Inspired by all the Little Things #57 - You are Loved

Happy Wednesday!

This week at Inspired by all the Little Things, the graphic for challenge #57 just gives me goose bumps!  Look at all those tulips:

My tulips are from Reverse Confetti.  You can see the Blooms 'n Buds set right here.  I still have this card at home and need to send it soon to someone who needs a little reassurance. It is on my to-do list now!  Everyone needs kindness and it's up to us to offer it!

I hope you have a great day and I'll see you again tomorrow.

Teacher Appreciation #2 and #3 - Thanks

Happy Tuesday!

As promised, I am back with two more teacher appreciation cards.  I couldn't decide 
which one to show you next, so I am going to show them both.

And here is the next one:

I pretty much love both of them and hope the teachers will too!

See you tomorrow!

Gina K. Designs – Fun with Fabulous Foil-Mates Blog Hop

Hello Monday Friends!

Gina K. has received such amazing feedback on the new Foil-Mates, Fancy Foils and dies!  So we decided to put together a special hop for you today!  This blog hop is a blend of a video blog hop featuring tutorials from Gina K. and a few members of the team, as well as a traditional blog hop featuring beautiful cards from other members of the team.

Over the past few weeks, the Foil-Mates products have been flying off the shelves at Gina K. Designs.  Please be assured that if they are out-of-stock, they will quickly be back on the shelves again soon. In fact, Gina just stocked the shelves with a fresh batch of Foil-Mates, Fancy Foils and dies and more are on the way. 

Using the Foil-Mates line makes creating beautiful and shimmery cards so simple.   With many of Gina’s most popular signature colors now available in foil, coordinating your designs with our card stock and ink has never been easier!

We would like to thank Therm O Web for being such a great partner in the Foil-Mates line of products.  Here is a look at the current line of products available now at Gina K. Designs:




We hope you will enjoy the inspiration from the team and then comment on each blog. We will be selecting one lucky commenter at the end of the hop who will win a $50 Gina K. Designs gift certificate!  To see who won, check the Big News Forum a few days after the hop.

Here are a few of the projects I created for today’s hop:

Teacher Appreciation #1 - Thanks

Hello Sunday Friends!

It's time once again to tell the teachers thanks for a great year.  It's hard to believe that summer break is almost upon us.

I've made three similar cards to give out this week.  I'll show you the other two on Tuesday.  On this one I just love the contrast of the kraft card stock with the bright red and green colors.

Are you caught up on your thank you cards?  For once I can say I am.  Woo hoo!

See you tomorrow with a Gina K. Designs blog hop for you.

Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #5 - I Would Be Lost Without You

Happy Saturday!

Today I'm sending my card over to the fifth challenge at Lawn Fawnatics. Here is the current graphic:

I grabbed all the heart colors and used them on my "sad socks" from the Loads of Fun stamp set.  Then I white heat embossed my sentiment and added sequins to finish my card.  This was a quick and easy card....but so much fun!

Have a great day and I'll see you tomorrow.

Deepest Sympathy

Hello Friday Friends!

It's a fact of life that sometimes we have to send sympathy cards.  And they are hard for me to make "in the moment".  So I always find it best to have a few on hand.

This one is made using products from Gina K. Designs.  Here is the stamp set and I can't get enough of it!  It is called Daisy Delight and is designed by Theresa Momber

This set is packed with beautiful images and perfect sentiments.  I find myself reaching for it often!

Have a terrific day and come on back tomorrow!

Color Throwdown #443 - Sending Love

Hello Thursday Friends!

Here is my card for this week's Color Throwdown challenge.  And here is the bright, beautiful, summery and fresh inspiration photo: 

My card actually started when I was experimenting with the tag.  I mixed some Nuvo Mousse with white glitter and applied it with a palette knife through a stencil.  It took a while to dry, but I totally loved it when it was done.  Then I decided to ombre color my LOVE die cut using Copic markers.  But first I applied super fine glitter to it and then colored over it.  The rest was just layering and having some fun.

You can click right here for the link to participate if you would like to play along.  And be sure to check out what all the designers have made to inspire us this week!

See you tomorrow!
