Gina K Designs May Inspiration Hop


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!!  So, let's get started.....




Melanie's set this month includes my very favorite flower, the carnation!  I had such a hard time deciding on a color since, of course, carnations come in EVERY color imaginable and if they don't... you CAN color them!!! Perhaps that's why I fell in love with them years ago!  I remember doing the food color trick as a Girl Scout and making mine blue! Ha!  

I started with a Pure Luxury card base in Bubble Gum Pink layered with a bit of Passionate Pink.  I added some Gina K Designs Patterned Paper from the Petals and Wings set for a soft texture.  My image was colored with Copic markers and I cut it out using my Labels 4 Nestabilities.  I mounted it using Pop Dots and added a little bling to the mix.  


I am sooo in love with this set and I had a VERY hard time not using it on EVERY single card I made for this release! LOL  Today I decided to showcase it using an image from Rupa Shevde's set, "Enjoy the Journey".

My card base is Pure Luxury Innocent Pink.  I layered it with some Dark Chocolate and added a layer of Gina K Designs Patterned Paper, "Sunshiny Day".  I added some pieces of Dark Chocolate.  My luggage was stamped on white and I paper pieced it using the Patterned Paper as well.  I stamped the tickets on the Innocent Pink and smaller ticket I paper pieced the border using the patterned paper. 


Now check out all the amazing designs and inspiration from the Design Team:

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the hop!!! Have a GREAT weekend!! *HUGS*
