Gina K Sept Inspiration Blog Hop: Primitive Blessings & Seasonal Labels


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 Gina K. Designs Grab Bag that could have anything from stamps to paper to embellishments! To see the list of winners check the Big News forum at Stamp TV a couple of days after the hops!!

Today I am sharing a few cards which I made with Gina's sets. This first one is Primitive Blessings. The cows remind me of my Grandpa! He and his two brothers ran a dairy farm (Shopmyer Brother's Dairy Farm in Schenectady, NY). Eventually, the farm was sold to GE and that is where GE Research & Development is currently located! The three brothers all collected cows. When I saw this COW TRIO I just grinned. This would be something he would say...Whatever you are be a good one. Actually, he would probably just say "Don't be stupid!" Ha ha! Love that man!



 This next card is also made with Primitive Blessings. I used the Blessings sentiment and the background from Becky's set. I colored the tree with copics after I stamped. I love copics.



remember when rick rack was all the rage? Yeah. I had some lying around, so I figured, why not...

Finally, here is a sample from Seasonal Labels. I used some of Gina's designer paper to create this one!


I used some brads on the sides of the main image. I love brads...
 

That is it from me....
