Gina K Inspiration Hop--Day 2



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. Designs products! To see the full list of winners check the Big News forum at Stamp TV a few days after the hops.


Thanks for all of your wonderful comments yesterday!  They are cherished!  :)  Today our team is sharing projects featuring two more sets, Elegant Florals, and Sentimental Holidays.

I love Theresa's new set, Elegant Florals.  This bird of paradise truly does make me think of living in Hawaii, and that makes me smile!  I used about 15 colors of Copics to color this, and I love how it turned out!  I kept the layout super simple because that flower needs to be center stage with no distractions!

Notes:
Elegant Florals, clear or rubber
Pure Luxury card stock
Memento Tuxedo Black and Cantaloupe inks
Copic markers
Spellbinders Labels 10 die
Kaiser Craft rhinestones


This little gift card wallet was a fun project to make.  The sentiment is from Beth's set, Sentimental Holidays, and it pairs so nicely with the silhouette of Bethlehem from City of David.  The star is actually two stars of different sizes...one from each set...heat-embossed in two different colors.

I wanted to echo the shapes of the city skyline, so I made this an arched card. It was nice to be able to use another sentiment and image on the inside.

Notes:
Sentimental Holidays, clear or rubber
Pure Luxury card stock
Coluzzle oval and blade
City of David, part of the Merry Little Christmas kit, clear or rubber
Memento Cantaloupe, Desert Sand, Elderberry, Grape Jelly, Love Letter, and Tangelo inks
Gingerale Smooch Spritz
Kaiser Craft jewels

Check out all the amazing designs and inspiration:
