Gina K September release inspiration blog hop: Day 2

Hi everyone!  Today the Design Team for Gina K. Designs welcomes you to Day 2 of the Inspiration Blog Hop were we hope to inspire you with many beautiful ideas for the sets released in September! As you hop through the blogs, make sure to leave a comment on each because we will choose a few random commenters and they will win a grab bag that could have anything from stamps to paper to embellishments!! 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:
  You say Goodbye and I say Ello! illustrated by Becky
 Take Note illustrated by Tami:
Wicked illustrated by Beth:
 First up, is my card using ...I say 'Ello. Becky designed this stamp set to say Hello and Goodbye in a cheeky fun way in lots of different languages!  It features "Ello” and “Pip Pip Cheerio” for the British telephone booth.  “Guten Tag” and “Tschuss” for the German Dachshunds.  "Ciao” for both the hello and goodbye for the Italian coffee cups and “Bonjour” and “Au revoir” for the beret-wearing baguette!  Cute stuff!  I paper pieced my little cup with pattern paper and stamped the chevron pattern for the bottom paper strip.
My next card uses Take Note.  This set is perfect for all you crafters who are doing the Project Life albums and much more!  I used the frame image and the super cute "thumbs up/like" image along with some stamps from Tami's older set, Live Life Loud.
 Lastly are a couple cards using the stamp set Wicked.  This Halloween set just makes me smile!  I love the cute little images and great sentiments.  I started out by stamping the stars to make a background piece, then I busted out my Circle Nestabilities dies and went to town!  I liked it so much I made TWO!  One using the Jelly Bean Green cardstock. 
And one using the Vibrant Violet cardstock!
Don't forget, all the new stamp sets are now offered in CLEAR which is what I linked.  But if you prefer rubber, click on the What's New Section and you will see both options.
Check out all the amazing designs and inspiration:
