October Inspiration Hop: Stately Flowers 5 & Vogue Vases 2

 

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!!

I really REALLY love this Vogue Vases stamp set. It is so easy to work with. I loved using the outlined vases on this CAS card, allowing me to color them in with copic markers. I used different shades of green for the vase fillers. I used a post it note, covered the vase and stamped the flower or leaves -- easy peasy!





I really enjoyed playing with Stately Flowers 5. I tried to keep it very simple and clean. I created a strip with the smaller floral image on Gina K white cardstock. I also used a strip of gina k designer paper. I love the Laura Ingalls quote!
