Gina K December release inspiration blog hop: Day 3


Hi everyone!  Welcome to Day 3 of the Gina K Designs DT Inspiration Blog Hop where we hope to inspire you with many beautiful ideas for the sets released in December! As you hop through the blogs, make sure to leave a comment on each because we will choose a few random commenters and they will win a grab bag of Gina's products!! To see the full list of winners check the Big News forum at Stamp TV a couple of days after the hops.

Today we are spotlighting the new stamp set Lots of Thanks, Illustrated by Beth
 and Celebration Diva, Illustrated by Debbie

 First up is a fun card using Lots of Thanks.  I combined a couple of the sentiments and accent stamps to make this fun arrangement.  At first I was layering strips of pattern paper together and then realized there was a piece in the pack that already had strips in it.  Much easier -lol!  I used the Black Onyx GKD Color Companions ink and love it's perfect crisp results.
Next up is a New Year's card using Celebration Diva. Isn't she sassy with her frilly dress and glass of champagne?  I think she looks pretty in pink and silver!  I outlined the sentiment panels with a silver glitter pen and used some fun sparkly silver dots as accents.
Ready for the hop?  Check out all the amazing designs and inspiration:
  Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the hop!  Here are a couple close up pictures.
