I do, I do, I do!!

Hi all & Happy Tuesday!  I have two days of Gina K release projects for you…I will be back later in the week with pictures from the concert (cuz I know you are dying to see my Luke Bryan..yes, yes I know LOL).  I’ll have some other goodies for you too, so make sure to check back later in the week Smile




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!!

Today we are using two of the new stamp sets“I Do” and “Tropical Nature”



For this card I decided to go neutral and monochromatic and create an elegant wedding card using the new set illustrated by Becky Oehlers called “I Do”!  Lee Murphy has a fun StampTV challenge going on HERE and its for monochromatic projects so go check it out for a fun chance to win too!  I kept my colors to cream, dark cream and white….the patterned paper is from Basic Grey’s “Cappella” paper pad.  And I basically did lots of layers…key to these one tone cards is the texture and layering that gives ‘em interest to make people want to look again.  I embellished with two bands of ribbon, some pearls and Stickles for sparkle.


I stamped two of the images (tux and dress) onto dark cream cardstock with cream ink and then I cut them out.  I added Stickles to the dress and the tie, Crystal Lacquer to his shoes and then I used my white Sharpie Poster Paint Pen to add buttons and pearl necklace.  Behind those images I stamped the wedding rings twice to they were interlocked with cream ink onto light cream cardstock.  Both of the mats were done with Spellbinders dies Labels 13 & 16 (the dark cream mat got embossed with a CB emboss folder, the other cream mat got Stickles around the border).  Just a fun way to play with a few of the images in neutral tones but they each have something to make them special.


The 2nd card was inspired by 50’s vintage travel postcards and my love for Hawaii using “Tropical Nature” illustrated by Theresa Momber.  I have a collection of vintage travel posters and postcards that I keep down in our rec-room, they are so much fun and have beautiful, faded colors!  I used a Marianne Designs die for the leaf foliage cut from green cardstock and then inked with brown ink to distress it a bit.  The pattern papers were from my scrap pile and I distressed the edges of those as well. I stamped the sentiment in white ink directly on my green cardstock (fresh asparagus) and then distressed the edges a bit too for a worn look.


I stamped the main waterfall image onto Kraft cardstock and then colored with Shinhan Touch Twin markers just a bit…when you color on kraft with markers you have to use more vibrant colors or they just fade away into the cardstock.  Then I added stickles to the waterfall and water for sparkle and to accent I used Liquid Applique to create foamy-bubbles that pop up where the waterfall hits.  The waterfalls in Maui are stunning…we hiked to 6 of them and it was something I will always treasure so to me this represents those falls and takes me back (mmmm I wish LOL)!  To distress around the image I used a few of the leaf images lightly in green ink and a distressed-vintage postage stamp in brown ink on the edges.

Alright that’s it for me today…hope you enjoyed the projects and now hop along to the fabulous designers below and leave comments for a chance to WIN!!
