Inspiration Hops, Day 3: Lots of Thanks and Celebration Diva

 Good morning!  The Design Team for Gina K. Designs welcomes you to our final fabulous Inspiration Blog Hop for December! Gina and the Design Team will inspire you with many beautiful ideas for our new sets, and as you hop through our 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 StampTV a few days after the hops.

Today we are sharing samples with Beth Silaika's Lots of Thanks.  My first thought, when I saw the checklist, was to frame it up with one of the other cute thanks!  I used different colors to fill the boxes and used tiny rhinestones instead of checks add a bit of interest and bling. Inks are Gina K. Cherry Red, Red Hot, Prickly Pear, Grass Green, and Turquoise Sea.  Cardstock is Pure Luxury White and Black Onyx.


Finally, we have Debbie Corbari's darling Celebration Diva!  Dang, this girl makes me wanna party!  I colored her dress with Copics C-3, C-5, and C-7 to create an ombre and outlined the bottom with a silver glitter pen.  I used Carolyn's Elegant Flourishes stamped in Gina K. Black Onyx, Moonlit Fog and White ink to create the background on Moonlit Fog Pure Luxury cardstockBase is Black Onyx.





Now please enjoy more samples from our team!  Don't forget to leave comments for more chances to win a grab of Gina K. Designs goodness!  Hope you enjoyed our hops this week!

The rhinestones definitely add a bit of bling. I love the black, moonlight fog and white together & the pearl adds a nice dimension also
