Gina K Design September Release Inspiration Hop Day !

Hey y'all!! Welcome to our first day of the new release at Gina K Designs!


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 awesome stamp sets to show you today. Up first is Melanie Muenchinger's newest set called Beyond Baskets...Oh what fun this one is to fill with things! Here is what I did for today:


Isn't that wheelbarrow awesome!? I colored to resemble old wood, or was trying too...with the hint of green mildew? LOL! And then I stuck some numbers in it, the age of my friend. I think she will get a kick out of this, with the 'over-the-hill' undertone to it, lol! I can kid her, because I've already surpassed that age, ha!

Up next is Theresa Momber's newest set called Joyful Holiday GORgeous images in this set to get you rolling on them Christmas cards! (only about 12 more weeks!) Here is what I did for today:


For this card, I did some gold embossing, and was going for a rustic kinda look. I think this card turned out like I wanted it too! I used some gold cardstock too on it, which added to the rustic rich colors of the card to me!

Ready for more awesome eye candy? Check out all the amazing designs and inspiration of my fellow DT:
