Gina K Designs February Release Inspiration DT hop, Day 3!!

Hey y'all!! Welcome back to our last day for this release's hop! Hope you have been enjoying it!



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.

We have 3 sets to show case today for you! Up first today is Beth Silaika's newest set called 'Lots of Dots'...this set is a wonderful set for making dotted backgrounds or just to use as accents. But, I took a different approach! I see flowers in just about everything I guess! Here is what I did with this set for today:


I stamped the dotted circle images to represent flowers, and then made the 'stems' with other images that are in the set! How fun is this?! VERY easy to do too!

Next up is Debbie Corbari's awesome 'Darling Divas'! And again this month we have 3 brand spanking new ones. Mama-to-be-Diva, Serenity Diva, and Day At The Park Diva, which is the one I decided to use for today. Here is my card for today:



Ive made another girly card...are you surprised!? LOL! I'm gonna have to go dig out the kraft cardstock to recover from all the girly things! Must me that I'm wanting spring time...they look springy to me too! :D Especially this lovely Diva on her picnic blanket! How utterly adorable are these Divas!?!!

Up last but not least is this months new 'One Free With Three' set called Petite Borders. This set can really add such an awesome accent to your card! That is what I have done with mine:



I mainly used a designer paper line, Carta Bella's True Friend collection, and then stamped the border I chose to use as sorta framing it. To me it adds just the right touch to this super quick card!

Ok, ready for my eye candy? Here ya go!



Thanks so much for stopping by today, and for all of the days! Did you leave a comment on all the blogs? If so, you are entered to win an awesome prize package which will be announced on Stamp TV Forum on Thursday! Hope you have a wonderfully creative week!
