Gina K Designs Inspirational hop Day 3




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.

Happy Hump DAY!  (My family all LOVES that camel commercial where he runs around asking what day it is, and it's the silliest of commercials, but it makes us all giggle!!)

  My first card today uses Becky's new awesomely-fabulous set, Beautiful Banners.  I am IN LOVE with the woodgrain image!  It's so amazingly-awesome and easy to line up to create backgrounds.  And the mix and match banners are so clever!

My second card uses one of Debbie's new Darling Divas set Aloha Diva.  I love the Hibiscus flowers in it- (I need it in a LARGE size in case any one is listening!! ;)


make sure to check out the others today as well!

Cute cards today! I really like the woodgrain one! For some reason I have a tough time coming up with masculine cards and I think this stamp would be great on cards for guys or gals!

I am always wondering how I will use the "go-with" pieces of a stamp set, you know, the additional designs that aren't the main image. I love what you did with the hibiscus from the Aloha Diva set (one that I am determined to have in my collection, BTW!).

Ravengirl said...

I think these are darling! I like that camel commercial too!
