Day 4: A Little Something and 3 Darling Divas

Good morning! The Gina K. Designs Team welcomes you to the final day of fabulous Inspiration Blog Hops this week! We hope you are inspired with many beautiful ideas, and as you hop through our blogs, make sure to leave a comment on each of them because Gina 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.

First up, we have more Darling Divas from Debbie Corbari!  I was so instantly charmed by this little couple Mr. and Mrs. Diva! I must say, I'm in a stage of life where I don't seem to know many people getting married, but I am excited about this image for anniversaries, no matter how many years, keep the romance alive and never forget that wedding day and how crazy the bride and groom were for each other!  Think I may just leave this out on my hubby's nightstand... :)  Actually looks a lot like him, but he did not pick me up at our wedding ;)
I outlined the edges of her dress and slippers with Sakura silver glitter pen, Cinderella style!
Don't forget to add a big ol' rhinestone to bling up her married hand!
White and Black Onyx Pure Luxury cardstock, Gina K. Designs Love Letters designer paper.

Oh, and I *really* love this trench coat on Rainy Day Diva!! Paper pieced with Gina K. Hello Sunshine patterned paper pack. Bring on the rain!! 

 Finally, we have the new Free with Three set, A Little Something, free *this month only* with the purchase of any three stamp sets valued at 19.95 or more.
(Three divas or duos count as one set toward this promotion)
What's more festive than brightly wrapped presents?  I love how you can color these to match any season or holiday.  This a very versatile free set!  Don't forget to outline the details with just bit of glitter for sparkle!  Cardstock is Pure Luxury White, Black Onyx, Passionate Pink and patterned paper is from the Gina K. Designs Birthday Hoot designer paper pack.  BTW, looks like this is one of the most pinned cards I shared for our release, and I suspect it has something to do with the curling ribbon!  To do this, cut a long piece, arrange, and tack down the curls with some glue dots and the bottom edge with Scor-Tape.  That's it! Easy peasy!

 Here are the stamps we are showcasing today:


Now please enjoy continuing the hop with our Gina K. Designs design team!  Thanks for visiting!
