Gina K Designs Release Inspiration hop: Day 3

Hi everyone!  Welcome to Day 3 of the Gina K Designs Release Inspiration hop!

Today we are showcasing the fabulous sets, Perfect Pennants, Cute as a Bug and Lovely Labels 3.  WOW!  Seriously, you are going to love all 3 of these sets!!  Two of them are designed to coordinate with Spellbinder dies -which will be arriving to Gina's store soon! 

First up, is Perfect Pennants designed by Tami Mayberry.  This set is designed to coordinate with Spellbinder Pennant Dies.  Banners are so hot right now and this set is FABULOUS!!  I made this for Bill's birthday which was on Sunday.  I had fun playing around with stamping out the pennant styles in different colors and settled for 4 colors and 4 designs.  Cute, huh?
My next card uses the adorable set, Cute as a Bug designed by Rupa Shevde.  This little bee is the cutest and I just had to bust out my old favie Cosmo Early Bird papers!  I tried to color the bee with my copic markers, but was having trouble with the tiny stripes bleeding together.  So, I used my trusty ole color pencils and gamsol.  Man, I haven't colored that way in FOREVER!  After a couple "practice bees" it turned out great!! 
My last card uses Lovely Labels 3 which is designed by Nina Brackett.  This amazing set is designed to coordinate with the Spellbinder Labels 18, 20 and 21.  I don't have any of these Label sets (yet), so I hand cut out my shape -easy peasy!  I really had fun with this one.  I stamped the label in Vintage Photo Distress ink and the sentiment in Perfect Plum ink.  All the papers and accents on this card are K&Company from the Flora & Fauna collection.
For even more samples of these new sets, please visit each of the GKD Designer blogs listed below and leave a comment. The more blogs you comment on, the more chances you have of winning!  Tomorrow, Gina will announce on her blog the randomly chosen winners who will each win one of these fabulous new stamp sets!
 Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!  I'll leave you with some close up pics.

  37. Hi Michelle~

    What wonderful cards...and they are all so unique from each other! I could think of so many times a penant would come in handy on a card!

    I love the way you colored the "Bee" card! Her wings are beautiful...I love the little behive on the Sentiment! The paper is so perfect for this card! And, you know I am crazy about your circles in/on or as your cards! Fabulous!

    The Vintage card has such beautiful paper! I love it! The sentiment on that label piece is fabulous! It looks so perfect for this card. I love the butterfly brad (?) on the ribbon. It is wonderful how you pulled this whole card together. I would love to see what you would do to pull a "Vintage" card together, using whatever you wanted. Let loose. Just curiuos! :)
