Gina K Inspiration Blog Hop Day 1

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 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: Stately Flowers 4 and Ticket Trio.  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! Love having a choice!

Here are my samples:
The first card uses Stately Flowers 4. I love all the gorgeous flower/greeting combinations in this set. I stamped the flower with Memento tuxedo black ink and colored it with Copic markers:
 

Next, I have a card using Ticket Trio.  I used this set in a different way....I kept looking at the stamps and seeing the tickets as doors and windows.  So, I folded cardstock over and then just cut the top like a house.  Then covered it with paper and stamping:

Check out all the amazing inspiration on these blogs:
 Thanks for stopping by!
