{Gina K Inspiration Hop} The Wetlands


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! And as you hop through their blogs, make sure to leave a comment on each of them because we will choose a few random comments and those stampers will each win a grab bag of Gina K. Designs products! To see the full list of winners check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hops.


Today's hop features cards made with Theresa's new set, The Wetlands.  It is such a nice mix of images and sentiments and I love that there are images to color along with silhouettes.  For the card above, I used the two silhouette images, one in the background and another in the forefront.  I made a mask for my sponging by cutting an opening with my deckle rectangle die and sponged through it with inks... I don't remember exactly which ones, but I think Kraft, Prickly Pear, Honey Mustard and Charcoal were some of them. : )  The brownish birds were stamped first in Honey Mustard, then in Kraft, and the other background bird was stamped in Charcoal Brown that had been stamped off once. The bird in the front was stamped with Black Onyx.


This card is a repeat from the release party, but I just love it, so I'm sharing it again. : )  I watercolored the background after I had stamped my silhouette in Versamark and clear embossed.  I colored the dragonfly with Spectrum Noir markers and pencils.



And finally, a clean and simple anniversary card using papers from the Shabby Spring paper pack.  LOVE the combo of Turquoise Sea and Charcoal Brown!!


Well, that's it!!   I hope you've enjoyed today's hop and are all excited to start stamping !!  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 check out the stamps and supplies you saw on today's hop! :)

Trisha, your cards are so beautiful! My fave is the dragonfly. I love that you showed the canada goose with no coloring.

All fabulous but I especially love all your choices on the first card. The deckle masking is fantastic! I need to get those dies out more often.

Your cards are all so pretty, my fav is the first one-just love the look of it!

Yes, indeed, Turquoise Sea and charcoal brown are so very special. But the way you choose the paper and then decided on the amounts of colors to show is over the top.

Great combinations of light and dark shadows and wonderful colors. It amazes me that designers (such as all of you at Stamp TV) can create such amazing variations on the same stamps. TY for sharing.

Great samples showcasing the stamp set. You don't always appreciate a set until you see them in action. Thanks for the inspiration.

Terri (blindstamper) said...

Love, love, love that dragonfly. So wonderfully colored.

ckeller219 said...

Love your shadow stamping. Makes it so real

Joni said...

Great cards. My favorite is the dragonfly.

Pat Jandacek said...

Love the cards! The first is my favorite, too, and I think it's the genius of setting the silhouette base 'out of the box.' That really impresses me-just that action seems to add another whole dimension to the piece, imo. Hope I can remember that in my stamping attempts. The dragonfly is colored gorgeously; and the goose is presented beautifully. TFS

Judy Woodland said...

Tricia, your cards are all beautiful!! I love the depth and texture you achieve without tons of layers! I keep staring at your aqua card...the colors are amazing and your watercolored background set them off perfectly!

Ruth Sperling said...

Beautiful cards! I don't know which I like best.

Linda S said...

Very nice cards, Tricia. I have not kept track, but I think that your designs are usually among my favorites. Everyone always does very nice work, but if I had to rank order them my guess is that yours would almost always be near the top of my list.

Cheryl Depler said...

Oh I need to order more stamps. These are so great, thanks!

Linda said...

Your cards are beautiful and love your color choices. It would be difficult to chose a favorite. Thanks.
