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:

 I  paired up my wise old owl with one of the papers from the Simple Things paper pack. I took my colour inspration from the paper and created a wee background for my owl using trees and bushes from the Cottage Garden set.


I love this guy with his mug of hot stuff, I made him the focal point and cut him out using the matching dies. I created a patterned BG paper by stamping all of the owls in black ink onto the
Blue lagoon cardstock.


The peony stamp is so pretty, I embossed it in gold and then just coloured it simply in pink and gold - I could see this for a wedding card also!


Here was a card you might have seen already, but in case not, I popped it in to show how the peony stamp is so detailed that you really don't even need to colour it if you need a quick card. Here it's embossed in copper.


That incentive set is going to be so useful - you'll be able to pair it up with so many of your existing Gina K sets, here I've matched it with a cupcake from my Sweet Thing stamp set.
Thanks for hopping with us folks - don't forget to comment to be in with a chance of winning a prize!

...Gina K Designs –Inspiration Blog Hop – Day 1




The Cast and Crew for Gina K Designs welcomes you to another fabulous blog hop celebrating the new stamp sets by Gina K! This month, we are celebrating the release of the Boho Flowers mini kit and three other stamp sets by Gina K Designs! These sets are Wise Old Owl, Peony Wishes and the new incentive set Grand Greetings. 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 the new Boho Flowers mini kit.
For this card I stamped the images in black ink and then clear embossed them. I used the flourishes to create a little frame for my sentiment, and then I stamped the flowers on a piece of separate card and die cut them with the dies from the kit. I popped them up on top. I love the flowers from this set, they really lend themselves to colouring and I used strong colours here to make them pop. I added the 'you' sentiment to the inside of my card, along with another flower to finish.
This set also works well with a more antique finish, that you might have seen in this card that I showed in my last post:


You will have so much fun creating so many varieties of cards using these images and sentiments. Everything that comes in the kit is shown here.

...You mean the world to me


Folks if you were at the Gina K new release party on Thursday night you might have seen this card already, I wasn't able to make the party but I think some kindly soul was able to share a couple of my cards. Gina has just released a beautiful new kit called Boho Flowers and this is a card I have made using the butterfly stamp from that kit.

I stamped the butterfly 8 times with Versamark onto white card and then added some clear embossing powder. After heating the powder to set it I coloured the detail on the butterflies with some muted shades using copics. After that I sponged some Kraft ink (Gina K Ink) over the butterflies to help define their outer edged. I simply trimmed the panel and mounted it on a black mat and then onto a kraft card base.

I die cut the word 'you' and mounted it over a little strip of white card onto which I had sponged the phrase 'mean the world to me'. I love how this came together and I'm super excited to see what else I can do with this kit. look out for our DT blog hop - think it's happening on Monday!
