Gina K Inspiration Hop Day 1

The Design Team for Gina K. Designs welcomes you to another fabulous Inspiration Blog Hop!!! Hopefully you will be inspired by all the 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 design team is using Pretty Patterns and Grand Tags.  Here is my card using Pretty Patterns:
Definitely choose the clear stamps for this set because it makes lining up the patterns a breeze.  Melanie went all out combining classic patterns (like the ever popular Chevrons) and several unique designs to compose this set. It is a must-have set and I cannot wait to play with it some more.  For my card, I stamped the fun circle design (long stamp) twice vertically and then paper pieced some of the circles.  I used the single circle from the set to add an exaggerated period after the stamped thank you (from Stamp TV set-Hello Sunshine)

And, here is my card using Grand Tags:
This set coordinates perfectly with a Spellbinders set.  However, it is very simple to just cut around the edge of the label as well. That is what I did for this card.  I was really smitten with this piano label and all the "grand" sentiments.

Looking for more inspiration??  Check out all the amazing designs and inspiration on these blogs today:

Love the pink & green! I would fine cutting out the dots too inaccurate to be pretty! I always get a flat side. Maybe a punch would work. Anyway nice cards.
