Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember Collaboration with Gina K. Designs






 Big News! SimonSaysStamp.com is releasing an exclusive stamp set designed for STAMPtember by Gina K at 12:01am ET Thursday, September 7! It is WHILE SUPPLIES LAST, so do not wait! And the stamp set also has a set of dies that can be purchased that coordinate with it!  

Here is is! Cute? Right?


Today I am part of an amazing group who is showing off this new stamp set by Gina K. For my card, I want to show those beautiful birch trees. The background is a mixture of alcohol inks in a variety of colors.  I stamp the sentiment in black ink on the glossy paper. Finally, I use a white gel pen to make snowflakes and residue of snow filled branches. The sentiment is stamped in black ink on the heavy Gina K. white card base.



Thank you for stopping by my STAMPtember blog post! Now Hop on over to these fabulous designers and take a peek:

Gina K Designs September Inspiration Blog Hop: Day 2 {Todd Turtle & Perfect Poinsettia}

Hi Everyone!


Today, The Cast and Crew for Gina K.Designs welcomes you to a blog hop celebrating the new stamp sets by the illustration team from Gina K. Designs!  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 Todd Turtle & Perfect Poinsettia.

Here is Todd Turtle:

And here is Claire's Perfect Poinsettia

First, Claire's set was fun to work with, despite the fact that it is still summer here in New York.  I used versamark and the Foliage art stencils on the background. I stamped the flower portion on the red card stock.  Then I added some gold glitter to the center. The leaves were stamped on white card stock with the pine ink. 





Here is my first card using Todd Turtle. I absolutely love turtles and when we were in Hawaii, one of my favorite memories was swimming with the turtles.  They are so beautiful and graceful! Here is my first card.  I stamped the turtle with black ink on ocean mist card stock.  I added a layer of black to make it pop! 



This card was super fun to make - using glossy paper and alcohol markers. I made this a blue crab, even though he isn't blue <wink> anymore! He was mounted to the card with some foam squares after I fussy cut him out!





Nothing could be a more perfect fit that the Water Droplets stencil  with my last three stamp sets: Vicky Mermaid, Karen Mermaid and now Todd Turtle.  It was easy to use a dauber on the background with the ocean mist, blue lagoon and turquoise sea inks.  Those colors, now that I think of it, are made for these sets too! The tag is stamped with back ink and tied off with some twine for a nautical look. I used a white gel pen on the dots for some dimension. The starfish was colored with spectrum noir markers (just a hint of color for some depth).

I used some glossy paper on this main image - with alcohol markers and black ink on the floral bunches and sentiments. I love the background so much!
