We are showcasing Gina K Designs Products this week. If you have any of these products, we’d love to see them used, but it’s certainly not a requirement to join the challenge.

I’ve linked all of the supplies that I used at the end of this post. Compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.
I went for a simple card this week. There’s just something I love about cards with minimal supplies. I don’t know that I would consider this a CAS card, but it definitely covers the simple aspect.
I used Diagonal Stripes cling rubber background stamp by Simon Says Stamp to create this fun rainbow background. Using my Misti made this process super easy!! I also used the Creative Corners Positioning Pieces so that I could realign my card stock in case it shifted. All of the inks I used are from Simon Says Stamp, starting off with Tiny Bikini then moving on to Melon, Jellybean, Spring Rain and ending with Hot Mama. I just love the names of these die inks. Once my background was complete, I cut it down to 4″x5.25″.
I cut this really cool rectangle shape using Stacked Deckle by Tim Holtz and Sizzix. I really like this die. I didn’t have any rectangles with an interesting edge like this so I was excited to add this set to my die collection.
I used the Hugs die by Gina K Designs for my sentiment. Using Neenah 110 lb. card stock, I cut it out 3 times and layered them together to add some dimension. I also used a scrap piece of craft foam behind the rectangle frame to add even more dimension.
I went over the word, hugs with a Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Pen then glued it to the gray center piece. I added a few Metallic Silver Jewels by Pretty Pink Posh to finish off my card, but at the last minute I decided to go over the word “Hugs” with some Nuvo Crystal Glaze. Now my card was complete.
So now it’s YOUR turn. Happy Crafting!!
