Gina K Design March Release Inspiration Blog Hop! Day 1

Hey Ya'll! Welcome to our first day of our Inspiration Blog Hop this month! Did you make it to the Release Party last night? It was a super fast moving one with some wonderful videos by Gina, which are still up and viewable! And now we have two stamps sets we are showcasing for you today. Up first I have Celebrate In Style. This is a special set set for StampTV's 2nd anniversary! This stamp set is free with any purchase over $35 for the entire month! Here is my creation with it:



I did some paper piecing on the dress and a cut away card. The little insert on this pic is of the inside of the card. Click HERE to be taken to the What's New section at Gina K Designs to purchase!

Up next we have the One Free with Three stamp set called Stenciled Silhouettes. Here is my creation for this set:



This is stamped on some sticky back canvas. I was going for a folk art look, how it looks on old weathered wood, lol! This stamp set and all released last night are available for purchase now! Isnt that awesome!?

And did I mention there is a new cardstock color??? Wild Lilac...It's GORgeous!!!
