Gina K. Designs | MMC102018


I'm playing along with the October Monthly Mix Challenge over at StampTV.  Karen Hightower is this months hostess and she is challenging us with an "Anything Other Than a Card" theme.  You can find all the challenge details HERE.

For my project I decided to create a fun K-Cup holder to coordinate with a card I shared on National Coffee Day featuring the NEW Perfect Blend stamp set.  You can see the card and all the details HERE

I'm actually up-cycling a tiny favor box I received.  I filled it with a K-Cup and wrapped it with coordinating papers and ribbon.  I then created a tag to match the card I previously created.  I know any COFFEE LOVER would love to received this gift set. 

Here's a Closer look.
 
Happy Stamping!!

-----------------------

 My first card features the NEW Fruit of the Season stamp set from the Fruit of the Season StampTV Kit.  This kit is chalk full of stamps, dies, and card stock to get you crafting for the holidays!  I first created the background by stamping the new Music Medley background stamp with gold pigment ink that I heat set to prevent smearing.  I then stamped the poinsettia with GKD Red Velvet ink and the greenery with GKD Fresh Asparagus ink and cut them out with the coordinating dies that come in the kit. 
 

My next card features the NEW Sparkling Snowflakes set from the Fruit of the Season StampTV Kit.  For this one I wanted to make my snowflakes to sparkle so I created my own sparkly background paper.  I randomly stamped the snowflakes with GKD Turquoise Sea ink and then traced them using a Quickie Glue pen and then poured GKD Prismatic Glitter over them.  I worked in small sections so the glue wouldn't dry to quickly.  I then stamped a couple more snowflakes and cut them out with the coordinating dies before adding the glitter.  I added a tag from the GKD Nested Tag set and stamped a sentiment from the set.
 

 My final card features the NEW Perfect Blend incentive set.  This set is FREE with any $75 order!

Enjoy all the fabulous inspiration as you hop and make sure to comment as you go for a chance to WIN!

Gina K. Designs: September Release Blog Hop - Day 2


Welcome back to the second day of the Gina K. Designs September 2018 Release blog hop!  The release is NOW available and can be found HERE.

There is an AWESOME prize up for grabs!!  Just leave a comment on each stop of the hop for a chance to WIN a $50 Gina K. Designs gift certificate!  A total of THREE certificates will be awarded (one for each day of the hop).  The winners will be announced over in the StampTV Big News forum a few days after the hop has ended. 

Today we are featuring two brand new stamp sets.  The first set is illustrated my Theresa Momber and is called Rustic Autumn.  The second set is illustrated by Lisa Hetrick and is called Something Good.

-----------------------------

My first card features Theresa's NEW Rustic Autumn stamp set.  I randomly stamped the leaves with VersaMark ink and embossed them with GKD Fine Detail Gold embossing powder.  I then blended GKD Dark Chocolate, Honey Mustard & Sweet Corn inks with a jumbo sponge dauber to create the background.  The final touch was adding the "Thankful" die cut.  I stacked three of the die cuts to add a little dimension to the delicate die.

My next card features Lisa's NEW Something Good stamp set.  I'm having a lot of fun with this set.  I just can't get enough of that wood slice.  I always have problems making very CAS cards but this set makes it so easy.  I found using a Misti was very handy for when I needed to stamp some of the images more than once.  I also found that using layering weight card stock for the two flowers made it so easy to fussy cut them out.

Enjoy all the fabulous inspiration as you hop and make sure to comment as you go for a chance to WIN!

Gina K. Designs: September Release Blog Hop - Day 1


Welcome to the first day of the Gina K. Designs September 2018 Release blog hop!  The release is in the store and can be found HERE.

There is an AWESOME prize up for grabs!!  Just leave a comment on each stop of the hop for a chance to WIN a $50 Gina K. Designs gift certificate!  A total of THREE certificates will be awarded (one for each day of the hop).  The winners will be announced over in the StampTV Big News forum a few days after the hop has ended.

Today, we are featuring two brand new stamp sets.  The first set is illustrated by Melanie Muenchinger and is called Men of Faith.  This is a companion set to the previously released Women of Faith set.  The second set is illustrated by Rina Krupsky and is called the Mandala Maker.  This is Rina's first set and it's AMAZING!  Congratulations Rina!! 

http://shrsl.com/12c63  http://shrsl.com/12c63

-----------------------------------------

My first card features Melanie's NEW Men of Faith stamp set.  This set is full of possibilites and can be combined with so many sets in your collection.  For my sentiment I combined it with the "happy" from her Pressed Flowers set to create this fun masculine design.  The dies I used are from her Fabulous Label and Fabulous Rose Frame die sets.  I love using CAS designs for masculine cards and the new 2018 colors were the perfect punch for this card.
 

My next card features Rina's Mandala Maker stamp set.  This set is so fun and can be used by itself or with the Wreath Builder Template.  I went for a fun kaleidoscope look after being inspired from Jennifer McGuire video last week using this set.  You can find her video HERE.  I didn't have a T ruler but found that the "L" piece in the Misti Corners worked.  I used a combination of GKD Amalgam Black and Tranquil Teal to create a fun monochromatic design.  I did do a little coloring with a Turquoise Prisma color pencil.  I love the fun design and paired it with a sentiment from Melanie's new Men of Faith set.
