Inspiration Hop Day 2!!

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!!

First Up I have a card I made from Under the Sea!  I've always loved fish and many years ago we had a fish tank.  I sure wish we had room for one now, they are so calming.  I'm not too good at creating scenes but this set makes it so easy and fun!!

Next up is my card for Enjoy the Journey!  Another super fun set!!  Typically I don't send cards when I know someone is going on vacation but wouldn't it be fun to surprise someone with one?!  But this set can be used for so many other things, graduation, moving, congratulations, and on and on and on!! I just love this image and it was a lot of fun to color and cut out!!

Check out all the amazing designs and inspiration:

  32. Amazing cards! I was having a hard time envisioning how I would use the Journey set as I don't know many retiring and I don't think to give a card when someone goes one vacation but you ladies sure do make a girl rethink her stand! And yes, I think it would be fun to get a card celebrating my vacation!
