Gina K Designs July Releasae DT Inspiration Hop -- Day 3!!

Hey y'all!! Welcome to our last day of hops for this 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 on StampTV a few days after the hops!

Up first today I have Becky Oehlers' newest set, Beautiful Banners. Here is my card for today with this set:



I used the 'congratulations' stamp and made a card for a new home owner, thus the little wooden house in the corner! :D Besides the awesome banners like this one, this set also has a wonderful woodgrain stamp in it. I showed this card at the release party:



I saw a tree carved so I used some SB dies for the words to try to give it an engraved look. :D But see that awesome woodgrain? how fun is that?!

Up next is Debbie Corbari's Darling Divas...and this time we have Aloha Diva, Impressed Diva and Marathon Diva. For my card today, I used one of the sentiments from the Impressed Diva:



I have a couple of priceless friends that will listen to me and give me some good advice at times when I need it...cooler heads prevail and such, haha! So this card was made with them in mind! I did some folds with the dp, to make it look like it had been 'ironed' LOL! Here also is a card I showed at the release party, using Marathon Diva:



The sign below her bounces too! I call her my wobbly runner...because that would be me if I was to run...WOBBLY! LOL!

Ok, ready for more wonderful creations to ogle at? Here ya go!! Just follow these links to my fellow ohsotalented DT!
