Gina K. September Inspiration Blog Hop: Day One

The Cast and Crew for Gina K Designs welcomes you to another fabulous Inspiration Blog Hop! Gina, along with the Cast and Crew and Guest Designers, 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 StampTV a few days after the hops.

Here are my samples:



This first card uses the half circle with line on the top and bottom, with the sentiment from Keep Calm. 
I used versamark and the flower on each side of the sentiment and then added two black gems.

my next card uses the circle frame from Melanie's set, along with the sentiment and open fleur de lis from Fleur De Lis. I colored the fleur de lis with spectrum noir markers and outlined it with a sakura gel pen.

 this pair of birthday cards for Sophie's friends (twins) was fun to make using Melanie's framed dotted oval! I used the cupcake and the WISH BIG sentiment from Keep Calm. I experimented with Gina K. white ink and a watercolor brush to give the "frosting" a soft look.


This was my favorite card to make. I stamped the image in black and colored it with spectrum noir markers and highlighted it with a paint brush and white ink. The sentiment is in white ink.

 Finally, this card was super fun to color. I stamped the image in Gina K. black ink and colored it with Spectrum Noir markers.
