Gina K. Designs + Hero Arts Celebrating Hero Arts 45th Anniversary

Congratulations to Hero Arts for 45 years of creative inspiration!

This set is a fabulous set to celebrate with. Illustrator and Artist Hannah Schroepfer from Gina K. Designs drew this gorgeous spray of roses and it was so much fun coloring. I will get lots of practice with this set! ❤ Here is this Beautiful Set – Friendship Blooms

Friendship Blooms

First card I did a little No Line Watercoloring. I love how larger this flower set is!

The watercoloring was done with some Color Burst Powders after Stamping the Beautiful Flower image in Gina K. Designs Whisper Amalgam Ink. I had a lot of fun coloring this one! ❤

Next I wanted to use some of Gina K. Designs Soft Stone Card Stock to color some white flowers on! ❤ Stamped the Image in Stormy Sky Premium Dye Ink and colored with my Prismacolor Pencils.

This was colored with a White and Gray 70% and a 30% pencil and the two greens. I do like the way the pencils show up on the gray card stock.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you take a little time to get inky! ❤

I used the Vibrant Blooms Stamp Set and Matching Dies along with the Thick Brush Stencil for my first card! ❤ Attached the Stencil with Pixie Spray to a layer of Jelly Bean Green card stock and brushed on Fresh Asparagus Ink. Adding some Liquid Pixie Dust over the leaves. Used a piece of Bristol Smooth Paper and some Kraft Ink to my glass mat and spritzed with water. Placed the paper over the ink and rubbed it around to pick up the color. Let it dry and cut out the panel with the Decorative Dies then stamped the sprig of leaves in Skeleton Leaves. Then stamped the Flower and Leaves on left over piece of the Bristol paper. Colored with Zig Clean Color Markers and Die cut them out with the coordinating Dies. Then added a tiny strip of Black Onyx Card stock instead of ribbon.

Vibrant Blooms!

Supplies Used on this card are:

Gina K Designs – Vibrant Blooms Stamp Set, Vibrant Blooms Die Set Thick Brush Stencil Pure Luxury Card Stock – White Heavy Base, Black Onyx, & Jelly Bean Green Premium Dye Ink – Fresh Asparagus, Kraft & Black Onyx Amalgam Ink – Skeleton Leaves Decorative Label Dies Adhesive Dot Runner, Foam Squares, and Connect Glue *Pixie Spray Stencil Adhesive from Therm-O-Web *Picket Fence Life Changing Brushes

InkOn3 – Liquid Pixie Dust brushed on the stencil leaves with a dry water brush. The sparkle is so pretty, it is hard to catch on a card, but you can see a little. 🙂

The Next card is made using the New Bad & Boujee Stamp Set & coordinating Bad & Boujee Dies. I started with some Bristol Smooth Paper and Passionate Pink Premium Dye Ink and smooched it onto my glass mat, spritzed with water and then moved my paper over it to pick up the ink. Grabbed the Sun Spots Stencil and brushed on some Passionate Pink Ink. Stamped the Lips in Passionate Pink and used the Liquid Pixie Dust as lip gloss on the lip image! Die Cut the work Kisses 3 times in Passionate Pink Card Stock and Once in Black Onyx. Attached them together with Connect Glue and off set the Black Layer so it would have a pink shadow.

Stamping Friends Trifecta Blog Hop

Stamping Friends Trifecta Blog Hop

Hi Everyone!!! Thank you for joining us today for this Awesome Collaboration with Gina K. Designs, My Sweet Petunia and Picket Fence Studio. How exciting is it for three wonderful companies to come together to share some Fun and Inspiration!?!

Todays We are showcasing some amazing items. Some Fabulous Gina K. Designs Stamps and Dies. The incredible Misti and the New Cut-Align Tool from My Sweet Petunia. What wonderful tools these are. Along with the Life Changing Brushes from Picket Fence Studios and a couple of their Wonderful Stencils. I have to say, I don’t think I’ll ever use a sponge dauber for blending ever again! ❤

These Three Fabulous Companies are Each giving a $50.00 Gift Certificate to their Shops! That is 3 – $50.00 Gift Certificates, and you have a chance of winning one of them! What do you have to do? Well… Leave Comment on all the blogs in the hop and Winners will be announced on the company blogs no later than June 7th. 

For my first card I had fun with this beautiful Peacock Stencil and my Blending Brushes! I used my Pixie Spray to hold down the stencil and then I grabbed some Gina K. Designs Premium Dye Inks and got to blending! Then I used a piece of Velum and my Mini MISTI and stamped the word Best and heat embossed it. I used my Cut-Align tool to trim it down to a nice small strip to go across my card! I do love that I can easily cut my greeting into small strips.

I then used the word Die – Wishes and cut out the word across the peacock. Then 1 in Black & 3 in white card stock. Glued the words together so they are stacked. I couldn’t get enough of the Peacock and the Blending Brushes so I stenciled some on the inside of the card to dress it up as well. I masked off around the stencil so I could just get the side of the peacock stenciled in and still leave some space to write.

My second card was a fun one to create as well! I started by using Picket Fence Studios Stencil – Pineapple Collage. A piece of White Layering Weight Card Stock and some Pixie Spray – stencil spray. Then I used the Life Changing Brushed and Gina K. Designs Dye Inks to get this stenciled inked up! I love the little brush because I used a smaller one and I was able to get in to the top of the pineapple and add the green color! ❤

I used this panel for a background on my card. I also Die cut a tag and then ran the stencil and the tag through the embossing machine. I did leave a area at the bottom so I could stamp my greeting. I blended some ink on the tag and placed it in my Misti and stamped the greeting “Summer” at the bottom. Then I used the Hello Die and Cut out 3 from a piece of Black Onyx Card Stock and glued them together to give it more dimension.

So while creating and playing with my Alcohol Ink and Gina K. Fancy Foils, I decide I wanted to try using Gina K.’s Amalgam Ink on one of the panels. Well, I inked up my stamp and after I stamped it, I though… it didn’t work. But what I didn’t realize, was that what ever the Amalgam Ink was made of, it reacted to the Alcohol Inks. I was able to do a Ink Lift with Gina K. Amalgam Inks. I was so excited to share it with you! Here is a video I made to share the fun with you all! I do hope you will try it soon! 🙂

Here are two cards I did some ink lifting on!
