Cards Distress Oxide Inks Gina K Designs

Gina K Designs September Release Hop Day 1

Welcome to the Gina K Designs September Release Blog Hop Day 1! 
Today I am sharing cards featuring the Mandala Maker and Men of Faith stamp set. 
Rina did an amazing job designing this stamp set and I had such a blast creating different designs with it. The possibilities are endless! For this card, I stuck with black and white which is so striking! Using the wreath builder stencil, I stamped my design with Amalgam ink onto white cardstock that measures 4″ x 5 1/4″.
Using a T-square ruler and black fine tip pen I added lines coming down from the points. Then stamped a couple more designs from the stamp set. I paired my image with the sentiment from the Grand Garden stamp set. What a perfect combination! To finish off the card, I added some Seaglass & Metallic Silver Jewels with the Gina K Connect Glue.
For my second card, I’m showcasing the Men of Faith stamp set. This is fabulous because you can customize your card! I started by creating a stencil with the Stitched Circle Die and ink blended Squeezed Lemonade and Ripe Persimmon Distress Oxide ink. Then, I stamped my tree from the Rustic Autumn stamp set with Charcoal Brown Ink. 
I love the stippling technique for creating my tree. I used a variety of green copic markers to add the look of leaves to my tree. 
I customized the sentiment which could be used for a Father’s Day card or to give just to show appreciation.

Supplies for each card listed at the bottom.
