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

Welcome to day two of the Gina K. Designs new release blog hop. Today we are featuring Theresa's Enchanted Garden, Lisa Hetrick's You Are set and Claire Brennan's Geo Thanks set.



The Enchanted Garden set is so cute. It reminds me of Finding Neverland (love that musical)....made me cry! 
I stamped the fairy dust first with black ink and then sprinkled it with glitter and heat embossed it. The dust actually glitters (hard to see in the photo). The fairy and sentiment are also stamped in black. I used watercolors for the background and then used a white gel pen to make stars. 


This card uses black ink that is sprinkled with glitter and heat embossed. The whole card shimmers!  I stamped the moon and fairy ink white ink and then sprinkled them with glitter and heat embossed them. This card is so shimmery in real life! 

Oh my gosh! I love this set! It is so funky!  I stamped the images on the white heavy Gina K. card base.  Then I colored everything.  I didn't love it. So I stamped the flowers again - trimmed and colored them and popped them up on the base and I love it!




This card is so simple! I stamped the image on glossy paper and colored it with spectrum noir markers in pinks and reds.  It really looks like stained glass or a ruby heart in real life! 



I had such high expectations of this set - I love it but the photo does not do the colors justice.  The flowers and wreath are stamped in white ink, heat embossed with white and colored with spectrum noir markers which pops off the page. Sentiment stamped in mango and black.  I added some gems to the wreath!

This one is stamped on lemon base with lemon and white ink. I added some white embossing powder to make it pop, them stamped the flower and sentiment in lemon ink. I added some yellow gems to the center of the flowers. 






Finally, I combined Emmy & Riley with Lisa's You Are set. I added the soccer ball! So cute! Wouldn't this be amazing for a little soccer player - or a soccer coach?



I love your feedback!  Which card did you like/love/hate
