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 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 we're sharing projects with Seasonal Labels and Primitive Blessings.  I love this Peace sentiment  from Seasonal Labels.  It is most often associated with the holidays, but is equally appropriate for everyday circumstances, especially when paired with the right image, like this one from the Sun-Kissed Autumn StampTV kit.  It makes me think of my wise, Godly friend Grace, who says that giving your problems to God in prayer is like releasing a balloon and watching it float heavenward...we should receive His peace and do our best not to bring those problems back down to earth!  It also makes me think of "catching a ray" of sunshine!  The bright colors and carefree floral design of the Sun-Kissed Autumn designer paper set the stage for warm, happy thoughts.  

Notes:
Seasonal Labels (One Free with Three) in clear or rubber
Sun-Kissed Autumn Stamp TV kit in clear or rubber
Pure Luxury Card Stock
Memento Tuxedo Black ink
Copic markers

Spellbinders long rectangles dies
spiral punch
rhinestones
velvet ribbon


Here's a simple, whimsical design using images and a coordinating sentiment from Primitive Blessings.  I used a scrap of Echo Park designer paper for the sky, a few punched strips of green card stock for grass, and some black twine for the power line.  To bring a little more detail and a pop of contrasting color to the design, I added a tiny butterfly from Tami's Ticket Trio to the bottom left corner.
