Gina K Inspiration Hop Day 1: Basket Additions 2 and Lacy Borders



The Design Team for Gina K. Designs welcomes you to another fabulous Inspiration Blog Hop!!! Gina and the Design Team will inspire you with many beautiful ideas! And as you hop through their blogs, make sure to leave a comment on each of them because we will choose a few random comments and those stampers will each win a grab bag of deeply etched, pre-cut Gina K. Designs stamps! To see the full list of winners check the Big News forum at Stamp TV a couple of days after the hops!!
birthday basket
First up is a card I made for Jen’s Deconstructed sketch 48 using Melanie’s Basket Additions 2 which coordinates with Spring Basket and Holiday Basket (used the holiday basket to make this colorful Birthday Basket).  I used My Mind’s Eye Fine & Dandy pattern paper which equally matches the colorful & fun feel to this card.  In Melanie’s signature style, with each new set she comes up with, it increases the value of the original sets so you have endless creations to make intermingling them!  The new die set I have is Spellbinders Labels 23 and I used White, Sweet Mango and Turquoise Sea pure luxury cardstock and added some coordinating buttons!  The banner is paper-pieced with the fine & dandy papers and the image is colored with copic markers.
Happily ever after
Next up is a card I made using the new set Lacy Borders and yes, I went traditional with the white lace!  I stamped it on the smoky slate pure luxury cardstock and layered some organdy ribbon over it then put some silver pearls on top of that.  What I really love is the simple Spellbinders Labels 4 for the greeting with the top and bottom embossed with my Kassie’s Brocade folder.
Check out all the amazing designs and inspiration:
Thanks for stopping by!  Hope you will come back on Monday, Apr 30 as our inspiration hops will continue! Pin It
