Some Good Stuffs…!!

Happy Monday to you all!  I have some Gina K release posts today and tomorrow and then I will be back with some travel stories and picture for you later in the week ok!  Have a goodie!




The Design Team for Gina K. Designs welcomes you to another fabulous Inspiration Blog Hop!!! Gina and the Design Team will inspire you with many beautiful ideas! And as you hop through their blogs, make sure to leave a comment on each of them because we will choose a few random comments and those stampers will each win a grab bag of deeply etched, pre-cut Gina K. Designs stamps! To see the full list of winners check the Big News forum at Stamp TV a couple of days after the hops!!


 **Gina K Stamps now come in rubber or CLEAR so you can choose either when buying!**

This first card uses the fin-tastic (yep couldn’t help meself) set “Under the Sea” illustrated by Theresa Momber.  If you love fish and/or sea life then this is a MUST-HAVE set that works for all occasions and for gals & guys!  I like that this card can be used for just about anyone.  The blue wave paper is from the Gina K paper pack “Pool Side" and then I embossed the yellow cs with a CB D'Vine Swirls emboss folder.  The frilly scrolls reminded me of waves a bit and they were done with a Memory Box die and then stickled up for sparkle.  A few Bella Baubles in blue finish it off.




I love Angel Fish…we used to have an aquarium that was my husbands…but I got SICK of having to clean it cuz’ no one else did so we got rid of it.  Hubby wants another but I say NOOOO cuz I end up taking care of this stuff…ugh and me no likey cleaning tanks LOL.  But I like to LOOK at pretty fish Smile  I colored this angel fish (reminds me of Dorie in "Finding Nemo" talking whale heehee) in blues and yellow Copics after looking them up on Google LOL…but they come in other colors too.  The seaweed was colored with Copics as well and then I added a coat of Crystal Lacquer to make the fish shiny and some Stickles around the water for more shimmer.



The second card uses the new set “Enjoy the Journey” illustrated by Rupa Shevde which has some awesome images and sentiments in fun fonts!  I used scrap papers for this card…man I love that since my scrap box is overflowing LOL!  I like the pop of hot pink with the vintage krafty brown colors.  The tag & envie is by 7Gypsies and I stamped the image on it then added shading, the sentiment and paper piecings.  The swirls are a Magnolia Doohickey die.  Bow easy on the bow and a pearl to top it all off.


I used the luggage image but paper-pieced them and then shaded the paper with Copics a bit.  Then I added some Crystal Lacquer to the handles of the luggage as well.

Ok hope you liked these projects today and now you need to continue hopping for more inspiration from the fab ladies below!!
