Gina K. Designs August 2020 Release Blog Hop - Day 3

19 August 2020

 


Hello and welcome! I'm so glad you are here. It's Day 3 of the blog hop and we are continuing the new release celebration with the focus on the new August card kit called Peace Love and Sushi. Just a quick reminder that there is another $50 GC up for grabs today so make sure you comment on all the blogs along the way. You still have time to hop and comment on Day 1 and Day 2 if you haven't already done so. That's a total of three $50 GC for three commentators chosen randomly. Winners will be posted on the Gina K. blog several days after the hop.

Here is what you will receive with the new card kit. Believe me this is well worth the price!
  Click here to get yours today before it sells out!




Here are my projects featuring the new kit.


I used the "smooshing technique" on this card. After I smooshed my card stock I let it air dry then stamped the image with Black Onyx GKD ink. This set comes with coordinating dies but I decided to fussy cut the image to eliminate any colors that would go beyond the inked image.

So I'm not a sushi eater and only had it once by accident (never again)! I have friends that just love it but the idea of consuming raw fish just doesn't appeal to me. Therefore, I will be sending this card to one of them...lol! For this card I masked a small square and ink blended the following GKD colors: Key Lime and Lucky Clover The image was colored with Zig Real Brush Markers.


 
My last card from the kit was colored with Zig Real Brush Markers.


Spend $75 and you will automatically receive the new incentive mini stamp set this month called Take Care.



The August Card Kit is available for purchase at:

  5. All your cards are so beautiful. I really love the lotus card. I like the colors. I'm going to have to look up the smoothing technique. I can't remember how to do it. I really like the look. I'm with you on the sushi. I can't bring myself to eat it but your card is really cute. You did a beautiful job coloring the flower stamp.

The sushi card is also extremely vibrant... love the pink and bright green! My favorite is the lotus flower and I adore that sentiment.
