Gina K Designs July Releasae DT Inspiration Hop -- Day 1!

Hey y'all!! Welcome to our 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 StampTV a few days after the hops!

Up first today is Melanie Muenchinger's newest set called Stately Flowers 7, another awesome addition to this collection! I so love all of these state flower stamps! Here is a card I showed at the party the other night:



I just used the sentiment and butterfly stamps on this card. I wanted to show that you do not have to be one that has those awesome coloring skills for flowers to enjoy this set! Melanie even made such an awesome card with the flowers and NO coloring! So do not feel intimidated by these stamps, thinking that you need to be able to color, you dont! :D

Up next is Tami Mayberry's newest set called Simple Numbers. This is another 'simple' but awesome concept for a stamp set by Tami!! Here is what I did with it:



Im all ready for my daughter's birthday in November! :D She loves red, so that is why everyone of the cards I make for her birthday are red, lol! And yep, she's the big 30 this year...I definitely will be rubbing that in to her, haha!

Ok, one last card that I made today, or rather yesterday, and with this one, I combined Mel's, Tami's and the new free stamp you can get when you spend $25.00!! Here it is:



I used the flowers from Mel's set, and embossed them in gold. I used the numbers and sentiment (The Big, and 'th') from Tami's set and then the free stamp 'Congratulations', and made an 50th anniversary card! I used gold and silver cardstock too, it looks awesome IRL! I did some 'fussy' cutting on some of the flowers to pop them up...(this is my challenge today over on StampTV!! Come Play along with us!) My SIL's parents are celebrating their 50th this September and this card is for them. :D

Ok, ready for more wonderful eye candy? Here ya go!! Just follow these links to my fellow DT!


Thanks so much for stopping by today! Be sure to come back tomorrow for another awesome day of wonderful inspiration for you!!

OH these are fabulous! I love that red birthday card (wish I was turning 30 again!), the months stamped in the background on the kraft are eye catching. Your anniversary card is beautiful too, wish I'd done something like that last year for my parents' big 5-0.
