I told you there were lots of Fabulous goodies! WOW!!! 🀩

Here are the cards I want to share made with these sets!

First up is Beautiful Birds by Melanie Muenchinger:

I can’t wait to use the Beautiful Birds in this set, but I was drawn to that Big Bird Nest with those beautiful eggs all nestled in, so that is where I started. After stamping the nest and coloring the eggs with copics, I used a few colored pencils to add more color to the nest. Ink Blending the sky and stamped the branch and flowers in Whisper then colored everything with copics.

Beautiful Birds

For this card I colored in Copic stamped the Nest in two colors and finished it with PrismaColor Pencils. Did a little Ink Blending on the background too. Here is a list of items used:

Next I couldn’t wait to make an Easter card for my Grandkids. The Some Bunny stamp set from Beth Silaika was just what I needed. I did a little ink blending for the sky and grass. The fence is one I have had in my stash that I did a little ink dragging and die cut then layered them up for a sturdy fence. I added a little flower from Lisa Hetrick’s Fearless Joy set.

Here are the items used for this card:

I purposely stamped the flowers and their outline offset. I like that fun look and I cant wait to spend a little more time creating with this set. So many ideas so little time! 😊

Gina K. Designs New Release 9-2019

Hi there! I hope you are having a good week. I wanted to share a couple of cards with you from the Gina K. Designs Newest Release. I used the Card Kit Autumn Splendor stamp set – Colossal Cone Flowers and the Stamp Set – Majestic Peony.

First card I used the Colossal Cone Flowers Stamp set & the Majestic Peony Stamp Set for the greeting! I smooched Distress Ink on a craft Matt a Yellow color and a green, then spritzed with water and placed a piece of watercolor paper on top of the ink. I deliberately left a area open at the top so I could add a blue to look like a sky. Did the same smooching technique! πŸ˜‰ When it was dry I placed it in my Misti and inked up the Image & the Greeting with Obsidian – Amalgam Ink. Finished it off with some bling from my stash.

Gina K. Designs January 2019 Release

Sharing a couple of cards made with the New Stamp Set – Today and Always by: Lisa Hetrick This set is so much fun to create with if you are just wanting to stamp the images or do a water color look. She makes it easy with this set!

Today and Always
Today and Always Watery Background!

Gina K. Designs: Stamp Set – Today and Always
Pure Luxury Card Stock – White Heavy Base Weight, & Blue Lagoon
Premium Dye Ink – Coral Reef, Blue Lagoon, Peach Bellini
Amalgam Ink – Jet Black Connect Glue, Foam Squares
Watercolor Paper, Black Pearls, & Twine

For this card I masked off the top and bottom part leaving a open space. Then I grabbed a acrylic block and inked it up using Gina K. Designs Mini Dye Ink Cubes and smooched ink all over the block. Spritzed the paper lightly and then sprayed the block with the ink on it. Flipped it over and placed in on the watercolor paper in the center that wasn’t masked off. Let is set for a minute and lifted it off. Let it dry really well then placed the panel in my Misti and inked up the flowers and leaves and stamped them. Because it is watercolor paper and has texture I had to stamp then a few times! Same with the Greeting. It is inked up with the Jet Black – Amalgam Ink. Added the panel to a layer of Blue Lagoon Card Stock and add the Twine. Popped it up on a Card Base!

Next Card is one I used the Awesome Polka Dot Stamp that is in this Set! ❀
