Gina K Designs January Release Inspiration DT Blog Hop, Day 2!!

Hey y'all!! Welcome back and if first time, glad ya here! :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 grab bag of Gina K. Designs products! To see the full list of winners check the Big News forum at Stamp TV a few days after the hops.

Again today we have 3 brand spanking new sets to show ya! Up first is Theresa Momber's newest set called Birds and Blossoms ... and in true Theresa style, so very realistic! Here is my card for today:


I HAD to color that gorgeous little bluebird in this set. We have a couple of them in the spring here, such a gorgeous vibrant blue! So I tried to capture that in these images. I used copics to color them with and think they turned out pretty close to the real ones! I hope to be able to get their pic this year! LOL!

Up next is Becky Oehlers's newest set called, Spoon Me! Omg, such a FUN set! Here is what I did for today with it:


I made a long skinny card (bowling lanes) and then the pins to look like they have been 'Bowled Over' LOL! Super quick one too! Oh so much fun gonna come out of this set! :D

Up last but not least is Tami Mayberry's Newest set called, Simple Hearts. They might be called 'simple' but you can do some amazing and fun things with them! Here is what I have done:


I did a bit of shabby/chic on mine for today. Used some burlap, and distress crackle paint in white...add some tickets and punched out sentiments from the set and then the pin, and ta-da! LOL!

Ready for more awesome eye candy? Here ya go!



Thanks so much for stopping by today! I truly LOVe reading your comments! Be sure and come on back by tomorrow 'cause we have one more day of hops for ya!

The card with the bird is fabulous. I love how you have the flowers outside the frame and how the bird is colored. Everything on the card, including the ribbon, looks beautiful together. Is the ribbon from Gina's store and what is the color? Periwinkle? All the cards using the bowling pin makes me laugh. You ladies have all come up with unique ideas for that set.

Diana Evensen said...

Wow! Three VERY different looks/styles. All of them are great. Love the bowling pins.
