Gina K Designs Blog Hop Day Two

Welcome to day two of the Blog Hop! Today we are celebrating the awesome new Holiday Wreath Builder and the elegant Skeleton Leaves Incentive Stamp Set.

This card gives me serious autumn and winter vibes. I love the color honey mustard so much, I want to use it as one of my wedding colors. All these colors are so warm.

For this card, I stamped all the snowflakes in ink colors from dark to light, making it look somewhat ombré. That was the original intention, but then I accidentally switched the caps on the ink cubes and stamped the smallest snowflake on the outside in powder blue instead of sea glass. I told you guys my brain takes frequent naps. There is SO much sparkle on this card. I used a Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen on each of the snowflakes. I was so sad when I took the picture and tried every angle with my camera in hopes it could somehow capture them. But alas, you will just have to imagine it.

These next cards are featuring the Skeleton Leaves Stamp Set. For my first card, I did a design quite similar to the card on my blog yesterday. I heat embossed the leaves with white embossing powder, and used Distress Oxide Ink to create a colorful background. I added a greeting and it was done!

For my last card, I used the ink blending technique to create a multicolored leaf design. I think it makes them look so realistic and lifelike. I did the same ink blending technique for the greeting.

By the way, I got quite a few comments asking about what kind of flowers are in my “Whimsical Wildflowers” stamp set. Well, there are Dogwoods, Peonies, Sunflowers, and a bud for any kind of flower. The bud could be for any floral, but I made it to reflect a Peony bud. Hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions and I’d love to answer them for you.

I absolutely love flowers. I hope to one day open my own flower shop. Daisies are my favorite flower. What’s your favorite? My boyfriend once bought me a whole DAISY TREE and I was so unbelievably happy. Can you imagine a whole tree full with daisies?? Well you don’t have to imagine because I’m including a picture of it. Look at how beautiful this is!! #mostperfectboyfriendever

He also bought me these sunflowers after I first showed him my flower drawings, way before they were made into a stamp set. ❤️

Fun fact: I wrote this post at 2 o’clock this morning. I just got done studying and watching a couple long lectures so I decided it was time to go to bed. I jumped in my bed all cozy and went to set my alarm when I realized the Blog Hop was at 8 this morning! I hadn’t even written the post yet. I got back up and wrote it as fast as I could. So I apologize for any spelling or grammatical errors. I blame them entirely on my lack of sleep, not on my normal lack of grammatical expertise. My college is rewarding work though because I am doing the work I love and am able to interact with people I love. (For those of you who don’t know, I’m going to college for Sign Language Interpreting.)

Go take a look at the amazing projects done by other members of the Gina K. team! Don’t forget to comment on each blog so you are in the running to win a $50 gift certificate for the Gina’s online store.

Thank you for stopping by again! So happy to have the opportunity to create for y’all. I’m going to be drawing lots more things for you, so stay tuned for more!

Love y’all!

    Very pretty!

    First of all let me say the flowers are beautiful. Your boyfriend is a keeper. Forty one years married this Sunday and I only received flowers twice. How sad is that?
    Your first card definitely says fall. I love the colors. My other favorite is the last leaf card. I love the color variations.

    Both of your cards done with the skeletal leave stamps are beautiful. The white embossed skeletal leaves are eye-catching and give a ghost like effect against the background. My favorite however, is the one done with color blending. This technique with the skeletal leaves stamps creates such colorful and realistic “Fall” leaves. A truly strikingly gorgeous card.


  5. Debra Anderson August 31, 2018 / 9:38 pm

    The ink blending looks fabulous on the leaves and I am loving the new Wildflower set.

    Gorgeous cards! They make me want to run to my craftroom to have a play…
    When I was a student, I used to buy Freesias all the time. Love the way they look and smell. Besides, they were cheap (in the Netherlands) and they lasted a long time. I had hot pink freesias in my bridal bouquet.


  32. Jennifer September 1, 2018 / 9:21 pm
