Gina K Design May Release Inspiration Hop Day 3!!

Hey ya'll!! Welcome to day 3 of our May Release Inspiration Hops! I sure hope you have been enjoying all the wonderful inspiration you have been seeing on all my fellow DT's blogs, they rock dont they?!! They totally inspire me too!

Up today we have two more stamp sets. Up first is By The Sea by Theresa Momber...just in time for Father's Day too! Here is what I have done for today:


I did a pretty CAS creation here...stamped the image on some tissue paper I wrinkled up first with some distress inks, and then just tore the edges. I did have a sentiment on this, but it just did not look right so took it off...I'll decide later if I will be using for my brother for Father's day or not...or just a pick me up card for a friend! This set will work both ways, thats for sure!

Up next is the newest One Free With Three set called Elegant Elements...this is a fun one to work with...sooo many possibilities! here is my card for today with it:


I decided to use one of the images in the set 3 times, as the main focal point...stamped onto kraft cardstock...love how this turned out cut out with the Spellbinders labels too!

Ready for more awesome inspiration? Here ya go!

Super cards. Just love that lighthouse. I can't wait to get my stamp sets. That free set of medallions is so awesome. Gives any type of card some real interest.
