Gina K Designs February Release Inspiration DT Hop, Day 2!!

Hey y'all!! Welcome to day 2 of our hops for this month!



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 two stamp sets to show case for you! Up first is Theresa Momber's newest set called The Northwoods. I decided to make a masculine card...so many of us struggle with that! I was going for a wood burning look...well, here it is:



That oval is a piece of thin wood. I stamped with distress ink and heat embossed it also. Then I played around adding some inks with water brush...eh...its OK, lol! My hubby liked it! :D

Ok, nest is Becky Oehlers' newest set called, Poster Board Sentiments...and I showed a couple of cards from a set that I have made using premade cards, but adding dp and stamps to dress them up. Here are a couple more cards from that set I have made:





I love how these turned out! I have a cousin in Alabama this is the birthday fairy...she sends just about everybody in our whole family a birthday card every year and she also does this for her community and church. Sooo I'm making a bunch of these up to send to her and this stamp set has really made that a breeze!! LOVE how easy it is to use this set to make these quick birthday cards!

Ok, ready for more awesome eye candy? Here ya go:



Thanks again for stopping by! I so love getting and reading all of your comments!! You make my day!! :D Come on back by tomorrow, got one more day of our hop for ya!
