Gina K April release inspiration blog hop: Day 3




Hi everyone!  Today the Design Team for Gina K. Designs welcomes you to another 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 3 sets:  The Stamp TV kit, Hello Sunshine, Birthday Greetings and the One Free with Three set, Life's a Beach -this set is FREE when you buy 3 or more stamp sets.  First up, I made a couple cards with the Hello Sunshine kit.  All the cards I made for today are 3x3, I was kinda on a kick I guess -lol!  Both of these cards follow the same layout, just different colors.  I stamped the blossoms in a light craft ink and colored the centers with a copic marker.
 My next card uses the Birthday Greeting set.  I really love this one.  My sister is always asking me for birthday cards and wants something stamped on the INSIDE.  This set is perfect.
I used the puffy blossoms from the Hello Sunshine kit and the Gina K Designer paper, Petals and Wings.
Last but not least is a card with the One Free with 3 set, Life's a Beach.  I used the Gina K Designer paper, Pool Side.  I made the banner with Spellbinders S5-095 Tags and Flags die templates (love this one!).
Don't forget!  All the new stamp sets are now offered in CLEAR!  I linked up the rubber option, but if you prefer clear click on the What's New Section and you will see both options.
Check out all the amazing designs and inspiration:
Thanks for stopping by and here are a couple close up pictures.
