Gina K. Inspiration Blog Hop Day 2

Hello my friends, welcome to Day 2 of our Inspiration Blog Hop. Today, the DT has 3 wonderful sets to showcase "Bring the Bling", Warm with Love" and "Make a Splash"

Bring the Bling: This new set ilustrated by Melanie Muenchinger is fantastic to add the perfect touches to your card or page. For my card, make a card base with White CS, offset Kraft CS and PP from the new StampTV Kit, ink all edges, add stitches, then stamped the bling image on the Patterned Paper in Antique Linen Distress Ink, then added some Liquid Pearls, set it to dry and finished my card adding the bow and sentiment from the new StampTV Kit.



Warm with Love: This set is beautiful and illustrated by Theresa Momber. I started dry embossing the front of my card with Dots & Spots folder. I stamped the image on White CS in Tuxedo Black Ink, color it with Copic Markers. Die-cut, emboss and stencil with Label 3 Nestabilities, Die- cut and emboss a piece of PP. Add PP to front card, Tie ribbon around and add image with foam tape. Stamp sentiment and adhere to card. As a final touches I add a couple of pins and pearls.


Make a Splash: This set is so cute, illustrated by Asela Hopkins: This card is super cute and easy to make. Make your card base from White CS. Create the waves with White CS (layering weight) and big scissors, cut the scallops, they don't have to be perfect. Cut 3 different sizes, distress the pieces with Faded Jeans and Broken China Distress Inks. Adhere them to card with Scor-tape. Stamp little fishes and color them with Copic Markers. Stamp whale in a piece of White CS. Color it with Copic Markers and Add it to card with foam tape. Add a little bit of Waterfall Stickles on the spout. Create a template and sponges clouds. Stamp sentiment and add sun (Make it with the Cricut Machine)using Wild Dandelion CS
