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!
You came from Melanie’s blog and after commenting here, head to Rema’s blog and give her some love! And mark your calendar for the Instagram Hop on Monday!
Welcome to day two of the Illustrator & Card kit blog hop for October 2019! Today we are featuring the following two stamp sets! These are great sets for getting your mojo flowing!
This card was just me playing around with the stamp set and offsetting it off the card base. It looked like the Earth to me, which totally jived with the one sentiment. I colored the image in with copic markers and used some glitter glue on the edges. I really like the way this card turned out!
This card is actually a chocolate base. The photo colors (no matter how hard I tried) just do not do this color combination justice. It is rich and beautiful! The Gina K. copper embossing powder is just so elegant!

Today the design team will be showcasing sets from myself, Melanie & Emily:
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?
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!
**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)

Time to check out the Gina K Designs September 2019 Card kit called Autumn Splendor!
There is so much going on with this kit! It’s full of goodies like one and two step stamping, the amazing stencil and the coordinating dies! You will love it!
Let’s take a peek at what I made with the kit!
I started with a base which I brushed with skeleton leaves ink. The leaves were all hand cut (I know there is a die, we just didn’t have access to it, so I manually cut the leaves to layer on top) the sentiment is embossed with Gina K Copper embossing powder!
The second card uses a variety of green and yellow and beige inks on kraft paper. The smile die cut on white card stock really pops!
This card was stamped with barely there and colored with copic markers! I love the sentiment in black!
I used a stencil for the background using some fall colors. I love this sentiment. I sent this card off to Karen (who is in her senior year of college). She embraces all things fall! I miss her and sometimes sending a little note makes me feel less sad!
This last card is so fun! I simply used the leaves and embossed them with Gina’s rose gold powder. Oh my! On the black card stock it’s amazing! I die cut the hugs sentiment and embossed that too. This card is classy!
Here is a close up of the embossed die!
In case you haven’t been convinced to order – consider this incentive stamp Santana Rose, which you can get with a qualifying purchase of $75.
For this one layer card, I simply used the brushes to add green and turquoise inks to the stencil. I used the sentiment from Santana Rose ink obsidian amalgam ink. I added one tiny gem to the center of the middle flower! So simple! What do you think?
Today I am participating in the Gina K Designs September New Release blog hop. Today we are featuring two new sets: Majestic Peony by Hannah and Happy Fall by Emily.
This first card was created for my daughter who is back to college! She embraces all things fall, so this was the perfect sentiment for the card! It almost smells of pumpkin spice!
Can you tell that this is my favorite time of year? These leaves with this sentiment- ack! I’m in love!
Majestic peony will make you swoon! Every card I made with this set made me say wow! I stamped the Peony with skeleton leaves ink and colored with white ink from the Gina k Designs white ink pad with a watercolor brush. I added a few pearls and the sentiment and it was soft and perfect!
This next card is my favorite. I stamped the Peony in barely there ink and then colored with watercolors. I truly love how this one turned out!
