Gina K Inspiration Hop Day 3!


The Design Team for Gina K. Designs welcomes you to another fabulous Inspiration Blog Hop!!! 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 deeply etched, pre-cut Gina K. Designs stamps! To see the full list of winners check the Big News forum at Stamp TV a couple of days after the hops!!


If you attended the release party last week, you might have already seen my project, a long tall card featuring an adorable hot air balloon and patchwork printed paper from the Petals and Wings StampTV Kit.  This particular print reminded me of a patchwork landscape that one might see when looking down upon the earth from an airplane, or perhaps in this case, from another soaring balloon!  It was fun to color this one with Copics and then paper-piece the heart with this darling plaid paper!

The colors of the designer paper perfectly matched the pretty pink of the Thickers that I pulled from my craft stash.  I love the contrast, dimension and texture they bring to this project, and how girlie and romantic it is, overall.  It is just a happy design that makes me smile inside out!

Check out all the amazing designs and inspiration:
