Therm O Web & Gina K Designs Holiday Release Blog Hop!!

Pin It
HELLO CRAFTY FRIENDS!! 
Today we're CELEBRATING the NEW Therm O Web & Gina K Designs Winter Stamp-n-foil Release with a FUN Blog Hop!! Here's a look at the ENTIRE Release!! 
I've used the NEW Holly Jolly Collection for my Projects today and I just LOVE how FUN this set is too create with!! There are SO MANY possibility!! So lets take a Closer Look at the Holly Jolly Collection and the Projects that I've created using it!! 


Here's my First Card using the NEW Gina K Designs Holly Jolly Stamp-n-Foil Products!! They're going to be PERFECT for all of your Holiday Project making needs!!

I started by Stamping the Stamp-n-Foil Images onto the Stamp-n-Foil Papers!! I've used Several Gina K Design Inks to create a Multi Colored Poinsettia!! Peach Bellini, Tomato Soup and Red Hot for the Flower, and Jelly Bean Green and Fresh Asparagus for the Leaves!!
I used Deco Foil in Black to Foil the Poinsettias and I LOVE the  way they turned out!! Next I took the coordinating Dies to Die Cut them out!! I created 3 for my Project today!!
I wanted the Background to be one Layer so I Stamped the Pine Branch Image using a couple Gina K Designs Inks in Jelly Bean Green and Asparagus and some Lucky Clover Distress Ink!! I also added some Double Stamping just to create alittle more dimension!! Then  I Inked the background with some Tumbled Glass Distress Ink, just to make the Pine Branches and Poinsettias POP off the Card Front!!

I Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment and then added some Black Soot and Picket Fence Paint splatters!! After the Paint Splatters were Dry I also added some Water Droplets and I really like the texture and depth it adds to the Pine Branches!!

I Stamped the Poinsettia Centers using some Gina K Designs Sweet Corn Ink and then added some Tonic Studios Glitter Pen to the Poinsettia Leaves and some Nuvo Drops over the Dots to add some Dimension!! Then adhered some of the iCraft 3-D Foam Squares to the Back of the Poinsettias and adhered them to the Card!!

For even more Sparkle I adhered some Cream Snowflake Sequins I had in my Stash!! I added some Tonic Studios Nuvo Drops to the Center of the Snowflake Sequins too, just to tie it all together!! I used the New Gina K Designs Permanent Adhesive Dot Runner to adhere the Card panel to the Gina K Designs Premium Cardstock in Luxury White A2 Cardbase!!



For my Second Card I've created a Shining Holiday Card using one of my FAVORITE Multi-Foiled Techniques to make the Lights appear as though they're actually "Blinking"!!

When I saw the NEW Stamp-n-Foil Foil Mates Holly Jolly Detail Sheets, I KNEW I had to create a card using the Lights and several of Gina K Designs Fancy Foils!!

After cutting the Foil into small pieces (I used Gina K Designs Fancy Foils in Sparkling Silver, Radiant Red, Glittering Green, Dazzling Orange, Brilliant Blue, Red Velvet, Grass Green, and Sweet Mango) and using Purple Tape to adhere them in place, run them through the Laminating machine and then SQUEAL in delight after you removed the Foils!! You'll have a String of Lights that actually looks as though the Lights are "Blinking"!! How AWESOME is that!!??


Here's a Quick Video to show them "Blinking"!! It's always so hard to show just how AMAZING the Shine/Sparkle or in this instance the "Blinking" effect is without seeing it in real life!! SUPER FUN Right!!?? Who wouldn't want a Holiday Card like this!!??

Next I Stamped the Holly Leaves and Berries!! I used Gina K Designs Inks in Peach Bellini, and Red Hot for the Berries and Gina K Designs Inks in Key Lime, Lucky Clover and Distress Ink in Lucky Clover for the Leaves!!

I Foiled them using Black Deco Foil and then used the coordinating Gina K Designs Dies to Die Cut them out!! I ended up cutting the Whole Berry away to use on top of the Ornament after I applied Tonic Studios Morning Dew Nuvo Drops to add some Dimension!!

For the Ornament I Stamped the Design using Reverse Confetti Inks in Baby Blue and Navy Blue!! Using an Ink Dauber to apply the Navy Blue Ink just around the edges of the ornament for some Dimension!! Then I used the coordinating Gina K Designs Holly Jolly Dies to Die Cut it out!!

I Foiled the Ornament using Gina K Designs Sparkling Silver and Deco Foil in Gold for the Ornament Topper!! I also Stamped and Embossed the Ornament Hook from the Set and then Foiled it using Gold Deco Foil as well!! I Fussy Cut it out and adhered it using the New Gina K Design Adhesive Tape Runner!!

I Stamped the Holly Images on my Card Base to create a Holly Garland across the top of my Card!! I used Gina K Designs Ink in Jelly Bean Green, Fresh Asparagus and Distress Ink in Lucky Clover!! I also added some Ink to resemble the Soft Glow of the Lights!! I used Carved Pumpkin Distress Ink, Red Hot and Lime Green Gina K Designs Ink and Baby Blue Reverse Confetti Ink!! Then I used Distress Ink in Tumbled Glass to add some Inking behind my Ornament and then Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment!! Some Black Soot and Picket Fence Distress Paint Splatters and then it was time to put my Card together!!

I adhered on of the Light Strings to the Card using the Gina K Designs Adhesive Tape Runner and the other Set of Lights Strings using some iCraft 3-D Foam Squares that I cut down to fit behind the Lights!! I also used iCraft Foam Squares to adhere the Ornament and Holly Leaves!! To finish of the Ornament I added some Sequins and Tonic Studios Nuvo Drops in White!! I added some White Gel Pen Details and my Card was done!!

You certainly made your light and bauble pop and shine bright. You've a lot of patience cutting the foil in so many little bits but boy was it worth it.

Thankyou for the detailed tutorials I'm pretty sure I will be doing some of your ideas for Christmas this year. Xx
