Gina K Designs Inspiration Hop!



Did you have fun at the release party last night?  I had a great time!  I usually don't comment much because I then get behind, and the party progresses at dizzying speed as it is!  I love getting to be together and really get to know about each other and what's happening in our everyday lives!

Today we're sharing projects made with two new sets, Rupa's Under the Weather, and Melanie's Holiday Basket.  Both are fabulous sets, really fun to color!

I wanted my first card to look like a cuddly bear with a warm fuzzy blanket!  Hopefully the lacy edge at the top helps to convey the idea!

Notes:
Copic markers
lace
grosgrain ribbon



My second card is like a basket of sunshine!  I absolutely adore Fall sunflowers!  These are colored and shaded with sunny yellows, then given "earth" ultrafine Flower Soft centers.  Simple, bright, and cheerful!


Notes:
Copic markers
Earth Ultrafine Flower Soft
Flower Soft PVA glue
grosgrain ribbon
brads
Cutterbee paper snips
Pop Dots (1/2 and 1/4 inch)


Here are the designs participating in today's Inspiration Hop!  Have fun browsing their blogs!
