Inspired by Gina K Designs

Hello Friends! I hope you all had wonderful weekends. I have a couple of cards to share today that I created using some products from Gina K Designs. I have had this stamp set for a while and I've used it a few times. I love the images and the sentiments in this set. It's fun to go 'shopping' in your own stash every now and then! When I bought this set, it was part of a StampTV kit, but all of the items are available in their Shop separately now. One of the perks with buying the StampTV kits, is that Gina shares videos using products from the kit. These are a CASE of THIS card I saw on StampTV.

The first is a birthday card...

It's a really simple layout, no patterned paper, just a lot of stamping with these beautiful images. I stamped the flowers with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored them with Copic markers. The little butterflies were also stamped in brown, but I stamped them off twice before stamping them onto the card stock, then I added some sparkle with a glitter pen. You can see a peek of the lined envelope that I included with the card. That is where I drew inspiration for my color palette.

I finished the inside of the card, too.

I stamped the floral image in brown after stamping off twice and added a dot of sparkle to the centers with a glitter pen.

This next one is a thank you card...

I love this color combo. I used the same layout and stamps, just added a different sentiment. I think I've mentioned it in previous posts, but I don't mind saying it again, I love, love, LOVE this Gina K Designs black and white gingham ribbon. It is so soft and wonderful to tie. And I had some black and white gingham patterned paper in my stash, so I lined my envelope with that. The inside is finished off just like the previous card.

So that's all I have for today. Thank you so much for dropping in! If you've taken the time to visit, please say 'Hi', sometimes I feel like I'm out here all alone! :)  Have a great day.

Hi Barb! Gorgeous cards! I like the stamps you've chosen to use. You've created a lovely little scene. The colors are wonderful, too. I can see why you like the second combination. The colors just pop. So happy you've found a way to add your signature sparkle, too. I hope you have a fabulous week my friend. This is a terrific start!
