Gina K 2018 New Colors Release

Hello! Have you heard the news? There are new ink colors and new cardstock/envelope colors at Gina K Designs! This is so exciting. I've been hoping for Sandy Beach ink for so long and it is finally here, along with a bunch of other fun colors.

There are full size ink pads and even ink cubes in all the new colors. 

You can also find coordinating cardstock and envelopes for each color. I love that! 

My two favorite colors (so far) from the new collection are Sandy Beach and Sea Glass. These colors make me so happy! I decided to make a card inspired by the names of these two inks. I also used Tranquil Teal and the new Amalgam Black inks, along with Pigment White. Video coming soon for this one.

Be sure to see what the rest of the team have created with the new inks and leave a comment as you hop along. There is a $25 gift certificate for one luck commenter that will be randomly chosen from all the comments left on our blogs.

Gina K March Preview Blog Hop

Hello! It's release time at Gina K and we are having blog hops this week to give you a preview of what is coming out on Thursday. Today we are featuring my newest stamp set, called Framescapes - Window of Wishes.  You'll be able to beautiful window scenes using the images in this set and you'll also be able to combine it with my past Framescapes sets (or any scene images) for an endless variety of compositions.

For my first card, I sponged a simple background, added a few branches and then placed a cut out flower pot of daffodils on the windowsill. Here is a video I made for this card.



 On this card I did another sponged background, then stamped the window directly onto it. I used a Copic marker to fill in the window image, creating a more masculine look.

For my third card, I created a really loose watercolor scene, adding in some pops of color in the foreground to look like fields of flowers. I hadn't used watercolors in a long time and this was so fun and fast to do!

I hope you can join the team Thursday at 7pm Central over at StampTV for our release party. And be sure to comment on all the blogs for a chance to win a $50 gift certificate to Gina K Designs. The winner will be announced at the release party on Thursday. Good luck!

Gina K Designs Stamp -n-Foil Blog Ho[


Hi there everyone! We have a really fun blog hop today to share ideas for the new Gina K and Thermo-Web line. I know you have all seen great projects featuring Gina K foiling by now, but this new release is extra special because it include coordinating stamps. Yay!

For my first card, I used the Butterfly Kisses stamp set and Foil Mates.  I also added in the leafy branch from Where Flowers Bloom.  These images are so beautiful and coordinate wonderfully together.

And here is a close up so you can see how spectacular the gorgeous foils are. I still can't believe we can create something so professional looking right at home!

On this card I used stamps and Foil Mates from the Time to Celebrate collections. I colored in the cake and candles with Copic markers and then used Foil Mates to add some sparkle to the sentiment and background.

Here is a close up for this card. I love how sparkly the confetti looks.

On my final card, I used the Where Flowers Bloom Foil Mates. I did a bit of Copic coloring to the images before foiling.

Here is a close up for this card, too.

I hope you have enjoyed the hop and found some inspiration. Make sure to stop by Gina's blog to see how you could win a fab prize. If you haven't hopped yet, be sure to visit all the blogs below for more inspiration!

Furry Friends Blog Hop

Hello! The Gina K Designs team is back with another fun blog hop. We are featuring the most adorable stamp sets, designed by Gina's daughter, Alicia Krupsky. The sets are called Frisky Felines and Playful Pups. Both sets also have coordinating dies, too!

On my first card, I combined images from both sets to create a simple scene with a cat and dog together.

Here I used the Frisky Felines set again. I stamped the cat directly on Kraft cardstock and then colored it with color pencils.

For more inspiration be sure to check out what the rest of the team has created. Just click on the links below. As you hop through each of the blogs, leave a comment. We will choose one lucky winner who will take home a $50 gift certificate to the Gina K. Designs online store.  Lisa Hetrick is up next!
