Inspiration Hop, Day 1: Fabulous Frame and Let's Talk



Good morning! The Cast and Crew for Gina K Designs welcomes you to another fabulous Inspiration Blog Hop! Gina, along with the Cast and Crew and Guest Designers, will inspire you with many beautiful ideas, and as you hop through their blogs, make sure to leave a comment on each because we will choose a few random comments and those stampers will each win a grab bag of Gina K. Designs products! To see the full list of winners, check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hops.

 
Today I have another video* for you with my set Fabulous Frame.  I hope it's back in stock very soon, it has been reordered!  Update: This set is currently backordered, which means you *can* order it now! It will take 2-3 weeks to ship, but no additional shipping charges will be incurred when your set ships.  Yay! (Check out my other frame sets if you like this approach to cardmaking, they are all winners!) Lots of techniques in this video: embossing, paper piecing, coloring, and masking!  Doesn't the embossed frame look amazing?  So excited to be able to create embossed frames for lots of quick but fancy cards!

Supplies:
Gina K. Designs Fabulous Frame

Gina K. Pure Luxury Lemon Drop, Lovely Lavender cardstock

Versamark ink pad, Memento Pear Tart pad and marker, Memento Bamboo Leaves marker, Spectrum Noir HB1, HB3 (Copic V12, BV02)

Foam squares, adhesive, heat gun, gold embossing powder, heat gun, scratch paper, scissors



Card base 4 ¼”x 11, scored at 5 ½”

Here is a single layer card I shared on Faebook.  The frame is stamped in Gina K. Black Onyx on Pure Luxury White and then colored with Spectrum Noir markers. Yes, you can color around the frame to look like you have a colored base!  Stamp the flowers directly over the frame, adding black to the borders will cover the stampe dlines where they intersect, no need to mask.  Tip: Color in the black borders last so you don't accidentally drag the black onto your flowers when coloring the flowers or edge of the card. :)

Spectrum Noir Markers: True Black, FS8, CR1, CR3, CG3, CG4 (Copics: 100, R22, RC21, YG03, YG67)

Also, I have chosen a winner at random from my Youtube subscribers, thanks everyone for helping me get to 1000 (way over that now, actually!)  Marianne Grimbly, you have won one of my very favorite sets (and yes, it has a frame), Inspiration Mosaic!  Congrats, and please email me with your address so I can send the set to you. :)  If any of you have not yet subscribed to my channel, please do so as I will have another giveaway soon, next milestone to be announced!
We also have Debbie Corbari's Let's Talk today, to go with all her Divas or just making fun whimsical cards.  So cute! I have a few friends I'd love to send "Say what?!" to!

Let's see what else we have to get the creative juices flowing!  Happy hopping!

Have a terrific day! 

*This demonstration took much longer than it needed to, I apologize for forgetting to add my flower to the center frame and doing all the embossing at once.  This will save you time! :)

Hey just tried to order this with the free shipping you quoted and it is no go it will cost me and you all too $6.95 to have this free item shipped to you I am not happy with this way of doing business .

    1. Sherry, I apolgize, the miscommunication is entirely my fault from paraphrasing the info Gina gave just before the hop posted, I see now how that was confusing and could mean something else. for free shipping on sny order in the US upu need to a qualifying order together of $50 or more for any products. This backordered set will ship later when available at no extra charge to you. Does that make sense?

    2. Sorry for typos, i have to reply on phone, for some reason I can't reply directly to a comment on my computer. please email or call customer service if you need further clarification.
