Inspiration Hop, Day 4: Believe in Yourself and Great Sayings
Good morning! The Design Team for Gina K. Designs welcomes you to another fabulous Inspiration Blog Hop! Get ready to be inspired with many beautiful ideas for our newest stamp sets and papers. 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.
The first stamp set we have is the limited edition stamp duo "Believe in Yourself", available for free this month in honor of 3 year anniversary of StampTV, when you place an order of $35 or more through March 31st! Don't ya just love free stuff? And how easy Gina makes things to get it? ;)
I loved this Parisian Garden print so I stamped the butterfly on it several times at angles to create a border, then filled in small sections of the wings with Copic RV89 for extra pop.
The I stamped the butterfly on White Pure Luxury and used the shades form the DP to color. Trace these areas with a little coordinating glitter pen for extra sparkle.
Greeting is stamped on Lovely Lavender and base is Black Onyx. (Yes, I totally want to redo the "BE YOU" part to be like Gina, lol!) Butterfly is adhered with pop dots.
Next we have the Free with Three set "Great Sayings", I just love big quotes for cards! This set contains three large greetings and a versatile happy flower, great for making clean and simple designs.
Here is my sample (unfortunately on the sample I made last week, I used the only sentiment in the set that had a little typo, oops! haven't redone the card yet, but rest assured per Gina's post everyone who earns the free set will have the correct quote, see the full set above for corrected quote! :) I used the damask patterns from the Petals and Wings I used the previous two days, and I just love how this pack contains both whimsical, cutesy prints and but also delicate and elegant ones like on this card!
Card also uses Pure Luxury Black Onyx and White, and is accented with rounded corner punch and Pure Luxury button.
