Gina K Release Inspiration Hop Day 1


The Design Team for Gina K. Designs welcomes you to another fabulous Inspiration Blog Hop!!! Gina and the Design Team will inspire you with many beautiful ideas! And as you hop through their blogs, make sure to leave a comment on each of them because we will choose a few random comments and those stampers will each win a grab bag of deeply etched, pre-cut Gina K. Designs stamps! To see the full list of winners check the Big News forum at Stamp TV a couple of days after the hops!!

wild flowers

Here is the card I made using Wild Flowers by Melanie.  This set beautifully coordinates with her Wild at Heart set (the flowers nestle inside the negative large background set) which is how I decided to showcase the set with this card.  However, the set wonderfully stands on its own as well! 

I stamped Wild at Heart with craft white ink onto kraft pure luxury cardstock and stamped the flowers with memento inks.  Then finished it off with the sentiment in black, layered onto black onyx and placed some brads in the corners. 

quilted butterfly

Here is another card I made using Wild Flowers for one of the Anniversary Challenges we will have all week to celebrate the 3-yr anniversary of StampTV!  All the details for the challenge can be found here.  I hope you will play along for your chance to win a grab bag of stamps from Gina K.  I used the new paper pack Parisian Garden on my card, isn’t it just gorgeous!  I had a lot of fun making this card because I love to quilt (with fabric AND paper-ha) I just punched squares from the paper 1 1/4” and cut those down 1/2” and arranged them on my work surface in a pleasing manner and then glued them (center only so I didn’t gum up my needle) and then zig-zag stitched with white thread.  Then I added a simple greeting a beautiful butterfly from the set. 

Next up is my card made with Masculine Tags by Tami Mayberry.  I love it when we add masculine sets to our stamping arsenal, don't you?  This set coordinates with Spellbinders Labels 22 dies.  I don't have those, but it was real easy to cut it out with scissors. I used Cantaloupe and Potter's Clay memento ink (rock 'n roll technique) for the focal image, some new paper in the Sundance paper pack a row of self adhesive nail heads for embellishments.  I used Sweet Corn, Ivory and Pumpkin Spice pure luxury card stock.

Check out all the amazing designs and inspiration:

Wonderful! Love the softness of the first one so much.

Kay S on 12:17 PM CST said...

All of your cards are gorgeous, but the quilt card is my favorite. I love the colors and am so impressed with anyone who has the patience to sew all those pieces together. (Can you tell I don't sew!? LOL!) it is beautiful!

Makiko Jones on 12:22 PM CST said...

They are all beautiful! Your use of colors are amazing!

Scrapacat on 12:40 PM CST said...

Now see... I would have never thought to do a rock and roll technique with a 'label' style stamp. You are brilliant! I love the first card - it's so soft and bright. I feel calmer just look at it. Great job!

Tami B. on 1:28 PM CST said...

3 great cards. I especially love the purple one.

Penny Reed said...

I love how you can combine the new Wild Flowers with the older set in such a great way. And your masculine card is not too masculine - could be either!

Oneofakind on 1:42 PM CST said...

the new flowers and wild at heart! These could become my new favorites. I have now on my wish list.

Sharon on 2:08 PM CST said...

Your first card with the Wild Flowers is just beautiful! Like the quilting on the 2nd card. Great colors and paper on the masculine card.

scrappinmommom on 6:16 PM CST said...

Your flower card is beautiful, what a labor of love in the purple and lavender card. Awesome masculine card.

KonaRose on 6:50 PM CST said...

Dearest Donna! How are you my friend? I sure hope you add a type of hangar to the backs of these cards so the recipients can hang them on a nearby wall - they are ART work :) esp the quilt!!! I know that took some work, but look how it turned out! And the pp for the 2nd card reminds me of the new African animal stamp set by Theresa, kind of giraffy. But you show we can fussy cut the tag cause the $$$ sure do add up during a Release Party! TFS - love 'em

Sheila on 8:19 PM CST said...
