Gina K May release inspiration blog hop: Day 2

Hi Everyone!  Welcome to Day 2 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:
Stamp it BIG 2, illustrated by Carolyn
Simple Flowers, Illustrated by Tami
First up are a couple cards I made with Stamp it BIG 2.  I love how the large bold words can take center stage on the card.  I used lots of Color Companion new inks, papers, ribbons and buttons on this first card.
 My next card uses some wood veneer heart accents I've been wanting to use and some red grosgrain.  I want to pause a minute here and let you know that the grosgrain ribbon from Gina is SUPER soft and pliable.  There are many brands out there that are stiff and hard to use, but not Gina's!
 Next up I have 2 cards using Simple Flowers (and the sentiment is from Simple Hearts) .  I just love all the circles in this set cause I *may* have a slight obsession with my Circle Nestabilities dies!!  This card layout could be done in tons of colors and use striped pattern papers that comes in all our favorite 6x6 pads!  Once again, I have used lots of inks from the Color Companions line.  This card uses Fresh Asparagus, Sweet Corn and Passionate Pink.
This one uses Turquoise Sea, Fresh Asparagus, and Bubblegum Pink.
Ready for the hop?  Check out all the amazing designs and inspiration: 
Thanks for stopping by, enjoy the hop!
 
Spellbinders dies used are Circles SM Nestabilitites and Jewel Flowers and Flourishes Shapeabilities.
