Gina K April release inspiration blog hop: Day 2


Hi everyone!  Today the Design Team for Gina K. Designs welcomes you to another fabulous Inspiration Blog Hop were we hope to inspire you with many beautiful ideas! And as you hop through their blogs, make sure to leave a comment on each because we will choose a few random commenters and they will win a grab bag of deeply etched, pre-cut Gina K. Designs stamps! To see the full list of winners check the Big News forum at Stamp TV a couple of days after the hops!!

Today we are spotlighting the 2 sets, Vintage Notes: 
My first card uses Vintage Notes designed by Tami Mayberry.  This set was designed to coordinate with Spellbinders, S4-359 Office Supplies die templates.  L.O.V.E.!!  I stamped the notebook paper and die cut it with a rectangle die and then the torn notebook edge die from Office Supplies.  I love all the stamp choices for the notebook paper, so many possibilities.
Next up is my card using Sweet Strawberries.  I just love these berries!  This set was illustrated by Theresa Momber and she did such wonderful job capturing the total yumminess of strawberries!  I colored them with my copics and using Scor-Tape and glitter outlined the square panel.
 And here is the INSIDE (for those of you scrolling by fast - this is the inside, not a separate card -lol).
I don't always decorate the inside of my cards, but I couldn't fit the sentiment on the outside and I really wanted to use this one!
Check out all the amazing designs and inspiration:
