Gina K. Designs July 2019 New Release Blog Hop Day 2

01 August 2019


Welcome back to Day 2 of the Gina K. Designs July Release Blog Hop! You should have arrived here from Hannah Schroepfer's blog. If you would like to start at the beginning, click here and it will take you to Gina K.'s blog where you will find the entire blog hop list. 

We have more inspiration instore for you today so sit back and relax as we showcase the new Pop Art Flowers Card Kit and a new set by Hannah Schroepfer called Main Squeeze.

We also have another $50 GC to give away today to one lucky commenter chosen from all the comments left on all the blogs. If you have'nt commented on Day 1, be sure you do so for another chance to win a $50 GC.

Let's get started! First up we have the July Card Kit called Pop Art Flowers that I know you all are going to love! This kit includes three stamp sets. That's right three, and they are all just amazing! A layering guide is also included. Here is what you will receive.


Here are just a few of the cards I created for today's hop.


I used the Funky Flourish stencil and Electro Pop Neon Inks to create the background. 


I heat embossed my image and sentiment and water colored it with GKD inks.


The background was created with Alcohol Pearl Inks on white Yupo paper and the leafy die cut images and sentiment were heat embossed with GKD Champagne embossing powder. 


The next set we are showcasing is a summery set called Main Squeeze illustrated by Hannah Shroepfer. This set is a fun layering one and also comes with dies that are sold separately. 

Here are a few cards that I had fun creating.



Just a simple one layer card.


I masked off a circle, added some ink blending and splatters of bleach. Flowers are from the Pop Art Flowers Card Kit.



The Sassy Stipe stencil from the Pop Art Card Kit was used for the bottom portion of my card as well as the die cut flower image.

Before you go I have one more card to show you created with the new mini incentive stamp set called Layered Eucalyptus. This stamp set ships free with any $75.00 order!  It will ship automatically without being added to your cart.





I love this mini set! The nice thing about it is you don't have to use the three step layering process. You can use just the first layer as a silhouette image. But for my card I did use all three steps.

Well that concludes Day 2 of the hop. I hope I have inspired you to create!

Of course you do not have to use the two step layering process. As you will see by my samples below, I omitted the first layer and they turned out beautifully!

My cards featuring this set.

 For my first card I masked off an area and stamped the second layer twice.

For this card I also used the Sassy Stripes stencil that is included in the Pop Art Flowers Card Kit and a die from the You Have My Heart die set.

I stenciled a portion of the Sassy Stripes stencil with the new Electro Pop Neon inks by Rina Krupsky and added a simple sentiment from Pallets.
The second set we are featuring today is Beautiful Balloons by Beth Silaika. This set has a coordinating die that may be purchased separately.
Here are my cards featuring this set.
I randomly stamped the balloons and added stars from a previous released set called All Star also illustrated by Beth Silaika
Quick and simple card with stars from All Star for added interest.
I love the way this fun card turned out with the multi colored outlined balloons. It took absolutely no time to create!
The last set we are featuring today is called Your Wings illustrated by Lisa Hetrick. If you love butterflies this ones for you!
Here are the cards I created with this set
The wings were decorated with floral images from the set with the new Electro Pop Neon Inks.
The background was created with one of the new stencils called Funky Flourish. I also used the smile die.
My last card today was stenciled using the Sassy Stripes stencil and GKD white pigment ink. (stamped several times for good coverage). I added a couple of leafy branches from Your Wings and a flower from Hello Beautiful. The sentiment is from one of the sets in this months card kit called Wrapped In Love.

For my first card I combined several images from the Vibrant Flowers stamp set and several from Bad and Boujee. Inks used are Black Onyx, Bubblegum Pink, Wild Orchid, Sea Glass and Soft Stone from Gina K. Designs. The perfume bottle was die cut and centered in the middle of my card. It is hard to see but I applied Liquid Pixie Dust onto several areas of the bottle and the diamond. It really shines at the right angle. Lastly, I added several jewels to finish off my card.
 

For my second card I applied Bubblegum Pink, Tangerine Twist and Sweet Corn Gina K. Design inks onto the Art Deco stencil which was angled on my card panel. The lips were stamped with Passionate Pink and Red Velvet GKD inks and fussy cut.The kisses sentiment was die cut from black fun foam. After all was stamped and cut they were adhered to my card with GKD Connect Glue, the best glue on the market! I again added several jewels for added sparkle and shine.

Gina K. Designs June 2019 New Release Blog Hop

05 June 2019


Hello and welcome to Day 1 of the Gina K. Designs 2019 June Release. You should have come from Mindy's blog. If you have lost your way and would like to start at the beginning click here to go back to Gina's blog

 We have an amazing release to share with you so let's get started. 

First up is Alicia Krupsky's new set Timeless Beauty. This one has coordinating dies that may be purchased separately.



Here are a few of the cards I created featuring this set.


Here is a quick and easy card to create when you are in a hurry like I am sometimes. You know what they say, less is more right?


I did the paper piecing technique for the woman's clothing with the Petite Flourish background stamp and the dress was colored with Polychromo Colored Pencils and Gamsol. The background was created with the Mermaid Stencil.


For this card I used the Art Deco Stencil for the background. Here too I colored my images with Polychromo Colored Pencils and Gamsol. I die cut my images with the coordinating dies and added them to the front of my card. Jewels were added to complete my card.

Next up is the new release by Emily Loggans called Have Faith.




The Thick Brush Stencil was used to created the background on this card. I stamped the sentiment in the center and created a frame by cutting out the center of one of the GKD large oval dies with one of the GKD small oval dies. I added a couple of flowers from Hugs and Wildflowers and several jewels as a finishing touch.


Alcohol Inks on Yupo paper and GKD white embossing powder is all I used to create this beauty!


For my last card I stamped the Sweet Camellia image in Passionate Pink and added a sentiment towards the bottom. The panel was adhered to a card base I created with the Leafy Stencil.

All the new products are now available for purchase at Gina K. Designs

Well that's all I have for today. Remember to comment on all the blogs for a chance to win a $50 gift certificate to Gina K. Designs. Gina will announce the winner on her blog June 14th.
