Gina K Designs August Release Blog Hop | Day 2

Hello friends and welcome to Day 2 of the Gina K Designs August Release Blog Hop! Today we're featuring two more brand new stamp sets - Todd Turtle and Perfect Poinsettia! Make sure you check out the details on how I created both of my cards and then check out how you can win a $50 gift certificate to Gina K Designs.


Happy Holidays Card | Perfect Poinsettia Stamp Set


This first set is called Perfect Poinsettia Stamp Set by Claire Brennan. I was so excited to see a Christmas stamp set. Yes, we still have awhile before Christmas, but I was quite delighted to get a jump start on my Christmas cards. This set is perfect for creating a gorgeous layered image or a simple outline. The options are unlimited. To create this card, I stamped the outline images onto colored cardstock with Versamark embossing ink and heat set them with gold embossing powder.

I then stamped and embossed the sentiment on the Fabulous Label Die. I then layered this onto a piece of Red Velvet cardstock and trimmed around it. I then layered this onto an embossed piece of white cardstock before.


Turtley Awesome Card | Todd Turtle Stamp Set


You may have noticed the name of my blog, 17turtles and if you guessed correctly, I kind of love turtles. So, when I saw this Todd Turtle Stamp Set by Beth Silaika, I immediately fell in love! There are several adorable sea critters on this set, but the darling turtle just called to me. The other thing I love about this set, is that it coordinates perfectly with her other recents designs - Karen Dolphin and Vicky Mermaid.

To create this card, I stamped the turtle onto Gina K White Cardstock with Memento Ink and then colored it with my Chameleon Pens. I then fussy cut it and adhered it using double sided foam tape to give it a touch of dimension. The circle and square die cuts were created using Gina K Designs Single Stitched Circle Dies, the Double Stitched Circle Dies and the Single Stitched Square Dies.

Get Through This Card | Nurturing Blooms Incentive Stamp Set


Last, but not least, is a card I created using the new Incentive Set called Nurturing Blooms. To create this card, I used my MISTI to help stamp the various bloom images in a mix of green inks. I love creating my own backgrounds using inks and this set was perfect for this.

I then used the Fabulous Label Die to die cut the ovals from white cardstock and vellum. I then stamped the sentiment onto the white cardstock. Before adding the sentiment pieces, I adhered a length of Gina K Sheer Satin Fancy Ribbon in White and Gold to add a touch of elegance to the design.
