Gina K Preview Day 1

Hello! Welcome to day 1 of the Gina K Designs previews!!! Today the design team is sharing projects created with Lovely Shelf and Tech Talk!

For my first card, I used Lovely Shelf and created a birthday card for my baby sister (who is celebrating her birthday today! Happy Birthday Clare!):

I stamped the greeting right onto the card base and then added the border around the flower vase using a ruler and a black artist pen. I left the word "sister" right next to the flower (it is how it comes when you get the stamp sheet) because I knew I wanted to make a birthday greeting and thought it would be a great placement of that part of the sentiment.

After coloring the flower vase with Copics, I added some stickles to the center of the flowers. The bottom part of this card features the two new pure luxury colors that will be added to the store on Thursday--Ocean Mist and Crème de Menthe. Beautiful!!! Love these colors!

Materials used: Stamps-Lovely Shelf; Memento tuxedo black ink; Copic Markers; cardstock-white, Ocean mist, Crème de Menthe (Gina K Designs); ribbon-Offray; stickles- Tiara (Ranger); slit punch (SU!); black artist pen.

Next, here is my card using Tech Talk:
This set has lots of images to create the perfect desk but I wanted to focus more on the love I paired the cute envelope with the laptop and fun greeting. Since the computer is the primary way my husband and I communicate...I thought this would be perfect.

Materials used: Stamps-Tech Talk (Gina K Designs); Memento tuxedo black ink; Copic markers; cardstock-white-Gina K Designs); designer paper-Everyday, Long Time No See (American Crafts) ; adhesive stickers (Recollections); ribbon (SU!); corner rounder punch; sewing machine.

For even more ways to use these fabulous stamp sets, please check tonight's featured Illustrator's blogs:

Quick Ornament Card

Hi everyone! Happy I am posting when I said I wouldn't be!! (Famous last words!)

Actually, I wasn't supposed to post tonight but found out that I was signed up for the Gina K hop tonight just a few hours ago!

No worries---we are hopping around showcasing Tami's brilliant sets- Calendar grid and Calendar Bits & Pieces. My mind is swimming with ideas for these sets so I just whipped out one of those ideas and came up with this: (Yes, that is an ornament....just in case anyone asks!) I used the grid design for a background again. This time I embossed it in silver to go with the elegant ornament.

I used the small snowflake in the Bits & Pieces set to decorate my hand cut ornament. The snowflakes are embossed in silver and I added some silver stickles to the centers (for more sparkle.) The "December" is from the set as well and I just added some Cuttlebug die cut numbers below it to complete the date.

I used the Bow Easy to tie the bow---with some fun wired silver ribbon.

All cardstock is from Gina K Designs.

For more inspiration, please visit Calendar Bits and Pieces' illustrator, Tami Mayberry. Then, hop around to the following Gina K design team blogs:

Simple Sunday...on a Saturday!

EDIT: Apparently I am tired. I was scheduling this for tomorrow and I obviously am clueless about the date. Woopsie:) Happy Saturday (almost Sunday!)

Happy Sunday ( in 4 days till turkey day........akkkk!)
My daughter and I went to see New Moon yesterday....and we loved it. Definitely can see why so many "switched teams" with this movie. As for me---I remain on Team Edward (but it is JUST because of the books!)

I created this awhile ago and never posted it.....

The balloon is from Eclectic Summer and the sentiment is from A Year of Leaves (both Gina K Designs). I thought it would be cute to create a "Missing you" card with this image so I, of course, had to trail a few punched hearts....easy and cute.

Blog Awards: I KNOW I am bad about mentioning these but I am trying to improve (smile!) Thanks so much to Rhonda and Christi who gave me this award. (Because I already did this a few posts below, I didn't fill out the survey again!) Just wanted to say thanks!!! Rhonda also gave me this award:

Thanks so much! Now I am passing them along to all of you! Have a GREAT day!

Friday Flurries

Happy Friday......Is it just me-or are the weeks flying by?

I have to get my act together! I doubt I will be blogging much next week as I am hosting thanksgiving dinner for the first time ever. My husband's family is coming so I have to get the house ready AND learn how to cook in just a few days! Wish me luck!

I created this card last night with the new MFT set Pure Innocence-Flurries of Love: I love this new line. The images are so sweet.

Everything on this is pretty self explanatory. The snow is liquid applique. The image is colored with Copic markers.

Materials used: Stamps-Pure Innocence-Flurries of Love (My Favorite Things); cardstock-ivory, white (Gina K Designs); designer paper-the Mod Retro Stack (DCWV); Copic markers; liquid applique, heat tool; ribbon (SU!); sparkle burst brad (Karen Foster Designs).

