** Busy day on my blog today!  For my Stamp Simply post, please scroll down! **

The Cast and Crew of Gina K Designs welcomes you to another fabulous Inspiration Blog Hop to celebrate the brand new Stamp TV Kit - Autumn Wishes! Gina and the Cast and Crew will inspire you with many fun projects!

 As you hop through the blogs of Gina and the Cast & Crew, make sure to leave a comment on each of them because we will choose a random commenter to win a grab bag of Gina K Designs products!  To see if you won, check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hops.

Today we're featuring stamps from the Friends Til the End set - 
just ONE of the sets in the newest Stamp TV Kit!!  



Let's do a happy card first, ok??  I stamped my bee in Charcoal Brown ink and colored it in with Spectrum Noir markers.  I embossed half of the main panel before stamping the little flight path in Honey Mustard ink.


My second card today is one of the little 4 1/4" square ones that I like so much. : )  I cut all my circles out with dies before stamping the images - that way I could curve my sentiment to (sort of) match my circle, and I could position my critters where I wanted them.  Nothing too out of the ordinary here - just cute and useful! : )

Well, that's it for today!  I'll give you the list of my fellow designers again, in case you're just getting started... otherwise, you can jump right over to the shop to pick up your kits and any other stamps and supplies you saw on today's hop.   And don't forget to visit me on Friday in the Stamp TV Addicts Group for another edition of Friday Funday!  See you then!!

{Stamp Simply} Grace


I have a card to share today that uses the pretty Grow in Grace set by Our Daily Bread and some Pickled Pear paper by Kaisercraft.  After layering some papers together for my background, I cut a square of ivory cardstock and stamped the flower image in Versamark ink, then embossed it with white embossing powder.  I used a sponge dauber to add ink to the panel and then I stamped the sentiment.  Isn't it a pretty contrast?  The sponging makes it just glow!  I added a little sheer ribbon and some baker's twine to the side before finishing the card off with a double bow.

{Gina K Designs Inspiration Blog Hop} Autumn Wishes

Today we're featuring stamps from the Autumn Wishes set - 
just ONE of the sets in the newest Stamp TV Kit!!  


My first card spreads a little sunshine, following Gina's video tutorial HERE.. I covered the corner of my cardstock with a circle while I sponged my rays to keep it clear.  The flowers were stamped in Versamark and clear embossed before I started sponging.


For my second card, I decided to use darker, earthy colors, so it would be suitable for the men in our lives.  I stamped the leaf around the edges of the cardstock in Dark Sage and Fresh Asparagus, then added a ribbon, a couple of banners and a matted sentiment.  I even added a little handwritten "to you" to personalize it a bit.  I like how clean and simple it looks, but interesting, too!

{Stamp Simply} Deepest Sympathy


Hello again!

I have a card to share today that combines some gorgeous fall leaves from the JustRite Small Cling - Oak Leaves set and a sentiment from the NEW Stamp Simply set - Deepest Sympathy.  It's another set with that GORGEOUS font.  LOVE!!

I stamped my leaves on Ranger Watercolor paper with archival black ink, then clear embossed them before watercoloring them with my Distress Markers.  The sentiment is also clear embossed.  I added a strip of dry embossing on the bottom of the card and separated it from the main image with some Bakers Twine and a seam binding ribbon bow.

Here's my Stamp Simply shopping list for today...

Thanks so much for dropping by!

{Stamp Simply} Birthday Wishes

Wasn't that a fun blog hop yesterday?  If you weren't able to stop and see all the gorgeous cards, be sure to do it today so you can get in the drawing!  Today I have another card to share - this time using the Birthday Wishes set.


I wanted to play along with the 200th sketch at Freshly Made Sketches, so I chose the JustRite Romantic Wild Roses set as the backdrop for my pretty sentiment.  Don't you just love the font??  After stamping my image and sentiment,  (following the Color Throwdown colors for the week!) I cut my cardstock as shown in the sketch, layered it on a piece of black cardstock and then stitched around it with my sewing machine.  I added some rhinestones and a 3D flower before attaching it to the card base.



After I lined the inside of the card with the largest of the Celebrations Pierced Rectangles, I cut a skewed strip of orange cardstock and stamped it with the Happy Birthday sentiment from the set.  I added a 3D flower and another greeting from the set to finish it off.
