Gina K Designs Inspiration Hop Day 3

*This is my second post of the day.  If you are looking for The Twinery/Rubbernecker Hop, look below this post!

The Design Team for Gina K. Designs welcomes you to another fabulous Inspiration Blog Hop!!! As you hop through the 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 deeply etched, pre-cut Gina K. Designs stamps! To see the full list of winners check the Big News forum at Stamp TV a couple of days after the hops!!

Today the Gina K Design team are sharing projects created with these new releases:  Hello Sunshine StampTV kit, Birthday Greetings and the New One Free with 3- Life's a Beach. 
I used the pre-cut Rubber sets for my samples but Gina K IS NOW OFFERING you a choice of Deeply Etched Rubber or Clear for the stamp sets!

Just like most of you---I am positively swamped this time of the year.  My card making time is literally an hour or two a week.  We are running from one sport to another, to ballet, to graduations, birthday parties, etc.  But....I have a real NEED for cards during this time of year.  So, when I saw the new Stamp TV kit- Hello Sunshine- I had an idea.

I thought that if I could make a clean and simple card that lent itself to many different occasions, I might be able to mass produce it so that I can use it for birthdays, sympathy cards, thank you notes.  And that is just what I did!  Here is the card I created:
I started with Pure Luxury white cardstock.  I  stamped the large flower with Rose Bud Memento dew drop ink and then stamped off the image on a post it note.  I layered the post it over the flower to stamp the stem in Cottage Ivy dew drop ink on an angle, as shown.  Then, I took a black artist pen and drew a line across the bottom.  Finally, I stamped the sentiment above the line. 
I rounded the bottom two corners and added a black pearl to the center of the flower.  Truly...simple. 
To make this card a simple-to-make and easy-to-mail card---you can add a flat black metal dot to the center of the flower.

Here is a set of cards. Note: I left the sentiment off the ones lying down so I can add the appropriate one before mailing:

 Now head on over to these blog's to see some beautiful creations made with these sets:
 Thanks for stopping by!
