Gina K Design September Inspiration Hop, Day 3!!

Hey Y'all!! Welcome to our last day for the Inspiration Hop, but not of inspiration! :D



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 Gina K. Designs Grab Bag that could have anything from stamps to paper to embellishments! To see the list of winners check the Big News forum at Stamp TV a couple of days after the hops!!

We have two sets today to showcase for you. Both illustrated by Gina herself. First one up is Primitive Blessings and here is what I have done for today with this set:


I am so loving this set! It reminds me of my cross-stitching days, I was all into the Primitive/Americana stuffs! I have so many I need to get framed! But I did this card trying to capture the overall style of that. Distressed the edges a bit and used rich colors. Here is a 2nd card I made too with the same set:


Again, going with the Primitive/Americana style you see alot of out there. Very quick card, basically just stamped the heifers 2 times so I could cut them out and give them dimension! Wouldn't this make an awesome invite to a dinner for someone?

Ok, next up is a set I can see on ALOT of presents! It's the new One Free with Three called Seasonal Labels :D I decided to make a boxed card set. Here it is:


This is a picture of the cards in the box, and here are the cards:


Well, three of the cards. I made two of each color and the sentiment varies on each one, but all are from this set. My sister or daughter one will probably swipe these from me, lol!

Ok, ready for more awesome inspiration? Here ya go:
