Gina K Design May Release Inspiration Hop, Day 2!

Hey y'all! Glad you made it for day two of our 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 Stamp TV a couple of days after the hops!!



Up first today we have Theresa Momber's newest set called "Under the Sea". And true to Theresa's wonderful style, these stamps are so life like! Here is one card I have made with the set:



I found Nemo! haha! I do so love that movie, so with the clown fish in the set, I HAD to paint him like Nemo...although, there are so many different colors of clown fish I found out. For the 'water and sand', I sponged that using distress inks. The fish is colored with copics. The pearls are colored with a copic marker too to match the colors. I also did this card for a challenge I hosted for the release party (due TODAY!) Here is that card:



You had to make a masculine CAS card! I love how this turned out! This set made me go out and buy the wave punch, lol!

Ok, next up is Rupa Shevde's newest set called Enjoy The Journey. Here is my card with this set:



I decided to make a little suitcase to go along with the 'theme' of the stamps! Melanie and I had the same idea with this set, lol! She is going to have a wonderful tutorial on her blog today of how she did hers. On mine, I embossed a panel with a CB folder, the added UTEE two times to give it a really glossy finish. The 'handle' of my suitcase was cut using oval nesties. I think this turned out pretty good! :D

Ok, ready for more awesome eye candy? Here ya go:



Thanks so much for stopping by this wonderful Monday morning (or whatever time it is for you, it's wonderful too! :D) We have one more day of hops left, tomorrow, and one of the 3 sets we will be showcasing is the new StampTV kit! It rocks!
