Inspiration Blog Hop: Day 2 (Simply the best & This and That)


rabbit rabbit rabbit!

HAPPY OCTOBER! 


The Cast and Crew for Gina K Designs welcomes you to another fabulous Inspiration Blog Hop! This blog hop is for  our September Release!  Boy, do we have some treats for you this month!  We hope to inspire you with some eye candy as you hop along in the hop this month!  Enjoy the gorgeous inspiration samples from the team and then comment on each blog for your chance to win an awesome grab bag of GKD goodies! !!   To see who won,  check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hop.

Today we are showing off cards with Simply the best and This and That.  This and That is my latest stamp set and I really love it! I hope you do too!


This card uses a sponged top half of the card! It reminds me of sitting out watching the Super Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse! Who else did that? Woohoo!


I love this card. So simple. Could be a great graduation card! 


There is no birthday as anticipated as the the 21st. Don't you think? This has an dry embossed background and glitter window!


This sweet 16 card features the vine background from Theresa's set and the sentiment from This and That.



So this was the male version of the sweet 16 card. I had to make it for boy/girl twins.  I thought the stitching and the circle looked more lacrosse-ish (I know that is not a word) so this was the masculine version!

Who just needs a pick-me-up every once in a while? Line up these sentiments on your big lined stamp set and put the you in a different color to make it pop!


Here it is on blue card stock! Sometimes all you need is a note telling you that you are all these things to turn your day/week/month around!

 

This and That paired with some holiday lights from Deck the Halls



This card uses the image from Delicate Damask along with the sentiment from This and That.



Ocean mist base with black and turquoise sea inks.  While the fabulous was still wet, I sprinkled it with glitter embossing powder. 

Close up: you can see the glitter fabulous! 


I made this for Curt & Tim's wedding a few week's back. 
what is nice, you can mix and match the sentiments to suit your needs, such as matching the wedding colors!


This card features Mel's Triple Play Holiday set with This and That. Some days I grab 4 colors of ink and just stamp a collage background. I cover it up with the sentiment strip and it looks so clean!

This card is so elegant I cannot even stand it! Someone better get married soon so I can use it! It uses Theresa's vine background - stamped in versamark and embossed in silver. I used the mr. & mrs. mix and match sentiments from This and That and some silver ribbon.
