Gina K. Designs: Fun With Fabulous Foil-Mates Blog Hop

Hi everyone! Gina K and the team have received such amazing feedback on the new Foil-Mates, Fancy Foils and dies that we have decided to put together a special hop for you today! This blog hop is a blend of a video blog hop featuring tutorials from Gina K and a few members of the team and a traditional blog hop featuring beautiful cards from other members of the team. 

Over the past few weeks, the Foil-Mates products have been flying off the shelves at Gina K Designs. Please be assured that if they are out-of-stock, they will quickly be back on the shelves again soon. In fact, Gina just stocked the shelves with a fresh batch of Foil-Mates, Fancy Foils and dies and more will be on the way.

If you are new to Foil-Mates, they are used to step-up the shimmer and shine in your card projects! Creating cards is never more easy and beautiful when you work with this new line of foil products. From beautiful pre-printed Foil-Mates, to stunning colors of Fancy Foils, when you combine them together the outcome is stunning! Discover how many various combinations of different cards and invitations you are able to create with Gina’s Foil-Mates products. With many of Gina’s most popular signature colors now available in foil, coordinating with Gina K Designs card stock and ink has never been easier!

We would like to thank Therm O Web for being such a great partner in the Foil-Mates line of products.




Enjoy the gorgeous inspiration samples from the team and then comment on each blog. We will be selecting one lucky commenter at the end of the hop and that person will win a $50 Gina K Designs gift certificate! To see who won, check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hop. Ready for some inspiration? Here are a few of the projects I have created for today’s hop:

For my cards today I wanted to show you how you can incorporate the fun Foil-Mates products with your everyday card supplies.  For my first card I foiled the Futterby Die using the Deco-Foil Adhesive Pen and Wild Lilac Foil-Mates Fancy Foils to create my own foiled embellishment.  I also foiled the striped layer and sentiment.  

 GKD Supplies Used:

For my next card I created a Birthday themed card using the Birthday Essentials Foil-Mates.  For this card I only foiled the sentiment using Red Velvet Foil-Mates Fancy Foils and then added some fun layers using the Small & Large Rectangle Foil-Mates dies

The Curtain Call Challenge - Frosting Reminder

There's still time to join us for the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: Frosting!  
You have until May 25th at 8:00 AM CDT to be inspired and share your project!

The LEAD of this challenge will be invited to be a guest designer in an upcoming challenge!
I'm back with my second take...
I  was inspired by the soft colors and the swirls in the frosting!  To recreate the softness of the frosting I watercolored a single flower from the Mason Jar Bouquet stamp set by Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps.  I've been having a lot of fun playing around with my new set of Crayola Fine Line Markers.  I then created the background by embossing a line a 1/4" apart across the panel using my Scor-Buddy.  I loved how CAS this turned out.
