Gina K Designs Inspirational Blog Hop day one

 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!!




The Design Team for Gina K. Designs welcomes you to another fabulous Inspiration Blog Hop!!! Gina and the Design Team will inspire you with many beautiful ideas! And as you hop through their blogs, make sure to leave a comment on each of them because we will choose a few random comments and those stampers will each win a grab bag of deeply etched, pre-cut Gina K. Designs stamps! To see the full list of winners check the Big News forum at Stamp TV a couple of days after the hops!!



 I am pretty excited about this card- mostly because I plan on actually sending it from Hawaii! ;)  Perfect timing that Melanie shared the Hawaiian flower- we have a secret family vacation planned there very soon!  (kids don't know yet!) This set is the new Stately Flowers 4 from Melanie- I used the LF-001 Spellbinders Creative Book pages for my card base, and embossed the front with the EL-004 Imperial M-Bossabilites.
I stamped the both sizes of the flower onto the white layer, and then stamped the sentiment.  
aloha!

 The next one is one of my new fave sets, Ticket Trio from Tami.  I just love that little cupcake image!  This set has so many great little image and sayings, I had a hard time putting it down! 




and the best part- you can now choose between Gina's awesome red rubber, or HI QUALITY Photopolymer clear stamps!


Check out all the amazing designs and inspiration:

Paulette S said...

What a great idea with the Hawaii card. Makes me wonder about the postage. LOL but you're saving money by making your own card. I like that you used the cupcake image your own way with a die cut. So cute, so simple. I'm hoping to be inspired in a simple way, with the Less is more attitude. I seem to fill my card fronts.
