Gina K Designs –Fun with Fabulous Foil-Mates Blog Hop 

DESIGNING FOR

Hi everyone! Gina K and the team have received such amazing feedback on the new FoilMates, Fancy Foils and dies that we have decided to put together a special hop for you today! This blog hop is a blend of a video blog hop featuring tutorials from Gina K and a few members of the team and a traditional blog hop featuring beautiful cards from other members of the team.  

Over the past few weeks, the Foil-Mates products have been flying off the shelves at Gina K Designs. Please be assured that if they are out-of-stock, they will quickly be back on the shelves again soon. In fact, Gina just stocked the shelves with a fresh batch of Foil-Mates, Fancy Foils and dies and more will be on the way. 

If you are new to Foil-Mates, they are used to step-up the shimmer and shine in your card projects! Creating cards is never more easy and beautiful when you work with this new line of foil products. From beautiful pre-printed Foil-Mates, to stunning colors of Fancy Foils, when you combine them together the outcome is stunning! Discover how many various combinations of different cards and invitations you are able to create with Gina’s Foil-Mates products. With many of Gina’s most popular signature colors now available in foil, coordinating with Gina K Designs card stock and ink has never been easier! 

We would like to thank Therm O Web for being such a great partner in the Foil-Mates line of products.

Christmas Card Chllenges #13

Happy Sunday all!

Today is my last post as a DT member for Christmas Card Challenges. It's been fun creating and working alongside with some very creative ladies but my plate is full at the moment and I have decided to step down. So without further ado here is this week's challenge.



My card today features this older wood block stamp by Penny black called Christmas Wreath. It's an oldie but a goody and one that I use quite often. The background was water colored with Oxide Inks.

Now it's your turn. We hope you'll find time to play along with us!

Happy Stamping!!

ATSM Challenge #242 - Make Your Mark


Hello all!
 
There's a new challenge up at ATSM.



Here is what I came up with. My card features an image and sentiment from the mini StampTV kit called My Anchor by Gina K. Designs. I "smooshed" the background with wild dandelion and blue raspberry dye inks by GKD. The front panel was die cut using the double stitched rectangle die by Cottage Cutz.
 
Stop by and play along. We would love to see you in our gallery!

Life is Beautiful

Hello all!
 
Just a quick post to share a card I created for the current Papertrey Ink MIM Challenge. Laurie is the host this week and she demonstrates how to add a water color wash background to your cards.
 
Here are her gorgeous cards.
 
Watercolor Wash Backgrounds by Laurie Schmidlin
 
 
Here is my take on the challenge featuring Meadow Greens and florals from an older PTI Make-It-Market Kit called Nostalgic Notions. Gansi Tambi water colors were used for my background. White Nuvo drops were added as a finishing touch.
 
Thanks for dropping by and have a super weekend!
