To see who won, check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hop. Ready for some inspiration? Here are a few of the projects I have created for today’s hop:


This first card features the Hero set - I love the little yellow submarine and fish! Colored with spectrum noir markers! 


This card is actually edible eggplant (photographed so dark, sorry) with white ink. I colored the stars and moon with a stardust jelly pen

 This heroine set card is an innocent pink 4 inches square base. I used black ink for the cloud and colored it in with white ink and a wet watercolor brush. The birds are colored with spectrum noir markers. Super clean and simple card!


This card features the hot air balloon and clouds from the heroine set. I love all the sentiments in this set. All images are stamped in black (on ivory Gina K. base) and colored with spectrum noir markers. 


This card is a bubblegum pink base with black in, colored with spectrum noir markers. I love to think of the zebra in a variety of colors! 
This Xavier Zebra card features the leaf background on white card base with jelly bean green ink. The zebra is stamped and hand trimmed. It is fairly simple to trim up quick! Sentiment in black ink.


This small watercolor paper base features a green and blue Xavier Zebra. Image colored with spectrum noir markers. Sentiment in black ink.

 This small watercolor paper on a fresh asparagus base highlights a watercolor green and blue background. Side images colored with gina k inks and a wet watercolor brush on a sheet of watercolor paper. I stamped the leaf and flower images in black and trimmed them and adhered them to the side of the main image. Sentiment in black ink.



This toucan (the kids want me to call it Todd the Toucan), is stamped in black, hand trimmed and colored with spectrum noir markers. The vine is also stamped in black on the ivory base. The sentiment is hard to see in the photo, but it is stamped in ivory ink on the black card stock. It says "a little toucan of my friendship"

 This final card features an ocean mist base with some watercolor paper for the main image. The Todd Toucan, vine and flowers were stamped in black ink and colored with the spectrum noir markers. The sentiment is in black ink!

Question: What other animal images would you like for the collection?

This first card is stamped with black ink on lovely lavender card stock. I stamped the egg insides with various gina k. colors (jelly bean, ocean mist, passionate pink and lovely lavender). The card measures 4.25 squared.



This innocent pink ink with the flowers on innocent pink card features the sentiment in black ink. The main teddy image is on watercolor paper. I watercolored the teddy and heart.  



This clean and simple card features the lake, rower and mountain images from Theresa's set. I used some spectrum noir markers to define the stamps.    


I used sandy beach card stock with black ink on this card. I stamped the frame and tree image on a piece of sandy beach, then layered it on an A2 card. I applied some white ink with a wet watercolor brush and sprinkled on some Gina K. prismatic frozen glitter to the wet ink to make it sparkle.

Gina K Designs – October Inspiration Blog Hop – Day 3


October 2016 – Ian Moose and Claire’s sets
Inspiration Blog Hop - Day Three


The Cast and Crew for Gina K Designs welcomes you to another fabulous blog hop celebrating the new Home for the Holidays StampTV Kit and a number of gorgeous stamp sets by our illustrator team! 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 Beth Silaika’s new “Ian Moose” stamp set and Claire Brennan’s new stamp sets: Nordic Winter, ‘Tis the Season, Festive Foliage and Compliments of the Season. Beth’s set, “Ian Moose” is the most adorable moose with cute accompanying images and fun sentiments! Claire’s stamp sets are the best in classic and traditional stamps celebrating this holiday season!   




Enjoy the gorgeous inspiration samples from the team and then comment on each blog for your chance to win a $20 Gina K Designs gift certificate! To see who won, check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hop.


The first card with Claire's set is from Nordic Winter

Clean & Simple all the way!


This next card was exactly what I saw when I first saw the set - a 1980's winter sweater that I wore to a retreat in the Adirondacks with my church's youth Group. Stamped image and then trimmed out the v neck collar and added the collar detail. Buttons finish the design!


This uses those beautiful fonts from 'Tis the Season

Faint images of snowflakes in the watercolored area (from the incentive set)













The pretty fonts pair so nicely with the designer paper which Gina is releasing this month!


Are you ready for Ian? He was named after my sister's son (who turns two this week)!  They have a mutual love of moose and the Adirondacks! 


I wanted to show that Ian can also be used for love notes or valentines! 


The moose antics continue with other images in the set - these cardinals love to stir up fun!



I made this simple tag with a strip of the designer paper from Gina's set and some fun coloring!



I made sure that Ian was dressed warm - he has ear muffs and can even be dressed in an ugly sweater for the holidays!


Here is a card made with the Holly Jolly Incentive set!


This is also made with the Holly Jolly incentive set - pairs so well with the designer paper from this month's Gina K. release!
