Gina K October release inspiration blog hop: Day 3

Hi everyone!  Hi everyone!!  Welcome to the last day of the Gina K Designs October Release Inspiration Blog hop!  Today we are spotlighting the fun and sassy set, You Go Girl illustrated by Tami Mayberry and the One Free with 3 (you order 3 or more stamp sets and get this for free!), Pleasant Plurals.

My first card is with the set You Go Girl.  This set has some great quotations to go along with this sassy girl!  I chose the Eleanor Roosevelt quotation as she was one inspirational woman!  I also like how there is not much to color on this image (no complicated clothing, etc).  For a change of pace, I busted out the layers and sewing machine on this card.  
Next up is my sample with Pleasant Plurals.  I L.O.V.E sentiment stamp sets, in my opinion, you can NEVER have enough.  You need different font styles and sizes on hand for cards of all kinds!  This card uses the paper from Echo Park's,Victoria Garden.  I used the sketch from Chupa's Saturday Sketchbook for this card.
 For even more samples of these sets, you can visit 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.

  7. I love the gorgeous rose paper and the way you coordinated it with that lush ribbon. And your coloring on the woman in your first card is wonderful, of course. Her jeans look just the way denim looks after awhile, faded in just the right places. Awesome!
