Gina K. Inspiration Day 3: Wild Blossoms and You've Got a Friend in Me

Good morning! The Cast and Crew for Gina K. Designs welcomes you back for our final Inspiration Hop for our September Release!  Enjoy the gorgeous inspiration samples from the team with exclusive sets Gina used at the Bella conference which can now be yours, too, like you were there! :) Be sure to comment on each blog for your chance to win an awesome grab bag of GKD goodies! !!   To see who won, check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hop.
Love the sweet images and sentiments in this set in You've Got a Friend in Me! (Can't help but think of "Toy Story" whenever I read or hear that! In the best way possible!) Trees, greeting and twine (from Triple Play Holiday) are stamped in Dark Chocolate, and the stitched row on both layers (love this stamped stitching as an accent, but also to suggest grass) is stamped in Fresh Asparagus.  Leaves are colored with Spectrum Noir markers, OR1, GB8, DR3, GB4, and CG2. I added a drop shadow (BG3) to the twine for dimension and little heart charm (also from Triple Play Holiday), stamped in Red Hot. Cardstock is Pure Luxury White, Kraft and Dark Chocolate.


Next up, we have Wild Blossoms!  Love this single layer card with it's romantic flowering vine!  I stamped the vine in Dark Sage and stamped off to create the lgihter vine.  I two step stamped the different blossoms in Peach Bellini ink and added just a few lines of Spectrum Noir to accent them.  Greeting is stamped in Dark Chocolate. I added some Wink of Stella glitter pen to the blossoms and sponged with the peach and sage inks.  One little adhesive rhinestone, and that's it!

Ready for more creation with these sets! Please enjoy!  Thanks for visiting today!
