Gina K Inspiration Hop Day 3: You Go, Girl and Pleasant Plurals


rope

Welcome to our last day of inspiration hops for the new Gina K release!  My first card uses the sassy gal from Tami’s set You Go Girl!  There are so many different sayings to appeal to your girlfriends so you can send them cards for many occasions!  I paper-pieced her outfit with papers from Cosmo Cricket Upcycle pad.  The chocolate brown layer is embossed with Swiss Dots.  I added some hemp twine to mimic the rope in the sentiment! 


from our home

My next card uses the new Pleasant Plurals, which you can get for Free with the purchase of 3 stamp sets!!  I used the house image from the Wishing You Joy StampTV kit.  I used the snowflake embossing folder on the top of the card for ‘snow’ and for the ground cover, I randomly used Stardust Stickles and the sentiment is from the Pleasant Plurals set.  The card base is Lipstick Red and the layer behind the white layer is All Spruced Up pure luxury cardstock

glittery home

Here is a close up of the sparkle on the card.  I even put the stickles on the snowflakes too. 

Be sure to check out all the inspiration the design team has created to share with you.  Make sure you leave a comment on each blog along the way because next on Wednesday, we will be choosing two winners from all the comments who will each win a fabulous Gina K. Designs grab bag filled with a least a dozen individual precut images!

Thanks for stopping by!  I read and appreciate each and every comment!
