Here is a card made using the New Stamp Set Holiday Trees by: Beth Silaika I have really enjoyed playing with this set. As soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to make some Poppin’ Pink Trees. So this is how it turned out! ❤

Holiday Trees!

I lined up the tree in my Misti and stamped that fun tree 5 times to fit on the 2 1/8″ x 5″ White Layering Weight Panel with a Black Onyx under it. The Greeting is stamped in Obsidian Amalgam Ink on a 1″ x 3 6/8″ panel and backed with Black Onyx Card Stock attached with foam squares over the ribbon. All this sits on tip of a 4″ x 5 1/4″ White Layer that was stamped with the Diagonal Stripe Background stamp Inked up in Popping Pink Electro Pop Neon Ink.

Here is the supplies I used to make this fun Christmas Card.

Then I pulled out the New set Pallet Christmas by: Melanie Muenchinger along with her Perfect Pallets set. All the little images in this set allow you to create a wonderful scene and of course pair with the Perfect Pallet set for some really great cards! Lots of ides for this set!

I Love this Pallet set and the Pallet Christmas has been fun to create all kinds of cool cards! I did the Ink Dragging Technique that Gina Shared recently in a video. After I stamped the Line art image of the pallet in Warm Cocoa, I used the solid image of the same pallet and used Sandy Beach to drug across the stamp. Then I did a little dragging of Kraft on the ends of the stamp so it would be a little darker. On the little trees I did the same technique. Stamped in the Greeting & Snowflakes then used the Fancy Labels Dies to die cut this panel. Added some twine and then popped it up on a embossed panel.

Supplies Used for this card:

I couldn’t resist using the Christmas Script stamp set along with the Tall Pines Background stamp set to create a snowy scene! I first made some snow hills by lightly blending some blue ink around the edge of a mask. Moved the mask up a bit and blended more ink. Then blending ink around the edges and towards the center. Stamped the background stamp using the Ink Dragging Technique and some Fresh Asparagus Ink. I used a gel pen to add some snow to the trees. Put the panel in my Misti and stamped the Greeting with Obsidian Amalgam Ink. 🙂

GKD – Flashback Friday

Hi Friends! Welcome to my blog! Today is Flashback Friday and I have a couple of cards to share with you! First is this card that I did a little watercolor on!

Really enjoyed watercoloring this poinsettia and really like that there is a set of dies if you want to cut it out! ❤ It is a great size to watercolor.

Gina K. Designs Supplies Used:

https://linkdeli.com/widget.js?1559654439292

Other Items used: Twine, Watercolor Paper, Daniel Smith Watercolors

Next is a card made using stamp set: Very Merry Christmas

I love this set by Emily Loggans & I think I am going to have to pull this set out to create a few cards like this! I stamped the background music stamp on the White layering weight card stock using Kraft Premium Dye Ink the did a little ink blending with Sandy Beach over the whole panel. Adding a little more ink on the outer edges. I didn’t add to much of the Sandy Beach ink to the middle as I wanted to leave it more white so I could add the Turquoise Sea after I stamped the greeting in Embossing Ink & heat embossed it using GKD Fine Detail Embossing Powder. I also die cut the topper to the ornament and then added the embossing ink all over it and then heat embossed it in GKD Silver Embossing Powder. Stamped and Die cut the Holly leaves and foiled them using the Turquoise Sea Fancy Foil and I had a piece of the stripes left over from another project so those got added to the side! All product are listed below!

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.
