Inspiration Hop Day 1!!

The Design Team for Gina K. Designs welcomes you to another fabulous Inspiration Blog Hop!!! Gina and the Design Team will inspire you with many beautiful ideas! And as you hop through their blogs, make sure to leave a comment on each of them because we will choose a few random comments and those stampers will each win a grab bag of deeply etched, pre-cut Gina K. Designs stamps! To see the full list of winners check the Big News forum at Stamp TV a couple of days after the hops!!


My first card uses Tami's new set Ticket Trio.  This set is so much fun with so many possibilities!!  I know a couple of ladies having babies soon and thought this set was perfect for one of them!!!  One of the ladies is having a baby boy and thought it would be so much fun to use the technique that Gina taught us last week Wainscot Background!!  Fun, quick and easy technique!!!



Next up is my card for Melanie's new set Stately Flowers 4.  I had a hard time deciding which image to use, they are so gorgeous!!!  And I thought mostly white with the color being just for the flower to stand out would work perfectly!!  I used silver embossing powder for the sentiment and really like how it looks!! 


Check out all the amazing designs and inspiration:
