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 StampTV a few days after the hops.




Today we are showcasing the new Incentive Stamps- My first card uses the You Make Me Smile set. My first card here I used them in their intended flower form, and highlighted the blooms with colors to make them pop!

My second card also uses the same You Make Me Smile Set, but I used them as a fun geometric patterned instead of flowers.
My last card uses the Friendship. Family. Love set.  I have a thing for those wheat type of blooms, I just love the simplicity of them! I stamped them in a light ink, then rolled the edges very lightly in a different ink.  


Check out all the amazing designs and inspiration:

Beautiful cards. I love the geometric patterned card. I wouldn't have thought of using that stamp without the stems. Using the stamp in this way could create a great fireworks card (birthday, 4th of july). :)
