Gina K. Blast From The Past Hop Day #1!!!!!!!!

Welcome to a special Hop!!!!  The regular Gina K. Designs release will be at the end of the month, meanwhile we have a special Design Team hop!!!  We are all showcasing our fabulously talented Illustrators and highlighting some of our favorite stamp sets!!!  This way we get to show a little love for some "oldies but goodies"!!!!  Tonight it's some fun with Melanie and Nina!!!!

  • Stamps: Cuddles And Hugs
  • Paper: Pure Luxury White, Wild Dandelion, Grass Green, Chocolate; BG Origins
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black; Copics
  • Accessories: Clip, Ribbon, Flower Brad, Pearls
First up is Melanie's absolutely adorable Cuddles And Hugs!!!!!  It's such a sweet stamp set!!!  And of course the images are fabulous to color with Copics!!  I used the Pure Luxury Cardstock colors of Grass Green, Wild Dandelion, Chocolate and White.  The dp is Basic Grey Origins and the Gingham Ribbon matches perfectly!!

  • Stamps: Vintage Borders
  • Paper: Pure Luxury Black Onyx, White
  • Ink: Versamark
  • Accessories: White EP, Pearls, Ribbon
Next is such a beautiful and versatile set from Nina, Vintage Borders.  As a background or as a focal point these stamps are just beautiful!!  I stamped the image several times in Versamark and embossed it in white.  And since I love a pop of red with black and white I thought a touch of ribbon and pearls would do the trick!  The edging is the Spellbinder's Tulip Borderability.

For even more samples of some of our favorite 'Blast from the Past' GinaK Designs stamp sets, check out these participating designer's blogs:
The entire GinaK Designs team would like to invite you to the virtual Release party we'll be having this Thursday, August 5th on StampTV.  It will be a bit different than our usual release party, but we'll still have challenges, contest questions, and designer samples that you won't want to miss out on!  More information on that event will be shared by GinaK soon, so stay tuned to her blog for all the details this week!!

~ Have A Creative Day! ~
