Gina K Designs October Inspiration Hop Day 3

Well??? Have you been enjoying the inspiration hops so far??? I HAVE!!  Today we are sharing the final two new releases in this hop.  So, let's get started.... first up...

Tami Mayberry's... "You Go Girl!"...


This set IMMEDIATELY reminded me of my 9 year old daughter!!!  First... she LOVES these sentiments, "You Go Girl!" AND... "Hey, Girlfriend!" LOL   At one point she had a favorite teen show where the girls would "touch" fingers and say... "ewwww".  That was my inspiration for this card.

I used my Reverse Image stamp to do just that for this card.  I began with Pure Luxury Red Hot card stock and layered on some DP I found in my stash.  I added some Black Onyx then my image which I colored with Copic markers.  I put down a strip of Scor Tape and used my black ribbon to make a ruffle along the edge and added a small sparkley button to the top.  I LOVE how this came out and my 9 year old did as well.  :-)  Perhaps I'll save it to give her someday when she's in need of some encouragement.  Hee Hee

Next on our list... the "Free with Three" set... "Pleasant Plurals"...



For this card I began with some Pure Luxury Fresh Asparagus card stock.  I added some of the awesome DP from the Stamp TV Kit, and some Cranberry Tart card stock which I used a border punch on.  I used a piece of Wild Dandelion which I aged a bit using Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Tea Dye.  I stamped my sentiment and added some self-adhesive copper nail heads.

This I plan to send to my son (actually mailed yesterday) to congratulate him on getting 1st chair in Concert Band and doing so good on his report card.  I hope he likes it!  :-)

Now hop on down the list to visit the other DT members.  Remember to leave a comment and Gina will be choosing two winners from all the comments who will each win a fabulous Gina K. Designs grab bag filled with a least a dozen individual precut images!  Enjoy the hop!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!! *smile*
