Gina K Designs September Release Inspiration Blog Hop - Day 3!!

Hey y'all! Welcome to our last day of Inspiration Hops for this month!


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, Beyond Baskets 2...this set, along with the basket sets....well, your possibilities are endless! This is what I did for today:



I filled my bag with snowflakes! I also used some snowflake images from Theresa's new set, Let It Snow...I used an acetate sheet and white stayz on ink to stamp those to make an overlay for my card. Then punched out a few snowflakes and arranged them in the bag. I took a craft knife and made a small slit to add the twine like it is underneath the top of the bag. I LOVE this bag of snow! I sure hope we get some this year! :D

Up next is Rupa Shevde's new set, Christmas Joy. This is my card for today:


I did some heat embossing with silver embossing powder, and also used the fancy oval die from SB and dry embossed it around the image. Added a piece of vellum that I stamped the sentiment on over the bottom edge of the image...this will be super easy to mail too!

Ok ready for more awesome inspiration? Here ya go:


Thanks for stopping by the last few days, I so enjoy all of your comments! YOU are my inspiration! :D

I love what you did with the acetate on the first card - how inventive! And the use of the SB die for embossing/debossing instead of using the die to cut the paper is another great idea. Thanks for sharing.
