Gina K. Designs August Release Blog Hop: Day Two

Welcome to Day 2 of the Gina K. Designs August Release Blog Hop! WooHoo! Who is excited for more stamp sets? Today we are featuring Skeleton Leaves and Holiday Wreath Builder!



When I saw this stamp set, I squealed with delight! It reminded me of the stamp set that started my love of stamping!


Image may contain: text
 This card uses an A2 Kraft base and I stamped the skeleton leaves in black and then used some copic markers to color them.  The sentiment POPS off the black with embossed white! Sentiment is from Dazzling Dahlia




Finally, I created this card with an ombre look using the rock and roll method. Taking a photo of this card proved to be challenging. There are double score lines on the base of the card above and below the sentiment. The skeleton leaf and the sentiment are stamped in sandy beach and then rolled in dark chocolate. This gave it an ombre look. I promise it looks better in real life!






Finally, here is an amazing new set for the holidays! Love that it includes the Star of David and Happy Hanukkah sentiment!  Pssst. I don't have the wreath builder (I guess I need to order one) - so I just have to use the images to make it work! 

No automatic alt text available.

My card is a kraft A2 card with some white ink and a splash of red/black! Super clean and easy to replicate if you are producing in mass quantities for the holidays!



The $50 Gina K. Designs gift card is in play today too! So you do your thing by leaving some love on every blog on the list!

them really speaks to the season.
