Gina K Designs July Inspiration Blog Hop




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.

The complete blog list is as the bottom of this post...visit all of the designers to see what they created using these two great sets!!

My first card, I made a stamped card using the Beautiful Banners stamp set from Becky Oehlers.  I can see myself using this a lot!  I am always attracted to bold sentiments...and what can only make that better?  A sentiment banner style!! Love!  I stamped the woodgrain directly onto my card base.  The sunshine and hello images were both stamped onto white card stock, cut out, and then adhered to the card using foam squares.  I rounded the corners, added some washi tape to the bottom, and applied stickles to the sunburst and banner.


This next card was created using a new Diva set called Aloha Mini Diva by Debbi Corbari.  I was instantly drawn to those flowers, and the "hakuna matata" sentiment.  What a great sentiment!  I have many friends who live in Hawaii, so this will be a well "inked" stamp for sure!  Since this is a one layer card, everything was stamped directly onto the card base.  I love rounded the bottoms of cards, so of course to soften up the card a bit...I rounded the corners.


Take a minute to check out what all of these fabulous designers created today!!