Hope you have a great weekend....I am going to see New Moon tomorrow with my daughter! Cannot wait!

Vintage Tag

Hi there! I am battling a cold so this is gonna be short and sweet~sorry!
Tonight the Gina K Design team is showing you some more designs with Nina's Vintage Borders set.

I decided to create a tag using many of the stamps in the set--the ornate flourish, the music background, the sentiment and the intricate lace design.

I paired these elements with the snowflakes from the Stamp TV set-Holiday Cheer , the bird from First Christmas and the greenery from Tropical Flowers.

The stamps in Vintage Borders are the perfect backdrop for all of your stamped images.

Now how about some more inspiration with the Vintage Borders stamp set? First, check in with the Illustrator of this versatile stamp set, Nina Bracket, and her friend Lisa Hjulberg , who is joining in the blog hop tonight.

FLAT is in!

I have been trying to create some designs that would be very simple to mail and require no additional postage.

Today, I made this card, which features Polar Love by My Favorite Things.The only touch of texture on this is the fringe ribbon....but it is very thin and does not bulk up a card for mailing. (I am thinking about this a lot these days as I am currently sending a TON of mail out!)

This set is so sweet--I just LOVE the bears holding onto the heart. I colored the scarf and then added the extra lines to make it striped. I added a bit of crystal stickles to it to give it a bit of sparkle. I stamped the sentiment and then cut it up to add along the designer paper.

Materials used: Polar Love (My Favorite Things); Memento black ink; Copic markers; stickles-crystal (Ranger); cardstock-white, ivory (Gina K Designs); designer paper-Cosmo Cricket, The Paper Studio; corner rounder punch; fringe ribbon (Hobby Lobby).

Thanks for stopping by today!

Baby Bear

Whew! What a weekend......great weather and we were running all around....

We got the neatest package from my husband....he sent my daughter a children's book. In the back of the book is a DVD of him reading the book to her so that she could read the book along with him. It was the greatest thing and she LOVES it. This is a service of the USO and it is just an amazing gift. The other two kids cannot wait to get theirs.

Ok......I finally finished this card that I alluded to on Friday. This card was completed 10 minutes at a time (literally!)
The idea for this card popped into my head when I was working on the card in the post below. This design works for a new baby--boy OR girl!

I thought this sweet bear from First Christmas (Gina K Designs by Asela Hopkins) would look so cute sitting in the moon with some sparkly stars all around:

See....the Santa hat looks like a cute little baby hat when you use it in this way. This stamp will get a lot of mileage from me that is for sure!

I paired it with a sentiment from Tag Lines! (Gina K Designs).

More details: The little adhesive stitching is from Cloud 9, something I have had in my stash for awhile and have never used. I covered the sticky stars (I got from Jody Morrow HERE) with doodlebug glitter so the stars really sparkle. I created the moon by cutting a circle with a Nestability die (Spellbinders) and then cutting it into a crescent. I just added some sponging around the edges.

Materials used: Stamps-First Christmas, Tag Lines (Gina K Designs); cardstock-white (Gina K Designs); blue (SU!); designer paper- Lime Green Linen (The Paper Studio); Memento black ink; ink- barely banana, bashful blue (SU!); sponge; Copic markers; redline star shapes; doodlebug glitter-yellow; 3D Gel stickers, Travel (Cloud9 Design); brads (SU!).

Hope you all had a great weekend! I did!

It's a GIRL!

Hello! I am so excited because my baby sister is having her second daughter today!!! She was scheduled for a c-section this afternoon so by the time you are reading this--I will be an aunt (again!) EDIT: Sweet baby Carolyn (!) was born today. She weighed in at 8 lbs and 12 oz! So excited to meet her. Congrats Clare and Dave!

My daughter Lauren and I spent the morning shopping for her new cousin!!!
Since I knew the blog hop for Asela's First Christmas set was tonight---I decided to get the new baby card ready to go! (It is only fitting that I used a bear on my sister's card because we used to call her "Clare Bear" growing up!)

As you can see--I used the bear in the set to make a new baby card. You can even mask off the hat but I think it looks so cute with the hat on so I just made it pink. (You can color it blue for a baby boy!)

I used pure luxury cardstock for the image and framed the designer paper with some tan leather and All Spruced up.

Materials used: First Christmas (Gina K Designs); Memento black ink; Copic markers; rubon-American Crafts (IM phrases); cardstock-pure luxury white, all spruced up, tan leather (Gina K Designs); designer paper-SEI; slit punch (SU!); corner punch (SU!); pom pom ribbon (Jo Anns); sewing machine.

I am working on another sample with this set but didn't have the time to get it done. sometimes gets in the way! Will post in the near future!

