Sneak Peeks 6 & 7 and some BIG news!

The new Hello Sunshine StampTV kit will debut this Thursday and it's packed with fun, relaxing summer images- both line art for coloring and bold for colored stamping. The patterned papers, ribbons, and embellishments are sizzling hot for summer and six of the colored card stocks in this kit are layering weight for easy die cutting with your Spellbinders dies and electronic cutting with your Silhouette Cameo, (or any other dies and electronic cutters you have.)


And our brand new One free with free- Life's a Beach, picks  up from where the kit leaves off with more coordinating images and greetings that can be used alone or can expand on the Hello Sunshine kit.


And now for some REALLY exciting news!
You asked ~ we listened!

Introducing:

Along with the highest quality rubber stamps, we will now be offering all of our new releases in clear photopolymer stamps as well!


Now you have a choice!
You can choose our deeply etched, precut rubber goodness and the highest quality clear photopolymer stamps on the market!

The first clear stamps we will be offering will be these 7 sets being released on Thursday. Then, over time, we will release some of our best sellers from the past. All of our new releases going forward will be available in both clear and rubber.

So, clearly, Gina K. Designs has something for everyone!

Stay tuned for some more fun products being released this month as well. :)
Make it a great day~
Hugs,
Gina K.

  5. Awesome sets!! Great news on the clear stamps. Just wondering if they will be at the same price as the red rubber? Looking forward to the release!

  6. Hi Kary- Yes, they will be the same price whether you purchase rubber or clear stamps.

  7. Wow! This is great news! I wish there were more single stamp options, maybe the older StampTV sets being broken up into single stamps. This is just a thought. It would definitely be a benefit for those that can't afford the full stamp sets.

    1. I like your idea immensely! There are some sets that I'd like one or two stamps from but wouldn't use the others in so being able to purchase individuals stamps in the ones I want would be grreat!

    2. I agree with you, there are several sets that I would only use a few and that would be nice to be able to purchase separately.

    3. This would be GREAT! I hate to buy stamps that I don't really "feel" to get one or two that I really "need" This thought had occurred to me when giving away parts of sets that do not come out perfectly. Would appreciate this option!!!!

  12. I think this is great to have a choice. For sentiments I love clear stamps, but for some of the more solid images, I prefer rubber so I can color on the stamps (I just think rubber works better for that.) Will there be a price difference?

    1. Hi Heidi,
      No, the price is the same whether you choose clear of rubber.

  13. Oh this is wonderful news. . .Love the quality Clear Stamps. I'll be buying them as soon as they're available.

  14. Well, clearly... this is so exciting!!! Can't wait to try a set of clear GKD goodness! I love the new set you are teasing us with above!!!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Exciting new.!!
    Just two questions (for now0Will the clear stamps stamp with the same quality as the rubber ones and will they cling to the storage pages that go in the binder boxes? Some clear stamps seem to have problems with the ink pooling on the unless they are sanded first.

    1. Jussie,
      Make sure you watch the release party presentation video tomorrow on StampTV. I will show you side by side just how easy our clear stamps are to use. You use them JUST like rubber. Pull them off the sheet, stick them on the block, ink and go. No sanding, no erasers, not thick slow drying inks. These work JUST like rubber or I would carry them.

    2. I should have also said, the storage sheet that these clear stamps come on can be added to the binder boxes by punching holes in them. Or you can always purchase binder sheet refills if you would rather use that system. But you don't have to. Just punch holes down the side to match a regular binder sheet and these will store in the binder boxes too. For smaller sets, you can use the backs of the larger sets or use binder sheets and stick two sets to one binder sheet. :)

  19. Clear stamps?! You just gained a customer.

  20. Oh, I am SOOOO happy about this! I do love the way rubber imprints (there IS a difference), but especially with things like greetings, clear photopolymer makes life so much easier!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Gina, I prefer the rubber. I find they give a better impression and nice to color on. It will be interesting to try out the different methods with the clear stamps. You are an amazing lady.

  22. Love that you will be offering the new releases in clear stamps!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Wow, I love it that you will do clear stamps, I hope to shop this release

    ReplyDelete
  24. That's great news Gina. I am assuming the price will be lower in price. If so, I hope you do the lace from the last release! Gotta have that lace and can't afford that and shipping!

    1. We were very surprised to learn that the clear stamps are more expensive than rubber, however, we will not be passing that increase on to our customers. The price will remain the same for either clear or rubber.

      Delete
  25. Great to know you will now be carrying the clear stamp sets. I think they are a lot easier to use when stamping on my projects. No more off set stamping mistakes for me! lol. But the stamp-a-ma-jig really helps with the rubber stamps when having to place the image is a certain spot. Anyway awesome info, cantwait to see what sets are coming out soon.

  26. Oh my gosh, Gina! You can't begin to imagine how excited I am over this news! :) I'll be shopping here more often! What a great way to start a Wednesday! :) "Clearly". ;)

  27. I love using Clear stamps and have wanted to order some of your past sets but since they were rubber and not clear I didn't...but now.....you just gained a new customer. Thanks so much for making all of us happy with this new choice!

  28. OMG! This is BIG! BIG BIG BIG BIG BIG BIG BIG! I am so excited! Gina. had 4 times the orders before, now she is gonna EXPLODE with orders!!!

  29. i am speechlessly delighted!!!!!!! i wish i could snap my fingers and transform ALL of my Gina K collection to clear stamps! i always felt torn, because there are so many Gina K sets I love, but I am a clear stamp girl in a major way. . . .I'm so EXCITED!!! :)

  30. Eeekssss....oh wow!!! So excited about this as I love clear stamps! This is BIG news :)

  31. Fantabulous news, Gina. I love the clear stamps, and even MORE, I love that we can just add them to our storage units by punching holes in the already prepared backing sheet they come on. I love all your stamps, but now.......my budget has been stretched to the limit before, but this is gonna "break the bank". Thanks for listening, Gina. You're the greatest!!

    ReplyDelete
  32. What wonderful news for my storage space!!!
    Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Oh Gina! This is so awesome! I love your stamps, but I can't stamp a sentiment straight with rubber no matter how hard I try. I love that I can get sentiments and images I want to use for one-layer cards in clear now! You rock!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Great news! Looking forward to the new releases.
    I was hoping the clear would be a little bit less expensive though than the rubber stamps. I do like both and use both kinds. Great addition to your product line.

    1. Yes, I agree. I was hoping so too! But I learned that our sets are really big by industry standards and you have to spread the clear images out a bit more so they don't mold together. I also learned that the different manufacturers are priced differently but the quality is different as well. We decided that it made sense to go with the better quality, even if it costs a couple more dollars. NOTHING is worse than a stamp set that doesn't stamp well, no matter how cheap it is. I hope you love the quality as much as I do. :)

  35. I am THRILLED to hear that you will be offering clear stamp options! I am sorry to say that I have never purchased your stamps before…just can't do rubber... you've gained a new customer now!!

    ReplyDelete
  36. It will be hard to decide on clear or rubber. Since all the rubber is on cling, I didn't mind buying it, but I mostly purchase clear. It's just that sometimes rubber is a better choice for certain techniques and coloring options. This is wonderful news! Can't wait to see everything.

  37. I'm a clear stamp user and love them. Thank you for this new offer.

  38. This is really big news! Great peek of the new StampTV kit.

  39. This is great news! I was just going to email you and ask if you were ever going to offer clear stamps. I have such a hard time stamping straight with the rubber, like to be able to see exactly where I am stamping. Thanks love your stamps and I am super excited about the clear stamps

    ReplyDelete
  40. It is nice you will be giving options but I am glad this means the red rubber will still be available as well because I am not a fan of clear at all. I am looking forward to the new sets but especially love the summer and beach one you showed today.

    1. I like having both options. Different strokes for different folks, right Verna?

      Delete
  41. It is always good to have options--great idea. I also like the idea of having some available individually. I find that part of the sets often are ones I probably would not use much and therefore do not feel I should spend my limited budget on a whole set when I would just use a couple of them. Thanks for all your wonderful videos.

  42. Great news, Gina! Can't wait to try out the new clear stamps. Just from the number of comments I'm sure you have made a wise move. Love the sneak peaks and can't wait to see the full sets! Congratulations on expanding your business! Big Hugs!!

  43. Oh I'm so glad you will be offering clear stamps - way to go Gina and team!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I am amazed at some of the comments re rubber stamps. They have never even tried your rubber stamps. I use both clear & rubber and find no difference, but it is nice of you to give them a choice. Gina, your a "Star" in my book !

    1. Thanks Diana,
      It's easy to not like something if you have had trouble with it in the past. I do have to say, I felt that way as well until I tried this Premium Quality Photopolymer. Clear stamps have come a LONG way, even from a couple of years ago...It feels so good to be able to provide different options for our customers. :)

  45. Great sneak peaks this month....and I was so happy to read your news about offering clear stamps! I assume this is what you were referring to on the SCS thread you commented on!! I'm so glad you found a quality clear stamp manufacturer to use. I have some crummy ones that don't see a lot of ink, but I have a lot of excellent quality clear stamps that are my go-to stamp sets. There definitely is a quality spectrum when it comes to clear stamps. I'm hopeful that reluctant stampers will give yours a try--I have no doubt you've made sure they are up to your standards! Glad to have this option with your amazing designs!

  46. Ahhhh, what a wonderful summer setting I (will) see.

  47. that IS exciting news - woohoo!!!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Congrats on this new venture Gina! I haven't had much experience with cling stamps as the majority of my stamps are GKD! I see from the comments that they allow for more precise placement - will have to give them a try! Looking forward to tomorrow!

  49. The sneak peeks are so fun today, Gina! AND, that's great news about the 'clear' stamps too :)

    ReplyDelete
  50. I'm so happy! Thanks Gina and team! I can use these types of images all year long here :D :D :D
    I didn't know so many prefer clear stamps. I luv luv luv your red rubber stamps. Some of my clear stamps are just awful - don't take ink, smoosh when stamping, etc... But I won't hesitate to buy either type from GinaK. Your quality is incomparable!

  51. WOW, Gina!!! This is FABULOUS news!!! How exciting to have the option of clear stamps or the beautiful rubber stamps.
