Gina K. Design Team August Blog Hop: Stippled Nature




Welcome to my Gina K. Designs Blog Hop!


 The Design Team for Gina K. Designs welcomes you to another fabulous Inspiration Blog Hop!!! Gina and the Design Team 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 deeply etched, pre-cut Gina K. Designs stamps! To see the full list of winners check the Big News forum at Stamp TV a couple of days after the hops!!









  • My cards are done with my first stamp set, released in July with Gina K. designs. The first set puts me in a back-to-school mood. I love the apple, and since it is two step, you can easily add the stem in another color. Rock and Roll technique would work beautifully with this stamp. I am going to put this card in my stash for the end of the school year.

     I used a kraft base and some wisteria lane designer paper, along with a strip of the red hot card stock! I used a small brown button from my big button stash! 
     

     This second card was created with a kraft base and some of Gina K.
    luxury white card stock. I used the distress honey, rust and mustard inks with the flower from the Stippled nature set.


     A trio of buttons from my stash on the sentiment die cut finishes the design.

    Here is a super simple birthday card. I stamped the flower on white three times with teal zeal ink and then the leaves with pistachio ink.  The sentiment is stamped in teal zeal ink on the kraft base.


    There is a clear dew drop in the center of the flower. I added a small hint of bling with a sakura gel pen.  


      Here is a card with an autum feel using the new card stock, ribbon and designer paper from Gina's collection. I used the acorn and sentiment from Stippled Nature. 
      Finally, I made this super easy card with some fun designer paper from Gina K. I don't normally make purple cards, but I thought that the flower would look great in this color!


      The flower is attached with a foam square - with a small purple button in the center.


    I am going to be sharing MORE samples of Stippled nature tomorrow - so stop back tomorrow morning for another few samples!

    27. Your samples are all beautiful. I appreciate the simplicity and elegance. Sometimes I get discouraged because I feel I can't get the more difficult tasks done and ignore my stamps for a while. (I have left side paralysis due to stroke.) Your designs give me hope and inspiration to get inky! Bless you.

    28. I'm a true fan of good CAS cards, and yours certainly qualify. You've done the stamp set proud. ;-) The stippling effect is really nice, I think. It's reminiscent of what my stamping looked like when I first started!!! Ha....
