Furry Friends Blog Hop

Hello! The Gina K Designs team is back with another fun blog hop. We are featuring the most adorable stamp sets, designed by Gina's daughter, Alicia Krupsky. The sets are called Frisky Felines and Playful Pups. Both sets also have coordinating dies, too!

On my first card, I combined images from both sets to create a simple scene with a cat and dog together.

Here I used the Frisky Felines set again. I stamped the cat directly on Kraft cardstock and then colored it with color pencils.

We will choose one lucky winner who will take home a $50 gift certificate to the Gina K. Designs online store.  Lisa Hetrick is up next!

Gina K New Release Blog Hop : Framescapes - Enchanted Forest, Geo Thanks, You Are

 Hello again! It's day two of our inspiration blog hops at Gina K Designs for the latest release. Today we are showcasing my latest set, Framescapes - Enchanted Garden, You Are by Lisa Hetrick, and Geo Thanks by Claire Brennan. That branch is from the new StampTV kit. What a great pairing!

 Here is another Framescapes - Enchanted Garden card. I sponged a background, then stamped the images. I used a Stardust Glitter Pen for the fairy wings.

 And here is another Framescapes card. I'm having a good time putting this little fairy on different perches!

 We have a fabulous new illustrator! Lisa Hetrick has joined our team and we couldn't be more thrilled to have her talent with us. Lisa has created a wonderful wreath set that has so many possibilities! I had a great time coloring her adorable flower image.

There are so many ways to use this set! This was a super quick card to make.

 Next up is a always fabulous Claire Brennan with her new set, Geo Thanks. Love the style of these images!

Here is another card with Geo Thanks. What a fun style!

Gina K Release Day 1 Stately Flowers 12 & Emma & Riley


  Hello! The team at Gina K Designs is blog hopping today to share inspiration for the latest release. Today we are featuring Stately Flowers 12 by Melanie Muenchinger along with Emma and Riley by Beth Silaika. I started with Melanie's Stately 12 for my first card. If you love flowers, you'll love this set. It's absolutely fabulous! I stamped one of the floral images several times on Kraft before heat embossing with white. They I colored in the flowers with Prismacolor Pencils. That fab sentiment just happens to be from the new StampTV Kit, Hearts & Flowers.

Here is another card with Stately Flowers 12. I just love these gorgeous flowers! I used Prismacolor pencils again on this card, then added a few images from my new set, Framescapes - Enchanted Garden. 


Next up, I have a sample with Beth's adorable new Emma and Riley set. I adore Beth's cute animal images. So cute and fun. I used Copic markers to color this image and overlaid it upon a sponged background. 

And here is another card featuring Beth's flamingos. I used both of the flamingos. What a sweet pair! Once again, I colored with Copic markers and overlaid the images on a sponged background.

Ready for more inspiration? Guess what? I don't have the link list. Oops, sorry! I am off having a great time on a graduation trip to celebrate my daughter getting her Bachelor Degree from Sacramento State University and I had to schedule this blog post before we had all the links ready.
