Gina K Designs DT 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 Gina K. Designs products! To see the full list of winners check the Big News forum at Stamp TV a couple of days after the hops!!



Melanie is at it again with more fantastic state flowers for us!  And what a perfect time to add Oklahoma to the mix with the mistletoe being it's state's flower!!!  From what I hear, a rose may have been adopted a few years back as the official flower, but for sure it, at one time, was the mistletoe as well.  So... I'm sure Melanie will have you covered.  ;-)  

My card base is Pure Luxury card stock, Cranberry Tart, layered with some white and then a layer of Green Grass.  I added a layer of DP from the Patterned Paper Pack, "Merry Little Christmas" and stamped my image on more White then colored with my Copic markers.  I added Liquid Pearl drops for my berries and a few self-adhesive pearls at the bottom.  I did a bit of distressing around the edges and added some Tim Holtz Distress Ink, "Fired Brick" before adhering my image using Pop Dots.   


Theresa's set has so many options to it that it was hard for me to decide which I wanted to work with first.  :-)  I decided to go with a simple layout and a repeat design.  

My card base is Pure Luxury Lovely Lavender layered with some Vibrant Violet and a layer of white.  I added a lower border to resemble a table top or shelf then took some DP from the Patterned Paper Pack, "Hello Sunshine".  My vases were stamped in Memento ink and I added the flower bunch using the same ink and stamping over the vase which deepened the color where the flowers were.  I used a deeper ink color to stamp the words at the top of the vases.  

My vases were also popped up to give them a bit more dimension using Pop Dots.  

Check out more amazing designs and inspiration from the rest of the Design Team:
