The One with the Gina K Designs April 2021 Card Projects
Updated: May 6
Hello everyone. Today I have a few card projects using some of the products from the NEW April 2021 release from Gina K Designs. I have a video doing some very simple stamping and a few cards that I stamped by hand, just playing around. In the video I used the Go To Greetings stamp set as well as the Count it All Joy stamp set to create a simple one layer card.

I also have this three card set using the same sentiment stamp set Go To Greetings. I love the font used in this set and spent several hours with just me and my acrylic block stamping away. I loved the results so much that I made them into cards.
This first card uses a diagonal design that is much easier to pull of perfectly using the MISTI, I was just playing and eyeballed the entire thing.
I was using a gray pigment ink for the majority of the stamping, then used Ranger Archival ink for the one "hello" to stand out among the rest. I added a simple pre printed sentiment from my stash by popping it up with some foam adhesive.
The entire panel was popped up with black craft foam and added to a medium gray card base cut to size A2 and scored in a top folding portrait orientation.
For the next card I stamped the first "hello" from the Go To Greetings stamp set and then proceeded to stamp off with the subsequent stampings aligned with the original to give an ombre effect. I also added another pre-printed "congrats" sentiment with foam adhesive.
For the next card, I stamped the "hello" vertically on a piece of heavy weight white card stock and then added the "you are the coolest" horizontally in Gina K designs Whisper ink. I then added one of the solid leaf images from the Count it All Joy stamp set.
I finished this one off with a frame die cut from black card stock and adhered with liquid adhesive. Popped it up with some craft foam and stuck it on a Fog card base, this time in an A2 side folding landscape orientation.
Last, but not least I have a fun card mixing the new stamps sets with the older Crafty Notes stamp set also by Gina K Designs. For this card I stamped the epicurean board from the Count it All Joy set onto alcohol marker friendly paper with alcohol marker friendly ink by Gina K and colored it with my alcohol markers. I also stamped the watercolor palette and Washi tape images from the same set and colored those as well. I just used my scissors to fussy cut them out.
I then stamped the "hello" sentiment from the Go To Greetings set with Gina K watermark ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I stamped it onto watercolor paper so that I could make a piece of art to tape to my board. I watercolored it using water based markers and a water brush. I used that same marker and water brush to splatter on the same color onto a piece of plain white cardstock cut to 3 1/2 by 4 3/4 for the background.
This is absolutely what I use my epicurean board for. I have two of them. It works great to handle my watercoloring in progress. I know many of my crafty friends will understand and relate.
Once all of my images were colored, I popped up the board and the palette and adhered everything else using tape runner adhesive.
The sentiment is another pre-printed sentiment that was there and ready for me to use. To finish it off I added a few clear water droplets from my stash.
I hope I've inspired you to create something today. To see more from Gina K Designs (CLICK HERE!) to visit her website.
