Ink Blending Tips and Techniques: Gina K Designs July 2022 Release

Hello friends! I’m so excited to share with you inspiration using the Gina K Designs July 2022 release!

I’m going to be sharing some ink blending tips and one of my favorite ways to quickly ink blend backgrounds.


I have a video tutorial that you can view down below or HERE on my Youtube channel.

I walk through all the details in the video so down below I will quickly go over the supplies used.

The stamp set I’m using today is called Just Breathe. I absolutely love lotus flowers so I was really excited to see this one. It has 4 lotus flower images on it and I used them all!

The first card I’m creating has a very dramatic look to it by ink blending Blue Raspberry and In The Navy Ink on Powder Blue cardstock using blending brushes.

I created multiples of the flowers so I had enough for two cards. To keep the crisp, dark lines of the image I stamped them in Obsidian ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

Then ink blended the flowers with Lemon Drop, Light Carnation and Dark Carnation using mini blending brushes.

For added interest to the background, I added flicks of white with Copic Opaque White and Galaxy watercolor palette from Iuile.

This next card is a little on the softer side.

The background for this is using the Swiss Dots embossing folder on white cardstock.

After trimming the panel to 3 1/4″ x 4 1/2″, I added it to a card panel created from Innocent Pink cardstock.

This card is finished off with a sentiment from the Mixed Messages and a few embellishments.

Hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration.

Be sure to check out the video HERE for a more detailed instruction on the card process.

Don’t forget about the fabulous new incentive Bold Bloom! This stamp set ships FREE with any $75 purchase from Gina K Designs.

  1. Hi, Mindy – These are both lovely. I think I would have just centered the main (first) flower on card #1 and let it be. I don’t think the second and third cards you added made the card better, but I love the Swiss Dot(s) background. The second card is GORGEOUS!! Love it!
    p.s. I think that “Iuile” is pronounced “ee – YULE – ay” ; in Italian, as in other Romance languages, the “i” is pronounced “eeee” much of the time.
