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?

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 Card Kit & Illustrator Blog Hop June 2019 Day 2

The second day of the blog hop features so much stuff you are going to go crazy! I am hoping that by using this card it will warm Upstate New York, which has been freezing lately!

Ocean Minded Card Kit!

Whimsical Wildflower Frame – Hannah Schroepfer
Fun Idea: Use alcohol inks to make an “under the sea” background

This card features the sentiment and the wave stamp from the card kit. I thought it looked like coral on this background! The sentiment is stamped in Gina K. black amalgam ink.

Fun Idea: Create a fun summer background with watercolors

I used some watercolor paints to create a fun background. The base is a sweet corn A2 card. Images stamped in Gina K. black amalgam ink.

Fun Idea: Sing Zac Brown Band’s Toes in the Water while looking at this card!

This super quick card features the footprints and the sentiment, which totally reminds me of a Zac Brown Song (Toes in the water). The Gina K. ink for the footprints is Sandy Beach and the sentiment is Charcoal Brown.

Fun Idea: Try your best to create a watercolor background that looks like a wave

This A2 Sea Glass background has a watercolor main image. The sentiment is from the Ocean Minded Card kit. The sentiment was stamped with Gina K. black amalgam ink.

Fun Idea: Use the Mermaid Scales stencil to create the perfect background for mermaid cards

This card uses the Mermaid Scales stencil with (LCBB) using Ocean Mist, Turquoise Sea and Blue Lagoon. Vicky Mermaid works perfect with this stenciled background! The sentiment from the card kit is stamped in white ink on black card stock. I used a few tear drop gems using connect glue.

Fun Idea: add sequins to create a little bling next to your sentiment

This card features more alcohol ink backgrounds. Hannah’s set had a variety of sentiments which work so well alone with pretty backgrounds. A trifecta of sequins makes the gold leaf on the alcohol ink really pop.

Fun Idea: Frame your sentiment on the top and bottom with the floral images.

This card is an A2 Dusty Rose base with a layer of Gina K. White layering card stock. I stamped the images and colored with copic markers.
