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!

The full hop list is on Gina’s blog! You should have come from Mindy’s blog.

To continue hopping, go to Lisa’s blog next!

If you leave a comment on all the blog’s today you are in the running for a $50 gift certificate for Gina K. Designs store! Winner will be announced on Gina’s blog a few days after the end of the hop!

September 2019 Release Party Samples

Here are the cards which I created for the release party

this car was done with white embossing powder on kraft card stock. I colored with comic markers.

This card was done with the embossing resist technique. I used the brushes to create the background with traditional fall colors.

This card uses a lightly brushed stencil background with the Autumn Splendor kit! The main image was stamped on white and I brushed the edges to make it softer. The black layer makes it pop and the twine gives it that rustic fall feel!

this final card is so simple. I love love love the font used in the forever sentiment! Ack! The leaves are two step stamped and then I added some tiny black beads.

Tomorrow I will be sharing Hannah & Emily’s sets and the samples I created with them! Come back tomorrow!!!

Gina K Designs January 2019 New Release Blog Hop: Day One

Happy New Year! Welcome to the first Gina K. Designs Release of 2019! Today we are showing off two of the new sets: Open Book by Melanie Meunchinger and Today and Always by Lisa Hetrick.

If you missed it, there was a Gina K. Facebook Live Release Party which featured the Illustrators and these sets.  It was pretty fun to see & hear the ladies I work with (I have never met them in real life, so it was the next best thing).

Here is a LINK to the Facebook Live replay in case you missed it!

Today I am showing a few cards that I made with Melanie & Lisa’s new sets!

Melanie’s Open Book

Lisa’s Today And Always

Here is the first card with Melanie’s set:

This would be a great card for my sister or sister-in-law! They are both librarians!  It would also make a great card for inserting a book store gift certificate! It would make a great card for your favorite bibliophile!

This second card is perfect for anyone who loves crafts! I used the pencil stamp and colored it and then stamped the I ❤ Crafts along the bottom with inks that coordinated with the pencil colors.

Lisa’s Today And Always

Lisa’s new set features this amazing spatter pattern, flowers and the fun sentiments.

I chose to use Make Today Amazing with Moonlit Fog on innocent pink. Such a great combo! I used a little twine to finish the card. Love how the sentiments can me mixed and matched. Since Today is so huge I was able to put make sideways!

I was playing around with a scrap of paper and some of the beautiful Gina K. inks in purples. I never play with purple, but I created this background with sponge daubers and stamped the stars from my set with Gina K. white ink.  The sentiment went with it perfectly and mounted on a white A2 base, it looks clean & beautiful!

fourteen

Now I am not going to tell you what to do, but if I wanted to have a chance to win a $50 gift card for something on my Gina K. wishlist, I would hop around and leave a comment on all the blogs!  You can start here by telling me that you enjoyed these cards and that you Pinky-Promise that you will stop by tomorrow to see my new stamp set and all the beautiful creations which our design team made with them!
