Gina K Design Inspiration Blog Hop for July Release (yes, in August!) Day 2!!



Hey y'all!! Welcome back to our 2nd day of some awesome inspiration for you!!



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 one of our newest illustrators, Beth Silaika's newest set called Stippled Nature Here is what I have done for today:



And the inside:



Notice the apple has fallen out of the tree, lol! This set is so easy and fun to work with! I have one more to show you too:



I've been on a yellow kick lately it seems! I stamped the image and then did some paper piercing around it to just add a little more interest! Love how this turned out, and it was a really quick one!

Up next is our other new illustrator, Becky Oehlers's newest set called, American Made...oh and I so love that sunray stamp in this set! Here is what I have done for today:



Those sun rays just add that little extra emphasis...for lack of better word at the moment, lol! Another super quick creation for me, and I so love that at times, lol!

Ok, next up is the last set for the day that we are showcasing. This one is by Tami Mayberry and is called Lighthearted Wishes...O.m.geee!! The little lamp stamps in this set are just too adorable! This is what I have done for today with it:



(there some yellow again!) I also used those sun rays back behind the lamp too, perfect dont ya think?! I was going for a kinda whimsical feel with this card, with the polkadots. I did a bit of sponging also to tone it down a bit.

Ok, ready for more awesome eye candy? Here are the links to my fellow DT crew and also, Beth and Becky and Tami will have links on their site to their own DT that will be showcasing their stamps for them too! So get ready!!



Thanks again for stopping by today! I so enjoy all of your comments, and yes, I do read them ALL! The make me smile! :D and makes it all worthwhile! Be sure and come on back tomorrow, we have two more sets to showcase for one, one being the new awesome StampTV kit! yay!
