Gina K Inspiration Hop ~ Day #2!

The Cast and Crew for Gina K Designs welcomes you to another fabulous blog hop celebrating the new stamp sets from the May StampTV Release Party! We hope to inspire you with some beautiful card projects as you hop along to each of the designer’s blogs! Today, we are featuring two stamp sets by Beth Silaika and Claire Brennan.

The first set we are featuring is Sophie Pig by Beth Silaika. Beth has created a super cute set second set with the sweetest images and matching sentiments to make the perfect card project to make the card recipient smile or feel better right away! The second and third sets we are featuring are by our new Illustrator Claire Brennan. The sets are Old Country Roses and Fine Feathers. With Claire’s Old Country Roses set, you can create beautiful layered stamped images that make the most beautiful and soft roses that look like you have picked them right out of your own rose garden. Claire’s Fine Feathers set is a collection of fun feathers that are a perfect focal image to create a message of inspiration, hope, thanks and more! We are so very lucky to have Claire’s illustrator talents on our team!

Enjoy the gorgeous inspiration samples from the team and then comment on each blog for your chance to win a $20 Gina K Designs gift certificate! To see who won, check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hop.

For my card today, I used the Old Country Roses stamp set and created layers of color with my Spectrum Aqua Markers.


Step 1: Using the large triple rose image, color the entire image with the Sunflower Spectrum Aqua Marker.


Step 2: Spritz the watercolor paper with water & stamp the image.


Step 3: Using the layered triple rose, color the image with the Gold Spectrum Aqua Marker.


Step 4: Spritz the image with water, line up the image with the previously stamped roses & stamp the image on top.  (Note: don't spritz the paper with water this time because it will ruin the rose image you've already stamped)


Step 5: For the rose centers, use the Marigold Spectrum Noir Marker to color the stamp, spritz the stamp with water and line up the image.  Trim with scissors.


Step 6:  Using the leave image, color with the Olive Spectrum Noir Maker, spritz the watercolor paper & stamp the image.


Step 7: Using the leaf vein image, color with Moss Spectrum Noir Marker, spritz with water, line up the image and stamp.  Make two leaves & trim them with scissors.


Step 8: Once the images are trimmed and the card base is prepared, attach with foam dots and add some glitter to the center of each rose.
