{Gina K Designs} Here Comes the Sun Stamp TV Kit Blog Hop



The Cast and Crew of Gina K Designs welcomes you to another fabulous Inspiration Blog Hop! Gina and the Cast and Crew will inspire you with many beautiful ideas! As you hop through the blogs, make sure to leave a comment on each of them because we will be choosing ONE winner and the prize is a Grab Bag of fabulous Vintage Cuts and Shapes that match the Here Comes The Sun STV Kit, as well as some other embellishments and goodies to match the kit!  To see the winner announcement, check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hops.

I'm SO excited to be participating in my first hop as a designer for Gina K Designs.  What an honor!  And what could make it more exciting still?  I get to show you cards made with the newest Stamp TV kit!  WooHoo!!  It's fantastic!  Have you ordered yours yet???? 

Let's start with a couple of cards with the Ship to Shore set...


My first card is clean and simple - featuring the pretty red designer paper included in the kit, some stamping and a fussy cut heart.  The finished card size is 4.25" square.  


This next card is my FAVORITE.  I started by sponging Turquoise Sea, Grass Green and Sweet Corn ink on a piece of Gina K Designs Pure Luxury Heavyweight White Cardstock.  Then I stamped some of the images from the set onto the background using some GKD Black Onyx ink.  I stamped the birds twice in a row to get the varying colors.  I stamped the compass an extra time or two in GKD Grass Green ink just to add some dimension.  After my background was all prepared I attached a matted sentiment tag and stitched the completed focal panel to a white mat.   The stitched mat is popped up using foam tape over a Turquoise sea mat which is layered on the Grass Green card base.  Honestly, that took my longer to type out than it did to make!! : )

Now a couple of cards with the Flower Builders set!


In the kit you'll find this pretty piece of white designer paper covered with vines.  I decided to use that as my base and add some stamped flowers and dots to dress it up!  I used Passionate Pink and Sweet corn inks and stamped the pretty little bold flower and dots on my paper, then cut it to size and matted it on Black Onyx cardstock.  After adding my sentiment I also added a piece of white cardstock that I had embossed with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder.  It added some texture and gave me the perfect place for a few of the brads that are included in the kit!


My last card uses the pretty bold flower and leaf sprig from the kit, as well as lots of embossing.  I love the texture of the embossing directly over the stamped leaves on the white panel, and there are polka dots everywhere... Polka dots make everything better! : )  The other set of leaves was stamped in Grass Green ink onto Grass Green Cardstock and then cut out by hand.  I attached the sprig under my two-layered, popped-up flower to add some more dimension to my card.

Thanks SO much for stopping in to see me today!  Be sure to check out the rest of the Design Team for more inspiration from the kit, and leave lots of love.  I've seen some of the cards and they are wonderful, plus there is a fantastic prize up for grabs!  Here's the info and the list ...
