Gina K December release inspiration blog hop: Day 1

Hi everyone!  Welcome to Day 1 of the Gina K Designs DT Inspiration Blog Hop where we hope to inspire you with many beautiful ideas for the sets released in December! 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 the new stamp set It's the Little Things, Illustrated by Becky
And Vertical Greetings, Illustrated by Theresa
 
First up is a baby card using It's the Little Things.  I just love this little elephant.  I am not an expert colorer, so I colored him with 3 grey Copic markers, really simple.  The balloons are stamped with Navy, Sweet Corn (outlined in Honey Mustard) with GKD Color Companions ink.
 Next up is a sympathy card using Vertical Greetings.  These cards are always so hard to make, I kept it simple with minimal embellishments and just allowed the beautiful poppies image to say it all.
Ready for the hop?  Check out all the amazing designs and inspiration:
  Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the hop!  Here are a couple close up pictures.
