Gina K with My Sweet Petunia!

Tuesday, August 29, 2017


Hello everyone!

Welcome to Gina K Designs and the My Sweet Petunia’s Misti Blog Hop! You should be coming here from Susie Moore blog, next you will be going to Giovana Smith blog.  We are so happy you joined us for this fun collaboration blog hop. The design team has created some wonderful designs that will hopefully inspire you along the way. We all will be featuring the newly released Boho Flowers Mini Kit.




We have some great prizes all you have to do is leave a comment on each designer's blog (listed below).  You will be entered into a drawing for our hop prizes, which include winner's choice of  Original or Mini Misti or Gina K's upcoming newly released Stitched Leaves Mini Kit.   The deadline for commenting is September 5th at noon central time.  Winners will be posted on the My Sweet Petunia blog winners page and on the Gina K. Blog no later than Friday, September 8th.

Here is my card:




1.  I started out using Gina K. Design Ocean Mist premium dye ink for my masked off background,
2.  I then stamped largest flower from the Boho Flower Mini Kit with the Gina K. Onyx Black ink,



3.  I then masked the large flower and stamped the smaller flower from the kit,


4.  I left the larger flower masked and stamped the flower on the left side.

5.  I then positioned the "you" stamp from the Boho Flower Mini Kit and stamped it in the Gina K Onyx Black Ink,


6.  Hopefully you can see the grid that I printed on acetate.  I bought these acetate sheets from a local store, this acetate is specifically for inkjet printers.  The grid can be found on Splitcoaststampers website under My Sweet Petunia.  There are a number of tutorials and grids that you can download.  This grid helps you to line up sentiments or anything that you need lined up that you cannot do from the Misti.  Here I am lining up the sentiment under the already stamped "You". 


7.  I added the butterfly and finished the card off by adding some enamel dots in the middle of the flowers and on my card.

There you go....using the Misti is so perfect to get your stamps positioned where you want them and get a crisp and clean stamped image!  I don't know how I stamped before without it.  This is definitely the number one tool I go to for all my stamping needs!

Thank you for stopping by and please come back again soon!

Here is the list to join the hop.  You should be going to Giovana Smith next from my page.  Good luck everyone!
