The Cast and Crew for Gina K Designs welcomes you to another fabulous blog hop celebrating the new stamp release for December 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 the stamp sets by Beth Silaika and Claire Brennan.

These stamp sets are so fun and versatile! You will be able to create amazing card projects using each individual set or by combining the images and sentiments from multiple sets from this release. Have fun and be creative!


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. 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?
