Gina K Designs inspirational hop day one

Welcome, Welcome!  Today I am sharing a few cards 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 Melanies Stately Flowers 3 set.   I like to use the stamps to make backgrounds- here, I randomly used the flower all over the top 2/3 of the card.  I ran the bottom piece through an M-Bossibilities folder AFTER stamping the sentiment.   I finished it off with a few gems from Want2Scrap.

My second card for today uses Mehndi Wishes from Rupa.  I have always loved those pretty henna tattoos that women get all over their hands, this one realllly reminds of them.  The Gandhi sentiment is one of my favorites!

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