The final day of our Blog Hop this release ends with the StampTV kit….and it’s a beautiful one!  So many ways you can use these images.  Be sure to go to the other blogs today – you will be blown away by the Design Team samples!  I did a fairly simple card with mine.  I paired the kit, Springtime Silhouettes, with some of the paper from the  Damask Grunge digital papers.

Gina K Blog Hop – Day 3!

I have 3 more great sets to share with you today.  I tried to get a little outside my comfort zone with some of these.  I used a hat pin for the first time……not sure if I did it right, but I like how it looks!  I’ve never done a pennant/banner card – and I gave it a whirl!  I wish I had the Spellbinders dies to coordinate with Nina and Tami’s sets – but they will be in stock soon!

First up I have a card with Perfect Pennants by Tami Mayberry.  This was not an easy one for me!  I love seeing the adorable cards people make with pennants……but apparently that’s not my style or something!  I like the dots I used over the letters – and I think it turned out cute!  It’s good to do something a little out of box for a change though!

Next up I have my CAS card for the day!  This is kind of a stand-by layout for me, but it works so well!  I paired Cute As A Bug by Rupa Shevda with some October Afternoon papers.  I only colored in a bit of the image using Copic markers.  Then I added a bit of glitter to finish it off!  I think I’ll be sending this to Matthew some day soon!

My last card for today uses Lovely Labels 3 by Nina Brackett.  I don’t have the Spellbinders dies that these were designed to go with, so I just trimmed it by hand.  Not fun, but it can be done!  I paired it with some Amy Butler papers, pearls, flowers, and a hat pin!  I don’t know that I used the pin correctly, but it looks nice.  And how the heck do you attach those suckers?  I dimensionals and big glue dots……how do you do yours?

Gina K Blog Hop – Day 2!

Today I have 3 different sets to share with you.  One of them also uses another of my Grunge Damask papers as well.  Be sure to check out the other Design Team links at the end of the post for more fantastic samples!

First up is Make A Splash by Asela Hopkins.  This set is so adorable!  Adam used it for a book he is making for school this weekend.  I paired it with some nautical papers by October Afternoon.  My favorite part is the glitter!  You can never have enough sparkle!

Next up is Warm With Love by Theresa Momber.  I paired this with some of my Grunge Damask papers.  They matched quite well with Lovely Lavender and Moonlit Fog Pure Luxury papers!

And lastly, I have Bring the Bling by Melanie Muenchinger!  I paired Melanie’s Pressed Flowers with Bring the Bling for this card……and used a TON of bling!  Basically I stamped the swirl stamp from Bring the Bling and then used a Quickie Glue Pen and lots of little gems……man my shoulders were cramping up from hunching over this card!  But it looks spectacular, lol!

Also, the Quarter Sheets for the Grunge Damasks were added to the shop.  So if you would like the papers resized onto two 8.5×11 sheets of card fronts, you can find those {HERE}!

Gina K Blog Hop – Day 1

So we did things a little different this month with the Gina K Designs Release.  The Blog Hop is taking place AFTER the release of the stamps!  So when you see a ton of great samples of a set you just have to have – you can buy it right away!  A few things about this month:

1.  To celebrate the 2nd Anniversary of StampTV, Gina has a great little gift for her customers!  Spend $35 and you get this adorable stamp FREE!  See Celebrate In Style {HERE}!

2.  I finally got some new digital papers released!  It felt so good to work on these and I hope you like them!  They are available in both 8.5×11 and 2 sheets with Card Front sized papers ready to print!  You can find Grunge Damasks {HERE}! (I tried matching to Pure Luxury colors and included names in the paper labels.)

3. A new addition to the Pure Luxury paper line!  Wild Lilac – you can find it {HERE}!

4.  As well as the Celebrate In Style set, there is still a Buy 3 Get 1 FREE stamp set this month!  And it is absolutely lovely!  You can see Stenciled Silhouettes {HERE}!

So here are my samples for today!  First up is Celebrate In Style!  I also used two of the papers from Grunge Damasks.  I printed out the Card Front sheets (I use Brochure and Flyer paper from office supply stores – it comes in Matte and Glossy.  It also prints great on Pure Luxury 80 lb white or ivory as well!) I paper pieced the dress and popped it up on dimensionals.  A paper flower and some bling finished it off!

Next up I have a simple, one-layer card using Stenciled Silhouettes.  I love how this turned out – so sweet and clean.  I didn’t intend these to be the same colors – I made them on different days!  But apparently I like light pink a light green together!  Anyway, I dug out my stamp-a-ma-jig for this one.  The gray was inked up and stamped several times along the bottom.  On the last one, I used markers to color the one flower and carefully inked the other two with the gray stamp pad.  Easy-peasy!

Hello!  I hope you have been hopping along the Gina K Design Team blogs today!  We have got some amazing projects to share with you!  I tried to make something using as many different Spellbinders products as possible (just for fun!).….I worked 4 different sets of Nestabilities dies into this card!  I used Labels Eight, Labels Fourteen, Blossom, and Blossom Two(The Labels on both the shaped card and the sentiment.  The Blossom dies on the felt flowers.)  I used Labeled with Love for this card.
