Gina K Designs Mini Inspiration Hop!

Hey Y'all!  The Gina K Design team thought we would do a little inspiration hop for you while we are in between release!  It's using our newest stamps.  And today, Beth is going to be giving you a chance to win her awesome 'Lots Of Washi'  stamp set!  Just leave a comment on the blog posts...the more comments you enter, the better your chance to win!  Today, I only have one card at the moment.  As I am typing this, its 2:30 AM....I had 3 cards total done and Shady Cat was a BAD bad kitty and knocked my coffee all of the table...I was able to salvage this one though...
I used Melanie Muenchinger's newest set, Triple Play Frame.  This is a super easy CAS creation, and I am tickled to have salvaged it..but sad about my cards with Theresa's and Beth's sets!  Might get them worked up to show you later though.  Tomorrow will be another Mini Hop too!  Here are the links to my fellow DT   and their awesome creations:

Beth Silaika – Illustrator of Delicate Damask

Thats all from me today!  Im heading to be and cry over spilt milk...:(

I don't use Kraft colored cardstock often enough. This looks really nice.

Raquel Burillo said...

I specially like the heart on top. Thanks for sharing!

Loretta Rush said...

Pretty card. Really like the Kraft paper that ya'll are using now. Thank you.

Debbie Lou said...

Very very pretty! Too bad about the others, I would have loved to have seen them.

Sandra Johnston said...

I always like to see how we can use stamps from some of the sets to create new designs. I have a couple frame sets and never think to use the small stamps or borders without the frames. Thanks for helping me relook at my stamps!

Lisa K said...

Glad you saved one card. It is a nice thank you, simple and sweet.

Karen (TLgirl353) said...


I love the color combo!

Becky said...

I have a cat who likes to sit on my lap and interfere with whatever I'm doing. I don't think there is enough room on my workspace for his to actually get on it, though, so I'm safe there. I'm glad you was able to salvage at least one. I like this set and am going to have to add it to my collection. Thanks for sharing. :-)

Bonnie said...

The one you have is pretty cool. check the others, now that they are dry. Coffee can create interesting dye. Maybe can salvage something and re purpose.

Renee Foulks said...

Don't be too mad, kitty didn't mean to...

Darn that cup of coffee. My husband had medical forms to fill out and he tipped it over onto all of the papers and a lot of other notebooks and folders!!
Hang in there! Saved a card. Nice job!

Cats are beautiful and loving animals, but sometimes, if your attention is elsewhere, they get a little jealous (are you sure it was an accident?) lol

Your card is beautiful - love it's simplicity.
