Masculine Themed Blog Hop -GKD

Hi, Crafters!  SO sorry for being so MIA in blogland these past few weeks!  What can I say but that morning sickness (all day for me!  :(  ) has kept me away for pretty much everything, including crafting.  So sad, I know.  BUT it will only last for a while so I know I'll be back up to par in a few weeks!

Now, on to today's hop!  Members of Gina K.'s Design Team have come together to host a hop with cards and projects featuring a masculine theme.

If you came from Giovana Smith's Blog, you're at the right place!  If not make sure to head over to StampTV where you will find a list of all those participating in today's hop.

Here is my super clean and simply masculine themed card:
I used none other that Gina K's Pure Luxury cardstock for my base and Kraft accent--gotta love that stuff!  The wonderful owl came from Asela Hopkins set "Nesting."  I left it blank so it could be an any occasion card.  :)
 Thanks so much for stopping by!   As soon as this nausea runs its course I'll be back to bringing you more crafty goodness on a more regular bases--promise!  ;)

Head on over to my friend Jennie Harper's Blog to see what she's sharing with you today!

Blessings, Janice :)

    Gina K Designs: Elegant Elements and By the Sea!

    Hi, everyone!  Today's Gina K Design sets are just awesome!  I love both yet both are very different.  First up is Elegant Elements:
    This is this months Free when you buy three deal!  Here is a super simple yet so fun card I made using one of the beautiful elements:

    I used some Stampin' Up inks and some Gina K ribbon (from this months StampTV kit!!) also.  SO very clean and simple!

    Alright, this next one is another one of Theresa Momber's fabulous creations: By the Sea!

    And I really like how my card came out, it kind of has a bit of vintage flair to it:
    I simply stamped the image and colored it with Copic markers, trying to stick to muted tones apart from the red.  The ribbon and the swiss dots DP are also from the StampTV kit--a must have!  :)  Gave it that aged look by sponging Desert Sand all around it!

    Well, thanks so much for stopping by! Make sure you stop by and visit the other DT members blogs for more great inspiration!



    Have a GREAT day!
