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 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.

I hope you've enjoyed hopping with our design team this week! Thank you for all the "love" you've left for us!  We love our illustrators and have a great time stamping projects to share with you!  Today we're sharing projects with Tami's Perfect Plaids, and the One Free with Three, Snow One Like You.


After lots of Christmas card-making, I thought I was entirely OUT of red card stock *gasp!* so I gathered together all of my scraps and made this little scrapling...and then I found ONE full sheet.  ;)  Time to make an order ASAP!

This layout is a mini version (the base is ~3 x 4 inches) of the sketch I hosted on Paper Craft Planet last week.  I used Tami's Perfect Plaids to make the horizontal accent, the little dots of ink added with a stylus.  It reminds me of warm flannel...the sleeve and cuff of Santa's pj's might look just like this!

Notes:
Perfect Plaids, in clear or rubber
Carta Bella Winter Fun designer paper
Clearsnap Colorbox inks
button
jute thread



I used more scraps of red card stock (yep, I'm hoarding that one last sheet!) for my second card, with a beautiful bright red cardinal singing a Christmas serenade from the "front porch" of his snowy winter home!  That pop of bright red really stands out in contrast to the muted warm grey weathered wood and soft, snowflake-sprinkled sky.

Notes:
Snow One Like You, in clear or rubber
Memento Tuxedo Black ink
Copic markers
Basic Grey Serenade designer paper
Spellbinders circle dies
Polar White Flower Soft
music stickers
red grosgrain ribbon
red rhinestone
