Gina K Designs October 2019 Release Blog Hop Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of the Gina K Designs October 2019 Release blog hop! We have more inspiration to share with you.


Leave some leave for the designers along the way to be eligible to win a $50 gift certificate to the Gina K Designs store. Winners will be announced on October 28, 2019 on the Gina K Designs Blog.


My first card is going to be featuring the YOU WARM MY HEART stamp set. I am seriously in love with these trees!

I decided to try my hand at a watercolor background. I used Hero Arts liquid watercolors and Acrylic Ink to create a wintery scene. Once the panel was dry, I splattered white ink on it for the look of snow.

I trimmed the panel down to 4″ x 5 1/4″ and stamped the trees in OBSIDIAN Black Ink.

Using my MISTI tool, I lined the WINTER WISHES sentiment on my card front and stamped in EMBOSSING INK. I heat embossed SILVER embossing powder and once cool, I repeated this step. Heat embossing it twice adds a little dimension and helps it stand out a little more against my background.

I finished off the card by lining with foam tape and mounting to a white A2 size card base.

My next card features the new YOU BEING YOU stamp set. I started by stamping the outline floral image onto Bristol Smooth card stock with embossing ink. Then heat embossed GOLD embossing powder.

I watercolored my image with Zig Real Brush markers and once completely dry, I die cut the image out.

For the background, I ink blended the SNOWFLAKE MANDALA STENCIL onto KEY LIME card stock with KEY LIME Ink and a Life Changing Blender Brush. I trimmed the panel down to 4 1/4″ x 4″ and added to a white card base. I then added a 1/4″ strip of black card stock.

I finished off by stamping a sentiment from the WINTER HUGS stamp set in Obsidian ink and adde my image to the card with foam squares.

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration!

    Your cards are such an inspiration for color choices. The tree line is so beautiful against the stunning sky. I enjoyed all your cards and color combinations. Thanks for the tip of double stamping & embossing the sentiment for added texture that made sentiment stand out! Look forward to reviewing your future cards.
