Hi everyone! Gina K and the team have received such amazing feedback on the new Foil-Mates, Fancy Foils and dies that we have 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 and 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 will be on the way.
If you are new to Foil-Mates, they are used to step-up the shimmer and shine in your card projects! Creating cards is never more easy and beautiful when you work with this new line of foil products. From beautiful pre-printed Foil-Mates, to stunning colors of Fancy Foils, when you combine them together the outcome is stunning! Discover how many various combinations of different cards and invitations you are able to create with Gina’s Foil-Mates products. With many of Gina’s most popular signature colors now available in foil, coordinating with Gina K Designs 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.
Enjoy the gorgeous inspiration samples from the team and then comment on each blog. We will be selecting one lucky commenter at the end of the hop from a combination of all three days of comments and that person will win a $50 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:
Elegant Florals, Stars and Stripes and Birthday Essentials Foil Mates,
Passionate Pink and Grass Green Fancy Foils,
Single Stitched and Double Stitched Square dies.
Fill It With Flowers stamp set. Image painted with watercolors. I used a slide trimmer to cut the top and bottom of the panel just up to the leaves, then hand trimmed around the leaves, so they would jut out from the trimmed panel.
Swirls and Flourishes and True Friend Foil Mates,
Turquoise Sea Fancy Foil
Single Stitched and Double Stitched Circle dies
