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.

The card which I made with Emily’s set is stamped on white card stock with a variety of pinks!  All my friends are turning 50 this year (and last) so I need to have some in my stash! I stamped the cake stand in black amalgam ink and then used bubblegum pink for the cake layers. I used pink passion for the sentiment, the numbers and cake layers. I added some dots with a copic marker to the 50. Finally, some pretty pearls finish off the cake!

Beth’s All Star

 

Sometimes when I create a stamp set, I just know it is going to be fun to stamp with it!  This set is so versatile – you can use it for everything from The 4th of July to Baby Cards. The set can be used for Holidays and for backgrounds, for teacher and coach cards and birthday celebrations!

Here are some of the samples:

 

This first clean and simple card uses Wild Dandelion and Jelly Bean Green. I added a few sparkly gems and used the sentiment from the set Sweet Friendship.  two

 

This card uses innocent pink and amalgam black inks on the background and white pigment ink on the black sentiment block.

I love experimenting with kraft paper and different color inks. I used the white pigment ink right on the kraft with the open star. I colored in the stars with spectrum noir markers in a variety of colors. The sentiment is stamped in white pigment ink on Gina K. black card stock.  There is a small gem attached to the sentiment strip.

This was Bella’s favorite card of the bunch. I used the open star and stamped it in black amgalam ink and colored them in with spectrum noir markers.  Sentiment stamped in white pigment ink on black card stock strip

Another Kraft creation with white pigment ink! This was done using the speckled strip from Lisa’s Today And Always set followed by adding some of the solid stars from the All Star set. Make A Wish stamped in black amalgam ink.

Now if you missed the the Facebook Live with Gina K. last week, here is a Here is a LINK  to replay it!  I shared three cards:

This first one is so simple – just randomly stamping the stars in amalgam black ink and then adding the sentiment.  This sentiment is from Sweet Friendship.  I used a pale turquoise spectrum noir marker to color in the larger stars.

This card features a square innocent pink base with a mix of stars from All Star stamped in moonlit fog and innocent pink inks. The sentiment from Sweet Friendship is stamped in black amalgam ink.

This last All Star sample features a bubblgum pink A2 base. The stars are stamped in sweet mango, bubblegum pink, jelly bean green and ocean mist. The sentiment is stamped in black amalgam ink. I used some cute bakers twine to finish off the card. four
