{Gina K Inspiration Hop} Delicate Damask

Today we're featuring Beth's new set Delicate Damask.  Sooooo pretty and elegant!  Here's my card...


I hand cut a banner out of watercolor paper for my focal layer and stamped one of the smaller damask stamps in Versamark ink, then embossed it in white.  When it had a chance to set, I used my Distress Markers and scribbled some ink on an acrylic block.  Then I used a small wet paintbrush to pick up the color which I washed over the embossed image.  I love the soft color!

I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment in Charcoal Brown and then matted my banner on some Innocent Pink cardstock.  The pretty yellow gingham is from the Sunshiney Day paper pack and the pink layer is embossed with the Wire Fence embossing folder.


Here's the list if you're just getting started... otherwise, you can jump right over to the shop to check out the stamps and supplies you saw on today's hop! :)

I just loved making this card!  The colors, the gorgeous two-step rose and the wonderful sentiment made it a joy - plus there are polka dots on it!  All of my favorite things. : )

The two step Romantic Wild Roses set is SO pretty.  I think you'll be seeing more of it in the future!  The layout is very basic, just matted rectangles of Simple Stories I Am paper, then I used the Spellbinders Celebrations Pierced Rectangle dies to give the top layer some extra interest.

Here's my Stamp Simply supply list...

My card today is with Theresa's gorgeous new set - Elegant Florals 2


I stamped my flowers in Versamark ink onto watercolor paper and then embossed them with white embossing powder.  I used my Distress Markers to watercolor them and then drew in a few black lines to create a frame.  I grabbed some buttons from my stash and some BubbleGum twine to use as embellishments.

Hi everyone!!!

The Cast and Crew for Gina K Designs welcomes you to another fabulous Inspiration Blog Hop! Gina and the Cast and Crew will inspire you with many beautiful ideas!

To see the full list of winners check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hops.

My card today is with Melanie's fun new set - Triple Play Frame.  This set had so many great extras, that I decided to do a background with some of the flowers, foliage and butterflies.  The sentiment is from Let's Talk.


I used Fresh Asparagus, Kraft, Sweet Corn, Prickly Pear and Wild Lilac inks for the background and Dark Chocolate ink for the sentiment.  The gingham paper is from the Sunshiney Day paper pack and I tied it altogether with some gold cord.  Simple and easy!

Here's todays inspiration list if you're just getting started.  Otherwise feel free to drop into the shop to browse through the new releases!!
