Inspiration Hop, Day 3: StampTV Kit Petals and Wings


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 their 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 featuring samples using the newest StampTV Kit Petals and Wings, what a terrific kit! See that link for a complete description of the all the fun contents.

Card base is Pure Luxury White and gingham and quilted print is from the coordinating Petals and Wings pack (included in the kit, but can also be purchased separately!)

Piercing detail is made with with the Scor-Buddy and Scor-Bug embossing tool. Ribbon is Stitched Black Pure Luxury.
I stamped the balloon four times: once on the Ocean Mist background to create the sky, once on White CS for the clouds, and twice on the different patterns to piece over the original image. Use pop dots to adhere for more dimension.

Now please check out all the amazing designs and inspiration:Have fun hopping, see you back here tomorrow for our final day of hops!
