Mini Inspiration Hop & CAS Monday: hello friend



Some of the Cast and Crew for Gina K Designs welcomes you to another Mini Inspiration Blog Hop (and today is also Clean & Simple Monday!)


 Make sure to leave a comment on each blog because we will choose one random comment and that stamper will win a Lots of Washi Stamp Set! 

To see the full list of winners check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hops. Notice I said HOPS because some of the team will be hopping tomorrow too!




Today I am showing off two cards with my recent stamp set: Delicate Damask.  

This first card is stamped on an ivory pre folded card base. I stamped the medium damask image in a rainbow of colors, slightly overlapping. The sentiment from the set is stamped in black.  



The get well soon sentiment would work really well with the rainbow of images too! 

This second card is bold, while remaining clean & simple. I used a purple card base with black ink. The images are from Delicate Damask  and the sentiment is from Lots of Lines. I aded a few black gems to the card at the edge of the flourish. 




Please stop by the other blogs and give them some love too:
