GIna K Designs inspirational hop day one

 Welcome!
Today I have a few cards to share from Gina K’s newest release.  Be sure to catch all the other samples from the Design Team today  –  And make sure to check out all the new stamps on the All New page!! 
 My first card uses Vogue Vases.  I love this fern- I can my self using it often- The base is Gina's yummy chocolate brown pure luxury cardstock

 My next card uses the new set Border Bling.  The ribbon and patterned paper are from the Stamp TV kit.  I love the idea of adding little bling all around your die cuts- For mine though, I used a green pigment ink.   I like that little pop of color with the black and white papers-

  thanks for stopping by!!
Make sure to check out the rest of the team today as well!!
