Gina K Designs Inspirational hop Day 2




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 StampTV a few days after the hops.



My first card uses Up & Away from Theresa.  I free handed cut the green hillside, and then mounted with Crafty Foam Tape to my card base.   I really like the hot air balloons and the fact that the design inside them allows for paper piecing!  I stamped each one onto different patterned papers and then popped them up with 3D Foam Squares.


My next card uses Beth's new fun alphabet stamp set, Lots of Dots.  There's lots of fun little label designs in this set- I used one to create my pattern, alternating the direction I stamped it in each time.  I spelled out Hello onto a die cut and popped it up with 3D Foam Squares.

Make sure to check out the others!








enjoy!
