My Birthday Surprise!

202

Hello!

Last Friday was my birthday and I got the greatest gift of all! Rina came home! And she surprised me with balloons and this beautiful card. I have to say that EVERYONE around me can REALLY keep a secret! I had no idea.

Today, Rina has a new video up where she shows you how to make this beautiful card and she also included a clip from when she surprised me. 🙂

You can watch her video here.

 

Here are some of the products she used in her video and most can be found in our store.

Stamp set- Today and Always

Ink Cubes- Tranquil Teal, Sea Glass, JellyBean Green, Jet Black Amalgam

Card stock- Sea Glass, Black Onyx, White

Dies- Large Rectangles, Fancy Tags

Gina K. Designs Adhesive Dot Runner, Mark Richards Embellishments, Foam Squares

Today, we are under a winter storm warning. It’s still snowing and we already have nine inches on the ground from overnight. We decided to keep our staff safe and not open today. This does set back shipping an extra day and customer service will not be available until tomorrow, however, we don’t want to risk anyone’s life! Even snow plows are getting stuck and there are car accidents everywhere. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and we sure do appreciate your patience.

Enjoy today’s inspiration and Happy Stamping!
Hugs,

Gina K.

    I really hate to tell you but it’s 83 degrees here today in Sarasota FL. I know your pain living in the cold. We moved from Michigan to Florida 2 years ago after my husband and I retired.

    Tuesday, February 12, 2019

    Rina, I ABSOLUTELY love your videos! I adore your Mom and you absolutely do her proud!!! James is so great too and you… there are not enough stars in the sky to describe how awesome you are. Okay, now that your head is as big as the ‘wreath-builder’ balloon, let me tell you how cold it is here in Pembroke, Ontario (Canada) minus 20 Celsius. That’s like 4 below 0 for you in Fahrenheit. The kicker: were expecting over a foot of snow and killer winds! Plus, I’m on my way to the dentist aaagh!!! Loved your card, I NEED that stamp set. Thanks for making us laugh and inspiring us with your fun videos! Your pal from the Great White North, Didi ❤️

    Rina wanted to know about the weather. It is currently 35* here with freezing rain. I work at a school and although it is not nice enough for the staff and students to attend – we secretaries must come in and let me tell you…it was treacherous!!! The only good thing is that we are allowed to leave 2 hours early. We feel like we are having a heat wave as it was -8* just about a week and a half ago and then almost 60. But we live where the groundhog predicts the weather so we must endure whatever he predicts. Beautiful card by the way. Love the colors!!! And mom sure looked surprised! Love it!!!

  26. Sheila

    Tuesday, February 12, 2019

    I love your videos. They make me smile. It is 57 right now where I am–Nashville, TN. I don’t envy your cold weather at all. Stay warm and keep crafting. !

    Rina,
    Your card to your terrific mom is beautiful. I love how you used that new stamp set and turquoise is my favorite color. My temps here in Idaho are 28 to 32 degrees.

  31. Diane Hanson

    Tuesday, February 12, 2019

    Wow! Very, very cold this past weekend — minus 28 degrees! Went to my niece’s wedding and thank goodness everything happened at the hotel…smart niece! Love to use the Gina K products in any kind of weather, however!

    Tuesday, February 12, 2019

    It is 26.7 degrees in Shakopee, MN, and I am wearing silk underwear under two fleece tops. You need silk undies to wear while INSIDE to stop feeling cold.

    Keep up the honest stamping imperfection videos and sarcastic humor (essential survival skills for winter gloom).

    My husband mistakenly cut our cat’s tail while attempting her butt trim, resulting in a $600 vet bill. Hope your pet holds still while you attempt the next one! 🙂

    Tuesday, February 12, 2019

    What a beautiful card and great surprise for your mom… I live in NY about 50 mi north of NYC and right now it is 19 out and snowing like crazy… expecting alot of ice later today but the temp is like a heat wave considering that one day last week it was 1 out.. freezing.. Thank you for sharing this beautiful card with us.

    Tuesday, February 12, 2019

    Rina, you make me laugh out loud! You and your mother also share a relationship similar to what my mother and I had. I miss her terribly, she’s been gone almost 7 years and it seems like yesterday. Anyway not to be maudlin, because I know that would be appropriate, just wanted to mention what a blessing it is to see a mother and daughter team as cute as you two are! So I live in New Hampshire, we are expecting 8 to 12 inches of snow today, and right now it is 21°. Hope you have a great day and keep screwing stuff up Rina, because it makes some of us feel much better about ourselves and our crafting! LOL

  38. Harriet Clark

    Tuesday, February 12, 2019

    I am new to Gina k designs. I want to let you know how impressive your operation is. I ordered my very first Gina k products on Super Bowl Sunday and received it the following Wednesday!! I had been enjoying the wreath builder set. And it is true what Gina said about addicting it is.
    Rina, you are a hoot!! Love your videos. And what a treat for your mom surprising her on her birthday. Beautiful card, by the way.

California and the weather flutuates today was 68 at night 50. Other days 50s . This is coldest winter we have ever had in a long time.

    Yesterday it was 27 degrees, and today it is 26 in Greendale, not too far from Gina’s store. And…my Corgi doesn’t like having difficulty finding places to do her business in the deep snow. But…she sure likes to play Frisbee in it! Happy Birthday, Gina!

    Wednesday, February 13, 2019

    Happy Birthday Gina! I love the card!

    Loved Rina’s video! She is a hoot! Its 9:00pm & 18 degrees here in Coon Rapids, Minnesota. Sure beats that negative 29 degrees we had last week! It’s been a brutal winter! Making cards is keeping me sane.

    Friday, February 15, 2019

    Great card, Rina! It’s 55 degrees on the High Desert today, but the wind makes it feel colder. But, I don’t care because I’m spending the day in my rubber room!! The blue thingie I gave you (at the Islands wreath class) is called a Floss Threader. They are actually an oral health product, but we crafters are always finding crafty uses for non-craft things, right?

  198. Linda Pahuski
