Gina K Inspiration Blog Hop Day 2


Welcome to the Gina K Designs Inspiration Blog Hop, Day 2! We hope to inspire you to create with the new Gina K Releases! 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 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 we are sharing projects using Simple Flowers and Stamp it Big! 2 .  All of these sets can now be purchased in the What's New section of the Gina K Designs store!

Here are my cards for today:

The first card features Simple Flowers-


For this card, I stamped the flower designs using blue rasberry, sweet corn and passionate pink ink and then added the large hi sentiment (Stamp It Big! 2) in black ink and omitted inking the dot over the I so I could replace it by stamping a flower in the set using sweet corn ink.

Next up, a few projects from Stamp It Big! 2:
I have shown many samples using this set already (scroll down to previous posts to see more!) but I also wanted to show a different use for the house.  I created a little box and made the house a school house for a teacher gift (perfect for a gift card!)-

I masked the heart by placing a piece of post-it note over the heart on the house front before inking. After inking the stamp, I removed the post-it (*use a tweezer because it will be inky!) and then stamped the house:


I drew in a rectangular box and then drew a line down the middle for the doors.  Cut the inside line and the line along the top to make them open:)  I stamped the "thanks" from the set on the roof and I added the little pencil from Back to School to make it more school oriented.
I adhered the house right to the front of the little box I created.  (Cut a piece of cardstock 6" by 6".  Score at the 2", 4" mark and then turn 90 degrees and score again at 2" and 4".  Cut slits in either end of box, fold and adhere.  Here is a basic tutorial, just change size to the numbers above!)
I finished off the box with a little handle.

Next, a simple design using Stamp It Big!2.  This card also uses two flowers from Stamp it Big! and one flower from the Spring Parade Stamp TV Kit:

Next, a graphic card using Stamp it Big! 2!


And finally, a cute little wedding card using Stamp it Big!2 and the always/forever sentiments from Stamp it Big!:

Just a demonstration on how versatile that house is!  I cannot wait to see all the clever ways people use it!
