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 Gina K products! To see the full list of winners check the Big News forum at Stamp TV a couple of days after the hops!!


Today our team is sharing projects made with Melanie's Stately Flowers 5 and Theresa's Vogue Vases 2.  My first card features the smaller mistletoe image from Stately Flowers 5 on CAS Fall To Sketch 211 with designer paper from our Merry Little Christmas pack.   This paper is perfect for bringing out the lighter and darker shades of green that are typical of mistletoe.  The faint tea-dye sponging really emphasizes the repeating squares of this layout.

Notes:
Melanie's Stately Flowers 5 in clear or rubber
GKD Merry Little Christmas designer paper
Pure Luxury card stock
Memento northern pine ink
Copic markers
Tim Holtz tea dye distress ink
Spellbinders classic squares large and small
ribbon


I used generation stamping to create the background for this simple design using some of the foliage from Theresa's Vogue Vases 2.  If you look closely at the green layer of the lacy medallion, you'll notice that it is also stamped with a faint ring of foliage also.  The monochromatic greens are so calming!

Notes:
Theresa's Vogue Vases 2 in clear or rubber
Pure Luxury card stock
Memento pistachio ink
Tim Holtz tea dye distress ink
Spellbinders eyelet circles, classic circles large, ribbon tags 3
twill ribbon
paper flower
