Gina K Designs March Release Inspiration Hop, Day 4!!


Hey ya'll!! Welcome to our 4th and final day for this release's Inspiration Hops!

The Design Team for Gina K. Designs welcomes you to another fabulous Inspiration Blog Hop!!! Gina and the Design Team will inspire you with many beautiful ideas! And as you hop through their blogs, make sure to leave a comment on each of them because we will choose a few random comments and those stampers will each win a grab bag of deeply etched, pre-cut Gina K. Designs stamps! To see the full list of winners check the Big News Forum at StampTV a couple of days after the hops!!

We have two stamp sets once again to showcase today for you. Up first is the newest 'One Free With Three' set called Great Sayings...Here is my sample, actually two, with this set:





Both of these cards use the same stamp from the set, and same supplies...one just a bit more on it I guess than the other. This was also for the CAS challenge over on SCS this week that I was a guest designer for, white with shades of blue...I believe these fit the bill...just that 2nd one kinda pushes the CAS design to the limit, LOL!

And next up is the 3 year Anniversary Duo Stamp set, (OMG!! I can't believe its been THREE years with StampTV!!) that you can get free with a 35.00 purchase, through the end of this month! It is called Believe In Yourself...



I spruced up this little box set of cards I got at HL on clearance! I LOVE how this turned out and it will make a cute little gift for this young girl I know! Here is another picture of it with the box lid open and the matching envelope:



All I did was stamp the butterfly onto some pink cardstock and used some glitter pens and white gel pen on it! What took the longest was all of the die cutting for all of the little cards, 20 total! LOL! My shoulder reminded me that it didnt like that activity too much, (I have a partially torn rotator cuff that I need to have surgery on...bleh....LOL! Putting THAT off as long as I can!)

Check out all the amazing designs and inspiration:



Ok! Thanks so much for all of the wonderful comments and stopping by this week for our hops! I so appreciate every single one I get! Be sure and come back and see me though, dont be a stranger! :D

Michelle,
I am in love with your first two cards; the beautiful color, the sentiment, and the tape(?) On the second card is just dreamy! Your bright blue card sets are bold and brings to life the butterfly. Wonderful designs, and I love your style.

Janice said...

Stephanie Hallitron said...

Cathy, I love your first two card designs; the blues you chose are wonderful and soft; bringing the sentiment front and center. AMD the tape(?) idea on the second card is a very cool layout. Your bright card boxes are bright and snazzy, bringing the butterfly to life. I love your style!

Scrapacat said...

Your shoulder and mine are in agreement! I love the tape work on the first 2 cards. So stunning! Yeah, that card set will be great for a teen girl. Hopefully it will encourage someone to keep up the tradition of written letters!
