I love the sentiment "Sometimes you win, sometimes you learn" and I'm going to stick this card up on my wall and leave it there! lol. Those little cacti are just perfect for this sentiment and I heat embossed them with white embossing powder before 'watercolouring' them. I smooshed some Gina K Inks onto a sheet of clear acetate and loaded up my paintbrush with a little water before picking up the ink colours to fill in my embossed image, this is a great way to get that watercolour look and to have it match your cardstock exactly! It takes the guesswork away and you have a nice watercoloured image!


For this next card I stamped the solid images in Sweet Mango Ink (Gina K) and then went in with some colouring pencils to add a little shading.


I die cut the images using the matching does included in the set and then arranged them around a circular sentiment panel that I had cut out with the Gina K/Thermoweb stitched circle dies. 

For both of my card background panels I couldn't resist taking some of the petite patterns papers and running them through my laminator with some of those foils. They came out beautifully! There's a great selection of designs in this set that will work for any occasion and you can really stretch the value of this pack by using them with your foils.

Gina K Designs –Fun with Fabulous Foil-Mates Blog Hop

Hi everyone! Gina K and the team have received such amazing feedback on the new Foil-Mates, Fancy Foils and dies that we have decided to put together a special hop for you today! This blog hop is a blend of a video blog hop featuring tutorials from Gina K and a few members of the team and a traditional blog hop featuring beautiful cards from other members of the team. 

Over the past few weeks, the Foil-Mates products have been flying off the shelves at Gina K Designs. Please be assured that if they are out-of-stock, they will quickly be back on the shelves again soon. In fact, Gina just stocked the shelves with a fresh batch of Foil-Mates, Fancy Foils and dies and more will be on the way.

If you are new to Foil-Mates, they are used to step-up the shimmer and shine in your card projects! Creating cards is never more easy and beautiful when you work with this new line of foil products. From beautiful pre-printed Foil-Mates, to stunning colors of Fancy Foils, when you combine them together the outcome is stunning! Discover how many various combinations of different cards and invitations you are able to create with Gina’s Foil-Mates products. With many of Gina’s most popular signature colors now available in foil, coordinating with Gina K Designs card stock and ink has never been easier!

We would like to thank Therm O Web for being such a great partner in the Foil-Mates line of products.

...New Foil Mates from Gina K and Thermoweb!

Folks There's a blog hop happening at Gina K designs right now to highlight the fabulous new goodies that Gina has created in association with ThermOWeb™...you might wanna go see... here's a few pics, but go check out the hop:

 


These background designs are so fun and can be used for all different occasions! You can also customize them with water based inks like the Gina K. Designs ink cubes. You can also use watercolor paints, alcohol and water based markers, and more prior to adding your foil. So each project can be unique!

There are two different types of focal image sets.

The Sentiments are perfect for Birthdays, Weddings, Anniversaries, Friendship and Support.

The Invitations are great for Birthday Parties, New Years Eve get-togethers, Retirement Parties, Weddings, Showers and of course, Save the Dates! What bride wouldn't love a foiled Save the Date card or Wedding invitation? And you can use the inside FOIL-MATES™ pieces for all the details or you can create them yourself using a laser printer and foil them to match when using the Gina K. Designs Fancy Foils™ or other Deco-foil™ products!

I love the foil colors in this collection!



Here are many of the cards Gina made for the FOIL-MATES™ line.

...throwback to the last time I footered with clay.



So now and again I make some pottery stuff, I fire them and glaze them myself - lots still to learn, but it's addictive. I sell some of these at craft fairs and I loaded up a few things to Etsy to see how that goes, but mostly it's just for fun. I was taking some pics this evening and thought maybe you might like to see, this is a 4 inch tall mushroom/toadstool ring tree - I thought it was cute, I love working with clay and don't get to do it nearly enough, but these are fun. I adore how the glaze pools and settles, it's like magic! If you are curious there's a link to my Etsy in the sidebar. :)
