Stamp n Foil Holiday Release Blog Hop!


Hello! Thank you for joining the Gina K. Designs team today in a blog hop for the new products Gina is releasing for the holidays with Therm-O Web.  Lots of fun, wintery goodies that almost makes me think it *just might* get cold here again one day!



 These two collections we are showcasing are limited edition, so if they strike your fancy ("foil", ba dump bump!!) , get 'em while you can! As you hop through each of the blogs, please leave comments for our designers about which projects excited you (we SO appreciate hearing what we've created for your inspiration makes you want to go make something!), and each comment will be entered as a chance to win $50 to shop with at Gina K. Designs! check the StampTV forum for an announcement of the winner a few days after the hop.  Now, let's go!



The first one is a flaky design with the Baby It's Cold Outside collection. The flakes are foiled with Turquoise Sea Fancy Foil, and two step stamped with GKD Plum Punch.  The greeting is stamped in Tranquil Teal (as are the flakes plus a few stamped off in the Plum Punch) on the White mat and then mounted on a coordinating GKD Pure Luxury Tranquil Teal.  The die cut flakes are popped up with foam squares. I love how much interest and dimension you can add when you stack the flakes on top of each other!



For this next card, I used the Holly Jolly collection.  Fun, ornaments and flowers! I did all my foiling first with Turquoise Sea Fancy Foil. Next, I filled in the two step with GKD Red Velvet, Dusty Rose, Lucky Clover and Jellybean inks.  I stamped the greeting in Turqoise Sea and drew on some fake twine to hang my ornament (red pen, then striped with white gel pen) 

I die cut the four pieces and popped these up over the cut and foiled and stamped light bulb border.  Card base is GKD Pure Luxury Red Velvet.



This last card uses Foil-Mates and stamps from *both* the Holly Jolly collection and Baby It's Cold Outside.  I think the flakes and flowers are fun together! and. I stamped up a few flakes and a greeting in GKD Turquoise Sea ink on Pure Luxury Sea Glass and then popped up the die cut and foiled (Turquoise Sea Fancy Foil) flowers and flakes. 

The die cut foiled pieces are two step stamped with GKD Red Velvet, Dusty Rose, Lucky Clover and Jellybean inks.  This is all mounted on GKD Red Velvet and White Pure Luxury.
Hey, did you notice ALL my foiling is Turquoise Sea today?? I can't find all my foils! I have a huge box of the Foil-Mates but could only find two sheets of Fancy Foil (Turquoise Sea, yep)  Anyway, I love turquoise with red, so luckily I was able to make it work!  I know the foil will turn up eventually, the way things always do when I've decided to be more organized and create a new system, which I then forget about, and thus end up hiding things from myself.  You, too?)

  3. Love it when I learn something. Making/drawing your own twine, I don't think of that. That turquoise sea with red does look striking. Pretty cards!

  47. Yep, I learned something (fake twine, love that tip!), I laughed (only having Turquoise Sea foil because the others are "somewhere", although I was just thinking how much I loved that color on all your cards lol) and I was inspired to get to work creating some cards just like yours. Phew that was a really long sentence hehe, in other words I love this release and I love your cards! Thanks for sharing :)
