Gina K. Designs February 2016 Inspiration Blog Hop: Day 2 (Genevieve Giraffe & Scripty Sayings)



The Cast and Crew for Gina K Designs welcomes you to another fabulous blog hop celebrating the new stamps from the February Release Party. We hope to inspire you with some beautiful card projects as you hop along to each of the designer’s blogs!

Today, we are featuring the new stamp set “Genevieve Giraffe” by Beth Silaika and the incentive set “Scripty Sayings” by Gina K. 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.

Genevieve Giraffe was inspired by Gina telling me "do another set like the hippo! People loved it!"  I really love giraffes, and decided this one was as cute as a button, so I named it after my youngest daughter Genevieve.  She likes ducks, so I added the cute little bird (which kind of looks like a duck!)



This first card has a tag and sentiment banner.  Tags are great fun to make, and coordinating the color with the green designer paper from Gina K was fun! Next time you are stuck somewhere (say a three day swim meet), bring some stamped images and markers to color.  You can always add them to cards later! Makes the time go quickly!



Window cards are fun to make - I simply stamped the images multiple times and trimmed them and put their faces in the windows! 


Here is another version of a window card. The giraffe is easy to pop into a variety of places on cards! 


This window card has some nice bold graphic Gina K. paper in it! I punched out a scrap with a heart punch for the corner of the card. 


It is fun to experiment with nontraditional colors with Genevieve. There are some great sentiments for baby's - so you can make your own personalized baby cards!

Next, the Scripty Sayings incentive set goes with all the stamps released this month! I put the little bird on the edge of the scripty saying!

  24. Beth, lovely cards...all of them. This whole set is growing on me fast. I love all the sayings. Every time I saw the saying "I think I love you". I would think of the song "Wild thing". Good memories. Great use of patterned paper too. I need to take a better look at the paper in the last tvkit. BTW. You do realize that you kind of decapitated Genevieve? All in the name of artistic freedom...
