Elegant Post Blog Hop with Gina K. Designs


pretty birdcage

As promised, tonight I bring you some samples made with the new Elegant Post set, illustrated by Nina Brackett for Gina K. Designs. Nina has also designed several digital papers to coordinate with her set: Grungy Elegance and Simple Elegance.
For my card, I used the new Basic Grey Lemonade pad and Pure Luxury Ivory cardstock *(Base weight for the card base and layering weight for the focal image). Ribbon from my stash. I used Mojo sketch 96 for this card layout.

My second card I made today, using the sketch at StampTV this week, hosted by Cat. I love it that on any given day there is a challenge you can participate in to get the creative juices flowing (and it doesn’t hurt that you can try to win some free stamps from Gina K. too!) I used Basic Grey paper on this card too, Bittersweet.

Here is a close up of the new copic atyou spica glitter pen sparkle.

As usual, we have our Sr. Design Team members to dazzle you with their creations: Gina K., Cathy, Emily, Erika, Jessica, Kurtis, Lee, Melanie and Theresa. Nina has asked her friends Silke and Melissa to join us on the hop.

Lastly, be sure to check out our Center Stage Design Team members for July: Brenda, Shannon and Sue Walsh and prepare to be wowed!

Hope you have a great weekend!!
