Inspiration Hop Day 3: Free with Three One in a Million




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 showcasing One in a Million, the newest Free with Three set. These flowers are so easy breezy fun and perfect for kids or your best girl friend! To go with the "one in a million" sentiment, I kept the coloring simple and made the one red flower stand out from the bunch, also adding an adhesive rhinestone on its center. DP is Pure Luxury Red Carpet designer paper pack. (See how it goes with everything?) ;)

I used a back marker to ink up just the "you" and stamped on Pure Luxury Innocent Pink paper, then free cut a little arrow to pop up. TIP: Don't be intimidated to try cutting your own shapes when you need them! The imperfections often add charm and the "handmade flair" to your projects.  You can do it!
Ocean Mist die cut is Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles. Base is Pure Luxury Jelly Bean Green.
 
Now check out more ideas and inspiration from our fabulous team:

Have a fabulous day!  Remember, you are one in a million!
