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!!

Tami's newest set is so sweet and so much fun!!!  I really love everything about it, both the images and sentiments are great!!  I wanted to try to make this lightbulb look as close to real as I could, I was a bit stumped but then I got the idea to add glossy accents!

We have another great set from Becky!  One thing I love about this set, depending on the ink colors you use, it looks like a whole different set!!  I am really in love with the large image, it is so versitle!  Because I chose American Quality, I had to use stars!  :)

It was so hard to choose which images to use from Beth's set!!  Yep, you guessed it, I truly love them all, really!  :)  So I took a different approach than what I normally do, I decided on colors first.  I really wanted to use my white ink and haven't used purple in a card for a while.  I decided on Sandy beach as my neutral.  In the middle of the flowers I used white Liquid Pearls to help the butterflies stand out a bit more.  I don't think you can see it too well in the photo but I stamped the little "Hi" with Versamark randomly in the top area above the ribbon.
