Gina K Designs April Blog Hop Day 2

Welcome back to Day 2 of the Gina K Designs Blog Hop for the April Release. We are sharing inspiration for the Elegant Asters card kit and Hugs & Wildflowers stamp set.

Don’t forget to leave a comment to be entered into the GIVEAWAY for a chance at a $50 gift certificate to the Gina K Designs store! Winners will be announced on the Gina K Designs blog on Friday, April 19, 2019.

My first card is using the Elegant Asters card kit. I stamped my images onto white card stock with Embossing Ink. Then added white embossing powder and heat with my heat gun.

Before die cutting my images, I’m going to add some color. I used Red Hot, Wild Dandelion, Sea Glass, Sweet Mango and Jelly Bean Green ink cubes and applied the colors with a Life Changing Blender Brush. Then attached the coordinating dies with purple tape and die cut with my Gemini Jr.

I attached my die cut images around my white card panel using Connect glue. Then I added this panel to a card base made from Sea Glass card stock. I stamped the sentiment from this set using Black Amalgam ink and die cut with the Small Circle Double Stitched Dies. I also die cut a larger circle from Sea Glass card stock and added to my card front with foam squares.

My next card is featuring the beautiful Hugs & Wildflowers stamp set. I randomly stamped my flower images around my card with Black Amalgam ink. I stamped the layering image over my outline using Innocent Pink Ink. What I really love about this set is I don’t have to align it perfectly. It’s feels more artsy to stamp them off center.

I die cut a circle from the center of the card panel and added to a piece of Whisper card stock. Using my Misti, I stamp the sentiment in the middle.

So simple and yet so beautiful!

I have one more card to share with you and that is featuring the Peaceful Florals Incentive set. You can earn this set for free by spending $75 or more!

To start my card, I heat embossed the Peaceful Florals with white embossing powder. Then I masked off a portion of that image with post it tape and ink blended Seedless Preserves, Abandoned Coral and Tattered Rose Distress Oxide ink.

Staying clean and simple, I just added my die cut Hugs words using Connect Glue. So simple but a powerful message.

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration!

Neat & Tangled April Release Recap

We are so close to the April release from Neat & Tangled! Today I’m sharing one more card featuring sets from the release. I combined a few of them for this adorable night time scene.

I’m going to start by ink blending. I’m adding Shaded Lilac, Wilted Violet and Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide inks to a piece of Bristol Smooth card stock with a Life Changing Blender Brush. Next, I am stamping the Receding Background onto my ink blended panel using Grape Jelly Ink. I don’t push down too hard because I actually want it to be splotchy and not completely stamped.

I add some stars to the background using Grape Jelly ink. I’m kind of on a tone-on-tone kick right now and loving how this sky is looking!

My images are from the To The Stars stamp set and All the Bunnies. I stamped them onto Neenah Solar white card stock with copic friendly ink. Then colored with copic markers and cut out with the coordinating dies. I also stamp some of the puffy clouds onto Lovely Lavender card stock with Black ink and die cut out.

Now I can assemble my elements to my card to create this beautiful sky scene. I love the little bunny looking up at the moon. One final touch is adding a few sequins from the Enchanted sequin mix.

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration! The release is tomorrow! Are you ready?

I’m kicking it off today with the new stamp set For the Grad. I immediately thought of the stamp set Wonderful World. The globe was such a perfect fit with the graduation cap.

Have you seen all the amazing new word dies? Eeek! I’m in heaven with this release! I die cut Smile from black card stock and added the sentiment from the For The Grad stamp set.

How about some adorable puppies? Melanie has created this stamp set Puppies Galore filled with puppy cuteness. Tons of elements on here to customize your own little puppy. I really wanted to color this dog black because that’s the color of my dog but I thought a red lab would be easier lol.

I used Chocolate Truffle for my card base and Hugs die cut word. That sweet sentiment is also off of the Puppies Galore set.

I added a collar to my puppy but Melanie included a few other images you could add. She thought of everything!

Neat & Tangled April Release Day 3 + Giveaway

Welcome back to Day 3 of the Neat & Tangled April 2019 release! I hope you are enjoying all of the amazing inspiration we’ve been sharing with you. Today we are showcasing the gorgeous Receding Background red rubber stamp. There are so many possibilities with this one!

For my card today, I created a subtle background and paired it with the Lotus Flowers. I stamped the Receding Background onto Sage Green card stock with Sage Green Ink. I was really surprised how awesome this Sage Green is! I love tone-on-tone looks. I trimmed this panel down to 4″ x 5 1/4″ and added to a white A2 size card base

I stamped the Lotus Flowers onto Neenah Solar White card stock with copic friendly ink. Then added some shading with my copic markers. I wanted to keep the flowers mainly white so I used my Warm Grays to add light flicks. I die cut the flowers out with the coordinating die and attached to the front of the card with foam squares.

Next, I die cut a Skinny Strip Banner from black card stock. I stamped the sentiment in Clear Ink and heat embossed with Champagne Embossing powder. I added this over my flowers with foam tape as well. My finishing touch is adding a few of the sequins from the Enchanted sequins mix using liquid glue. I topped off the sequins with Unicorn Stickles for a little more sparkle.

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration. Be sure to visit the Neat & Tangled Blog for more inspiration! Be sure to leave a comment on the Design Team blogs for a chance to enter the GIVEAWAY!
