{Gina K Designs} The Simple Things Stamp TV Kit and Fabulous Frame Fillers



The Cast and Crew of Gina K Designs welcome 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 a few comments to win a wonderful Grab Bag of fabulous Gina K goodies.  To see the winner announcement, check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hops.


My first card today uses the gorgeous frame from the new The Simple Things Stamp TV kit.  This kit is filled with so many fun things, like the pretty Vintage Cut that I stamped my frame on, and the gorgeous ribbon.  The designer paper is from the Autumn Landscape paper pack that you get FREE with a $50 order.  I stamped in GKD Charcoal Brown ink, and added a few Dark Chocolate Buttons for some extra pizzazz.



My second card uses elements from Melanie's new Fabulous Frame Fillers, as well as from The Simple Things Stamp TV kit, and Melanie's original Fabulous Frame.  I stamped in Honey Mustard and In the Navy.

TIP:
I wanted some dry embossing in only the bottom section of the frame, so I laid my ivory cardstock on my large dot embossing folder and used a dry embossing stylus to add the embossing.  I had stamped my frame on layering weight ivory and colored with a matching Spectrum Noir marker, so I could see the section I wanted to stay in from the back of the cardstock.  I was hoping to use my swiss dot folder to do the top section the same way, but I couldn't find it on my desk.  LOL!  Maybe next time! : )

My final card is an extra...  It uses last month's FREE with $50 paper - Garden Tour and an older Duo stamp set called My Most Favorite.  The Garden Tour paper pack is now available for sale, so if you didn't get any last month you'll want to pick up a pack.  It is SO pretty!


Anyway, I wanted to make a fun card to send to my daughter in college, and this was a fun and EASY design.  And look!  I actually DID use a stamp from The Simple Things Stamp TV kit!  The brick wall makes a fabulous shadow behind all sorts of things, from sentiments to silhouettes, and it can go from whimsical to elegant easily, like on this card I showed at the release party.


Thanks SO much for stopping in to see me today!  Remember that all of the new products are available NOW at Gina K Designs!  Be sure to check out the rest of the Design Team for more inspiration with the new sets, and leave lots of love.  Here's the info and the list ...

Thanks for the great tip on a different way to emboss only part of a paper. You can really be selective on where or what you emboss by using the stylus.
