Gina K. Designs 2018 New Colors Release



Hello and welcome! If you're coming from Melanie Muenchinger's blog, you are on the right track.Today we are celebrating the release of the new 2018 colors by Gina K. Designs. This release consists of ten AMAZING inks and eight new coordinating card stocks and envelopes. (The Black and Sandy Beach card stock and envelopes are already available at the store). So let's get started!

 New Color Names:

Coral Reef, Tangerine Twist, Key Lime, Lucky Clover, Sea Glass, Tranquil Teal, Plum Punch, Slate, Sandy Beach and the new Jet Black Amalgam Ink.

You're going to love the new Amalgam Ink. Works well with colored pencils and gamsol, alcohol markers and water colors. No need to keep changing ink pads. This one will not smear, bleed or stain!

Let me show you the cards I have created for this hop!



First up I have a card featuring the new set Lettered and Lovely illustrated by Emily Schroepfer. 

New Inks Used: Amalgam, Plum Punch, Tranquil Teal and Sea Glass
Cardstock: Pure Luxury White, Plum Punch and Black Onyx 




For this card I used images from the StampnFoil™ clear stamp set by Gina K. Designs for Therm O Web called Time To Celebrate. I did not foil any of the images in this card. It would of been a little hard to do with the balloons overlapping!

New Inks Used: Black Onyx, Key Lime, Sea Glass, Lucky Clover, Tranquil Teal, Coral Reef and Tangerine Twist.
Card Stock: Pure Luxury Sea Glass and Black Onyx




For my last card I used three of the cute images from a set that was released last year called Spring Fling by Beth Silaika. The sentiment is from Springtime Baskets by Claire Brennan. The front panel of my card was sponged with Key Lime ink on Key Lime card stock using the Daisy Chain GKD Art Stencil.

New Inks Used: Black Onyx, Key Lime, Lucky Clover, Sea Glass and Tangerine Twist.
Card Stock: Pure Luxury White and Key Lime.


The new release is available now at Gina K. Designs!

Altenew April Inspiration Challenge




Here is a card I created for Altenew's April Inspiration Challenge. For this card I'm using their newly released Leaf Burst Stencil which I am totally in love with! I heat embossed a sentiment from the Beautiful Inside stamp set and added a bit of silver thread behind it before I adhered to my card front.

Thanks so much for dropping by!

Gina K. Designs March Preview - Day 2



Hello and welcome to the second day of sneak peeks of the Gina K. Design March release. Today I'm sharing a couple of cards I created from new sets by Beth Silaika and Lisa Hetrick.

To celebrate this release Gina K. Designs will be giving away Three (3) $50 gift certificates to the Gina K. Designs store. You must comment on all the blogs each day of the sneak peek preview to be entered. Winners will be announced at the release party on Thursday night. Good luck to all!



First up, I have a card featuring Liam and Liz Lion illustrated by Beth Silaika. You will love the whimsical images and sentiments this set has to offer. Beth is known for creating some of the cutest animal sets I have seen and some of them are even named after her own children! This set does not come with dies. The lion was fussy cut. He does have a tail which I did not use. I felt that it would clash with the colors I chose for the leaves.

The die cut stamped leaves are not part of the set. They are from a set that was part of the January StampTV Kit called Hearts and Flowers. It will soon be available as a stand alone set so keep a watchful eye on it. It's amazing!


If  you like florals, Lisa Hetrick's stunning new set Hello Beautiful will astound you! This is the second set Lisa has illustrated for Gina K. Designs and you won't be disappointed. I'm a floral kind of gal myself and can't wait to see what she has in store for us in the near future!

The die cut "hello" and the word "friend" was also taken from the Hearts and Flowers StampTV Kit.

Hello! I'm back again with another card I created for the Altenew March Inspiration Challenge. While I still had the 3D Layered Rose Die laying on my craft table I wasted no time put this card together. I stamped the background with images from the Beautiful Inside stamp set. 

Thanks for taking the time to visit!
