Gina K Designs Spooktacular You



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.


Here is my card using the Spooktacular You stamp set.  It is a great mini set, with all of your classic Halloween images.  I really love, tone on tone stamping, so I stamped the pumpkins in Sweet Mango ink, I thought the card base needed a little more depth, so I stamped the bats in black ink, over the pumpkins.  I stamped the sentiment onto a die cut, and added the buttons.  I'm not sure if I like the buttons there or not?  But, they kind of look like eyeballs to me lol.

Check out all the amazing designs and inspiration:

Seems like a homerun card to send out to everyone. A bit on spooky side, but not too much for those that don't really enjoy the holiday. Those buttons are a good feature.
