Elegant Verses Blog Hop with Gina K. Designs


elegant hop

I’m so glad you’ve stopped by my blog today because it’s time to share some inspiration with you using Nina Brackett’s new set Elegant Verses {companion sentiment set to Elegant Post}. On my card, I used pretty new papers Earth Love by Cosmo Cricket, a new 6-inch paper pad. The light is stamped on vellum cardstock with white stazon ink and embossed on the back side with an embossing tool on a mat, being careful to not push too hard & rip the paper. I colored in the back lightly with a few markers. Then I put a few jump rings from the sentiment to the top of the light. Sorry about the crooked brown satin ribbon I added (lol). Do you like the Labels 7 from Spellbinders I stamped the sentiment on? I love that it looks like an open book. I was imagining this as an open Bible, which is so fitting for this sentiment. I also used a sketch from a new blog called Crazy for Challenges; there’s a great group of ladies on that team!

Your first stop should be the illustrator herself, Nina Brackett, who I’m sure will have some wonderful creations! Nina has asked her very talented friend Silke Ledlow to join us in the hop too.

And the following GKD ladies will have something to share with you too:
Gina Krupsky
Carolyn King
Emily Giovanni
Erika Martin
Jessica Fick
Lee Murphy
Melanie Muenchinger
Theresa Momber

Hope you have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by! Say a prayer or wish me luck (whichever you prefer; I have my first Algebra test Tuesday afternoon!

Very nice, Donna, very very nice. The vellum lamp looks so elegant. I have the Labels 7 on my wish list just because it looks like an open book, so I totally love your idea.
