Gina K Designs December Release Inspiration Hop, Day 3!!!!

Hey ya'll!! Welcome back to our last day of some inspiration, hopefully, lol! for you! For today's hop we have the brand spanking new StampTV kit called True Love !! Yep, just in time for all of your Valentine's Day creation! Besides the HUGE stamp set, the True Love Stamp TV Kit contains 24 sheets of Pure Luxury card stock, ribbon, brads and exclusive patterned paper too!! Here is what I have done for today:



I showed this card at the Release party too. I think this looks so girly and valentine-y!! Unusual for ME to make something this girly, lol! Pink is hard for me to use, unless its a sorta pale pink and I put black or brown with it, lol!

I also made this:



This is one of those hard acrylic drink cups that has a place for an insert that you can decorate. I made this for my daughter for Valentine's Day...but I forgot to put it up and she snatched it yesterday when she came down, LOL! I just stamped on some paper (used the back side of some dp that was this krafty color) and stamped the hearts and sentiment randomly all over, colored with copics and a white gel pen and rolled it and stuck it in the glass! Super easy and quick and IF she hadn't of snatched it, I was gonna fill it with yummy goodies too! :D
