This set is named for my daughter, Isabella, who we call Bella.  

The flag is one of the add on elements and this sentiment fits perfectly in it!

The elephant also comes with other elements such as flowers for Bella to hold! The sentiment is from Hippo Bird Day! <3

Here is a watercolored background card with Bella! 


I found the fairy in the sweet thing set and fell in love - look how cute she is!


Here is the fairy again with a strip of stars



The So Cool Set has a bunch of adorable ice creams with matching sentiments. I watercolored this!

Same cute sentiment, but different ice cream cone.  I used spectrum noir markers to color in the ice cream cone!

We hope to inspire you with some beautiful card projects as you hop along to each of the designer’s blogs! Today, we are featuring two stamp sets by Therea Momber and Melanie Muenchinger.

This first card made a great thank you note for a friend.  Stamped with black ink and colored with spectrum noir markers. 


Similar stamps, different colors and the look is so completely different.  White ink on the rust card stock makes this thank you note pop!


The butterflies in the French Flair set make for coloring fun! These stained glass were simply made with stamping the butterfly in black and using spectrum noir to give each butterfly a unique look!



This clean and simple thank you note has a little sparkle with the help of a glitter pen!


This clean and simple sympathy card uses the butterflies stamped in white on blue.  It uses a sympathy sentiment from a previous Gina K. Set.

Gina K. Inspiration Blog Hop: May 2016, Day 2



The Cast and Crew for Gina K Designs welcomes you to another fabulous blog hop celebrating the new stamp sets from the May StampTV Release Party! We hope to inspire you with some beautiful card projects as you hop along to each of the designer’s blogs! Today, we are featuring two stamp sets by Beth Silaika and Claire Brennan.

The first set we are featuring is Sophie Pig by Beth Silaika. Beth has created a super cute set second set with the sweetest images and matching sentiments to make the perfect card project to make the card recipient smile or feel better right away! The second and third sets we are featuring are by our new Illustrator Claire Brennan. The sets are Old Country Roses and Fine Feathers. With Claire’s Old Country Roses set, you can create beautiful layered stamped images that make the most beautiful and soft roses that look like you have picked them right out of your own rose garden. Claire’s Fine Feathers set is a collection of fun feathers that are a perfect focal image to create a message of inspiration, hope, thanks and more! We are so very lucky to have Claire’s illustrator talents on our team!

Claire's stamp sets are now available at Gina K. Designs!






Here is my sample of Fine Feathers: I used black card stock with white ink for the feather, then brushed it with gold pearl ex powder.  The photo makes it look blue, but in real life it shimmers. 

Here is a card with Claire's Old Country Roses set - I forgot how fun it is to multi step stamp!


Now get ready for Sophie Samples! This is my sweet inspiration.  Sophie has been obsessed with pigs since she was a baby, so I created this set for her (and it's being released on her birthday weekend).  Happy 11th Princess Sophie!





 Clean and simple with some grass from Country Roads 2.



The pig and cupcake are relatively easy to stamp and trim to layer!


the puddle is full of shimmering water, courtesy of glitter! 


Who doesn't want to pig out on cupcakes for their birthday?



The incentive stamp provides a great background for Sophie Pig



I created 16 of these for Sophie's birthday thank you notes.
Super quick and simple!






Graduation card? complete with a cap and gold tassel (for honors of course)



Pig out in purple! 



The incentive stamp makes a great background for Sophie!



Quick and easy stamping with Sophie!


A variation of colors for Sophie, just Pig-cause!
