Gina K Design Inspiration hop for June Release, Day 1!

Hey y'all!! I am so excited to be sharing some inspiration, hopefully, lol, with you for this last release!


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 is Melanie Muenchinger's newest set called Pretty Patterns...oh my word....!!! Does this set have the possibilities or what!?! AND now that Gina K Designs is offered in clear...well, Im in heaven!! So very easy to line up these awesome patterns and you dont have to use one of them darn stampamajiggies! haha! Here is what I have done for today:


I used the chevron pattern that is in the set. And for that bottom edge, I just followed the pattern to get that edge like that, fun stuffs! Quick and fun thank you card done in no time at all! love that!

Up next is Tami Mayberry's newest set called Grand Tags and this set of Tami's also coordinates with Spellbinder's Labels 22, I always love sets that coordinate like that! :D Here is what I have done today:


I just stamped the image in black, and then only added a pop of one color, and I made the card a square card, 4 1/2 x 4 1/2. That's some of that tissue paper by Tim Holtz over a piece of colored cardstock. Kinda tones down the color a bit. (I have a hard time with brights, lol!)

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


I hope you are enjoying our inspiration hop for you today! We will be back, same time and place for another day of inspiration for you tomorrow and on Wednesday too, so come on back now ya here? :D

Love both cards, but the thank you card is so unusual and right for the men in your life. I know what you mean about the stampamajiggies! I thought I had to have one and I have never used it. Seems like so much trouble to me.
