Spellbinders Blog Hop

Good morning and happy Monday! Today the Gina K Designs team is doing another thank you blog hop for Spellbinders, sharing more samples of cards we've made with our Grand Calibur gifts! If you are following the hop you should be arriving from Lee Murphy's blog, but you may start anywhere along the way and see everything, thank you for stopping here! The card I made for today, which also uses this week's StampTV's sketch challenge, uses 5 different Spellbinders dies and I was able to cut them ALL in one pass on my Grand Calibur, then flip and emboss all five on the second pass, love it! I stamped my daisy bunch from "Spring Basket" in Vivid Coffee Bean on the Long Rectangle panel and then framed it on Long Scalloped Rectangles die cuts from Pure Luxury Creme de Menthe and Chocolate Brown. After coloring my daisies with Copics G21, YG11, RV00, BV31, BV00, and V17, I layered these over a Petite Scalloped Circle from Lovely Lavender mat, both stamped with my "Bring the Bling" flourishes in Versamark, which I then covered with Liquid Pearls. Base and Fancy Tag are made with the new Gina K Pure Luxury Wild Lilac.
Greeting is from the new Free with Three set "Stenciled Spring". I hope you can participate in our sketch challenge this week!! Be sure to upload your card using this sketch to the STV gallery with the tag STVSKSP19, good luck winning a set of free stamps!
Now please continue the hop on Sharon Harnist's blog and check out more stunning samples with Spellbinders along the way from the rest of our talented Gina K Designs team! Enjoy the rest of your day and I hope to see you again tomorrow!

  42. Melanie very nice card -- who you used 5 spellbinders on this one card and did that with one pass on the Grand Caliber and then did a second pass and embossed with the second pass. I'm impressed. Aloha from Hawaii.
