Gina K Design May Design Team Hop: Patterened Paper is Sew Fun!

Hey ya'll!! Welcome to our monthly hop for Gina K Designs!


The Design Team for Gina K. Designs welcomes you to a Patterned Papers are Sew Fun blog hop. For this hop we will showcase the fabulous Gina K. Designs Patterned Paper line, stamps, and some fun sewing techniques! The DT Members have all used the wide variety of stamps and paper in this hop to inspire you to get inky too!! Come play along with the Current Challenges at Stamp TV!!!



If you came from Carolina Buchting's Awesome 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 with this theme:


I used a sheet of dp from the Sunshiny Day paper pack. As most know, I do struggle with using dp...I have gotten better...I think, lol, but it is still a struggle for me! I love how these papers do all the matching for me though...its awesome to have that option! I stamped the flowers in versamark ink, from the One in a Million set...which is the one free with three for about another week...then heat embossed them in white. I colored these with Distress markers and then went around the edges of the flowers to make them pop a bit. My sewing that I did on the card? Can you spy it? It's some little x's in each corner! I call them accents, lol! Since we moved over a year ago, I havent been able to find the foot pedal to my sewing machine...guess I better just break down and buy another! I do love how machine sewing looks on a card!

Now hop on over to "Deb Felt's most excellent Blog! blog for more Gina K. goodness!!!



Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you enjoy a little hop...it's kinda short one today actually...but packed with awesome eye candy! And don't forget our release next week...one week from today....LOTS of exciting things coming up in the near future with Gina K! It's clearly gonna be a fun and exciting time for all! :D
