Gina K Designs Spring Has Sprung DT Inspiration Hop!

Hey ya'll!! Welcome to our March DT hop!



The Design Team for Gina K. Designs welcomes you to a fun Spring Has Sprung blog hop. For this hop we will showcase Spring cards or projects with you!!! The DT Members have all used a wide variety of Gina K. Designs stamp sets to inspire you to get inky too! Come play along with the Current Challenges at Stamp TV!!!

If you came from Carolina Buchting's Blog then you're right where you should be. If not, please go to Stamp TV where you will find a list of all those participating.

Here is my creation for today:


I used Melanie's newest set, Wild Flowers. I know this isn't one of the bright and springy pastel colors you normally see for Spring, but I really have a hard time with those colors, so did it my way! :D I used distress inks on this and also the sentiment is stamped into some air dry clay and after it dried, I sponged it with the distress inks too. Love how this turned out! :D

Now hop on over to Donna Baker's Blog for more Gina K. goodness!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Hope you have a wonderfully creative day! I got to make a run to Michael's today myself! :D

Cat, this is stunning! I love the distressed squares, and love what you've done with the images and the entire card.

Cat,
This is really pretty! I love these colors and you are so helping me keep my local Hobby Lobby store in business. I think that clay could be a wonderful addition to an ACT card some day. I will have to check it today when I go get my paints :) still working on the jewelry one not giving up just yet!
