Gina K. Design December 2015 Inspiration Hop

The Cast and Crew for Gina K Designs welcomes you to another fabulous Inspiration Blog Hop! This blog hop is for our December Release!  We hope to inspire you with some beautiful card projections 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.


Hip! Hip! Hooray! It's Inspirational Blog Hop Day!

Here is a card I made with both Mel's set and mine. I used her set for the background with some versamark ink. The Hippo image was stamped in black and colored with spectrum noir markers. The 100 on the balloon is from my this & that set. I made this for the swim coach who just had a milestone record win for the boy's team. 

This card uses the santa hat from the Stamp TV kit. I stamped the hat (from the owls) and trimmed it up and then colored it. The holidays sentiment is from the kit too.  

I dug deep in my stash of Gina K. Designer papers for the next few cards. This first one uses the designer paper for the background. It's so bright and festive. Perfect for a birthday card!


 This next one uses the paper from the poppy prints pack. Simply stamp the images on the designer paper and trim.
  



This one uses the paper from the same pack, but look at how cute the hippo is in plaid!







This card has hearts in various sizes from the this & that set. I stamped them in versamark on the ocean mist background. 



Full watercolored background with the cake and candle image along with the wish big sentiment!




Mel's Twine Time set is great for all you sew fanatics out there! 

This is literally me this month - tied up cutting paper and misplacing the scissors and tape while wrapping!




This is a fun thank you card using some watercoloring and sequins!

  3. I don't know why I didn't put together the wrapping flurry when I saw and loved this card, even though I've been embroiled in it myself for weeks! Too funny, yes, I am always losing the scissors and tape, gah!! These are great samples and a fabulous set of ours! I really like how you did the watercolor bg on the other twine card, too.
