Gina K Designs October Release Inspiration Hop, Day 1!

Hey Y'all! Welcome to our first day of our Inspiration Hops! Glad you stopped by!


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 Gina K. Designs products! 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 is Melanie Muenchinger's newest set, Stately Flowers 5..I am just LOVING her State Flowers sets, are you? Here is what I have done for today with it:


I HAD to use the sunflower in the set! Big ole gorgeous thing! And it's my favorite flower too. I stamped this one with versamark onto kraft cardstock and then used clear embossing powder on it. I sponged around the edges of the cardstocks and the dps too, to give it a more rustic feel. Love the saying on this too! :D

Up next is Theresa Momber's newest set called, Vogue Vases 2. This is obviously her 2nd set in the Vogue Vases..and loving this one too! Here is mine for today with this set:


Since I had these colors out on my craft table, I just used them too for this card. I combined the set with Melanie's set, Inspiration Mosaic...I paper pieced some of the areas, and then left some without. I really loving this color scheme too! :D

That's all from me for today, but here is the link list to my fellow DT who I KNOW have some awesome eye candy for you!


Thanks for stopping by today, and dont forget, same time same place tomorrow! :D
