Hey Ya'll!! Welcome back once again to more inspiration for you! Again today we have three stamps sets we want to show and inspire you with! And remember, all these sets are now available at Gina K Designs!! you can find them in the What's New Section !!

Up first tonight we have a new set by *Tami Mayberry called Perfect Pennants, and these coordinate with Spellbinders Nested Pennant and Nested Scallop Pennant dies too!...well, I did something a bit differnt with them! Here is my creation with this set:


I kept seeing Christmas trees! So I have a VERY early start on my Christmas cards for this year, lol!

Up next is a new set by Rupa called Cute As A Bug...this set is just adorable! There is what I have made with it for today:



Isnt that bee just the cutest?! I made her little wings out of tissue paper too and layered them, looks really good IRL! The yellow layer is cut from felt, and I also used Melanie's newest set Bring the Bling on this also, added some perfect touches I think!

And last but not least is *Nina Brackett's newest set called Lovely Labels 3 which will coordinate with Spellbinders Label dies 18, 20, and 21!! Here is my creation with this set for today:



This is a CAS creation, just did a bit of scoring to match the image and the DP I used, Love how this turned out!
