Gina K Designs February Release Inspiration DT Hop, Day 1!!

Hey y'all!! Welcome to this month's Inspiration Hop!!



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.

Today we have 2 brand spanking new stamp sets to showcase for you. Up first is Tami Mayberry's newest set called All Occasion Tags 2...I loved the first one and love this one too! This is what I did for today with it:



I love this tag set, it adds such a fun touch to a simple card. I added a bit more on this card, but to me, the tag would have been just fine on it by itself, without all the foo-foo I added! But I wanted to add a bit more to it this time so hopefully it will help the recipient 'get well soon'! :D

Up next is Melanie Muenchinger's newest set called A Year of Flowers 2...yep, Mel finally did a sequel! This are such fun sketchy flowers! Here is my card for today with this set:



I decided to do a bit of watercoloring. I used some Twinkling H20s on this...IRL, it sure sparkles! Then I just fussy cut the rose out and attached to my card design. I really like how this turned out, just wish I could have captured the sparkle for ya! And remember, you do not have to be a 'colorer' to get this set...Mel does an awesome video on her blog (link is below to Mel's blog) showing you how to quickly and easily color these flowers!

Ok, ready for more awesome eye candy? Here ya go, links to my fellow DT:


Thanks so much for stopping by today!! We have two more days of hops for you to join us in, hope to see you back for those too!!

And thanks so much for the wonderful words of encouragement about my reject!! I never know what the magazines want...sometimes they love me and sometimes they dont, lol! Its all part of this wonderful little hobby of ours! I do this mainly because I enjoy and love doing what I do....if a card I make just happens to get picked, well, that's like icing on the cake...or maybe the Ice cream!??!! LOL!
