Gina K. Incentive Hop: Tiny Textures




Hello and good morning! The Cast and Crew for Gina K Designs welcomes you to a special blog hop featuring the new Tiny Textures incentive stamp set from the May StampTV Release Party! We hope to inspire you with some beautiful card projects as you hop along to each of the designer’s blogs!
Incentive Stamp Set- Tiny Textures

Tiny Textures is an essential stamp set that allows you add a splash of something fun to your scrapbook pages or will help you to make a cool stamped background to your card projects. The “Just Because” sentiment from the set is ideal to add the finishing touch to a quick, but thoughtful card!

Enjoy the gorgeous inspiration samples from the team and then comment on each blog for your chance to win a $20 Gina K Designs gift certificate! To see who won, check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hop.




I have a video today for this hop! This "faux glaze" on the cup I created with the spatter image (doesn't that look just like those spotty multicolored drippy pieces of pottery?), and I also used it to make my own patterned paper mixed with the bold eucalyptus from Fill it With Flowers. I used the linen texture on the tag. This new incentive goes with *everything*, get it free now with a qualifying order (or for 10.95 when it goes into regular stock next month.) (Sorry I kept saying "Bahama" in the video, guess I need a vacation! The beautiful teal green blue is GKD Blue Lagoon.)


Supplies:
Gina K. Designs Fill it with Flowers, Tiny Textures stamp sets
Gina k. Pure Luxury White (4 ¼” x 11”, scored at 5 ½”, 3 7/8” 5 1/8”, 2 ½” x 4 ¼’, and scrap for cup and tag) Warm Cocoa (4” x 5 ¼” and 2 3/8” x 4 3/8), and Black Onyx (scrap) cardstock

Golda said...

What a great idea! I do love the glazed look on things, so I'll have to get the stamps and try it. Now, I do have to ask, the chain on your right hand, does it have meaning? You may have said before, but I didn't catch it.
