Gina K Design May Release Inspiration Hop Day 1!!

Hey Ya'll!! Welcome to our first day of inspirational hops for you! We will have one today, then with the Memorial Day holiday weekend here in the USA, we will resume with our hops on Tuesday instead of Monday! And did you make it to the party last night? It was a blast, and so many fun videos posted by Gina!! Be sure and check them out on StampTV!!

Ok, for today, we have two stamps set to get your creative juices flowing, hopefully! Up first is a set by Theresa Momber called Vogue Vases...this is what I have done with it for today:



You cant tell it, but I used some crystal effects on the blue vase too. This also uses the next set that is up, one by Melanie Muenchinger called Border Bling!! (the oval bling around the sentiment!) I made this card using just stamps from this set:



This is one of those that looks so much better IRL! It really does twinkle! I spritz the whole thing with some shimmer spritz and used a stardust glitter pen on the little stars. So you see, you can use this set even by itself!

Ready for more inspiration? Dont forget too to leave comments on all the blogs, because Gina will be picking two winners to win these sets!! Here is our link list:
