Gina K Designs Inspirational Hop Day one



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 Gina K. Designs products! To see the full list of winners check
the Big News forum at Stamp TV a few days after the hops.

 My first card uses Becky's new set Bold Blooms- I just love the pattern that makes up the flower!  I used an old sketch and loved how the flower was offset in the corner (and backed with the Turquoise Sea card stock)  for my starting point.  The sentiment is stamped in the new Black Onyx Color Companion inks and comes from Assorted Greetings set.

For my next card, I used Melanie's Pretty Patterns 2.  This border image is such a fun one to create with.  I kept it simple using the new Turquoise Sea ink on Kraft cardstock, and paired it with the sentiment from Tami's set Simple Flowers.


Check out all the amazing designs and inspiration:


enjoy!
