...May 2016 Tiny Textures Incentive set Blog Hop


The Cast and Crew for Gina K Designs welcomes you to a special blog hop featuring the new Tiny Textures incentive stamp sets from the May StampTV Release Party! We hope to inspire you with some beautiful card projects as you hop along to each of the designer’s blogs!


Tiny Textures is a fun stamp set that allows you add a splash of something fun to your scrapbook pages or will help you to make a cool stamped background to your card projects. The “Just Because” sentiment from the set is ideal to add the finishing touch to a quick, but thoughtful card!

Now for anyone who is new to Gina K (I know, there's can't be that many of you, but just-in-casey here's how you get your hands on this set:

This stamp set ships free with any $75.00 order placed at Gina K Designs store! 
for more details see the store page here.


Here's the set:

 For my first card today I used the large paint brush mark, I decided to mask off a little strip of card across the front of my front panel and then I stamped the brush mark at an angle using some of my new Gina K inks. I stamped across the top of the mask and then back along the bottom in the opposite direction. I love the coverage I got with these inks, I was using a super smooth cardstock and the ink looks so solid right across the image, great result.

When I peeled back the mask (which was a strip of post-it note) it left me a nice wide space to pop in my sentiment. I used a sentiment from the newly released Coffee set. I trimmed out a little Coffee cup from the set and mounted it on a little foam, stamped the steam and Bob's your uncle.
I used the following inks:  Sweetcorn, Sweet Mango and Kraft - Can I just say that the Kraft ink especially is my new most favourite, I have been looking for an ink to match kraft card stock for a very long time...THIS is the one folks!

Here's the coffee set, it is full to bursting with coffee related stampy stuff - just in case you haven't seen it... ;)

For my second card, I used the broad brush stroke again and made a plaid background with it using two tones of ink, I LOVE it, such a nice backdrop to any focal point, I added a rose from the Old Country Roses set. Tiny textures is cracking wee set, I haven't even scratched the surface here!

  27. Wonderful cards! I can't decide which one I like more. And they are made from two stamp sets, that I am definitely going to order next time I am shopping at Gina K. Designs. I hope they will still be in stock, the feather one went out so fast. I discovered your blog just weeks ago and was looking at the cards and reading about what has got you inspired to do the coffee set. I loved that old black coffee pot! And the card with the sugar bowl. But what really attracts me to this stamp set is the coffee beans:) I wanted to make a card with a coffee bean background the minute I saw them. And the roses set is just timeless.
