Gina K Design April Release Inspiration Hop Day 2!

Hey ya'll!! Welcome to day 2 of our Inspiration Hop for this month!


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 Stamp TV a couple of days after the hops!!

Up First today Is Tami Mayberry's newest set called Vintage Notes ....what fun this stamp set is and oh the different uses for it! Here is a card I did with it:


I used the lined image in the stamp set and this set also coordinates with the Spellbinders die, 'Office Supplies' BUT, it can be used without the die of course, very easy to cut out too! This card is for a friend who has claimed to be 29 for about the last 15 years, lol! And I also used this set with my Smashbook...here is a page I did in it:


I just wrote on these and attached to the pages! See? Oh so many possibilities with scrap pages and journals!

Ok, next up is Theresa Momber's newest sweet set, Sweet Strawberries ...and yes, I do mean sweet! Makes your mouth water! :D Here is a card I made:


Those strawberries are just FUN to color! I had to put this set down, I loved coloring it so much, lol!

Ok, ready for me awesome inspiration? Here are the links to my fellow DT...don't forget to leave comments on all to increase you chance of winning an awesome grab bag of stamps from Gina K!!
