Gina K Preview Day 1: Inspiration Mosaic


inspiration lemonade

I’m excited to share a card I made using the new set Inspiration Mosaic, another background stamp illustrated by Melanie Muenchinger for Gina K. Designs!  

It is a clean, fresh & fun design that will hold countless hours of stamping opportunities for everyone!!  For my card, since I decided to paper-piece the WHOLE background (I stamped it on cardstock and cut each piece out and stuck it in a baggie for future use.  Once I chose the papers I wanted to use from Basic Grey’s new Lemonade papers (will be available in Gina’s store with this release!) I cut each piece according to where I wanted it placed.  If you look closely, there is a thin brown line separating each piece (that is the natural outline of the stamp, I wanted it to show).  In the set, there is a great collection of other shapes, standard sentiments such as the thanks I used here, and inspirational sentiments that are just awesome! 

For more projects made with the stamps previewed today, be sure to check out our other Senior Design Team Member's Blogs:
Gina, Cathy, Emily, Erika, Kurtis, Jessica, Lee, Lynn, Melanie, and Theresa

Tthen check out our Center Stage Spotlight girls joining us with Previews today: JenMarie Taylor has a preview using Inspiration Mosaic stamp set and Sue Walsh has one using Elegant Post.

Lastly, I want to let you know the release party is scheduled for this Thursday, July 31st at the member company forum for Gina K. on SCS 7:00-10:00 p.m. CST.  Hope to see YOU there!!

Love the paper-piecing -- exactly what the quilter in me would do with this stamp. I should STOP the hop right now!!! NOT good for my budget. Thanks for lovely inspiration.
