GIna K Designs inspirational hop day one


 Welcome!
Today I have several cards more to share from Gina K’s newest release.  Be sure to catch all the other samples from the Design Team today  –  Make sure to check them all out on the All New page!!
 Also- make sure to check out Gina's newest team member- Jimmi!!!

First up is a basic themed card using the Timeless Textures set.   I added 'Celebrate' sentiment from Tami's last release of Perfect Pennants, and figured it could be a guy card for a birthday, kids birthday/school graduation, or add something to it if I needed.  It's nice to have extra cards on hand sometimes!


And here's my sneaky peek from yesterday's post using Garden Silhouettes (One free with 3).   Love the springy colors here- now if only spring would show up here in Washington!

   I used both sets here- I don't do a lot of techniquey-styled stamping, but thought I would give the ol' kissing technique another try- I stamped the dotted background onto the flowers.  I like how it adds a little texture to them.  I also stamped the dotted texture in orange and linen texture in yellow onto the white strip to layer.  Remember years ago when everyone was putting 3 and 4 background images onto a card?  ;)

 thanks for stopping by!!

Make sure to check out the rest of the team today as well!!

I enjoyed looking at all of your cards. Love the texture stamp set and can see so many possibilities. I have to admit my favorite card is the kissing technique. The bright colors drew my attention ~ I'm from Oregon and we haven't seen much sunshine either, so I could use a bright and cheery card like yours!
