CARD DETAILS

I have two cards to share with you. I consider these classical looking which is a little out of sorts for me but I love how they came out!

My first card I stamped a cluster of leaves from the Gina K Designs Vibrant Blooms stamp set using Black Amalgam Ink.

I die cut the word die Boujee from white card stock 3 times. . I used Dusty Rose and Passionate Pink ink from Gina K Designs to create an ombre effect. Then layered my word with connect glue.

Before attaching my die cut word to the card, I added a small sentiment with black ink from the Bad & Boujee stamp set. Then attached my word using connect glue. Look at all that white space!

My finishing touch is by adding some Liquid Pixie Dust to the die cut word for a ton of sparkle!

For my second card, I created my own background with the Stripes background stamp from Gina K Designs. I trimmed a little from the side and added to an A2 size white notecard.

I stamped the perfume bottle from the Bad & Boujee stamp set from Inkon3 and also some leave clusters from the Vibrant Blooms stamp set from Gina K Designs. I copic colored my images and die cut with the coordinating dies.

For dimension, instead of foam tape, I die cut out the leaf cluster piece 3 more times and layered with connect glue. I really like adding dimension this way versus the foam tape as it doesn’t leave weak spots.

I added some sparkle using the Liquid Pixie Dust from Inkon3.

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration! Be sure to hop along with us for more inspiration!

Rainbow Glitz Glitter Gel

Welcome everyone! I have something fun and colorful to share today. Did you know that Gina K Designs & Thermoweb Glitz Glitter Gel comes in a rainbow of colors? Well it does and we are going to have some fun with it today! I’ll also show you how amazing it looks on dark card stock too!

VIDEO DETAILS

I have a video showing you how I created these cards that you can view down below or HERE on my Youtube channel. Supplies are listed at the end of this post or in the video description on Youtube.

CARD DETAILS

I’m showing you two different examples today. My first card is applying a rainbow of colors to Neenah Solar White card stock 110 lb. using the Sun Spots Stencil. I actually didn’t even use all the colors of Glitz Glitter Gel because there are so many amazing colors.

I used Bubble Pink (you could also use Red Velvet), Sweet Mango, Gold, Grass Green, Turquoise Sea and Wild Lilac. I held my stencil in place with some Pixie Spray and then attached my stencil/card stock to a glass media mat with purple tape.

I’m going to apply the glitz glitter gel with a spatula in a diagonal pattern across my card.

Once I remove the stencil, I reveal this amazing rainbow background! Makes my heart go pitter patter.

My next card is using the same colors of glitz glitter gel but this time onto Black Onyx card stock. WOW! This came out so awesome!

I die cut the word Hugs from white card stock three times using my Spellbinders Platinum machine. This is a great manual die cutting machine. I like to pull it out because it’s easy to take on and off my desk to save space when creating. It also folds up so I can tuck it away on my shelf when it’s not in use.

I also die cut the word Heart from Black Onyx card stock three times and layered together with Connect Glue.

I die cut a circle from Vellum using the Double Stitched Circle die. I’ll add my die cut words to the center of the vellum circle and then adding glue right behind the die cut words on the back of the vellum, I can add this to the center of my card front. I like to stack blocks or Glitz Glitter Gel containers on top to add pressure and help adhere to my project.

Aren’t these just amazing! So heavenly!

It’s a little funny because I had these sitting on my desk and my daughter walks through and says “oooo those are pretty!” . I’m glad she thinks so because they are for her. She’s heading off to camp for a week! I wrote a special note inside of each one and one of the cards I tucked in her duffle bag. The other card I will leave at camp for them to give her during the week. We are going to miss her so much!

Hope you enjoyed today’s projects.

Gina K Designs June 2019 Blog Hop Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of the Gina K Designs June Release Blog Hop! If you missed Day 1’s inspiration you can check it out HERE. If you are coming from Melanie’s blog, you are in the right place. If you are just happening upon my blog you can start from the beginning over at Gina K Designs blog.

PRIZES

Be sure to leave a comment along the way to be entered into the giveaway for a $50 gift certificate for Gina K Designs!

CARD DETAILS

My first card is featuring the ever-amazing Ocean Minded Card Kit. I have a video you can check out HERE using the Ocean Minded Stamp but today I’m focusing on the Sun Kissed stamp set that is in the kit.

I stamp images in Amalgam Ink, color with copic markers and cut out with the coordinating die.

For the background, I ink blend Tranquil Teal and Blue Lagoon onto Layering white card stock using a Life Changing Brush. I trim this panel down to 4″ x 5 1/4″ and add to a card base made from Ocean Mist card stock.

Using another piece of white card stock cut to 4″ x 5 1/4″, I die cut out a window using the Stitched Oval die. My little sand dune is created by die cutting a circle from Kraft card stock with the Double Stitched Circle die. I trim this piece down and add to my window so it’s just peeking up.

I’ll layer my window panel with foam tape and add to the front of my card. Then I can add my images with the Gina K Designs dot runner.

The word Sun is die cut from white card stock and I ombre ink blended Wild Dandelion and Tangerine Twist.

Here is another card I had created using the Ocean Minded stamp set. This card was created exactly as my previous cards from my VIDEO but this time I used Passionate Pink and Innocent Pink for the water. I just thought it was fun to change up the colors !