Wanna see more designs with this beautiful set? Stop in at Asela Hopkin's blog (our featured Illustrator tonight) and see what she has prepared for us.

Then, check out the design team blogs:

and the CenterStage Spotlight Designer's blogs:

Thanks Veterans and Calendar HOP!

First and foremost----Happy Veteran's Day! Thank you to all those who have served or who are currently serving our country. Hugs to my hubby, who is in an "undisclosed location in Asia." (his words verbatim).
<<-----Hubby in action. If this photo doesn't make you feel secure......then I don't know WHAT will! (giggle!)

Gina K Designs is releasing two new sets by Tami Mayberry tonight---Calendar Bits & Pieces and Calendar Grid. The grid is just that---a grid that you can add the calendar dates to---or use for fun invitations or save the date cards. Calendar Bits & Pieces includes TONS of stamps to fill in your calendar or create scrapbook pages, cards, etc.

I created two projects today to try to show you the versatility of these sets. I am sure you will see LOTS of ways to use them on the hop tonight.

First, I used the Calendar Grid to create the fun background of this card. I used the words from the Bits & Pieces set to create a sewn on sentiment:

Materials used: Calendar Grid and Calendar Bits & Pieces (Gina K Designs); bashful blue ink (SU!); white cardstock, tan leather cardstock (Gina K Designs); designer paper-Early Bird-Cosmo Cricket; flower stickers (Martha Stewart); buttons (Making Memories); ribbon-Funky Vintage Trims, Lizzie (Making Memories); sewing machine; slit punch (SU!).

Next, I created a desk calendar using the Grid in a traditional way:I found a stand up photo album at Dollar Tree and thought it would be perfect to alter for a desk calendar. All the little stamps and the words and numbers are in the Bits & Pieces set. Wouldn't it be cute to create holiday desk calendars for grandparents with photos of the kids on the backs of the pages? There are endless possibilities with these sets---Check out these links for more:

For some helpful tips on how to use the Calendar Bits & Pieces and Calendar Grid stamp sets, please be sure to check out Gina's blog and StampTV for a helpful video on just how quick and easy it can be to use! Both of these sets as well as the PDF version of the Calendar Grid image will be available for purchase tonight over on our online store.

After that, stop by our Illustrator's blog - Tami Mayberry for some projects with her stamp sets.
Here are the Gina K Designers who are joining us in the preview tonight:

Christmas Peace, Hope, Love

Hi everyone! Hope you are having a good week so far. Tonight Melanie is hosting a blog hop with her newest release from Gina K Designs called Festive Frame.
I love how you can use this set simply by embossing the beautiful flower frame or dress it up by stamping it and coloring it.
I chose to color it in for this card. I stamped the frame on pure luxury white cardstock, colored it with Copics, and then cut it out...omitting the double lines on the inside of the circle and on the outer edge of the frame:
I stamped one of the beautiful sentiments in the center of the opening in two colors of ink. After mounting the panel to the front of the card, I stamped the bird from First Christmas and added it to the card as well.
I used some All Spruced Up ribbon and the Bow Easy to create the bow. Finally, I added some gold dots to the corners.

Melanie Muenchinger, the Illustrator of Festive Frame has invited a couple of her friends to join in on the blog hop tonight, so click on their blog links to see the projects they've created for us:

Slap on the Wrist

I woke up this morning to an email from my husband (who is currently in Kuwait). It said:
"Your blog....please refrain from placing pictures of my boy in frilly gold ruffles" (See post directly below this one!)
Oopsie....forgot he could access my blog from half way across the world!!! Hmmmmm.....might have to have some fun with this! (grin!)

I apologize that I did not address the events that took place at Ft. Hood on Thursday on my blog. I had a post all typed and ready for Friday and did not go back to change it. I didn't realize so many knew that was our home base. Thanks for your concern.....We live off post and my husband is currently serving in Iraq so he is safe. (Go figure....safer there than at home!)
All of our friends on post are safe. Please keep all those families who have been directly affected in your prayers.


Did you see the new Pure Innocence line from My Favorite Things? cuteness. I just love them all. I used My Balloon for this card and coupled it with a fun ribbon sun. I think the sentiment is just so sweet. Materials used: Stamps-My Balloon (Pure Innocence Line. My Favorite Things); Memento black ink; Copic markers; cardstock-white (Gina K Designs); designer paper-Mod Retro stack (DCWV); ribbons-scraps (SU, May Arts, Offray), orange grosgrain ribbon-May Arts.

JustRite Photo Ornament

Look what is new from JustRite Stampers. The November release from JustRite is fabulous and Stamper's Dream Store will be shipping the new stamps by mid-November.

