Let's Hop with Gina K Designs!

The Cast and Crew for Gina K Designs welcomes you to another fabulous Inspiration Blog Hop! This blog hop is for the brand spanking new StampTV Kit, Autumn Wishes.  Did you know we have a special group that you can join if you are a member of StampTV?  It’s called StampTV Kit Addicts!  Tricia Traxler shares all kinds of good advice and inspiration in there too!

Today, Gina, along with 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  random comment and that stamper will win a grab bag of Gina K. Designs products! To see who won, check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hop. The featured set today is called Friends to the End and there are matching dies in the kit as well!

I have a little bitty tutorial for you on how I colored my sweet little bee with Spectrum Noir Markers.

Step 1: Use GB8 to color the face of the bee.



Step 2: Add GB9 to the edges then go over the entire area again with GB8 to blend.


Step 3: Color every other line with GB8 and add GB9 to each edge.


Step 4: Add IG8 to all of the uncolored areas of the bee's body.  Add IG9 to the edges, then to blend, add IG6 to each dark grey area.


I added some glitter to the wings and popped up the bee on the card.


the colors I used




Now it's time to HOP!  Take a peek at what everyone came up with for this adorable Friends to the End stamp set and dies.  Don't forget to leave some love along the way to be eligible for some fun prizes.

So adorable! I will have to make several different ones to send out. I usually send out over 40. But I have been so busy(with OWH closing) I've had to skip a few holidays this year. So I need all the WOW I can get to make up. And this great kit will do the trick
