CardMaker/Gina K. Designs Hop!

Good morning and thank you for joining us today for a fabulous joint blog hop with the CardMaker and Gina K. Designs/StampTV design teams!  Today we are working with the new Spring Parade StampTV kit.  I love all the colored cardstock and patterns in this kit, but since I have done several posts using those colors and papers already, and I know you will probably see several using them during the hop, I went with a different color palette of Pure Luxury colors, and the one mini stamp set I have not yet worked with in the kit, Sweet Friend with this cute birdie and branch.
I used my Copics to add a few accents to the hearts and leaves and Sakura glitter pens for some sparkle.  I hand cut the sentiment with scissors to create the speech bubble.  
Green ribbon is also included the kit.

Supplies used: Spring Parade Stamp TV Kit, Pure Luxury Bubblegum, Dark Chocolate, and White cardstock, green organza ribbon, Memento Rich Cocoa, Bubblegum and Grass green ink pads, Copics, Sakura glitter pens from Gina K. Designs, Copics, Spellbinders A2 Curved Borders One.

Now please enjoy hopping with the rest of these talented designers and see what ideas they have in store for you! Be sure to leave comments because Gina will be drawing one winner on her blog to receive a $50 gift certificate to purchase the Gina K. Designs products of your choice from the online store!    Good luck!  Happy hopping (and shopping!)


Next up on the hop is the the lovely and talented

Nice I also share with you something hope this helpful for you my friends Evolis printers can be considered a premier choice in terms of creating ID badges for employees, customers, visitors, and students in regards to both security and traffic management. They also work with a number of applications that are driven by access control such as high security areas as well as areas in which crowd control is vital, such as amusement parks and ski resorts.
