Flowers and Frames Hop!

Good morning! The Cast and Crew for Gina K Designs welcomes you to another fabulous Inspiration Blog Hop! This blog hop is for the brand spanking new StampTV Flowers and Frames kit. This kit, along with several other sets you've been waiting for, will be back in stock tomorrow for you to order, and we are hopping up and down with excitement, ready to share some new ideas!  Please enjoy today's samples and then browse the store for other crafty items you need so you'll be ready to throw this kit in your cart tomorrow starting at 8 AM Central, ready to head to checkout!


I got so much wonderful feedback from one of my last videos about mixing up one of my sets with a StampTV kit, so since this hop is Flowers & Frames, I thought it would be appropriate to mix it with Triple Play Frame, since both are back in stock tomorrow, woo hoo!  I made a trellis scene by placing a mask over my frame and sponging some clouds with Gina K. Ocean Mist, then adding the die cut stamped flowers (Gina K. Innocent Pink, Passionate Pink, and Cherry Red) and leaves (Gina K. Grass Green and Fresh Asparagus) around the frame's borders, as if the vine is climbing. I love this look!  (and love that I didn't have to come up with a sketch!)  Frame is stamped in Gina K. Moonlit Fog and I added three adhesive pearls to the lower corner echo the circles in the frame. Sentiment is stamped in Gina K.Black Onyx and cardstock is Gina K. Pure Luxury Innocent Pink and White.

Ready for more creations? Just click on the links below for more kit inspiration! As you hop through our blogs today, make sure to leave a comment on each of them because we will choose a a  random comment and that stamper will win a grab bag of Gina K. Designs products! Check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hop to see who won.

I really like how you made your Triple Play Frame into a trellis, and also how you used your Wild at Heart and Wild Flowers sets. I don't have the TPF yet, but I do have WaH and WF, now if I can just figure out what colors I want to buy (and decide how to finance the purchase) . . . .
