Gina K Designs February 2014 Release Inspiration Hop--Day 1!!

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


The Cast and Crew for Gina K Designs welcomes you to another fabulous Inspiration Blog Hop! Gina, along with the Cast and Crew and Guest Designers, 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 Munchinger's new set,Stately Flowers 8. There are some GORGEOUS flowers in this set...and Iris, and an Orange blossom, but for today's cards I used the moths/butterflies! Here is my first card I did:

I wanted something bright and cheerful, so used primary colors for the butterflies on the side. I added some pearl and rhinestone stickers to give it a bit of sparkle! Hoping this brightens a friends day! :D Up next is another card I created using just one of the sentiments in the set, one of my favorite Biblical Quotes actually! Here it is:

For this, just simply stamped the sentiments and cut out with a fancy die, sponge the edges on it to give it a worn look. And the rhinestone swirls...a quick tip...you dont have to keep them in the pattern they come...just do some careful clipping to do as I have done on this, for the placements of the rhinestones. :D

Up next is a new set by Bethy Silaika called, Lots of Washi. And I did a short photo tutorial of how to make your OWN washi tape, but somehow the pictures have gotten lost...somewhere! I will have to do that again and then post it later in the week for y'all! But this is what I have done today with it:

This is a one layer card! It will be very easy to mail and I think it makes a wonderfully cheerful card too! (all the snow gloom, trying to chase that away for folks! LOL!) Super simple card but very striking I think!

Ok, ready for some awesome eye candy? Just follow these links to my fellow DT and Guest Designers too!
