Gina K Designs April Inspiration Hop Day 3

Today is the last day of the Gina K Designs Design Team Hop.  Hope you have enjoyed hopping as much as we've enjoyed sharing our work with you!  Never fear, even though it's the end of the Inspirational Hops... I'm sure the DT will have many more creations on their blogs over the next few weeks featuring the awesome April Release sets!!  Now... on to the last of the sets.


What's the dirt?... by Gina Krupsky


Gina's set is perfect now that Spring is here and a great reminder that it's time to get those flowers and plants going!!  :-)

I started my card with Pure Luxury Sweet Mango and added a layer of White.  On top of the white I added some of the fabulous Floral Elegance Digital Paper available at Gina K Designs.  If you remember a couple weeks back, Gina showed us "Shadow Stamping".  Gina also showed us how she stamped on her DP to add a bit more texture to her card.  That is what I did with this digital paper.  I used a few of the stamps from the set and a coordinating ink to stamp images to the Floral Elegance.  I stamped the pots on White card stock and colored them with my Copic markers.  I then used my oval and scalloped oval Nestabilities to cut out my image.  I added a few self-adhesive copper nail heads, a ribbon behind and some pop dots to create more dimension on the card.

How would you like to win this beautiful set? Today Gina is giving away 2 of these stamp sets!  All you have to do is leave a comment on each of the blogs in today's blog hop. We will randomly choose 2 names from all the comments and those winners can choose any stamp set valued at up to $23.95!

Thanks for stopping by today and enjoy the remainder of the hop.

Have a great day!! *smile*
