sets, Stately Flowers 11!  Postage!! Eek! With these two sets, you'd have six flowers for all the months. :) Just sayin' ;)

Support Asher!


Friends, cardmakers, prayer warriors, I desperately need your help, please read.  PLEASE help me lift a dear couple who are friends and coworkers of my husband, Miranda and Dustin, and their son Asher.  Asher was born at just 24 weeks last year, under 2 pounds.  After several months in the hospital, he was finally able to come home.  You can read about their journey earlier getting him strong and healthy to leave the hospital in the months after he was born on her blog: www.bigboyasher.com It was such a privilege to read her daily updates as they celebrated each small milestone and every ounce he gained! (I need tissues every time I read the letter on the first page they wrote for him after he was born.) Since then, he’s always had the health challenges a micropreemie faces in early development, but otherwise a sweet, happy boy, just like his name.  Then, a few months ago, he had a fall which prompted them to do a brain scan, just to be on the safe side. Unexpectedly, the scan showed a mass in his brain, unrelated to the fall.  Surgery to remove it revealed several more tumors that did not show up in the scan, and the biopsy revealed cancer. He is now 18 months old. The doctors are offering virtually no hope of recovery with treatment, and that his time is most likely short. That is really all the detail I can provide here, but they know I am sharing this. No advice or referrals needed as they've explored everything available thoroughly, but they are hoping for a miracle. Understandably, Miranda has not been able to update the blog  in awhile (as they have been getting second , third opinions,  spending every moment they can enjoying their time with him, celebrating Christmas early, etc) but it will give you an idea of their hearts and faith. Both being employed by the same company, huge medical bills and needing time off is also adding up, although the company and its employees have been amazing in donating their vacation time etc.  They just don’t know the extent of what their expenses will be or when they will able to get back to their jobs.  Three way YOU can help, anything is welcome and appreciated: 1. PRAYERS.  Please pray for blessings on this family and MIRACULOUS healing for Asher. Wisdom, comfort and peace in the days to come. That this family time is sweet. For God to reveal Himself in a mighty way.  The family  is also having a prayer vigil tonight at their church at 6PM and know that will feel the love and support of *every one* of your prayers. And keep praying! 2. CARDS. You can send me a private message if you would like to send a card or note to encourage his parents, and I will reply with their address. Thank you in advance for doing this, our wonderful cardmaking community always comes through! 3.  FINANCIALLY: Paul and I have decided to donate a portion of the proceeds for every one of MY stamp sets sold in the month of December to this family. You can find ALL my sets available for purchase here: http://www.shop.ginakdesigns.com/category.sc?categoryId=32 There is ALSO a paypal link on Miranda’s blog which I shared above if you prefer to donate that way.

We as parents have just been heartbroken for them as we’ve learned each devastating development and cannot imagine what they are going through, but are always humbled and inspired by their strong faith, hope, and gratitude, which has always been bigger than their circumstances. Miranda and Dustin are the kindest, most positive people, and know that Asher is already a miracle baby for what he has been able to overcome and every day he’s been in their lives has been a joy and blessing, always trusting God’s perfect plan for his and their lives. Thank you for reading. Please feel free to share this info within your circles with all who would help and pray, or may be going though the same struggles! #prayforasher #godcandoanything

Make Your Holiday Shine with Foil-Mates™

        

Good morning! Today the design team is hopping with some gorgeous ideas for all the new  Foil-Mates™  products from Gina K. Designs! We will be giving away a $25.00 gift certificate to one lucky commenter so be sure to visit all the stops and comment on each post for more chances to win! The winner will be posted in the Big News Forum a few days after the hop. 
No automatic alt text available.

Today I have a simple card and some packaging ideas!  My holiday cards are usually pretty clean and simple because let's face it, there are a lot to distribute! Hope this inspires what you can make when you need cards or packaging in pinch!

Here is a simple card using the Foil-Mates™ Tag Tidings, Decorative Tag die, and some of the White Fancy Ribbon.  I like to cross the ribbon on the back and then in front so that it makes 4 quadrants, which looks like festive package under the tree!  Tie on the foiled tag and and your holiday is shining!  Love the "...naughty or nice"!  The Radiant Red Fancy Foil™  is stunningly beautiful, like ruby slippers! You just have to see it in real life! Card base is the coordinating GKD Pure Luxury Red Velvet.

I used the negative pieces of Fancy Foils™ (Glittering Green and Sparkling Silver ) from my other projects today to wrap around these candy bars! You can do a simple Hershey's or make it a little fancier and not much more more money with some interesting flavors and the like!  I wrapped it right around the Godiva bar, letting the branded wrapper peek through (kind of a surprise, but also kind of a spoiler!) and secured with some Scor-Tape.  

Tip: Although I used the green side for the card I shared above, I liked how the back side of it looked better over this baby blue printed bar, still very silver and sparkly! So all the foils are kind of a "two-fer" when you are using up your scraps and negative pieces, fabulous and fancy front or back!  
Note:  You cannot make the foil underside adhere to the toner printed pages, I tried out of curiosity just to see what would happen!  Just wanted to share that if you were wondering if you could substitute a colored foil piece like red and make it foil the pattern with the underside in silver, know what I mean?

Finally, add a foiled tag (Tag Tidingsand boom! Greeting and gift, done and done!  This is a nice way to use your negative foil pieces without having to do spray adhesive to adhere it to more cardstock.  Cost effective easy  and very pliable wrap!

I also used the whole sheet of foiled Foil-Mates™ Backgrounds Ornamental Holiday, trimmed just a bit, and stuck it to brown bag with Scor-Tape.  The patterned sheet was slightly longer than the foil, so I centered it before running through my laminator so the black edge (the unfoiled pattern) would make a nice contrasting border at the top and bottom.  Add a foiled tag with Fancy Ribbon , and boom! Fancy bag and tag, done and done!  On this one I used the negative piece of foil and die cut a plain white tag to layer it over.  no adhesive needed since I pulled the ribbon through the hole!

Now let's see what the rest of our talented team has for us!
