Gina K January release inspiration blog hop: Day 1

*this is a pre-scheduled post, I am currently at CHA*
Hi everyone! Welcome to Day 1 of the Gina K Designs DT Inspiration Blog Hop were we hope to inspire you with many beautiful ideas for the sets released in January! 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:
Stately Flowers 6, illustrated by Melanie
Lovely Ladybug, illustrated by Beth
and Stamp it Big, illustrated by Carolyn
Those of you who have been following StampTV know that this month Gina launched several new products within the Color Companions Collection!  Here is a picture of the Cherry Red Collection.  How fabulous are these?  I am so excited for these!
Each Color Companions Collection includes the ink pad, reinker, buttons, ribbons and card stock. All items are sold separately. They will also be offering a Color Companions Card Stock collection that includes 3 sheets each of all eight Companion Colors so you can have a taste of the entire line.

I have samples today using the sets Lovely Ladybug and Stamp it Big.  First up is Lovely Ladybug.  What a darling little set, these ladybugs are SO versatile! I made this little guy into a love bug on this card.  I also used some of the Cherry Red grosgrain ribbon.
Next I have a CAS card using Stamp it Big.  I kept this monochromatic using some of the new Red Hot double stitched ribbon and pattern paper from the Hello Sunshine pack.  I wish I had more time, I would love to make these in a rainbow of colors, how cool would that be?
Ready for the hop?  Check out all the amazing designs and inspiration:
 Thanks for stopping by, here are a couple close up pictures.  Enjoy the hop!
