Hi Everyone!

The Cast and Crew from Gina K Designs welcomes you to our new release blog hop featuring stamps that were released last Thursday night. We hope to inspire you with some beautiful card projects as you hop along to each of the designer’s blogs!  Today, we are featuring the brand new Mini Kit called My Anchor. This kit is perfect for masculine cards. You can mix and match these images with other greetings from your collection to create perfect birthday cards, Father's Day cards and so much more!
The stamp set is also sold separately for those who would like that option. :)


Here is a full look at the new My Anchor Mini Kit:



And here is an up close look at the stamp set included inside the kit or sold separately:


Here is a card I make with the My Anchor Kit using the stamp set, card stock and some of the ink cubes:


I used the woodgraining technique with Warm Cocoa ink to create the background and stamped the image and greeting in Charcoal Brown ink. Both ink colors are included in the kit along with Dark Sage and In-the-Navy. I added a little ribbon and baker's twine from my stash and this card came together in just a few minutes. :)

You can click on all of the photos to see larger images.

BIG10 SALE and a BIG10 Story. :)

For many of you who have followed me for years, you already know that my youngest daughter is a competitve swimmer.

She's had quite a ride along the way!

Rina started swimming competitively around six years old but she actually learned to swim at age two.

 Ages 2, 6, 12 and 18. 

She broke a state record at age 12. She was invited to a USA Zone Camp at age 14. When she was a freshman in high school, she was the first high school girl state champion swimmer that McFarland high school had ever had.


She swam at many national meets throughout the years and became pretty fast! In her junior year, she decided she wanted to keep on swimming in college and started looking for the perfect school. She was recruited by four Big10 and other colleges and she ultimately chose the University of Minnesota!


In the fall, she moved into her college dorm and began college training with her new team.


As a college freshman, she has already posted many new lifetime best times! She's very dedicated to the team and we only got to see her for two days over Thanksgiving and three days over Christmas due to her rigorous training schedule. Certainly not long enough to unpack anything!


And now, she is at her very first BIG10 meet as a Baby Gopher. 


Tom and I are fortunate enough to be able to be here and watch the her and her team swim this week and we are really excited! It's been a long time since we got to see her swim or got to see her at all! 

We just want her to have fun and enjoy the experience of the BIG10 meet. (She's already proven herself this year by posting best times and scoring points for her team.) We hope she just relaxes and enjoys the moments. She's certainly worked hard and done everything she was supposed to do. Hopefully she will come away with a great experience and she'll be ready and excited for the next season!
---------------------------------------------
Just to have some fun,  we are having a BIG 10% off sale at Gina K. Designs! (This sale is in NO way is affiliated with Rina, the swim meet or anything else to do with swimming. This one is all about STAMPING!)


We have lots of items back in stock too including many stamp sets! And we will be adding some more items throughout the week as inventory continues to arrive in our warehouse.

This coupon is NOT valid on orders already placed. This coupon is for new orders only and is subject to the merchandise on hand. If you leave items in your cart and an item sells out, it will get removed from your cart so don't hesitate if there is something you want. We can't give rainchecks on this coupon.

Also, keep in mind that your order must be $75 AFTER the coupon is applied in order to qualify for the incentive set. 

But to use the coupon only requires a minimum purchase of $10.00 so you can just get a little something if that's all you want. :) Use regular checkout and not Paypal express so that you can add the coupon code. You will still be able to choose paypal at the very end.

You can shop now by clicking here: Gina K. Designs Online Store

I hope you enjoyed my little tour down memory lane! And Happy Stamping!

Hugs,
Gina K.
