Stamp it Big--Available now!

If you made it to the Gina K Designs Release party, you know what an incredible (and fast-paced!) night it was---
Gina introduced her new Color Companion line and all the stamp sets and new products were unveiled and are now available to purchase.  You can check them all out HERE in the store!

 This is my new set using some of the NEW INKS available at Gina K!
 Here is my new set, Stamp It Big:

And the coordinating Stamp It Big Silhouette Cut file that you can purchase if you own a Silhouette machine to enhance the set can be found HERE!

Finally, here are some tips on using the set (I am sure you will think of even more ways to use the combination of large words and fun elements together!)

Stamp It Big Tip Sheet
-This set features lots of larger sentiments and some smaller add-ons that form these sentiments and more:
Thanks so much
Thanks friend (this is made by making a cut in the Friends stamp. By slicing off the “s” you can use that stamp to make the word “Friend” or piece it together to spell “Friends”
Birthday Thanks
You make me Smile
Smile   I love you
Smile Friend
Holiday Wishes
Best Wishes
Birthday Wishes
Friends forever
Best Friends
I love you
love you
I love you so much
I love you Friend
I love you forever
I love you Best
You make me {heart}
{heart} forever
Birthday {heart}
-The sentiments will also go nicely with sentiments from other Gina K sets that you can mix and match fonts to get a fun look.
-Replace the ‘i’  in the larger sentiment with the heart , star or flower designs.
-Stamp the larger sentiment in multiple colors by inking each letter with a water-based marker, huffing on the stamp and then stamping on paper.
-Emboss the large sentiments in white on darker colors for a bold statement.
-Stamp a large sentiments in a row with bright colors for a fun/easy note card.
-Make mini flags by stamping the pattern blocks on card stock and then adhering them to a toothpick.
-Create fun grid designs using a variety of the patterns blocks and shapes.
-Stamp the scallop stamp repeatedly on the card in different colors, add sentiment along bottom of card.
-The cube patterns work well by themselves and joined together to form rows or entire backgrounds.
-Punch shapes and stamp the pattern on.  (For example, have a small heart punch?  Turn it into a checkerboard heart by stamping the design on the punched shape.)
-Use the patterns to stamp kiss the larger sentiments to add interesting textures to your words.
-Punch a shape (or use one from the Silhouette file) and stamp pattern over it to create a negative pattern on the card.
-Cut squares to stamp patterns on (or use one from the coordinating Silhouette file). Adhere squares to the card and pop up some of the patterned squares using foam tape.

Silhouette file + Stamp it Big Set
-There is a coordinating Silhouette file available through Gina K Designs that contain outlines for the larger words and for all the shapes.   Used together, there are endless possibilities for different combinations for the words and designs.  Don’t have a Silhouette?  Not a problem---the set works well on its own and/or with punches you may already own (See above!).
-The file also contains a large speech bubble and thought bubble that you can pair with the sentiments.
-The smaller shapes have cuts to be used as a mat that you stamp onto OR cut the shape that is the exact size as the stamp and stamp the pattern design on it.

Here are a few more cards that I shared using Stamp It Big during the release party on StampTV last night:
First, I stamped the larger heart in several colors repeatedly on this and then added the smaller heart stamped by the small sentiment:

Next, I used lots of the elements in the set to create this fun graphic card:

Finally, I made an easy thank you by repeating the large "Thanks" sentiment and adding the tiny flower design:
Be sure to check out all the other samples using this set from previous posts this week.  Also, join us for the design team blog hops Monday-Wednesday of next week to see all the new card stock, ribbon, inks, and stamps in action!

Thanks for stopping by!
