Gina K. Designs Card Kit & Illustrator Blog Hop June 2019 Day 2

The second day of the blog hop features so much stuff you are going to go crazy! I am hoping that by using this card it will warm Upstate New York, which has been freezing lately!

Ocean Minded Card Kit!

Whimsical Wildflower Frame – Hannah Schroepfer
Fun Idea: Use alcohol inks to make an “under the sea” background

This card features the sentiment and the wave stamp from the card kit. I thought it looked like coral on this background! The sentiment is stamped in Gina K. black amalgam ink.

Fun Idea: Create a fun summer background with watercolors

I used some watercolor paints to create a fun background. The base is a sweet corn A2 card. Images stamped in Gina K. black amalgam ink.

Fun Idea: Sing Zac Brown Band’s Toes in the Water while looking at this card!

This super quick card features the footprints and the sentiment, which totally reminds me of a Zac Brown Song (Toes in the water). The Gina K. ink for the footprints is Sandy Beach and the sentiment is Charcoal Brown.

Fun Idea: Try your best to create a watercolor background that looks like a wave

This A2 Sea Glass background has a watercolor main image. The sentiment is from the Ocean Minded Card kit. The sentiment was stamped with Gina K. black amalgam ink.

Fun Idea: Use the Mermaid Scales stencil to create the perfect background for mermaid cards

This card uses the Mermaid Scales stencil with (LCBB) using Ocean Mist, Turquoise Sea and Blue Lagoon. Vicky Mermaid works perfect with this stenciled background! The sentiment from the card kit is stamped in white ink on black card stock. I used a few tear drop gems using connect glue.

Fun Idea: add sequins to create a little bling next to your sentiment

This card features more alcohol ink backgrounds. Hannah’s set had a variety of sentiments which work so well alone with pretty backgrounds. A trifecta of sequins makes the gold leaf on the alcohol ink really pop.

Fun Idea: Frame your sentiment on the top and bottom with the floral images.

This card is an A2 Dusty Rose base with a layer of Gina K. White layering card stock. I stamped the images and colored with copic markers.
