Gina and Angela have put their heads and creative minds together and released the Unity Stamp Company, “Gina & Me” stamp sets and the Gina K Designs “Ang & Me Supplies Kit”.

The “Gina & Me” stamp set includes 11 pre-cut rubber stamps:

  • “Can’t PICTURE life without you” sentiment 
  • “Best Selfie Ever” sentiment 
  • “Wishing my BESTIE a beautiful BIRTHDAY” sentiment 
The stamp set is available on the Unity website at: www.unitystampco.com. 

“Ang and Me Supplies Kit” includes:
  • 10 sheets of Pure Luxury Card Stock
  • 3 Yards of Pure Luxury Ribbon
  • Ang and Me 6 X 6 Patterned Paper Pack
The supply kit is available in the Gina K. Designs Online store at: www.ginakdesigns.com. 

Here is the project that I have created for the hop:
 This card I made using Gina K Designs Pure Luxury Card Stock in:
White Heavy Base, White Layering weight, Sweet Mango, 
& Dark Chocolate. The wonderful pattern paper is from the paper pack 
Ang & me. All these product are in the Ang & me Kit .
This wonderful stamp set, is big. I only used the girls top half. 
The sentiments in this set are perfect.
I added a wood frame and bling. I also colored the ladies 
with my Spectrum Noir pencils. 


I couldn't resist the wonderful butterflies in this set.
There are two. One is a little bigger than the other.
I used the White Heavy base card stock from the kit, I also used the
 layering weight white for the sentiment & for the butterfly on the front.
I also stamped the smaller butterfly on the inside and colored them both 
with my Spectrum Noir markers  IB-1,2,3 & BT-7.
 I also used Spectrum Noir pencils in # 65, 69, & 71

Thanks for coming by. I really appreciate your comments!!!
