Here are a couple projects made using the New Mega Wreath Builder. The First one Features the Newly Released Vibrant Blooms Stamp set! I have really enjoyed using the flowers in this set! 🙂 On this card I used the large Gerber Daisy looking flower and stamped it on a piece of 6″ X 6″ card stock. I started with the Red Velvet, then stamped Coral Reef, Sweet Mango, Wild Dandelion, Jelly Bean Green, Turquoise Sea, Blue Denim, & Wild Lilac. Stamped the Greeting in Jet Black – Amalgam Ink. Layered it on a a piece of Black Onyx Card Stock and used some twine from my stash to tie around it. Added some bling to finish it off.

Still playing with this set……

This next card… Well, I really love this cluster of leaves and had to make another wreath using it and the New Gray Inks! I started with the 4 3/4″ X 4 3/4″ piece of paper and the template that is the same size. I Stamped the leaves in the Soft Stone & Stormy Sky Premium Dye Inks. I then put the wreath in the square position, used the other wreath builder templates on top of my project, then added the first large circle, then the smaller circle. Put a piece of tape over the stencils to hold them together and sponged the Dusty Rose Center. Removed the smaller circle and then stamped the greeting in Jet Black Amalgam Ink & Stamped the Flower in the Jet Black Amalgam Ink on another piece of paper and colored with Pencils. Added this layer to a piece of Soft Stone card stock. Then die cut the flower and Popped it up on the card. Added some bling, twine, and sequins from my stash. The Card Back is 5 1/2″ wide X 6″ tall, I scored a line 1″ from the top of the 6″ side. Attached the Dusty Rose 4 1/4″ X 5 3/8″ panel that has been dry embossed to a Black Onyx panel 4 1/2″ X 5 3/4″. Then added Connect Glue to the top back of the Black Onyx panel so it attaches to the top inch of the card base. Then I popped up the Focal Layer making sure to only attach it to the Dusty Rose layer. The white you see behind the Black Onyx and Focal layers is the card base.

Up Next is You make Me Happy Stamp set used with the Mega Wreath Builder Template.

For the focal area. I used the 4 3/4″ x 4 3/4″ template and piece of white layering weight card stock & added the circles to the center, then sponged the center with Key Lime and Jelly Bean Green. Removed the Circle templates and added the dot stamp from Lisa Hetrick’s Today & Always Stamp Set to the Misti and stamped it around the card. Stamped the flowers and Greeting in Amalgam – Jet Black. Die cut the flowers and jar images. For the jar I used a piece of scrap paper and used Jelly Bean Green and Key Lime to drag across the paper then cut out with the die. Popped up some and then glued the others. Added the bow and layers.

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! ❤

Gina K. Designs January 2019 Release Featuring Open Book By: Melanie Muenchinger

The Illustrators did a fantastic job on their sets and I couldn’t wait to share my cards with you all!

All about Cats
On this card I stamped the Book and Cat on Watercolor paper using the Amalgam Jet Black Ink, my Misti and then grabbed Daniel Smith watercolors and had fu coloring in the cat. While it was drying I stamped the background with the Diagonal Striped Background Stamp in Key Lime and then turned the paper and stamped it again in the Tangerine Twist. Cut the book out and popped it up on the background and layered it with the Black Onyx Card Stock. Then attached it all to the White Heavy Base Card Base.

Gina K. Designs:
Stamp Set – Open Book
Background Stamp – Diagonal Stripes

For my Next Card made with Melanie Muenchinger’s New Open Book Stamp Set, I saw it and wanted to create a card that looked like a color chart or a art journal. So this is what I came up with!

Monthly Mix Challenge

Welcome to my New Blog! ❤

Thank you for stopping by and visiting.   

It is still a work in progress…  🙂  I was looking forward to playing along in Cat’s “My Sentiments Exactly!” Challenge this month. I knew I wanted to do a little Alcohol Ink & Fancy Foils.This technique is so much fun to do and I love that each one turns out different.                                            

This card is for January’s Monthly Mix Challenge MMC12019

  Using Gina K. Designs:

Mini Stamp Set – Grand Greetings

Pure Luxury Card Stock – White Heavy Base and Layering Weight, Black Onyx

Fancy-Foils™ – Silver Glitter

Amalgam Ink – Jet Black

From Squares, Adhesive Dot Runner, Foam Tape

I also used Alcohol Inks and Blending Solution for the background.         When the ink kind of puddles or collects in a area and as it is drying,        before totally dry it is a bit sticky. That is when you can place a piece of the Fancy Foil over it, the sticky ink will grab the foil and leave a bit of the sparkle and shine behind on  your background project. ❤ 

Thank you for stopping by and visiting!

Hope you get a little inky and have a great day!
