Good morning!  Please enjoy more Monday inspiration from a few members of the Gina K. Designs team!  We are sharing more ideas for some past favorite seasonal and all occasion stamp sets.  Beth Silaika also created a video for you, so be sure to leave her some love!  Please enjoy this mini hop!

Thank you in advance for all your feedback and comments, we really enjoy designing for you!  Hope your week is off to a fabulous start!


Up first today I have Beth Silaika's set, Fleur de Lis

Fleur di Lis

For this card, I stamped one of the fleur di lis images onto a piece of round cork that I had applied distress stains to.  Then just did some color blocking for my card and added some twine and a cardboard butterfly and all done!  :D  The fleur di lis images in this set are so awesome!  And timeless too it seems....this is one image that is still popular! 
 
  Next is a set by Debbie Corbari, her
Let's Talk set

For this card I made a file folder card:

The sides of this are closed off, so you 'open' this card by removing the insert I added.  Here is a picture of it pulled out:




This is such a fun set to have!  You can share quick little pick me up notes to all your girl/boyfriends! 

Ok, thats all from me for today!  I hope you are enjoying our little mini hops we are having for y'all!  I know we enjoy doing them!

The file folder card is so cute! Sometimes I forget to go to my stashes (or I can't get to them bc it is too messy in my studio) -- love the cork look! I have a bag of cork (again - messy office!
