Gina K. inspiration hop: Perfect Pennants, Cute as a Bug & Lovely Labels 3


polka dot pennants

Welcome to our Gina K inspiration hop for March’s release!  For my first card, I used Tami’s Perfect Pennants set, which coordinates nicely with the Spellbinders pennants dies!  But, you don’t have to have the dies to make fun & easy cards like I have here, since they are straight lines, they are easily trimmed with a cutter or scissors!  I made a banner with the large polka dot pennants, stamping them with versamark, sprinkling with clear embossing powder and heat setting with a heat fun.  I strung them up with some yellow cotton thread and finished them off with some turquoise buttons as accents!   

beehive.

My next card was a barrel of fun to make – a bee hive with the cute bee from Cute as a Bug by Rupa Shevde!  It was real easy to make the beehive, I just cut strips of cardstock, rounded the corners, sponged the edges for depth and stacked them on top of each other.  Then I die cut an oval and sliced off the bottom for the door! I put lots of stickles on the bee’s wings and had to put some googly eyes on him – he’s too cute!

green & ivory labels

My last card is one of my favorites – uses Nina’s Lovely Labels 3 set, which coordinate with Spellbinders label dies 18, 20 and 21.  But again, you don’t have to have all the dies in order to enjoy using the set!  I don’t have the die that coordinates with this stamp but it was very easy to cut it out and I don’t think it looks badly at all!  Do you like the green & ivory flower at the bottom of the label stamp?  I made that!  It was so easy – I’ve been getting back into sewing and thinking of ways to incorporate with my stamping!

Here is a list of all the designers who have awesome creations to share with us today – be sure to leave a comment on each blog because we are going to draw three randomly chosen winners from all of the blog comments who will each get a stamp set of their choice valued at up to $24.95!

The beehive is a great idea, I seen someone use a bee as a baby shower theme - the beehive (a little larger) would make a perfect guest book cover or just guest book.
