Gina K Inspiration Hop Day 1


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!!

Today we're sharing cards made with Melanie's Basket Additions 3, and Theresa's Country Roads.  Such FUN sets to work with!


Here's a basket stuffed with spooks for Halloween!  These colors are some of my favorites to work with all year!  I added a creepy spider web to one corner, and lots of distressing.  I'd love to have a real live decoration like this in a corner of my house for Halloween!


This old truck from Theresa's Country Roads makes a great masculine card!  I chose to color the trees in varying shades of green with a red truck, but just as easily could've put the colors in reverse for Fall trees with a green truck instead!  I wanted to try something new for an embellishment...what do you think?  It is definitely different and was kinda fun to come up with!


Here's one more with Theresa's set and some new GKD paper.  This one needs a bit of green somewhere in the card to balance that green mat.  I think I'm gonna go back and color in a few of the stems and leaves to bring it into the designer paper.
