Gina K Inspiration Hop Day 3: Elegant Elements & By the Sea


pouch & card
Thanks for stopping by for our Day 3 hop for Gina K!  Up for today are 2 more fabulous stamp sets that I’m sure you will like!  The first one is Elegant Elements, our One Free with 3 stamp set.  That means when you purchase 3 stamp sets, you can add this set for FREE to your cart!  I made a very clean & simple card, staying with a black & white theme to match the little pleated zippered pouch I made a few weeks ago (during the Friday Night Sew In).  I love how those circles somewhat mimic the fabric I used on the bottom of the pouch.  I made a quick ribbon rose and glued it to the middle of the pouch.  Here is a tutorial I found for the ribbon I made (I learned it by Martha Stewart, but I could not find her tutorial.  I used  sentiment for the card from the Vintage Chic StampTV set since Elegant Elements does not have sentiments in it. 
stand out
This card is one I shared during the release party, I wanted to use a sentiment from the Vintage Chic StampTV kit and just one element from this set to ‘stand out’ – this stamp was real easy to line up and stamp pretty evenly without using a stamp positioner.  I like how this card turned out!  I used white, Black Onyx and Turquoise Sea pure luxury cardstock.
aa- New One Free with 3!- Elegant Elements
Here is the Elegant Elements set in its entirety –awesome huh??



fathers day
Next up is another set by the very talented Theresa Momber. By the Sea is a set that will be great to make all those masculine cards with!  I made a Father’s Day card using the lighthouse, birds and sentiment.  It was real easy to make this scene, just adding some soft blue clouds, a shoreline in the distance and some sponged water.    I used White &  Smoky Slate pure luxury cardstock on this card.
a- By the Sea
Here is a picture of all the stamps that come in the set which costs $23.95.
Here is a list of designers participating in today’s hop- make sure you leave a comment on each of the blogs because tomorrow we will choose two random winners from all of the comments who will each get a free stamp set of their choice valued at up to $24.95!

Amazing match for the little pouch! Both cards are terrific Donna!

Riette on 11:29 AM CDT said...

Beautiful and very impressed .. sewing talent as well! I like how you lifted the element out with a different color. I'm liking this set more and more!

Monika/Buzsy on 11:31 AM CDT said...

Fabulous cards Donna. Love the pretty colors you chose and the first card matching the cute pouch! :o) Sorry for not visiting more ofter... life's been crazy.

Barb on 11:38 AM CDT said...

so very, very pretty. Love the designs!

Michelle on 11:42 AM CDT said...

All so lovely. The pouch and matching card would be a terrific girlfriend gift. The stand out card screams 'Middle Schooler' to me. They often need that gentle reminder to stop trying to be like everyone else. Your card would be a sweet way to say 'be yourself'.

Scrapacat on 11:44 AM CDT said...

Wow. WOW! I love all of these. Great sponge work on the third one - great sea and sky!

Mrs Ham on 12:10 PM CDT said...

Wow!! Donna. You really worked those stamp sets. I love all of these.

Thanks for sharing three great cards today Donna! I can't believe how perfectly your card coordinates with your sewn bag. The waves and clouds look wonderful on your By the Sea card. Finally, the simplicity of the last card is perfect with the sentiment.
