Pin It To Win It Blog Hop


Welcome to the Gina K. Designs "Pin it to Win it" Blog Hop!

Today, the Illustration Team has put together a special hop featuring many of their beautiful stamp sets enhanced by the Gina K. Designs patterned paper! As you visit each blog, "Pin" the project to one of your Pinterest Boards and use the words, "Gina K. Designs" in your description. We will search Pinterest for your pins and choose 3 winners who will each win a fun grab bag of stamps, patterned paper and embellishments.

Don't have a Pinterest account? That's okay! Leave a comment on each blog and we will choose 3 winners from all the comments too! Wanna' do both? You'll double your chances of winning some fun Gina K. Designs stamping goodies! We'll draw the winners' names on Friday.

AND, from now through Tuesday night, Gina K. Designs is running a special sale- 50% off all stamp set duos, including 6 new ones AND 25% off ALL Gina K. Designs 6 X 6 Patterned Paper packs.

My first card features my Elegant Florals stamp set and Gina's Petals and Wings designer paper. Step by step photos below.
And on my second card, I used images from Birds and Blossoms along with Sundance pattern paper. I'll post the step by step instructions for this card on Wednesday. 

All the illustrators are showing samples today, so be sure to check their blogs to see what they have to show you…

Start hopping here:

Melanie Muenchinger

Tami Mayberry

Theresa Momber


To begin, I stamped the narcissus flowers, from Elegant Florals, using Memento Espresso Truffle ink.

Next I began coloring with my Y17 Copic® marker.

Then added Y21.

For the stems, I used YG25.

Then shaded with YG95. After coloring, I cut out the image.

Next I used my Spellbinders™Labels Four die template to cut and emboss Pure Luxury Ivory card stock, then sponged with Gina K Fresh Asparagus ink.

Then sponged using Gina K Innocent Pink ink.

I stamped one of the foliage images using Gina K Innocent Pink ink.

I cut and embossed a piece of the Petals and Wings pattern paper using Spellbinders Elegant Labels 4, using Gina K Innocent Pink.

Then cut another piece of Petals and Wings pattern paper and sponged the edges using Gina K Innocent Pink ink.

I cut and embossed Pure Luxury Ivory using a Spellbinders Charmed I'm Sure die template, then sponged with Gina K Fresh Asparagus.

And stamped the sentiment using Memento Espresso Truffle.

I assembled the layers onto an Ivory card front, attached a bow and added the tag.

Thanks for visiting. I hope you have a fabulous day!
