Sentimental Summer

Hi Everyone,
I am so excited to be able to share a blog hop with you featuring the new Sentimental Summer StampTV Kit! This kit is filled with stamps, dies, patterned paper and card stock that will help you create beautiful cards throughout the summer and beyond!

I have already share two videos with you featuring the Dazzling Dahlia stamp set from the kit. If you haven't had a chance to see these videos, here are photos of the cards with the StampTV Video link underneath each card.

First, I showed you the kit and how to use colored pencils and gamsol to color the flowers. (I will be showing you the watercolored version soon!)


Click here to watch this video:
Sentimental Summer- Colored Pencils and Gamsol


Then, I created these cards using the Dazzling Dahlia stamp set along with embossing powder. This technique is fun and different and surely worth a try! 


Click here to watch this video:
Sentimental Summer- Metallic Dahlias

I was out in New York visiting my daughter, and although I couldn't bring my whole stamp room, I managed to bring a few things to color. Here is a peek of some of the coloring I did for my next video coming later this week.


This is just one of those kits where I get so many ideas in my head, I can't decide what to make first! So I end up making two to three cards at a time. Haha! Are any of you like that? 

You can get your new Sentimental Summer StampTV kit by clicking HERE

(We are starting to run low and we have more supplies on order however, once they sell out, it will be about a three week wait until they are restocked. I just wanted to keep you updated in case you don't like to wait.)

So now it's time to hop! 

Enjoy the gorgeous inspiration samples from the team and then comment on each blog. We will be selecting one lucky commenter at the end of the hop and that person will win a $50 Gina K Designs gift certificate! To see who won, check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hop.

You can start hopping here:


Enjoy all of today's inspiration and thanks so much for joining us!

Another Fun with Foil Blog Hop!

Hi everyone,

We have received such amazing feedback on the new Foil-Mates line that we have decided to put together another special hop for you today! We are sharing a combination of videos and traditional blog posts and we hope you are inspired to FOIL ALL THE THINGS! :)

The Foil-Mates line contains everything you need to create beautiful cards that shine. Included in the line are beautiful foils by ThermOWeb™ in Gina K. Designs colors, pre-printed sentiments, invitations and backgrounds that bond with the foil when using a laminator, dies that work together to perfectly cut out your sentiments and invitations, and ink, card stock and ribbon that will pull it all together.

I'd like to personally thank ThermOWeb for giving me the opportunity to bring this line to you and for providing my team the beautiful tools to share projects and keep you inspired. 

As you hop through the blogs, make sure you leave a comment because one lucky person will be chosen from all the comments and will take home a $50 Gina K. Designs  Gift Certificate! Look for the winner in the BIG NEWS forum at StampTV.com a few days from now. 

In my post, I wanted to share several of my past videos featuring the different components of this line and how they work. Since these videos are all here in this blog post, you can book mark it and easily find the video you want by stopping by here.

To learn the basics of foiling with the Foil-Mates line, watch this video. This videos how you how to foil and how to use the negative pieces of foil to create additional projects.



To learn fun ways to use the dies from the Foil-Mates line and to see fun inking techniques, watch this video.