Here is a peek at something I made with the 2" Square Decorative Frames:Do you see the beautiful square frame bordering the picture of my handsome son? That is from the new Decorative Square frames set. I embossed the frame and then matted the cropped picture of my son on some gold cardstock.

I used Brayton Font and the Harmony Rectangular Stamper to emboss the year and punched it with an oval punch. The base of the ornament is the Fleur de Lis Pendant die (Spellbinders). I added a bow made with Antique Sheer Gold ribbon (May Arts) to the top and threaded a piece of gold metallic string (May Arts)through the top of the ornament so you can hang it on a tree. This would also be beautiful on a card front or as a gift tag.

I am in love with the square stamps. They are so elegant---and look fabulous embossed! You can use these squares to frame a monogram note...a small sentiment...or even a picture (like I did for this ornament). You can even use your small letters to customize the border.

Here is what's new from JustRite at Stamper's Dream----Shipping mid-November:

and new Decorative 2" Round Borders too:

****Note: You can buy the borders and mounts separately....but these are also available in kits which include the border set, a mount and three sizes of fonts so you can customize your project. This is a great way to buy them if you are just starting out with will have everything you need to get started....
Michelle is always adding new stamps, embellishments and paper to her store, so be sure to check out Stamper's Dream today!

CSS Sketch Hop

Welcome to our first Center Stage Spotlight Design Team Blog Hop!

Jessica Fick, the Design Team Coordinator for GinaK Designs, has issued a challenge to all of the past and present team CSS team members to make a Christmas card with one of these sketches:

Here is what I came up with:

For my first card, I used an older Gina K set--Warm and Cozy Christmas. I simply stamped the image and cut out the boy (there is a tree behind him in the stamp). I used the "joy" sentiment in Warm Winter Wishes to stamp right next to him in the circle.

I added some red crystals in some of the snowflakes and added some icicle stitckles below his feet so this card sparkles a lot.

Materials used: Stamps-Warm and Cozy Christmas, Warm Winter Wishes (sentiment) (Gina K Designs); Memento black ink; cardstock-Ivory , white pure luxury (Gina K Designs); Copic markers; icicle stickles (Ranger); designer paper-Mini deck-Jolly by Golly (Cosmo Cricket); crystal rhinestones; pom pom ribbon (JoAnns); Spellbinders scalloped circle die; Cuttlebug (Provocraft); ribbon-May Arts; corner rounder punch (Creative Memories).

For this card I used two newer sets--Holiday Hospitality and Vintage Borders (sentiment). I used some of the beautiful new cardstock--tan leather and silver lining!

This was an easy card to make and I love how quick (and beautiful) cards are that are made with this ornament stamp. I finished this off with a big bow, made with my Bow Easy!

Materials used: Holiday Hospitality, Vintage Borders (Gina K Designs); Memento black ink; cardstock-tan leather, silver lining (Gina K Designs); silver cording- (Gina K Designs); Designer paper- Everafter: Something Blue (Cosmo Cricket); ribbon - May Arts; adhesive silver dots (Mark Richards); Scor-Pal; Bow Easy.

Spread the Love for Jaimie

Hello! Welcome to the "Spread the Love for Jaimie" Blog hop. The first stop on the hop is Katharina Frei, so if you didn't start there, you might want to go back and hop through.

The point of this blog hop is to reach out to a very special young girl, Jaimie (11), who recently lost her mom in a chilling burglary. You can read all about the story HERE.

Here is a summary....
"On October 4th, 4 teenagers armed with knives broke into a home in a small town in New Hampshire. Alone and sleeping inside were a mother and her 11 year old daughter. These 4 boys broke into this home with the intent to rob and kill anyone inside. They stabbed the mom, Kimberly Cates, to death and left her daughter, Jaimie, for dead in their driveway. It was a completely random act, their home was chosen only due to its secluded surroundings."

Our hope is that everyone hopping around today will stop for a moment and think about Jaimie and her father and what life must be like for them now. One moment in time has changed their lives forever. We are asking that everyone reading this message please take a moment to make a card and send it off to Jaimie. You can make something very simple or much more involved, but please share some words of hope and love and let her know that people do care and want the best for her.

Please send your card to the address below:
Jaimie Cates
c/o Mont Vernon Fire Station
Main Street
Mont Vernon, NH 03057

Please visit "Stamp Something...for Jaimie: Spreading Love and Hope" site to read more about Jaimie and join the special Card Drive Challenge. There are many generous sponsors who have kindly offered up some prizes to anyone who makes a card, posts it on their blogs, and lets us know they mailed it out.

Here is the card I created for Jaimie:

All stamps are from Gina K Designs.)
I hope you will consider participating in this challenge.

The next stop on the hop is Avril! Head on over to see the wonderful creation she designed for Jaimie!

Thanks for stopping by.
