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!

So while creating and playing with my Alcohol Ink and Gina K. Fancy Foils, I decide I wanted to try using Gina K.’s Amalgam Ink on one of the panels. Well, I inked up my stamp and after I stamped it, I though… it didn’t work. But what I didn’t realize, was that what ever the Amalgam Ink was made of, it reacted to the Alcohol Inks. I was able to do a Ink Lift with Gina K. Amalgam Inks. I was so excited to share it with you! Here is a video I made to share the fun with you all! I do hope you will try it soon! 🙂

Here are two cards I did some ink lifting on!

Up Next is Hugs and Wildflowers Stamp Set and matching Dies! I love creating with this New Set by: Lisa. I wanted it to look like watercolor and a bit whimsical so I did off set on the flowers line art and the solid image.
