Gina K. Designs Card Kit and Illustrator Blog Hop June 2019: Day One

Today is day one of the June 2019 Gina K. Designs Card Kit and Illustrator Blog Hop. There will be so many cards featured over the next two days! Be sure to stop back tomorrow!

Timeless Beauty – Alicia Krupsky
Have Faith – Emily Loggans
Fun Idea: Add some sparkle to the perfume bottle to make it look crystalized!

This card is a 4.25 square, stamped with Gina K. black amalgam ink. I used some copic markers to fill the bottle and added some stickles glitter glue on the bottle to make it appear crystal.

Fun Idea: Use alcohol inks and a gold leaf pen for a one-of-a-kind background.

This card was created with alcohol inks and a gold leaf pen! I paper pieced the lipstick from the Timeless Beauty set and added Sparkle and Shine from the Sunshine Mini Set.

Fun Idea: Mix and match sets to expand your collection to endless possible combinations

I used the Gina K. leafy stencil with some skeleton leaves ink with the butterfly from Elegant Asters with Gina K. black amalgam ink. I used the sentiment from Emily’s set. The butterfly is colored with copics.

Fun idea: use a stencil to create endless background possibilities!

This kraft card base used kraft ink and the stenciled with the Sun Spots stencil using LCBB. The sentiment is from Emily’s new set, using black ink. I used a few strips of black card stock to complete the card.

Fun Idea: Pop up your images with foam squares to make them float off the card

This card uses the Gina K. leafy stencil with Gina K. whisper ink. The sentiment is in black and the Elegant Asters butterfly colored with copic markers.

Fun Idea: Create tons of backgrounds using alcohol inks and metallic pens

This final card uses a background image which I created using alcohol inks and a gold leaf pen! I stamped the sentiment from Emily’s set in the middle of the card and then added some of the background on the top and bottom, framing the sentiment. I added that Elegant Asters  butterfly which I colored with blues and purples (copics).
