Gina K Designs - Introducing Tiny Textures

The Cast and Crew for Gina K Designs welcomes you to a special blog hop featuring the new Tiny Textures incentive stamp set from the May StampTV Release Party! We hope to inspire you with some beautiful card projects as you hop along to each of the designer’s blogs!

 Tiny Textures is a fun stamp set that allows you add a splash of something fun to your scrapbook pages or will help you to make a cool stamped background to your card projects. The “Just Because” sentiment from the set is ideal to add the finishing touch to a quick, but thoughtful card!



Enjoy the gorgeous inspiration samples from the team and then comment on each blog for your chance to win a $20 Gina K Designs gift certificate! To see who won, check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hop.


Inks: Cherry Red and Black Onyx
Stamps: Tiny Textures, Coffee, Planner Basics
Cardstock: White


Inks: Kraft, Warm Cocoa, Dark Chocolate
Stamps: Tiny Textures, Country Roads 2
Cardstock: White, Dark Chocolate, Kraft


I shared this one previously, but I wanted to let you know how I used tiny textures. After I stamped the bottle and the wrap, I made a mask of the two shapes and created the bubble effect with the spray image in the Tiny Textures set.

Inks: Turquoise Sea, Kraft, Sweet Corn
Stamps: Tiny Textures, Fill It With Flowers
Cardstock: White, Turquoise Sea



I thought that swatch was perfect to highlight the sentiment, and the sentiment ... well, it's just perfect for LOTS of cards!

    28. I love the red and black squares! It looks very noble. And I was glad to see the "I love you" message. I was thinking recently that I don't see it often on cards. And I personally don't even have that kind of stamp in my collection and would love to have one.
