Thermoweb & Gina K Designs Instagram Mix n Mingle Hop

Welcome back everyone! Today I’m featuring more cards using the new collection from Gina K Designs and Thermoweb Stamp n Stencil sets. We are actually doing an Instagram Hop and there will be prizes to give away so if you are interested please head over to my Instagram account HERE.


I have a video showing how I created these cards that you can view down below or HERE on my Youtube channel.


My first card shown is featuring the Wishing You Joy stamp n stencil set. I stamped the flowers in Raging Red Electro Pop ink and the centers of the flowers using Red Velvet. I also stamped the leaves in Fresh Asparagus ink. Then used the coordinating die to cut them out.

Using the coordinating stencil, I added the centers to the flowers using Gold Glitz Glitter Gel. For the leaves, I used the stencil to add the berries. You can either use Red Glitz Glitter or like I did, use the White Glitz Glitter Gel.

I added the design to my background by ink blending the Foliage Stencil onto Jelly Bean Green card stock with Jelly Bean Green Ink. After I trimmed the panel down to 3 3/4″ x 5″ I lightly ink blended the edges. I then added this panel to a piece of white card stock measuring 4″ x 5 1/4″ and attached to an A2 size card base made from Jelly Bean Green card stock.

I layered the flowers around the bottom corner using Connect glue. For the sentiment, I heat embossed it in Gold Embossing Powder and fussy cut around it. Then added to my card front with black foam squares.

My next set of cards is featuring the Autumn Wishes stamp set. I stamped my leaves in various colors including Jelly Bean Green, Prickly Pear and Tomato Soup. Using a small dauber, I ink the edges Chocolate Truffle. Funny story, I actually took a picture of the wrong card so the ones pictured below don’t show the Chocolate Truffle edges but the video they do.

I used the coordinating die to cut out my leaves and then stamped the stems in the Chocolate Truffle ink. The coordinating stencil has the stems where you can add your choice of Glitz Glitter Gel but I wanted to show how you could also stamp the stems in with an acrylic block.

This next card is quite simple where I just lined the leaves up in a square on my card front making one of the spaces a place for a sentiment. I attached the panel to a card base created from Honey Mustard card stock.

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration!

For my challenge project today, I created some inserts for my pocket pages. I used the Happy Thoughts stamp set for this. I cut some white Neenah cardstock down to 3″ x 4″ and a couple at 4″ x 6″. Then I randomly stamped the sentiments on each card. I added a little bit of gold striped washi tape to the sides and bottoms.

I love these sentiments on my pages!!! I knew exactly what I was going to do when I saw this stamp set! 


Rainbow Lucy C.C.Designs

Welcome back to my blog! I’m sharing today a card I made using Rainbow Lucy and Spotty Dotty Background from the February release at C.C.Designs. I knew the second I saw this background stamp that I wanted to dig out my distress inks and play… and that’s what  I did!
I started out by stamping the spotty dotty background with versamark onto my cardstock. I then heat embossed it with WOW bright white embossing powder. Next I dug out my distress inks! I lightly applied rainbow colors across the whole entire piece and then trimmed it down using the stitched rectangle die. I applied that piece to a piece of white cardstock, adhered some foam behind this mat and attached to my card base.
For my image, I also used the stitched rectangle die and then using my Misti stamping tool, stamped my image in the center.  I love to mat everything as it thinks it just adds a nice little “something” to the card. The sentiment I stamped from the Lucky Rainbow Sentiments and some added some colorful rainbow enamel dots.
I’m super excited how this all turned out!!
