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 Gina K. Designs Grab Bag that could have anything from stamps to paper to embellishments! To see the list of winners check the Big News forum at Stamp TV a couple of days after the hops!!


Today, our team is sharing projects with Melanie's set, Beyond Baskets, and Theresa's Joyful Holiday.  Such fun images to work with!

My first card is packed with Fall color!  I am lovin' working with these colors lately!

Notes:
Pure Luxury Card Stock
Melanie's Beyond Baskets, clear or rubber
Wild About You (grass)
Sun Kissed Autumn designer paper
Memento Tuxedo Black ink
Ranger tea dye and frayed burlap distress inks
Copic markers
twill
button
jute thread


My card using Theresa's set is much more subdued!  I wanted to use a fancy fold that would allow me to show several of the images from this lovely set, so I followed Sandy Hulsart's spring card tutorial!  It is a little more difficult with card stock but I love the way it looks.  

Notes: 
Pure Luxury Card Stock
Theresa's Joyful Holiday, clear or rubber
