Gina K. Inspiration Hop, Day 2: Genevieve Giraffe and Scripty Sayings

The Cast and Crew for Gina K Designs welcomes you to another fabulous blog hop celebrating the new stamps from the February Release Party. We hope to inspire you with some beautiful card projects as you hop along to each of the designer’s blogs!


Today, we are featuring the new stamp set Genevieve Giraffe by Beth Silaika and the incentive set “Scripty Sayings” by Gina K. Enjoy the gorgeous inspiration samples from the team and then comment on each blog for your chance to win an awesome grab bag of GKD goodies!!!  To see who won, check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hop.


 First up, Genevieve Giraffe!   Here I stamped the large heart balloon over and over and add strings.  Next, add tiny hearts to surround the balloons, and then after coloring, have fun adding dots around the balloons, for more color and atmosphere, like a big confetti party! I made this card with GKD Pure Luxury Lipstick base and Black Onyx mat, and pardon the balloon pun, but it just "pops"!!  A birthday greeting would have been an obvious and good choice, but I also thought, "What's up?" fit this one nicely. Yep, more puns! (I didn't write down the Spectrum Noir markers I used on this before putting them away, sorry!) Lots of the brights in each shade, though, you know?
Love a simple stamped and colored animal on a white single layer background colored with Spectrum Noir markers. Shadow is BG3.


Genevieve Giraffe- CLEAR

Gotta love beautiful sentiments on a clean white card!  Sentiment is stamped in GKD Red Hot, Sweet Mango, Sweet Corn, Grass green, Fresh Asparagus, Turquoise Sea, Blue Raspberry, Navy, Wild Lilac, Wild Wisteria, and finally Black Onyx!!


Here is another I made using the sentiment as a stem with A Year of Flowers 3
