Gina K May release inspiration blog hop: Day 1

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 May! 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 2 sets:
Pretty Patterns 2, illustrated by Melanie

Bold Blooms, illustrated by Becky
First up is a set of quick and easy thank you cards using Pretty Patterns 2 and sentiment from Stamp It Big 2.  Each of these cards uses a different border stamp, Color Companions ink and with matching ribbon - Powder Blue, Grass Green (Fresh Asparagus and Sage) and Sweet Corn.
Next I have a Spring and a Fall flowers card using the small blooms in the Bold Blooms set.  I just love how versatile these flowers are.  Once again, each card uses the Color Companion inks and ribbons -Sweet Corn, Sweet Mango, Honey Mustard and Fresh Asparagus.  I accented the Fall card with rhinestones and the Spring card with sequins.
Ocean Mist, Turquoise Sea, Sweet Corn, and Grass Green

Ready for the hop?  Check out all the amazing designs and inspiration:
Thanks for stopping by, enjoy the hop!
