Gina K Designs inspirational hop day one



 Welcome!
It's been a LONG while since being able to participate in release!!
Today I have some 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!!



First up is a new set by Theresa called Strength and Hope-  I love the butterfly in this set with the ribbon in the middle- it's full of great sentiments as well.

 Another quick one using the same set, (and some super fun washi tape) I like having quick and easy note cards around to send out, especially with so many friends lending us helping hands right now!!

Last up is Melanie's Basket Additions.  This fall scene was calling to me, so I paired it up with some new basic grey.  I love fall colors!



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

That tape design really speaks to me!!

AJ, I love your design for the thank you card. It was also a terrific idea to use the basket buddy by itself. I loved that idea because it shows that you can use the set without buying the basket it that would be your choice. Thanks for all the inspiration.

The simplicity and stunning look of the card using the washi tape is great. Thanks for sharing.

Donna Phelan said...

So good to "see" you! Beautiful cards. I love how you took the basket topper and just made that the focal image, fabulous idea! I saw an interesting video on how to make your own "washi" tape. Cover the back of tissue paper with score tape, stamp on the reverse side and whala. Haven't tried it as yet, but it looked wonderful to me! (((hugs))
