Gina K. Designs DT Challenge Hop AND Blog Candy!!!!!!


Oh what a fun hop tonite!!!  The Gina K. hop tonite is to use a favorite summertime memory as your inspiration!!!  Well........one of my favorite summer memories is teaching our kiddos how to ride their bikes!!!  And the new Stamp TV Kit, Enjoy The Sunshine, was so perfect!!!


  •  Stamps: Stamp TV Kit Enjoy The Sunshine
  • Paper: Pure Luxury in White, Lipstick Red, Wild Dandelion; BG Cupcake
  • Ink: Vivid Brick
  • Accessories: Red Glitter Pen, Brads
 The bicycle from the kit is so perfect and reminds me so much of the red bikes both of my kiddos had!!!  I used the Vivid Brick Ink as it matches wonderfully with the Pure Luxury Lipstick Red.  I also used the new Wild Dandelion along with Basic Grey Cupcake dp.  I went over some of the metal bike parts with the Red Galaxy Glitter Pen.


For the inside I stamped some tone on tone of the bike and added a bit of dp and then the sentiment in Oval Nesties.

For all the specific details on how to enter your card in Gina's Design Team challenge, please visit GinaK's Blog.

Then, stop by these participating GinaK Design Team member's blogs for their projects for tonight's hop:
NOW..........guess what????  I have some YUMMY Gina K. Blog Candy along with a special little gifty!!!  




So what is this?? Welllllll............the blog candy is the new Hippie Chic Mat Stack, an assortment of GKD embellies, a Stamp Set of YOUR CHOICE at 24.95 or less, AAAAAAAAND this really cool Pure Luxury Cardstock Swatch Ring.  I was visiting my talented stampin' friend, Misti and we were shopping and thinking how nice it would be to have a way to carry around Pure Luxury swatches so we could match them to various dp or ribbon or embellies that caught our eye!!  Well, she came up with this cool idea and so we just had to rush back to her house and make some!!!!  And they are coooool!!!  This ring has all the current Pure Luxury cardstock colors with the cardstock name on one side and the Copic marker match on the other side.  Some of the Copic colors match exactly, others are the closest to the color we decided.  And there's room to add more new colors as Gina adds them!!!

What do you need to do to enter to my blog candy???  Well any of you that know me know that I never ask much!!!  Just a simple fun question!!!  Soooooo..........just tell me your what your current favorite Pure Luxury color is!!!  That's it!!!  Feel free to spread the news too if you'd like!!!  I will draw a winner at random and post it here next Monday, June 21st, during our next Gina K. hop!!!!!  Good Luck and Have Fun!!!!

~ Have A Creative Day! ~
