Shabby Spring StampTV Kit Blog Hop

 Welcome to the Shabby Spring StampTV kit blog hop! Today the members of the Gina K. design team are sharing some samples created with the Shabby Spring Stamp TV Kit.

Here are the samples which I created with the kit! 

This is oceans mist and white ink on oceans mist card stock. I randomly stamped images on the base and then stamped Happy Birthday from Lots of Lines in oceans mist on Gina K. white card stock. The prima flower in orange with the ocean mist button really provide a nice contrast.

The sentiment really makes this card so special! I love it.  A few sequins add the right touch of bling! I used a little strip of the striped paper on the side of the card and colored the umbrella with copic markers!

Finally, the one large bunch stamp set is great in Gina K. white ink on any color card base. Mix and match sentiments to create endless possibilities! 

 Take a peek at what the other designers created!

Gina K. Designs Blog Hop: Just a note!

Today is the last day of the Gina K. Designs blog hop for the month! What a fun release this has been.  Today we are featuring Just A Note by Rupa Shevde.

This first card is super easy to create, but what a great sentiment! I used innocent for the image and black for the sentiment. What a great card to send to a friend who might need a pick-me-up!

This next card uses the envelope from Just a note and the sentiment. I colored the envelope with copics.

 This final card features the guitar from the set, along with the hexagon images from Lots of Washi, along with the 8 and rocks from Lots of Dots Alphabet.  Super fun card which I made for Debbie's daughter, Molly!

Gina K. Blog Hop: Signs of Spring & Folk Filigree

The first card features the sentiment from Theresa's set, along with a fun border using Lots of Washi. I used a few  black sequins to give the card some bling!
This next card was created using a white base and a dark sage element, stamped with white ink. The sentiment is also from Theresa's set and stamped with white ink. I used some microscopic pearls on some of the leaves and created some bakers twine. 
Becky's stamp set is quite fun, so it is easy to create some adorable clean & simple cards.  Here is a card using the banner and sentiment from her set, along with some micro black gems.

This is a clean and simple valentine using Becky's set. You and Me are all separate sentiments in the set - as is the heart, which is stamped in cherry red. A little bakers twine at the top tied in a bow finished the card!
 The wreath and elements are from Becky's Folk Filigree set, but the sentiment is from Melanie's set - how cute does that look with a little baker's twine on the bottom?

Gina K. Blog Hop: Introducing Stately Flowers 8, Lots of Washi

 Today I am featuring this month's stamp sets which includes Melanie's Stately Flowers 8 and my Lots of Washi

The first card features the beautiful sentiment from Melanie's set.  I love this verse!  I stamped it in black, and then added a band using Lots Of Washi.
 The iris is one of my favorite flowers. I stamped it it black and used a watercolor pen and Gina K. inks. The sentiment is also from her set. 
This card features the conjoined circles and a sentiment from Stippled Nature. Super simple and clean.

 This card features Lots of Dots & Lots of Washi. I stamped the dots and sentiment from Stately Flowers in grey ink and the conjoined circle layers in sweet corn. I used a button and some custom bakers twine on the ribbon.

 This card features the sentiment from Lovely Ladybugs. The pink passion banner features a stamp from Lots of Washi.

 I made this valentine with my new stamp set Lots of Washi.

I stamped the circle strip with versamark on the 2.5 x 3.5 artist trading card size piece of card stock.  I printed the sentiment on white card stock and added some hearts with Becky's new Folk Filigree set.

These are mini whoopee cushions - the perfect valentine gift for a

  4th grade boy to give out to his classmates! A shout out to Heather Courtney who shared a Pinterest link about whoopee valentines! Thanks my crafty friend!

Here is a card which I created faux washi tape strips using Lots of Washi & Lots of Dots. The sentiment is from Signs of Spring by Theresa Momber. The frame is from Lots of Dots Alphabet. A few sequins adorn the card to give it some sparkle!

Finally, here is a card which I created with Lots Of Washi and Lots of ThanksIt uses custom bakers twine.  I made a video showing the process of creating this card.  Hope you like it!

StampTV kit: Journey of the Heart Blog Design Team Hop

The Cast and Crew for Gina K Designs welcomes you to another fabulous Inspiration Blog Hop! Gina and Cast and Crew  will inspire you with many beautiful ideas! And as you hop through their blogs, make sure to leave a comment on each of them because we will choose a few random comments and those stampers will each win a grab bag of Gina K. Designs products! To see the full list of winners check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hops.

Here is a peek at the kit!
I really enjoy playing with new stamps and bringing them into my craft room to see what I can create. The first card was created with the berry bunch using Gina K. using passionate pink. The sentiment from the same set is done in black ink. Super simple and clean.  I find myself using clean and simple layouts much more these days, how about you?   

This next card was super simple too - using turquoise sea and grass green inks. Simple layout using a grass green card base with an offset layer of white.  A few sequins to kick the par-tay up a notch!

 I already had the turquoise sea and grass green inks out on my desk, so I combined them with sweet corn and a hint of black (using the Gina K. gingham ribbon) to make this soothing card, which can be a sympathy card or a get well card. 

finally, here is a cute little valentine which I made using the kit! The adorable birds look so cute sitting on that branch!  It was literally a 2 minute card. Kraft base, pink passion and dark chocolate inks. This would be so easy to create using the other sentiment for an anniversary!
