Gina K. Designs - Fun With Fabulous Foil-Mates Blog Hop


WELCOME! :) 

Hi everyone! 
Gina K and the team have received such amazing feedback 
on the new Foil-Mates, Fancy Foils and dies that we have decided to put together 
a special hop for you today! This blog hop is a blend of a video blog hop featuring tutorials 
from Gina K and a few members of the team and a traditional blog hop 
featuring beautiful cards from other members of the team.  

Over the past few weeks, the Foil-Mates products have been flying off the shelves at Gina K Designs. Please be assured that if they are out-of-stock, they will quickly be back on the shelves again soon. 
In fact, Gina just stocked the shelves with a fresh batch of Foil-Mates, 
Fancy Foils and dies and more will be on the way. 

If you are new to Foil-Mates, they are used to step-up the shimmer and shine in your card projects! Creating cards is never more easy and beautiful when you work with this new line of foil products. From beautiful pre-printed Foil-Mates, to stunning colors of Fancy Foils, 
when you combine them together the outcome is stunning! 
Discover how many various combinations of different cards and invitations you are able to create with Gina’s Foil-Mates products. With many of Gina’s most popular signature colors now available in foil, coordinating with Gina K Designs card stock and ink has never been easier! 

We would like to thank Therm O Web 
for being such a great partner in the Foil-Mates line of products. 









Enjoy the gorgeous inspiration samples from the team and then comment on each blog. 
We will be selecting one lucky commenter at the end of the hop and that 
person will win a $50 Gina K Designs gift certificate! 
To see who won, check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hop.
 Ready for some inspiration? 
Here are a few of the projects I have created for today’s hop:

I hope you will enjoy the video I have added for you!  :) <3


Thank You for watching and Please subscribe to my channel.

Here is the card that I made in the video!  <3


This is the finished card project that I made in the video!
I used the following product:
 Gina K. Designs Foil-Mates, Fancy Foils, Sentiments and Dies for Therm -O- Web 
       Foil-Mates: Swirls & Flourishes  — True Friend
       Fancy Foils : Grass Green and Sweet Mango
       Dies : Squares : Small set and Large set
       Sheer Satin Ribbon: White/Gold   I dyed it with Sweet Mango Premium Dye Ink
       Pure Luxury Card Stock - White Heavy Base Weight        
       &  Sweet Mango
       Copic Markers - YR18, G20, G24


Next I just had to use Gina's new Doily Die to make a circle card:  <3
It is kinda hard to see, but behind the Sentiment I foiled the Stars Foil-Mates and so you can kinda see stars peeking out from behind the Sentiment! You can't always see them, but you know they are there! ;)
