{Gina K Designs} Stamp Out Cancer Blog Hop

Welcome to a very special Gina K Designs Blog Hop! 

Hi Everyone and welcome to my stop on the Hop!  We are so happy to share this new stamp set and patterned paper pack, Fight Like A Girl designed by Gina!   They are both available in the store right now!!

Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness month we are kicking off the first week with this cancer themed release and a full week of challenges on Stamp TV. Each challenge has a prize giveaway, so be sure to play along! 

For every stamp set sold this month, Gina K Designs will be making a donation to the American Cancer Society for cancer research.  So enjoy the hop and then watch for a new challenge every day in the Stamp Out Cancer Forum on Stamp TV!

I have three cards to share with you today, one specifically geared for Breast Cancer and two others that are appropriate for encouragement for any type of cancer - or any other time someone could used a little virtual hug!


I kept my first card clean and simple with lots of white space.  I embossed the cancer awareness ribbon in white and then diecut it with a Floral Ovals die, sponging it with pink before I removed it from the die.  I love that you could use any color ink on this card to make it applicable for any other type of cancer or disease.



My second card features the gorgeous patterned paper in this pack and a beautiful butterfly colored with Spectrum Noir markers.  If you look carefully you'll see some Liquid Pearl dots on the wings.  Soooooo pretty in real life!  My butterfly is popped up to give it the illusion of flying above the card.


And just one more card using the rest of the patterned paper from the last card.  This time I used the sweet pot of soup and colored it with copics, popping it up over a mat cut with the Spellbinders Pierced Circle die.  I stamped the sentiment on the "less fussy" piece of patterned paper, so I didn't lose it in the design.

Be sure to stop back over the week to see more cards made with this set and paper pack and play along with our challenges on Stamp TV for some AMAZING prizes!  See you there!  Now off you go to see what our wonderful guest designers of the month came up with!

Here's the list...

Your cards are beautiful! I really like how you embossed the ribbon in white and put the pink behind it. The paper you used for your second card is gorgeous, and I love the liquid pearls on your butterfly. Your sentiment on your third card looks fantastic on your wide band of patterned paper. Well done on all three!
