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!

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.

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!

  56. Beth: The blue-ish color that appears on my screen, is calling my name, when I look at this “Fine Feathers” card. It is one of my very favorite colors. I have never used one of these multilayering stamps, but apparently I am really missing out. Sophie is so cute and “punny,” I can hardly wait to use her set. You have made so many cards, it is obvious that she is quite useful!!!

  57. Your Fine Feathers card blew me away. Beautiful technique. And Princess Sophie's little pal is too cute for words! What a great set.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Great stamp set! I love all your piggy cards. Happy Birthday to your Sweet Sophie!
    You feather and rose cards are both beautiful as well. I love the contrast of the shimmery feather against the black. (I could see a bit of the colours once I knew it was there) :)
    Thank you for sharing your beautiful work!
