Gina K January release inspiration blog hop: Day 3

Hi everyone!  Welcome to the Final Day of the Gina K Designs January Release Inspiration Blog hop!  Today we are spotlighting the set Fresh Start, the 1 Free with Three set.  This means you will get this set for free when you order any 3 sets from the store!
I made a couple cards using the stamp set and the fabulous paper pack Wisteria Lane.  I used the same basic sketch for both.  It maybe hard to see in the first picture, but I die cut the shape out of the front of the card.  Then stamped the image on the shape and glued it to the inside.  I am fighting a horrible cold, so I am keeping this post short.
For even more samples of this new set, 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 receive a fabulous grab bag of stamps!  You can check out the Big News thread on StampTV Monday of next week to find all the winners. 
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the hop!  I'll leave you with a close up pictures.
