Gina K. Designs Card Kit & Illustrator Blog Hop July 2019: Day One

There is so much to squeeze in these next two days! There are multiple new sets and a new card kit!

Today will feature sets from Melanie, myself and Lisa! These new sets are incredible! Here are the sets (and for the first time ever, mine comes with a coordinating die!)

Melanie’s Perfect Pallets
Beth’s Beautiful Balloons (coordinating die available!)
Lisa’s Your Wings
Fun idea: create a wood fence card

This card features Melanie’s set. I used a dark chocolate base and stamped the images in dark chocolate. I colored them with copic markers to give them a weathered look! Each board was trimmed and attached to the base. The smaller board is perfect to go across the fence. I added the hearts and sentiment! So cute!

Fun Idea: Use a light color ink to create a fun background

This card uses skeleton leaves ink to create the background. I used powder blue and christmas pink inks for the flowers/leaves.

Next up is my new set, Beautiful Balloons, which has a coordinating die. I am so happy with how this set came out. I love the mix and match fonts and the variety of balloons.

Fun idea: Use Melanie’s set to create a background in fun colors

This first card is on a dusty rose base with dusty rose ink! The balloons were die cut and then stamped with lovely lavendar, dusty rose and blue lagoon inks. I added a few gems to add a little sparkle.

Fun Idea: Use the balloon outline and color the balloons with copics!

This card uses the balloon stamp layered (using a post it note) on a Gina K. Designs white base. The card was colored with copic markers. Super Simple to create! The balloons could be colored for baby showers (pink or blue), graduation cards (school colors) or birthdays! The possibilities are endless.

Fun Idea: Use designer paper or scraps of alcohol inked paper for fun balloons

The balloons on this card were on a piece of glossy paper that I colored with green and blue alcohol inks. I die cut the balloons and then stamped with black ink. Sentiments were mix and match from the set too!

Fun Idea: Use some liquid pixie dust to make the wings sparkle

This new set by Lisa is so beautiful! I loved creating this butterfly using some of the alcohol ink scraps from my stash. I added some liquid pixie dust to the wings for some added sparkle. The body of the butterfly was trimmed and then I added some glitter glue to it. The sentiment was stamped in black ink.

Fun Idea: Keep your card simple using one layer

This second card uses a turquoise sea base which pairs so nicely with Gina K. Black ink. I stamped the butterfly and some additional images from the set in the wings. Finally, the other sentiment in the set makes for a wonderful inspirational card. I love the simple look of the black and turquoise together.
