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!!


First up... Wild About You by Theresa Momber....


Hope you all enjoyed the release party last night!!  Always moves fast and there is so much fun chatter as well along the way.  Did you get your shopping done???  I hope you grabbed Theresa's set as for me... it is a fabulous set for those manly cards!!  My card today started with Pure Luxury Sweet Mango card stock.  I ran it through my Seeing Spots Cuttlebug folder to add some texture to the card.  I ran my Vintage Photo Tim Holtz Distress Ink across the embossing to bring out the brown in the giraffe.  I colored the image with Copic markers and cut it out using the Oval Nestabilities.  I sponged a bit of Memento Cantelope around the edges before removing the die.  I also cut a piece of the new Sundance paper pack with the ovals and added it under my image.  I found the ribbon in my stash and added more of the Vintage Photo ink to it as it was black and white before.  I attached my sentiment with some twine.



Next up... Blooming with Blessings by Rupa Shevde


Rupa's set just has such cute little critters in it.  You can't help but smile at them all.  And this bunny is perfect for Easter which is coming up quick!  I started with Pure Luxury Bubble Gum Pink cardstock in A2 size.  I punched both sides of the card and added some of that wonderful Spring paper from the Petals and Wings paper pack.  LOVE this pack!!  I added some lace along each border punch as well.  I stamped my bunny and used more of the Petals and Wings to paper piece him.  I did a bit of coloring on his ears and cheeks with my Copics, as well as coloring his "leeetle friennnd" the butterfly. Hee  I mounted him on top of a few layers using Sweet Mango, Key Lime and Bubble Gum Pink. 



Now check out all the amazing designs and inspiration from the rest of the DT:

Enjoy the hop and thanks for stopping by!! Remember to stop back Monday for more inspiration featuring two more sets.
