Inspiration Mosaic Blog Hop

Tonight we are show casing Melanie Muenchinger's newest Gina K Designs stamp set, "Inspiration Mosaic". This is truly an awesome awesome set and VERY versatile as I'm sure you will see tonight after visiting all the blogs! Melanie's set was a sell out and those of us who were dying to get our hands on it had a bit of a wait. Mine was even slow in coming and I ordered the night of the Release Party!! But it's back and I KNOW you will want one for your stash as soon as you see the fabulous cards the Design Team and Melanie's guests put together. My first card I want to share features not only the Inspiration Mosaic but also one of Melanie's earlier sets called "Hand in Hand". I stamped the images using Momento Tuxedo Black ink and colored the hands in with my Copic markers. I also used a bit of paper piecing on some of the squares. I did this card to give to my mother as a symbol of three generations. The light pink on the one arm was used as a symbol of her wedding dress when she and dad married, these are their hands. The next set to the right represent mine and my husband's hands... on down to our children. If I know my mom she'll want this framed and put in her entry way on the table, thus the green coloring. I hope she likes it.

My next card was done using Melanie's set and a set by Gina K herself called "Take Flight". Again I colored in with my Copic markers and sponged some color all over the butterfly portions.

I used Gina's newest Pure Luxury Cardstock Heavy Base Weight Green Apple. Such a nice crisp color. I couldn't help using it on BOTH cards!! For even more inspiration, be sure to check out Melanie's blog. Melanie also has several guest designers joining in on the hop tonight: Jennie Harper, Linda Payne, and Jenny Charboneau These GinaK's Senior DT members have Inspiration Mosaic projects on their blogs as well: Gina K., Cathy, Emily, Erika, Jessica, Lee, Donna, and Theresa and finally, don't forget to check out our CenterStage DT members: Shannon Bracken and Brenda Turner Signature

Tina, I love the "Hand in Hand" stamp set -- it is kind of sentimental, because it was my first Gina K Stamp set. I just adore the way you have used it. Thank you for sharing it!
