Something To Brighten Your Day

I hope all is well and you're surviving this stay-at-home situation.  
I've been following along the internet with Facebook, You-tube, Instagram and blogs as I'm sure most of us have.
So many exceptional projects and fabulous designers offering hours upon hours of instruction and inspiration.  
Most of us have had many extra hours in our studios to play and discover all our supplies again.  I have taken this opportunity to focus a few days at a time on one medium and stamps that I feel deserve some love.
Today I want to share projects featuring Rina K and Gina K products.
Rina's new Electro-pop palette is so fun and bright. 

This first card is Screamin Green Neon Glitz over a green inked background.  I also stamped the leaves with Hello Yellow and Screamin Green Ink.  I finished the card up with black accents.


This next card uses the donuts that I made several weeks ago and I found in my stash.  
Once again I inked the background using Rina K Rockin Red and Poppin Pink Ink.
Using a stencil I put Poppin Pink Neon Glitz on the card front.  I finished the card off with the donuts and mounted on a cardfront with a black accent layer.

The card next in line is simple and elegant.  This card features items from the Gina K line.  As always I used my signature black on this card and needed to prep the black paper in order for the Turquoise Sea Glitz Glitter Gel to pop.  I started by using white pigment ink through the bubble stencil.  By doing this  first step my glitz gel will be more visible.
Stamping the large flower image from the Daisy Delight set and accenting a few areas with Copic markers.  I call this done.

This last card is my favorite.  Starting with the black panel, I wanted to try a decofoil color from my stash.  I've had the Opal foil for a long time but with its  translucency the color never showed up much on paper.  Well, with the new Blanco Transfer Gel, its the perfect solution to use before foiling.  I love the diagonal design from the stencil and how this step turned out.  Now it needs a focal image and sentiment.  Using Gina K Stamp & Foil Butterfly Kisses set and Rina K Electro-pop inks I stamped three images.  They looked a little flat so I stencils each butterfly with the matching Neon Glitz Gel.

I hope you enjoyed these cards and they brightened your day.

Take care and stay healthy.



  1. Love the texture and color in your designs. What a rich array of creativity. They certainly brightened this very gray and drizzly day in Vermont. TFS