My next card is featuring the Whimsical Wildflowers Border set. I started by ink blending a panel of Ocean Mist card stock with Tranquil Teal and Blue Lagoon. Once the ink is dry, I heat emboss the frame image using white detail embossing powder.

I die cut the Hugs word die two times from white card stock and once from white glitter card stock and adhere together with liquid glue.

This beautiful scripty sentiment is also from the Whimsical Wildflowers Frames stamp set. I heat embossed in white onto Black card stock and trimmed to a thin strip with the Cut Align.

This detailed image looks amazing colored or heat embossed. So versatile!

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration! Be sure to hop along with us for more inspiration using the Ocean Minded card kit and Whimsical Wildflowers Frames.

Gina K Designs June 2019 Blog Hop Day 1

Welcome everyone to the Gina K Designs June Release Blog Hop Day 1. We have some amazing cards to share with you today. If you came here from Melanie’s Blog you are in the right spot! If you get lost along the way, I have the entire blog hop line up listed down below or you can view Gina’s Blog.

Be sure to leave comments along the way for a chance to win a $50 gift certificate for Gina K Designs!

Today’s cards will be featuring the Have Faith stamp set and Timeless Beauty.

My first card is using Have Faith. This stamp set is filled with large, hand lettered sentiments. I paired my sentiment with the Thick Brush stencil.

For my background, I mixed various colors of Gina K Designs reinkers with Pearl Embossing Paste. Then applied the colored embossing paste to the stencil onto Neenah Solar White card stock.

Once dry, I trimmed the panel down and added to a card base made from Ivory card stock.

I stamped the sentiment onto white card stock using Black Amalgam ink and die cut with the Double Stitched Circles die. I added the sentiment to the card front with foam squares.

My next card is featuring the Timeless Beauty stamp set. It’s quite simple but I think packs a lot of punch!

I took the image of the lipstick lips and randomly stamped it onto a piece of white card stock with Cherry Red ink.

I trimmed the panel down and added to a piece of Cherry Red card stock which I also layered onto a white A2 size card base.

The sentiment is also from the Timeless Beauty stamp set. I stamped onto Black card stock and heat embossed with white embossing powder.

So clean and simple but a lot of fun!

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration!

Gina K Designs Release

It’s time for the latest release from Gina K Designs! It’s another one of those posts where you grab your coffee and tea and sit back to enjoy.

If you haven’t seen the Ocean Minded card kit yet, head over to the website and grab it. Go ahead. Go get it. I’ll wait. Because trust me, you don’t want to miss out! It is jam packed with so many awesome products I am sure it will sell out quickly.

VIDEO DETAILS

I have a tutorial that you can view below or HERE on my Youtube channel showing how to create this amazing beach scene. Heavenly right?!

I’m going to start my card by masking off the bottom of my card with Masking Magic paper and ink blending Wild Dandelion and Tangerine Twist with a Life Changing Blender Brush. I’ll place the Sunshine Stencil over the trop and light blend on some more Tangerine Twist.

I’ll remove my mask and add a new one to cover my ink blended area. This time I’m ink blending the bottom half of the card with Sandy Beach. From the masking magic down, I’ll ink blend Blue Denim and Blue Lagoon.

Once the ink is dry, I’m going to prep my card with an anti static tool, line up my ocean stamp and ink up with embossing ink. Placement of this step is kind of a big deal. You want to leave some beach showing. I made a couple where I didn’t have any beach and it just didn’t look right (to me). Next sprinkle on some Puffy Embossing powder and heat set. The puffy embossing powder adds so much texture and makes this look even more realistic!

To finish off the card, I trimmed the panel down to 3 3/4″ x 5″ and added a sentiment from the Sun Kissed stamp set to a circle cut with the Double Stitched Circles. My card base is made from Turquoise Sea card, layered with a piece of white card stock and adding my ocean panel.

For my next card shown, I created the ocean by ink blending Blue Denim at the very top and then Blue Lagoon and Sandy Beach. I heat embossed the ocean with the puffy white embossing powder and trimmed my panel down.

This time I added a sentiment from the Ocean Minded stamp set.

I layered the card with white card stock and added to an A2 size note card creating from Blue Lagoon card stock.

This set is so amazing you could create a scene and just frame it!

Be sure to head over and check out my video as it explains a lot!

Next I’m sharing some inspiration of the new stamp sets released tonight.

This is one is featuring Whimsical Wildflowers.

These florals from the Whimsical Wildflowers make a gorgeous border.

Timeless Beauty is a stunning of set with his fun lipstick that I stamped in Amalgam ink and colored with copic markers.

From clean and simple to a bright, bold background. Another card featuring Timeless Beauty.

There are a lot of stencils being released including the Leafy Stencil which I’m in love with! I lightly ink blended Key Lime and Grass Green. I heat embossed the sentiment from the Have Faith stamp set in the center of the card with Champagne Embossing powder.

I layered my panel onto white card stock and added to a card base made from Grass Green.

For my next card, I paired the Have Faith sentiment with a background created using the Deco Stencil. I ink blended a panel in Passionate Pink, Bubblegum Pink and Innocent Pink. Then I applied White Glitz Glitter Gel over the top with the Deco stencil.
