Gina K. Designs January 2018 New Release Blog Hop: Day One

Hey Everyone! Happy 2018!


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 Melanie's new Stately Flowers 12 set and my latest stamp set called Emmy & Riley Flamingos. To see everything that is new, simply click on the What's New link on Gina K. Designs website! 


Here is a card which I made with Mel's flower set. I stamped the flowers with Gina K. White ink and then used white embossing powder to really make it pop. I used some spectrum noir markers to color in parts of the flowers to give it some depth.  Sentiment is stamped in black ink. 




The latest stamp set in my collection is named after my twin nieces, Emmy and Riley.  They are identical twins, and until maybe 3 years ago, I could not tell them apart. Seriously! I would have to yell Riley, and when she turned, I would make a mental note of the color she was wearing.  Now they are completely different so I can tell them apart! They are both sassy, smart and fabulous!  That is why some of the mix and match sentiments are very sassy!



This first card features both the flamingos, and some of the mix and match sentiments. I stamped on the kraft base and colored with spectrum noir markers. I used black and pink passion inks for the sentiment! The grass was hand drawn with spectrum noir markers. 




This clean and simple card features one of the fun sentiments! I stamped the image right on the alcohol ink sponged layer (on glossy paper). 



This card features one of the sassy sentiments! I colored the image right on the innocent pink base. Sentiment is a mix of black and pink passion inks. 


This creative group has a few new faces in 2018! Stop by each of them, give them some love and you could be entered for a prize from Gina K. Designs!   There will be one of 3 $25 gift certificates chosen from the comments on ALL the blog posts! So hop over to ALL the blogs and leave some love! Sound fun (and free?)....
