Inspiration Hop Day 3!!


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!!

I think these flowers are absolutely beautiful so of course I had to use this image!!  In the past I have really enjoyed coloring traditional rubber stamps with markers and them spritzing with water before stamping.  I don't recall trying this with clear stamps so I decided to give it a try tonight and I am so happy with the results!!  There isn't any difference and since I really like this technique I am so happy!!


Can you just smell fall?  I had a lot of fun choosing which colors to use for this card!  Fall is my favorite time of year!!  From the warm days, cool nights, bonfires and of course the gorgeous trees!!!  

Check out all the amazing designs and inspiration:
