Gina K. Designs Inspiration Blog Hop Day 3

Hello my friends! Welcome to Day 3 of our Inspirational Blog Hop showcasing the new sets just released from Gina K. Designs. Today, we have 3 wonderful sets: Perfect Pennants, Cute as a Bug & Lovely Labels 3


Perfect Pennants. This wonderful set illustrated by Tami Mayberry is fantastic.
I started my card with a piece of Wild Dandelion CS. I sponged clouds on White CS. I matted this piece with a slightly bigger piece of Bubblegum Pink CS and added some stitches. I created the grass cutting a piece of Green PP from the STampTV Kit, sponged the tips with Green Ink and added to card with Scor-Tape. I stamped the banners on PP from StampTV Kit, cut them out and glue them on CS, using mini scallop scissors cut the border. Make little holes using a punch and add Twine, add it to card front and add silver brads. Add Stickles to banner. Stamp sentiment.


Cute as a Bug. This set is illustrated by Rupa Shevde, and it is fun and super cute.
I started my card with a piece of White CS, Created a front with Wild Dandelion, added a smaller piece of White CS, punched one side, added PP, an embossed piece of White CS and added stitches. Die-cut a piece of Wild Dandelion CS, dry embossed and ink all edges, added to card. Stamp image on White CS, colored it with Copic Markers, stamped and colored and extra image, cut it out and added to card with foam tape. Stamp sentiment,die-cut, emboss and stencil it, added to card. Finally, added a couple of Yellow Buttons.
For this card I used the sketch from  "The Sweet Stop"


Lovely Labels 3: This set is illustrated by Nina Brackett.
I started my card with a piece of Kraft CS (5" square), matted a piece of Grass Green and Ivory CS, added a strip of PP and added stitches. Die-cut and emboss a piece of Grass Green using Label 3 Nestabilities. Stamped the label on White CS in Crushed Olive Distress Ink and cut it out, the sentiment was stamped in Vintage Photo Distress ink, die-cut, embossed and stenciled with Circle Nestabilities. Added to card with Foam Tape. Tie around some Jute twine.
