Gina K Inspiration Hop Day 1: Falling For You StampTV kit


tweet thing

Welcome to Day 1 (of 3!) inspiration hops with the Gina K Design Team!  Hope you made it to the party last night, if not…maybe next month.  But, you can always check out what you missed by clicking on the party link!

The first card I’m sharing uses the sweet whimsical bird from the set, which you can color so elaborately and coordinate with bright cardstock like I did here.  I love that I had all the matching buttons too! 

close up bird

Here is a close up of the bird, so you can see all the glittery shine from the Sakura Glitter pens I used. I love it!  I popped the little bird on the branch with some foam tape.  You’re going to love all the fun images in this new kit!  You will be able to make so many wonderful cards & projects with it.  It costs $49.95 but its value is priceless like all the STV kits!

pleasant treesNext up is a card I shared at the party last night which is one of my favorites, the happy frog and trio of bold trees.  The sentiment in the set is my favorite, such a great play on words!  I made this card very clean & simple by tracing the inside of one of my rectangle nestability shapes with a black pen and paper-pieced my trees on the inside with the sentiment stamped in the center.  Then, I paper-pieced the frog (and his belly) with coordinating papers and popped him on the outer corner with foam tape.  Simple but packs a little punch! 

To the right is all the stamps you get in this kit – fun huh??

As you hop through the designer’s blogs, make sure you leave comments on each one for a chance to win a free stamp set of your choice valued up to $24.95! We will randomly choose two winners so the more comments you leave, the more chances you have to win.  Gina K will announce the winners on her blog.
