Gina K. Designs & Inkon3 Collaboration Blog Hop

Welcome to the Gina K. Designs & Inkon3 Collaboration Blog hop! I have a bundle of fun (fundle) to show you! I created some super cute cards with products from both companies!

Inkon3 Bad & Boujee stamp set
Inkon3 Bad and Boujee coordinating die set

Gina K. Designs Vibrant Blooms stamp
Fun Idea: Use a strip of designer paper on your card to break up the white space

This first card uses an A2 white card with a strip of black polka dot paper. It uses cherry red ink for the lips and black amalgam ink for the sentiments.

Fun Idea: Channel your inner James Charles for a fun take on lipstick

I made this super cute card with the rainbow lipstick for a family friend! He loves makeup and making people beautiful, so I thought this would help him channel his inner James Charles! The kisses die cut was covered in this amazing stuff called liquid pixie dust! It is something that you can use a little or a lot of. I chose a lot! HA HA! I painted it on the die cut with a paint brush.

Fun idea: Add some liquid pixie dust to the perfume bottle and diamonds

This was my daughters favorite of the three I made with the Bad and Boujee set. The perfume bottle and big diamond are die cut, colored and covered with liquid pixie dust (and popped up with foam dots). The smaller diamonds are stamped right on the A2 card.

Now on to Vibrant Blooms! I had a bunch of thank you notes to make for the teachers this year and this set proved to be a lifesaver! I love the thank you sentiment. It is the perfect size and the elegant font is delightful!

Fun Idea: Create a background on glossy paper with alcohol inks and cut into strips for one-of-a-kind cards

This card uses a strip of glossy paper which I cut into 4.25×5.5 pieces. I made a huge background and then cut it into smaller strips for multiple cards. Once the alcohol ink was completely dried, I stamped the flowers with the flower from Vibrant Blooms in black amalgam ink. Then I added some liquid pixie dust all over the glossy strip! Oh boy does it shimmer. The sentiment is stamped in black amalgam ink!

I made this background with alcohol ink and the leaf bunch from Vibrant Blooms. This time I stamped the sentiment on the glossy paper as well. I added a little liquid pixie dust to make it sparkle.

Fun Idea: stamp the images on a post it note so you can layer the flowers and leaves.

I stamped the flowers on the cards in layers by using a post it note to cover the flowers and give it some depth. I colored the images in copic markers and then stamped the sentiment. Super easy card and the flowers are fun to color!

That is my contribution for the blog hop! I hope you liked them. If you want to play along to win one of the $50 gift cards, leave a comment on my blog (and all the other blogs). Which card was your favorite?

Gina K. Designs February 2019 New Release Blog Hop Day 1

Today we are featuring sets from Gina K. (Crafty Notes) and Emily (Cake Toppers)!

The card which I made with Gina’s new set is stamped on white shimmery paper and colored with copic markers. The base is pink passion!



The card which I made with Emily’s set is stamped on white card stock with a variety of pinks!  All my friends are turning 50 this year (and last) so I need to have some in my stash! I stamped the cake stand in black amalgam ink and then used bubblegum pink for the cake layers. I used pink passion for the sentiment, the numbers and cake layers. I added some dots with a copic marker to the 50. Finally, some pretty pearls finish off the cake!
