I love the sentiments in the Gina K Layered Eucalyptus stamp set. I created this clean and simple card using obsidian ink for the sentiment and a combination of blue lagoon, ocean mist and sea glass. Starting with the lightest ink and the largest stamp, I layered the eucalyptus on the ocean mist A2 card base. I love how it slowly comes to life with the multi step stamping.
This sympathy card features the open triangle trees from Holiday Trees and the sentiment from Have faith. I started with a neutral A2 base and used some watercolor paints on a piece of watercolor card stock. The triangle trees were stamped with obsidian ink.
Clean and simple card that can be especially treasured by the recipient.
Hey everyone – Here are a few of the samples which I shared during our Instagram Hop
No sooner did I finish the first sympathy card when I got a text that a friend lost her father-in-law quite unexpectedly. This card features an ivory A2 base. The sentiment is from Delicate Damask. The flowers and other elements are from Made with Love . I used slate, lipstick, coral reef and moonlit fog inks. To get the splatter effect I soaked a paintbrush with water and soaked up a bit of lipstick ink from the ink pad. I gently tapped the handle of the brush to splatter it on the base. I recommend doing this before stamping all the images so that if you screw up, you do to have to start all over again!
The hardest cards to create are sympathy cards! A friend’s dad passed away suddenly and I wanted to send her a quick note!
I used a Gina K white A2 card stock base and the Autumn Wishes stencil using lovely lavender and wild lilac inks. I used the “with sympathy” set from Delicate Damask set. I stamped it on black card stock and embossed it with white embossing powder.
thanks for looking!
Here is a quick card which I made (two of) for Sophie and Bella. This was for me to write an inspirational note for each of them for their upcoming sectionals meet – which is the culmination of their varsity swimming season this year. They’ve been practicing 3+ hours a day, 6 days a week!
I used a Gina K ivory A2 base and stamped the sentiment first in obsidian black ink. This is my new favorite black ink. It makes all others look grey! The stars are stamped in pine and obsidian (black and green are the school colors).
Supplies used: Gina K Ivory card stock, pine and obsidian inks, All Star stamp set
Welcome to Day 3 of the Gina K. Designs Illustrator and Card Kit Blog Hop!
This first card features Gina K. Designs Metallic Blush embossing powder on the red velvet card stock. I used the small circles, open circles and the snowflake stamp to create a confetti type design around the Warm Winter Wishes sentiment.
Here is another card using Gina K. Designs Metallic Blush embossing powder, but this time on Gina K Designs ivory card base. Love the elegance of this color combination. This one uses a birthday sentiment, which makes this card kit so versatile!
This card uses a navy base and the Tall pines stamp set. I embossed with the Gina K. Designs silver embossing powder and love the look of the silver and blue together. This card also features the Seasonal Greetings Incentive set. This could be yours free with qualifying purchase!
