Three step stamping

Clean and simple sympathy card

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.

Coral flower sympathy card

Mix and match sets for the perfect card

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!

Gina K Designs September New Release Day Two: Autumn Splendor Card Kit

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?

Gina K Designs September New Release Day One: Majestic Peony and Happy Fall

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!
