Gina K Release Inspiration Blog Hop: Day 4

Hi everyone!  Welcome to the final day of the the Gina K Designs May Release Inspiration Blog hop!  Today we are spotlighting the StampTV Kit set, Vintage Chic.  Be still my little heart.  This set is A-MAZING!  I love all the images in it BIG TIME.  Kinda funny how both my cards ended up using the same image and sentiment, let's just say that was planned.  Yeah, planned!  lol!

First up is the card I shared on the Invitation blog hop post, but for those of you who missed it here it is.  I went pretty vintage with this one.  Some layering, sewing and distressing.  Soft and pretty.  
This next card is the polar opposite!  One layer CAS card.  I guess it shows just how versatile these images are.  For this card, I used some Washi Tape (a recent splurge from Etsy), some Baker's twine and a few tiny rhinestones.  The image was heat embossed (I've been doing that a lot lately) and I added some white gel pen accents to the centers.

For even more samples of these new sets, you can visit each of the GKD Design Team blogs listed below.  Make sure you leave a comment here and on each of their blogs because Gina is going to draw two randomly chosen winners from all of the blog comments, and each will get a stamp set of their choice valued at up to $24.95!  Gina will announce the winners on her blog tomorrow.
Thanks for stopping by!  I will leave you with a couple close up pictures.  Thank you all so much for joining me with this 4 day inspiration blog tour!  Have a great day and enjoy the rest of the hop!
