GKD – Flashback Friday

Hi Friends! Welcome to my blog! Today is Flashback Friday and I have a couple of cards to share with you! First is this card that I did a little watercolor on!

Really enjoyed watercoloring this poinsettia and really like that there is a set of dies if you want to cut it out! ❤ It is a great size to watercolor.

Gina K. Designs Supplies Used:


Other Items used: Twine, Watercolor Paper, Daniel Smith Watercolors

Next is a card made using stamp set: Very Merry Christmas

I love this set by Emily Loggans & I think I am going to have to pull this set out to create a few cards like this! I stamped the background music stamp on the White layering weight card stock using Kraft Premium Dye Ink the did a little ink blending with Sandy Beach over the whole panel. Adding a little more ink on the outer edges. I didn’t add to much of the Sandy Beach ink to the middle as I wanted to leave it more white so I could add the Turquoise Sea after I stamped the greeting in Embossing Ink & heat embossed it using GKD Fine Detail Embossing Powder. I also die cut the topper to the ornament and then added the embossing ink all over it and then heat embossed it in GKD Silver Embossing Powder. Stamped and Die cut the Holly leaves and foiled them using the Turquoise Sea Fancy Foil and I had a piece of the stripes left over from another project so those got added to the side! All product are listed below!

Hello and Welcome to Karen's Creative Designs. I have been enjoying making cards for about 6 years now. I started out making Scrapbooks for the Grandkids. Searched You-Tube for techniques for background and found Gina K.Designs. I was hooked and just had to make cards! I have always been one to have a craft of some sort to do. I have done some crochet, jewelry making, pottery, cake making, ect.... you get the picture! I am hooked on card making and I love that it brings a smile to someones face when they receive a handmade card!

  1. I love your technique. I just learned of you. Since I’m new to your site where do I find your measurements for your cards? Thank you. You are so creative!

    1. Hi Jennifer, I am so glad you have joined me. Most of my cards are 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″.Every now and then I do make a larger card. I usually do list the measurements under my videos, but I will try to remember to list them here as well. Thank you again for joining me! 🙂 ❤

  2. I’m always in awe of your creations! You are so talented. I especially love the bag and tag using the snowflake! I do have a question though…why do more people not make the 5×7 cards? The 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ seem so small to me. Thanks for all your hard work.

    1. Hi, Thank you so much for your comment! My reason for making this size is for a # of reasons. I make a lot of cards and being able to get two card bases from one piece of card stock is best for me. Also mailing it is a little less expensive, and I decorate the inside to my cards and that is even more paper that I get better use from one sheet of card stock. Every now and then if I want to make a special card I will make a larger ones. So for the others, I’m not sure. 🙂
