Gina K March Preview Hop Day 3

Tami Mayberry's, "Perfect Pennants" is soooo much fun and I've been dying to get a pennant set.  So glad I waited!!!  Tami's stamps also coordinate with the new Spellbinders pennant dies which are just now releasing.  They will be in the Gina K Designs store as well... yippee!!!

I wanted to make a birthday card full of prints and color for my daughter's tenth birthday and Tami's set was PERFECT for it!!!  I started with a base card of Pure Luxury Ocean Mist and then layered on some Wild Dandelion.  My DP layer is from the Basic Grey Hopscotch pack.  I stamped my pennants on White using Vivid Inks and Memento Inks.  I cut them each out and layered up the little pennants on top of the larger ones.  When I attached them to the card I simply glued down the very top of each so they appeared to be attached but yet hanging loose on the bottoms.  I added bakers twine to the ends and also stamped my sentiment and layered it on a Nestabilities Fancy Tag which I cut one end off. 



Rupa Shevde's newest set, "Cute as a Bug" is true to it's name!! OMGosh these little guys were so cute and I just couldn't decide which one to start with so I used them all!!! LOL

I began by spritzing my tags with color and then found some coordinating DP to go along the bottom of each. My images were stamped on Pure Luxury white and colored with my Copic markers.  I used my Scallop Circle and Lacy Circle Nestie on the bee and ladybug image.  I used my Copic multi-liner to free-hand some dots and dashes around each image.  I added my sentiment and cut it out and added a small eyelet to the ends.  I found some coordinating bakers twine and added a button on each.  They really are a "Cute as a Bug" set!

My final card features Nina Brackett's, "Lovely Labels 3".  Nina can really crank out those stamp sets that coordinate with the Spellbinder Nestabilities and this set  is FABULOUS for those manly cards!  But... they are awesome for a feminine card as well.  I focused on a manly design because those are just not always something I have on hand when I need them!

I began with Pure Luxury Kraft card stock and layered on some All Spruced Up.  The DP I found in my stash.  I stamped my image on the Kraft card stock as well using Memento Ink, Bamboo Leaves.  I carefully cut around the image and mounted it with Pop Dots.  My ribbon was layered in the middle and I added a small button with some twine.

    Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the hop!! *smile*
