Gina K Designs May Release Inspiration Hop -- Day 4!!

Hey y'all!! Welcome back to our 4th and final day for this month's release hops!



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 today is the new 'One Free with Three' stamp set, A Little Something. Here is what I have done for today with this set:



And here is the coaster/paperweight that is inside:



I LOVe making coasters/paper weights to give as gifts! And I found these bisque coasters at Michaels I believe it was and decided to color them up and then make a box to match. The mini pizza box fit these little coasters/paperweights just perfect! for my coasters, I used stayz on ink, but you have to stay away from the blank ink when coloring with copics or it will smear. And without thinking, I put a coat of varnish on with a brush, instead of using a spray one, and THAT make it streak a tad. Soo, my advice would be to use the spray on sealer! :D

Next up is the ever so fun mini Darling Diva sets by Debbi Corbari all from Gina K Designs. Here is my first card I made using the Mr. & Mrs. Diva set:




I went with the customary black/white with red for my bride and groom! :D I'm old fashioned like that...and yea, I cry at weddings...dont even have to know the people, I still will cry, LOL!

Here is another card I made using the Rainy Day Diva:



I did some paper piecing on her umbrella and the clouds...colored her up with copic markers Stuck a bit of bling here and there and was done! :D

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


Thanks so much for hanging out with me this week and hopping around for our blog hops! I hope that you commented to get your name entered into the drawings! I here those prize packages are pretty awesome!!

Thanks again for the sweet comments! They truly inspire me and make my day! Have a wonderfully creative week! I got a little mini album I want to show you either Friday or Saturday. LOTS of pics!
