Gina K. Designs Card Kit & Illustrator Blog Hop: Day Three

Welcome to Day 3! This is the card kit day! This kit is so huge! It features so many incredible stamps and bonus items! Check it out:



This first card features the incentive stamp called scripty encouragement (which is free with qualifying purchase). I used the stencil from the Heartfelt stencil from the kit with pink glitz glitter gel. on a black A2 card base. This card shimmers like nobody’s business! I used the incentive stamp with obsidian ink on Gina K. White. The heart stamp is from Happy Hearts, die cut and colored with copic markers.


This clean and simple design uses the beautiful flowers and the large ‘hello’ sentiment from A Big Hello stamp set. The flowers, stems and leaves were die cut and stamped with slate, sweet corn and whisper on Gina K. white paper and mounted on an A2 white card base. The sentiment is stamped in obsidian ink.

I hope you have a little time to hop around today!

Gina K Designs card Kit & Illustrator blog hop: day 2

While I am not officially hopping today, I figured I would show you bonus cards which I created using my stamp set Happy Hearts

Quick clean and simple card

This clean and simple card features the sentiment from Have Faith and the open heart from Happy Hearts! The heart was colored in with a copic marker to deepen the image. I whipped up this card in less than a minute.

Traditional clean and simple valentine

This card uses the bubble heart on kraft paper. The images were then colored in with a variety of pink copics. Super simple card to replicate!

Be sure to stop by Gina’s blog today for the full hop list

Check back here tomorrow for day 3 of the card kit release – where I will be featuring cards that will inspire you to want the kit!

Gina K. Designs Card Kit & Illustrator Blog Hop: Day One

Welcome to Day One of the Gina K. Designs Card Kit & Illustrator blog hop! Today I am featuring the new set I designed called Happy Hearts. This set also comes with a coordinating die! The release also features a great new set by Melanie called Embroidered Flowers.

Coordinating Happy Hearts die set

When I envisioned this set, I thought of all the times when the kids were young when I had to make multiple valentine designs for their class lists. I also thought how nice it would be to have this set for anniversaries, weddings or even thinking of you cards! I try to make my sets so versatile and multi-functional! I want you to get the most bang for your buck!

Clean and simple traditional valentine

The triple swirl circle with the micro-heart is so fun. I love to color in the tiny heart with a glitter pen or a marker! I tried to make it large enough for mix and match sentiments, while keeping it petite and delicate!

Embossed background gives texture and depth

This card uses a moonlit fog base. I love the way the red heart pops off the card! I used a stencil and heat embossed the background with white embossing powder! Sentiment is also heat embossed!

Clean and simple card on kraft

I stamped the heart image and colored with copic markers! Such a clean design, but easy to replicate or switch out sentiments!

Clean and simple

The red card stock just pops off the Ocean Breeze. I stamped the die cut hard with obsidian ink and loved the look with a few black micro-hearts.

Clean and simple sympathy card

I used the triple circle and added a few white gel pen dots and colored in the micro-heart. Sentiment from Layered Eucalyptus. Heart stamped on white and colored with copics.

Clean and simple rainbow hearts

These open hearts are easily colored with copics, watercolors or other markers!

So a few little housekeeping items:

Sometimes when I create a stamp set, I just know it is going to be fun to stamp with it!  This set is so versatile – you can use it for everything from The 4th of July to Baby Cards. The set can be used for Holidays and for backgrounds, for teacher and coach cards and birthday celebrations!

Here are some of the samples:

 

This first clean and simple card uses Wild Dandelion and Jelly Bean Green. I added a few sparkly gems and used the sentiment from the set Sweet Friendship.  two

 

This card uses innocent pink and amalgam black inks on the background and white pigment ink on the black sentiment block.

I love experimenting with kraft paper and different color inks. I used the white pigment ink right on the kraft with the open star. I colored in the stars with spectrum noir markers in a variety of colors. The sentiment is stamped in white pigment ink on Gina K. black card stock.  There is a small gem attached to the sentiment strip.

This was Bella’s favorite card of the bunch. I used the open star and stamped it in black amgalam ink and colored them in with spectrum noir markers.  Sentiment stamped in white pigment ink on black card stock strip

Another Kraft creation with white pigment ink! This was done using the speckled strip from Lisa’s Today And Always set followed by adding some of the solid stars from the All Star set. Make A Wish stamped in black amalgam ink.

Wild Dandelion, Ocean Mist and Black Amalgam ink were used in the creation of this super cute, 2 minute card.

This card uses a jelly bean A2 base. The stars are stamped in Jelly Bean, In The Navy and Ocean Mist.

Now if you missed the the Facebook Live with Gina K. last week, here is a Here is a LINK  to replay it!  I shared three cards:

This first one is so simple – just randomly stamping the stars in amalgam black ink and then adding the sentiment.  This sentiment is from Sweet Friendship.  I used a pale turquoise spectrum noir marker to color in the larger stars.

This card features a square innocent pink base with a mix of stars from All Star stamped in moonlit fog and innocent pink inks. The sentiment from Sweet Friendship is stamped in black amalgam ink.

This last All Star sample features a bubblgum pink A2 base. The stars are stamped in sweet mango, bubblegum pink, jelly bean green and ocean mist. The sentiment is stamped in black amalgam ink. I used some cute bakers twine to finish off the card. four
