Hi Everyone – welcome to the Gina K. Designs Illustrator & Card Kit Blog Hop for this month! Today is day one of the hop! There are so many goodies this month that I want to give you a brief synopsis of what is to come the next few days!

Thursday, October 24: Day Two (You Being You, You Warm My Heart)

Friday, October 25: Day Three (Warm Winter Wishes Card Kit)

Monday: October 29th (9 am), Instagram Hop @beth_silaika

I know some of you are here for the prizes, and you will be eligible for a $50 gift certificate per day to Gina K. Designs. For the Instagram Hop there will be 2 $25 Gift Certificates. So stop by each Design Team members blog the next few days or their Instagram on Monday to leave a comment to be eligible to win!

Today the design team will be showcasing sets from myself, Melanie & Emily:

Holiday Trees by Beth Silaika
Holiday Trees Coordinating Die
Pallet Christmas by Melanie Muenchinger
Christmas Script by Emily Loggans

The first card uses Christmas Script by Emily Loggans. I watercolored the background and stamped the trees in both sizes. I stamped the star and dot randomly on the card as well. I filled in the star with sakura stardust. The sentiment is from Christmas Script by Emily! Isn’t it elegant?

Fun Idea: Watercolor your background and then stamp your trees

Here is a card with some non traditional colors for the trees, but it sure is Merry & Bright! The sentiment is Seasonal Greetings incentive set for this month. You know you want it! Just add Holiday Trees in your cart (along with some other goodies and this set is yours for free. You don’t even have to tell your significant other.)

This card features a moonlit fog base, stamped with the triangle trees in versamark and embossed with white embossing powder. I colored the trees in with copic markers. The sentiment is stamped on black card stock and embossed with the white embossing powder as well. A few red gems from my stash just bling up the card a notch!

Fun Idea: emboss your trees in white on dark card stock

**due to the large volume in this release, I did not get Melanie’s set to make samples. Her set is quite adorable! (add to cart)

Hop Details:

You should have come from Gina’s Blog and next you should head to Melanie’s blog! Remember that there are 3 days of blog hops this week and an Instagram hop next week. Swing by again tomorrow for some more eye candy! Let me know which card was your favorite one!

  1. Awesome release and great cards Beth. My favorite (although it is very hard to choose) the one with the non-traditional colours, so beautiful. Thank you so much for sharing and have a great day.

  3. Dear Beth
    Oh what lovely cards. Love them all and teh watercolor technique is new to me. Sorry I am a new crafter so most of the things are new to me. You know what i liked most about your post the words you dont have to tell your significant other half. I just burst out laughing as soon as i read it. All ladies share it in common. I dont hv a other half as i lost him to liver cancer three years ago. Miss him so much. I am going to bkmark your blog and visit again. Blessings to your family from mine
