Gina K July 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 July! 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 of Gina's products!! 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:
 Up Up and Away, designed by Theresa
Lots of Dots Alphabet, designed by Beth
First up is a card I made with Up Up and Away.  I just love the balloon images in this set.  They are so versatile, you can color or paper piece them.  For my card, I colored them with copics to match the zig zag stripes (from the Pretty Patterns set) stamped in Turquoise Sea and Sweet Mango.  Some simple twine and sequin accents and done!
 My next card uses Lots of Dots Alphabet. For this card, I took advantage of some odds and ends laying around on my desk.  I love how with some simple letters, you can make your own sentiment pull things together for a cute and simple card!  The accent butterfly is from the new set, Stately Flowers 7.

Ready for the hop?  Check out all the amazing designs and inspiration:
