Gina K March Preview Hop Day 2


Welcome to day two of the Gina K Designs Design Team blog hop showcasing the newest March releases.  Melanie Muenchinger's newest release, "Bring the Bling" has so many options you can use with it!!!  Make sure you check out her blog for all the "insider tips" on how to use this set!!

I started my card with a base of Pure Luxury Metallic, Silver Lining, card stock.  I layered on a piece of Black Onyx.  I stamped my image with Memento Tuxedo Black and I added silver Stickles to just the hearts.  The sweet option is.. I COULD have used Stickles to completely cover the Bling image but decided to leave the flourishes in black.  LOVE LOVE LOVE this set!!! You will be amazed with the options this set will give you as well.


Theresa Momber's set, "Warm with Love" feels more than just warmth and love to me... I feel sooooo relaxed when I not only see this set... but work with it!! 

My card was created using Pure Luxury In The Navy card stock.  I layered it up with some Green Grass and my image was stamped on White card stock.  I used a brayering technique on this card that I learned from my sweet friend, Sherri Seffens, while visiting Gina K Designs in Wisconsin a couple summers ago.  (Such a fun day!!)  HERE is Sherri's tutorial from her blog on how to create this awesome background. 

In addition to Theresa's newest set, I paired up the trees from her "Life is Good" set alongside "Warm with Love" to create this peaceful image. 



Next up, Asela Hopkins, "Make a Splash"!!!  The images in this set are just adorable and I couldn't decide which ones I wanted to work with first!!!  My card base is Ocean Mist and I layered it with Turquoise Sea which I tore the top off and added a bit of Tim Holtz Distress ink, Broken China, to the edges.  I stamped my image on White card stock and colored with my Copic markers (see colors used below).  I couldn't resist adding Melanie's "Bring the Bling" to the top of the already sprouting whale along with more Stickles.  I also used the single "bling" stamp to add a few dots to the Turquoise Sea layer.  My twill was stamped with part of one of the sentiment stamps in the set as well.  I popped up the seashell with Pop Dots and added a small starfish charm to the stamped seashell. 

Now hop along with the other DT members to see their amazing creations and remember.... add a comment to each blog as Gina will be drawing for winners of these stamps as well!!!  You won't want to miss a chance!!!

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!!  Enjoy the hop and good luck!!! *smile*

Your silver, black and white card is so elegant Tina. The scene you created in your swan card is lovely and I love how you combined the Bring on the Bling as the whale's spout - so creative (and pretty).
