The Cast and Crew for Gina K Designs welcomes you to another fabulous blog hop celebrating the new stamp release for February by our illustrator team! 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 stamp sets by Beth Silaika, Claire Brennan and our new Incentive set, Vintage Rose.
These stamp sets are so fun and versatile! You will be able to create amazing card projects using each individual set or by combining the images and sentiments from multiple sets from this release. Have fun and be creative!
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. Ready for some inspiration? Here are a few of the projects I have created for today’s hop:
Look how beautifully these gorgeous eggs from Springtime Baskets emboss! I used Gina K Gold embossing powder and her gorgeous gold metallic card stock as a mat. Coloring with pencil on black card stock can really make those images pop. And little tip? If you want a nice highlight? Put a layer of white down first. Then add your color. I did that for the blue egg. And burnished a portion of it with my white pencil, rather than my blender pencil.
This fun sentiment inspired this silly card. I used a gray sketch paper for this card, so I would have a bit of a rougher surface to hold lots of white prismacolor pencil.
Which came first? The chicken or the egg? I used Copic markers to color this speckled little Spring Fling peep.
And these? Tiny little lunchbox notes. Here's your chance to use up those 1/8" tiny google-y eyes you bought in 1994 for your kids' thumbprint Valentines. (This is me: Those bags of eyes are so small! Theres only 300. I'd better buy two!) Well. You're in luck! They fit perfectly on the cute little Spring Fling froggy and are bound to make someone giggle.
Thanks for visiting today!
Enjoy the hop!
