Gina K Designs May Release Inspiration Hop -- Day 2!!


Hey y'all!! Welcome to day 2 of our Inspiration Hops for you for May Release!



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.



Up first for you today is Tami Mayberry's newest set called Simple Flowers. I also combined it with Carolyn King's new set, Stamp It Big! 2. Here is my card for today:



This was super quick to make, and I love those! :D That button with the crochet, I got that at Michael's and got lucky that it matched the Gina K Ocean Mist so good! Carolyn's set will just work with so many things too! Here is another card I made using Carolyn's set, Stamp It Big! 2:



I paper pieced the house on this one, the papers I used had that bottom border and the birdie already on it. I just cut so it would work for my card...and I punched out a scallop edge to attach where the stamp has a scallop edge. It was much easier to do that than try to cut it out with having done the paper piecing. I love the whimsical feel of this one! :D

Ok, ready for some awesome eye candy? here ya go:

Thanks for stopping by today! And come on back by tomorrow, we got another 2 sets to showcase for you! :D Thanks for all of the sweet comments, you truly make my day/week/month!! :D blog sig, yellow legal pad Card Details: Stamps: Simple Flowers by Tami Mayberry; Stamp It Big! 2 by Carolyn King both from Gina K Designs Papers: Gina K cardstocks Accessories: SB scallop border dies, lace and crochet button, SB circle dies, twine.
