Lots of Dots
Darling Divas
Petite Borders

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 Gina K. Designs products! To see the full list of winners check the Big News forum at Stamp TV a few days after the hops.

These sets were fun to work with. I was able to mix and match sets very easily!

You may want to grab a cup of coffee - because I have been stamping up a STORM!
 
Here are the samples I made with the sets:


This could be a cute way to share your baby's gender reveal!

This was a super simple card using the silhouette cut file. I made it for Victoria's teacher who retired at the end of last month!

I used the smaller image from serenity diva to make a background with versamark ink!

This is a great way to use up some of the scraps in your studio! I used the dots to make the background!

This one uses a custom silhouette cut file!

This card was an experiment! I used a custom silhouette cut file for the leaf. I took a piece of white card stock and colored it with copic markers, blending the shades of green together. I stamped over it with lots of dots in fresh asparagus. 
I think the results were pretty cool!

I stamped the kite and clouds twice and trimmed one set to pop up with foam squares. There are stickles all over the clouds!

There are so many options with polka dots - this one is just some random stamping with the circular dot pattern and some single dots. I used the All Occasion Tags 2 sentiment on the banner!

I hope you enjoyed these samples as much as I enjoyed making them!
