Gina K. Designs September Release Blog Hop - Day 1


Happy Monday!

It's the very first day of our September Release Blog Hop.  We are going to party on for three full days.  You will want to stop by each blog each day and leave some love.  Gina will choose a person from each day's comments and he/she will win a $50 gift card to the Gina K. shop.  That's three chances to win!

First up today is the ultra talented Melanie Muenchinger.  She is bringing us the Men of Faith stamp set.  It coordinates beautifully with her previously released Women of Faith set.  The amount of sentiments is mind blowing!  You will be stamping for days!!


I think it is so great to have a set for masculine cards now! I love simple designs, so here is my take on the set:



The next set I want to show you is called Mandala Maker which was illustrated by Rina Krupsky - the very talented and hilarious daughter of Gina K.  Once you start playing with this set, you truly won't want to stop.  Both Rina and Jennifer McGuire have done great videos using this set.  I've linked each name to her YouTube video.  And here is a look at Mandala Maker:


This is one of the cards I made with the set.  I seriously have so many more to share with you!  I incorporated our new incentive stamp set (Perfect Blend) into this card so I could share it with you as well.



 I know you have found lots of inspiration as you've journeyed through all the blogs.  But remember - there is more coming tomorrow and Wednesday!  Be sure to comment all along the blog hop stops.  You could be a $50 gift card winner by visiting and commenting on each designer's post.

  62. Fantastic use of the mandala maker. I know it's just the square stamped over and over, but the way you colored it and highlighted the overlaps turns it into something else entirely. And your ink blending on the top is marvelous. Thanks for sharing with us!
