Card Stock Colors - Dark Chocolate, Ivory Layering, Ivory Heavy, Honey Mustard, Cranberry Tart, Fresh Asparagus and Prickly Pear


Today I am sharing some cards which I created with this StampTV kit. 

This kit reminds me of the reason why I started stamping. I saw a card made with this awesome leaf set WAY back when and fell in love with the details of the leaves. I loved how the colors of the inks changed the look of the stamps. This card is what my September and October look like. The cool August and September nights are upon us which causes the tint in the leaves.  I love the cranberry base making the leaf colors pop!


this card uses square punched pieces with the leaves from the StampTV kit on a kraft base




This card uses a small strip of the designer paper from the August Wishes paper pack! It is a great card for a fall boy birthday!


This simple pick me up to send to a friend uses ivory paper and some spectrum noir markers.

Beth’s Keep Calm stamp set


It’s not too late to make your project or special cards because students and teachers will be back in the classroom.

WAIT!!! DID SOMEONE SAY BACK TO SCHOOL??? 
 In our house, we have a child that considers the "s" word forbidden in the summer! She hates the early back to school commercials on tv and the radio! I'm not even telling her about this hop! Ha ha!

I created this first card on the new jelly bean card stock.  I love this color green! I stamped the apple {from Stippled Nature} in the jelly bean and then stamped the sentiment {from Keep Calm} in black! What a great card for your kid's lunch bag for the first day of school! This is a 4x4 square card.


Wouldn't this next card be cute for your child to hand to their new teacher on their first day of school? This apple is from Bounty of Blessings and the sentiment is from Keep Calm! Both were stamped in black, but the apple was colored in with spectrum noir markers.

Gina K. Designs Blog Hop: The Wetlands

Gina, along with the 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 a random comment and that stamper will win a grab bag of Gina K. Designs products! To see the full who won check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hop. 




This card uses the elements from Theresa's set (The Wetlands)

I love the masculine images from the set - Of course I used them to make some Father's Day cards! I kept them both Clean & Simple so that the image is the focal point! I used a watercolor brush with some chalks for this card! A few embossed lines under the sentiment really keeps with the clean design of the card!  




The images would also make great masculine birthday or thank you notes! Don't you think!  Again - chalked watercolored images with the Dad sentiment.  I emboss framed the main image!

CAS Monday: Many Thanks sunset





Another CAS Monday and another thank you note.  I had to make a TON of thank you notes the other day!  Making them with a watercolor wash is super easy, plus you can add just about any sentiment.  This  watercolor base pre folded card is perfect for those quick thank you notes. It is a wash of yellows and oranges, with a few sequins and a black ink sentiment from Lots of Lines. Drying time took a bit of time, so this wasn't a super quick card. But you can easily mass produce this card if you have the pre-folded cards and the patience to watercolor several at a time!

CAS Monday: Triple Rainbow thanks







Thanks for stopping by for another Clean & Simple Monday.  I created this rainbow thank you card with my Lots of Thanks stamp set.  I stamped the sentiment three times in black ink after creating the rainbow wash on watercolor paper. I love the way this card turned out!

And if you are a fan of clean and simple cards - subscribe to the blog or check back each Monday morning for a clean and simple card using Gina k. supplies!

I had to make some sympathy cards, which is not my favorite thing to do - but with the clean sentiment and the beautiful flowers, it was super easy.  I love popping out the flowers, with and without the frame. 
This first one with an ivory base uses moonlit fog and bubblegum inks. I used a little light pink spectrum noir marker on the edge to give it some additional color. I layered the flowers and topped them with a pink gem. 

 



This card uses sweet corn base and ink.  I popped the center circle up and used moonlit fog ink for the sentiment. The rose was stamped with sweet corn ink on die cut white paper. The honey mustard was used for the second step in the two-step rose. I then went over the darker ink with a yellow sakura pen to give it some shimmer. The leaves stamped on white in moonlit fog ink.
