...January New Release Blog Hop- Day 2


Good morning/afternoon folks! Welcome to the second day of hops with the Gina K design team for our January release stamp sets! 

My apologies to anyone who tuned in yesterday expecting to see my day one post, due to unforseen electrical issues I was not able to get up and running yesterday. Many, many bad words were spoken, and with feeling, but hopefully today's post will make it...

Today we are featuring sets from Theresa, Lisa and myself! Be sure to comment on each of the blogs as you hop because we will be going away THREE $25 gift certificates to Gina K. Designs, one gift certificate each day!  Comment for more chances to win! Check StampTV Big News Forum a few days after the hops conclude where the winners will be announced. 

OK first up is the new set by Theresa, its called Framescapes, Enchanted Forest and it's a delightfully whimsical scene builder:

I love how, as well as the large frame scene satmp it's also possible to create litle tiny mini scenes and I have concentrated on those for my samples:

 I adore this mushroom stamp and had to create a little scene around it! I isolated the tiny scene on my card by dry embossing a decorative frame around it and sponging, with the die still in place, to create a focal place for my scene on the card front. I coloured with copics and added some white dots with paint. y fairy and her butterfly friend are playing hide and seek and they are stamped in Dark Chocolate ink.


My next bunch of samples show the 3 fairies from the set in their own little scenes, these are just delightful for tags and other tiny items! Much sponging, and then stamping with Gina K inks, which work beautifully on these solid stamps, I love the coverage.




The next set up today is You Are, by Lisa Hetrick, our newest designer!

I could not get away from that beautiful wreath image for all my samples for this set:


Since I am always thinking Christmas, the first thing I envisaged with this set was a Christmas Wreath and thankfully Lisa had included the word 'Joy' as part of a sentiment on the set, perfect! I just masked off that one word and made it my focal sentiment. I stamped the wreath twice and added various bits and bobs with the accessory stamps until I was happy! Finished with a couple of dabs of that fabby new goo - Crystalline drops, new by Gina K! LOVE that stuff.


Took the opportunity to ink up only part of the wreath for my inside panel.


Playing with that wreath again, this time in more harvest-y colours - I thought  I might accent the sentiment with a copic marker this time, I quite like this effect! Also thought it'd be fun to do a little piercing actually on the wreath stamp, I love how this turned out.


This one might be my favourite though! I stamped all my images with pure lemon juice and then used my heat tool to make them come alive as scorch marks, then I went back in with a fine liner in brown and sort of doodled the outlines of the stamps - this is a great way to add your own style to any given stamp, you really should try this, you can't go wrong!



I added a few extra details free-hand, I so enjoyed it that I went ahead and made an inside panel as well!

Last up, it's my set - Geo Thanks!

I've been after a nice geomentric all-purpose set for a while now! So many  options for this set and I'm just scratching the surface with my samples today, but now that my computer is playing nice again, I'll be able to upload a few more soon! Right, I'm off, I'm itching to see what everyone else has made of Geo thanks!! LOL! Sure hope these tickle!


Just before I go, here are the links for today's hop! Enjoy!
