GIna K Designs inspirational hop day three

 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!!

 what is it about rainbows? I have been on a rain bow kick for a while now....This card uses the new "free with three" set Elegant Elements and the sentiment (and patterned paper) are from the new Stamp TV set Vintage chic.  I die cut the circles with my Standard Circles SM in various colored cardstock and stamped the circle in black on each one. 

This new set By The Sea from Theresa has some fabulous masculine styled images that are great to have this time of year!  I opted to leave my lighthouse minimally colored, ( I simply am not a fabulous colorer ;)  But I am liking the end result-
enjoy!


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

Terrific cards, they are great, everyone is doing such a great job with these stamp sets, love both cards they are great, love the colored discs in the first one, great idea, and the second that striped ribbon wows that card, and that checkered looking matted cardstock or PP what ever it is, is great looking.

Your rainbow effect works wonderfully on your first card. Your bow on your lighthouse cards reminds me of waves lapping on the shoreline.
