Gina K. Designs: Hot Summer Release Blog Hop Part One - Day 1



Welcome to the first day of the Gina K. Designs Hot Summer 2018 Release Part One blog hop!  The release is now available over at Gina K. Designs and can be found HERE.

My first card features the new This Girl Is set, illustrated by Melanie Muenchinger.  This set is a perfect companion to her Women of Faith set.  I wanted to keep the focus on the Girl so I kept the card design clean and simple.  I colored the girl with copic markers and then fussy cut her out.  I attached her with foam squares and stamped a few butterflies for a little added touch.



My next card features the new Unicorn Wishes, illustrated by Beth Silaika.  This set is too cute for words...I fell in love with it immediately!  This set is filled with lots of stamps and I created my own background panel by randomly stamping the little rainbow, cloud, and star.  I used copic markers to color all the images and of course had to add a little sparkle to the unicorn.


The products I used to create both cards are listed below.  Click on the link to go directly to the product.  Where available I use compensated affiliate links which means if you make a purchase I will receive a small commission at no extra cost to you.  Thank you so much for your support!
 

Enjoy all the fabulous inspiration as you hop and make sure to comment on each blog for a chance to win a $50.00 Gina K. Designs gift certificate!  Make sure to join us both days as there will be a total of two gift certificates up for grabs!  To see who won, check the Big News Forum over at StampTV a few days after the hop wraps up.
