Gina K. Designs...........Happy Spring Card Kit!!!!!

Smiley from millan.net

This is just a little hop to showcase the newest Card Kit by Gina K. Designs!!!! It's called Happy Spring and unlike the last few kits, the cardstock will NOT be pre-cut which means more paper and more flexibility for our customers. This kit includes 4 sheets of Pure Luxury card stock, 1 sheet of patterned paper with 4 exclusive quarter sheet designs, 1 yard of ribbon, some silver brads as well as the printed instructions and the Happy Spring stamp set all for $19.95!



I decided to make a tea bag holder...........but to use it to send along a little Springtime cheer by inserting flower seed packets instead of tea bags!!! I used Creme de Menth, Bubblegum Pink and White Pure Luxury Cardstock. Some Basic Grey dp and some beautiful Bubblegum Pink Grosgrain Ribbon that came in the Stamp TV Kit!!! You know a card just isn't complete for me without bling! LOL

Here's the inside.........I did need to fold these flower packets a bit.........but perhaps there are some small ones sold somewhere, but I didn't see any. Either way........it's a cheerful Spring pick-me-up!!!!

Gina K. Designs Sneak Peek #4..........Springtime and Needlework!!!!

Smiley from millan.net
Final day of sneak peeks which means it's almost party time!!!!!!

This absolutely precious set is Rupa's new one called Spring Has Sprung!!!! And I am lovin' the adorable factor!!!! I used the new Pure Luxury Bubblegum Pink which goes so well with Lemon Drop and Creme de Menthe!!! And the dp is some new Digipaper called Hint Of Spring that comes in the new Stamp TV Kit!!! I chose Copics to match the cardstock and just had fun making this little duckie card!! I distressed the edges.......I haven't done that in a while but I enjoyed the look although I made a lovely shredded mess!!! LOL The ribbon is Little Boy Blue grosgrain ribbon that also comes in the kit!!! A little Stickles for the water and some pearls and a tad bit of the Pink Gingham ribbon from the Romance Assortment finishes it off!!!

Nina has created a lovely and delicate stamp set and coordinating sentiment set called Nana's Needlework!!! It's just so elegant!!! I embossed both the image and the sentiment in Detail White Embossing Powder on the Pure Luxury In The Navy and White cardstock. I put little pearl accents on the doily as well as the card front, you may have to click the image to enlarge it to see the pearls! I don't have a Nana......anyone want to adopt me??? LOL

The Free with 3 this month is called Friends. Wonderful and meaningful sentiments to celebrate our beautiful friendships!!!! I just wanted to showcase some of the sentiments so I made it into a simple background. I love the black and white and red color combo and kept it fairly CAS with just some cuttlebugging with the Herringbone folder and some tiny pearls. I used Pure Luxury in White, Black Onyx and Rocket Red.

Smiley from millan.netSmiley from millan.netSmiley from millan.netSmiley from millan.net

Well I'm new to Moxie Fab World but was introduced when Gina K. sponsored a recent challenge and the Gina K. DT all joined in the blog hop!!!! So because it was so much fun...........here's another!!!! LOL The Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger. It's an inspiration challenge using a fantabulously wonderful photo collage!!!! Go check out the details and play along too via the purple blog link above!!!!


  • Stamps: GKD Arranged With Love
  • Paper: GKD Pure Luxury cardstocks
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics
  • Accessories: Rhinestones, Ribbon
I was inspired by the colors and the feel of Springtime with the inspiration photo!!!!! Now we currently have 3 feet of snow at my house and at least 2 more months of winter..........but I couldn't help a Spring-y mood when I saw the photo!!! And the Arranged With Love stamp set, designed by the amazing Melanie Muenchinger, was a natural go-to!!!! I'm just loving my therapeutic Copic coloring time too!!! I used Gina's Pure Luxury cardstock in Rocket Red, Ocean Mist, Lemon Drop, Green Apple and White. Just a touch of embellies since the flowers really say it all!!


And just a bit of Spring to dress up the inside of the card too!!!! Now hop on over and play along!!!!

A Gina K. Special Thank You Blog Hop!!!!

It's a special thank you for a special group of stampers!!! The Stamp TV Challenge Hostess team did a FABULOUS job with their 3 month term of amazing challenges and fabulous creations to inspire us all!!!!


For this card I used Shannon's Color Challenge of Pink, Brown and White!!! Yeah, yeah, I know!!! Twist my arm as these colors are sooooooo out of my comfort zone! NOT!!!!!! LOL I do so adore this color combo and Gina's Hope Is Faith stamp set was perfect for it!!! I'm enjoying glittering up that butterfly!!! LOL I used Pure Luxury Innocent Pink, Chocolate Kiss and White. And I got my bling fix by making that pearl butterfly trail!!!! :)

And just a bit on the inside too!!! ;)



I had never made card candy, so I just had to try Carolina's Card Candy challenge!!! She made some of the most delicious card candy ever!!! And she inspired me to attempt my very first collection of it!! LOL And I thought it would be fun to use bright colors with Theresa's Hang In There!! I used Pure Luxury Rocket Red, Lemon Drop, Ocean Mist and White. I had fun with Copics on these images!! And the Fancy Tags are perfect for sentiments!

Tonight several GinaK Designs designers are joining together to host a special thank you blog hop to our recently retired StampTV Challenge Hostess Team. The four designers we're honoring tonight have provided weekly challenges for the STV members for the entire months of December, January, and February and we are so thankful for their inspiration and hard work!
Check out the Idea Center link again - Jessica has added a PDF version of each hostesses challenges, so they can be saved & even printed out for everyone's reference!

Each participating designer was asked to choose one challenge shared during the past 3 months and make a card to share on their blogs tonight as well as to send that card to the hostess.

Visit these links to see all the projects we've prepared for our alumni hostess team:


And, the new StampTV Challenge Hostess team is also joining in on the hop tonight!
