Gina K Designs Vicky Mermaid

Thanks for stopping by.  If you are arriving from Theresa's, this is your last stop.  If this is your first stop, be sure to read all the way to the bottom to see where to start on this Gina K Designs/My Sweet Petunia Blog Hop.


I love Gina, she may be tiny but her heart is huge.  So when we decided to do a blog hop together, I decided to stock up on Gina K Design stamps, inks and cardstock.   I did run across the Vicky Mermaid stamp set at Gina K's store.  As I said in a previous post, I lost my mind in her store.  There is nothing like going to a store and holding supplies in your hand.


Mermaids seem to be in style these days.  I have seen several stamp sets recently.  The one thing I have noticed is that their hair is always perfect.  Seriously, I go swimming and I come out of the water and my hair looks like a drowned rat.  I do have to say that I was blessed with great hair; but nothing like  mermaid's hair.

For my cards today,  i created the same scene but had a different background.  For one, I used the Gina K Waterdrop Stencil with a combination of glitter pastes to create an ombre look.  For the other I just used a couple of Gina K Dye inks and did some ink blending.


Now for the fun part.  We do have a giveaway.  All you have to do is leave a comment on every blog post along the way for your chance to win your choice of an original or mini MISTI, as well as the Stitched Leaves mini kit from Gina K.

The deadline for commenting is noon central standard time on September 5th.  Winners will be posted on the My Sweet Petunia Giveaway Winners page and Gina K Blog on Friday, September 8th.


The video for these cards is a bit long and I hope that you watch it all the way through.  Thanks for stopping by!  Don't forget to leave a comment here on the blog and also hit the like button and subscribe to my YouTube Channel to see more videos.

  2. I love the design. I have to say, all my girls are mermaids, Eric...I mean swimmers, and they all have beautiful hair (especially Vicky). It's the mastering of the messy bun that gets them mermaidish

  78. Thanks for the tip of toning down the white paper with a lighter color of ink, and that stencil is lovely. I never thought to restamp a colored image so it is more crisp of an outline. I've finished the hop, leaving you for last, and I must say this hop was FAN-TAS-TIC. Thank you.
