Gina K Inspiration Hop Day 1

Hello........and welcome to the Inspiration Hop for Gina K Designs!

And as you hop through the participating 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 Gina K. Designs products! To see the full list of winners check the Big News forum at Stamp TV a few days after the hops.

Today, the team is sharing projects using Lots of Letters and Warm Woolen Mittens.  Here are my projects-

First a card using Lots of Letters:
I love these lower case letters.  They are fun and trendy and you can make the perfect sentiment for any card.  I chose to make a Valentine for this card and stamped the circle designs in Memento tuxedo black ink before embossing the letters in white on top.  For the center heart, I stamped the outline and then added the metal heart.  Lovin' these letters and all the ways you can mix and match them with their borders.

Next is a card featuring Warm Woolen Mittens.  This set is just fantastic for winter greetings.  And I love that the patterns in the set can be used for all occasions. (You will see them making an appearance a few times this week:)

I cut the mittens from Ivory cardstock using my Silhouette and then stamped the patterns on the cut outs using Memento teal zeal ink.  This allowed me to create a perfect set of mittens to hang on my card.  For the sentiment, I did the same--printed the outline of the sentiment using Becky's cut file and then stamped the sentiment on it.

Next, I have a shaped card using Warm Woolen Mittens.  This time I focused on the backgrounds to create the bottom section of the card:
 
I stamped the sentiment using before adding some wooden trees over the patterns.  Finally, I added some rhinestones along the center stamped pattern.

Last, I have a super simple card featuring Lots of Letters and Warm Woolen Mittens:
For this card, I stamped the pattern from Warm Woolen Mittens and then stamped the sentiment using Lady Bug Memento ink on Ivory cardstock.  I added the string behind the front panel of the card to string an ornament.  Easy! (Although it is not an easy card to mail, it would be easy to put into a box with a gift!)

That is it from me today!  Check out all the amazing inspiration on these blogs:

Thanks for stopping by!  See you tomorrow with more Gina K projects!
