Gina K Design May Release Inspiration Hop Day 2!!

Hi Ya'll!! Welcome to day two of our inspiration hops for this release! Today we have two stamps sets once again to inspire you with. Up first is Tami Mayberry's newest set called Dreams...I just love the quotes in this set! Here is what I did for today:



I decided to work with some metal! I stamped the saying on metal with Stayz On ink and then also made a metal flower. I love this quote, one of my favs in the set!

Up next is Rupa Shevde's newest called Birthday Bash...oh how cute is this set!! I made this card for a little girl I know that will soon be 5 years old!



I think she will just love all the bright colors on it! And the little puppy dog too!

Ready for more awesome inspiration? Here ya go!
