Gina K. Designs Inspiration Blog Hop – Day 1


Happy Monday!

The Cast and Crew for Gina K. Designs welcomes you to another fabulous blog hop celebrating the new stamp sets by Gina K. and the illustrator team from Gina K. Designs!  We hope to inspire you with some beautiful card projects as you hop along to each of the designer’s blogs.  Today we are featuring the lovely new stamp sets by Melanie Muenchinger and Theresa Momber.


Here are the two stamp sets, which I know you will love!




For my card (pictured above) using Melanie's newest stamp set, Stately Flowers 11, I used the Indian Paintbrush stamp to ink around a masked circle.  Then I added an ink blended frame to encircle my sentiment (from the newest incentive set).  I popped up my panel onto a white card stock base to give the card lots of dimension.



Now here is my card using Theresa's newest set, Daisy Delight:



I'm not sure if you can tell, but I used black foil on one of Gina's new Foil-Mates to create my background.  Then I stamped the sweet daisy cluster and colored it in with Copic markers.  I added some Nuvo Crystal Drops to the flower centers.  Finally, I die cut the mat and daisy panel and applied them to my card base using some foam tape for dimension.

So that's it for me for today, but before I go, I want you to welcome Juliana Michaels to the Cast and Crew for Gina K. Designs.  Juliana has been a project designer in the paper craft/scrapbook industry since 2007 and has worked for many top manufacturers in the craft world.   Her projects have been published in a variety of magazines and idea books.  You will instantly fall in love with her projects!

Enjoy the gorgeous inspiration samples from the team and then comment on each blog for your chance to win a $20 Gina K. Designs gift certificate!  To see who won, check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hop.

Such original cards! I spotted the first card with the Indian Paintbrush flower around the circle and wondered what stamp it was; now I know. Great idea. Your daisy card is beautiful. The Nuvo Drops look like sequins. Love them.

What an unusual way to use the stamp in card one. I love that idea! The daisy card is more traditional but I really like how the focal point oval seems to pop with the simple dot background. Beautiful job on both cards!

love them all...

Elaine said...

Wonderful cards...thank you!

Verna Angerhofer said...

Beautiful cards and so clever the way you used the Indian Paintbrush image to create a pattern design to showcase the sentiment.

Tanya Lochridge said...

I really love how you masked off the circle and used the flower stamp. Looks completely different than just using the stamp as is. Great ideas here -- it's been fun to see everyone's creations using the same stamps and getting such different results. Thanks for sharing your techniques and talent!

Macimbalo said...

Love your cards! I just bought the Foil mates at the Anaheim Stamp EXPO convention so your use of the black dots for the background is a definite go for me. I love it with the hint of yellow and orange.
