Gina K Design August Release Inspiration Blog Hop! Day 3!!

Hey ya'll! Welcome back to our last day of the Inspiration Hops! I hope in some small way we have inspired you, that is why I love doing this so much! We have two more stamp sets to show you today. Up first is the newest set by Tami Mayberry called Gnome One Like You...this set is just too stinking cute! I love the pun sayings in this set, they crack me up!! Here is what I have for today to show you:



I made a masculine card this time! Isnt that little frog the cutest...and the saying...haha! LOVE it!

Up next is the newest One Free With Three stamp set called Various Verses...and this is one of those sets that is going to be so super handy to me! You can make really quick cards for those times you need them. Here is what I did for today:



I embossed the image panel with clear embossing powder, then stamp the image with versamark onto that. Then I used some Tim Holtz distress embossing powder and heat embossed it. It makes the image look embedded into the panel. This was a tutorial I saw over on SCS for this and so decided to try it. I really love how it turned out...the image kinda blurs on the edges, making it look like its painted to me!

Ok, ready for more awesome inspiration? Here are the links to my fellow DT. And as always, be sure to leave a comment on all blogs for your chance to win a free stamp set!! Two will be chosen!!
