Gina K Inspiration Hop Day 2

Hello again!   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 we are working with the new sets: Tropical Nature and I Do!

Here are my samples:
The first card features I Do!
I folded over a printed shaped frame to create the card base.  I stamped the fella in tuxedo black ink (Memento) to make a fun anniversary or wedding day card.  I added a little flower made out of twine on his lapel.  I stamped the 4 ever sentiment in Fired Brick ink (Ranger).

Next, I used the "+" and "=" from the I Do! set and coupled them with the images and sentiment from Tropical Nature to create this equation:
I stamped the pineapple and then added a little drink straw with a black pen and then stamped the trees. Since I was using clear stamps I was able to separate off the "in the sun" sentiment from the rest of the sentiment so I could stamp it by itself.  (This is one of the benefits of clear stamps...you can make a quick vertical cut to use it in pieces and then you can place it on the block back together to use as a whole sentiment again!)
Fun sets! ugh?

Check out all the amazing designs and inspiration from the rest of the team:
 Thanks for stopping by!
