Gina K. Designs July Inspiration Blog Hop - Day 2


The Cast and Crew for Gina K Designs welcomes you to another fabulous blog hop celebrating the new stamp sets from the July StampTV Release Party! 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 two stamp sets by Beth Silaika and Claire Brennan.

The first set we are featuring is Bella Elephant by Beth Silaika. Beth has created a super cute set with the sweetest images and matching sentiments to make the perfect card project! Claire Brennan is releasing four amazingly beautiful stamp sets this release month! My Island is like a tropical get-away, Petite Patisserie is a sweet shop of goodness, So Cool is packed with yummy ice cream treats and Sweet Thing is a cupcake lovers dream! Beth and Claire have created some serious ‘cuteness overload’ in these sets!

Enjoy the gorgeous inspiration samples from the team and then comment on each blog for your chance to win a $20 Gina K Designs gift certificate! To see who won, check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hop.

For my first project I created a card perfect for welcoming a baby into the world!  I just love both of the sweet elephants in this set!

Copic Markers: W00, W0, W1, W2, W3, W4, W5, R20, Boooo
Extra Fine White Paint Pen (Sharpie)
Pierced Circle Die
Scallop Border Die

For my next card, I created a sunset background using distress inks.  I also created my own embossed card base using my scor-buddy.  I love the added texture it adds to a CAS card.  If you watched Gina's Release presentation she did something very similar....great minds think alike! ;)  

Embossing Heat Tool
Tim Holtz Distress Ink: Mustard Seed, Dried Marigold,

Up next is a fun gift card holder.  Who wouldn't love to receive a gc to the local ice cream shop?  A perfect Summertime thank you!  You can find the tutorial I used HERE.

Copic Markers: R29, R81, R85, BG10, BG11, BG15, E34, E35

Here's a super cute little notecard...perfect for catching up with a special friend.  You can easily change out the greeting and it can become a sweet birthday card.  Doesn't that ice cream cone look yummy?

 My final card features one of the yummy cupcakes in this set.  This set is full of yummy options and sentiments.  I will definitely be reaching for this one often.
