The Cast and Crew for Gina K Designs welcomes you to another fabulous Inspiration Blog Hop! Gina, along with the Cast and Crew and Guest Designers, 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. 


              First up is Melanie Muenchinger's
 Fabulous Frame:  

     

I stamped the frame on Gina K Designs Pure Luxury White layering weight card stock. I masked off the center, then masked off the edges with sticky notes. Then sponged the clouds in using Powder Blue ink by Gina K Designs. I used Spectrum Noir markers TB4 to color in the blue around the oval. I used 2 different embossing folders, Stamped the sentiment in Black ink & Used Powder Blue card stock by Gina K Designs. I colored the butterflies with spectrum noir markers and pencils.

********

This second card I showed at the release party. I stamped the frame on White card stock by Gina K designs. Colored the edge of the frame and around the oval with Spectrum Noir black marker so it looks like a different layer. The oval & around the belly band is colored in with Spectrum Noir IB-1 marker. I paper pieced the belly band with DP from the paper pack Ang & Me. The flower and butterflies are colored with Spectrum Noir markers and pencils.This panel sits on top of Turquoise Sea pure luxury card stock by Gina K Designs. I added ribbon behind my image and bling.



****

Next is Debbie Corbari new set:
 Let's Talk:


I used Ocean Mist, Black Onyx, Kraft, and DP from the Paper Pack Ang  & me by Gina K Designs. The Diva is: Day At the Park Diva by Debbie as well. I added a vintage cut and ribbon also from Gina K Designs. My Diva 's shirt is paper pieced with some of the wonderful paper from this same DP pack. I colored her & her blanket using Spectrum Noir Pencils.

*********

This card is also from the release party. I used Sweet Mango, Sweet Corn, Black Onyx card stock along with some more of the Great DP from the paper pack Ang& me. The flowers on the paper are white so I colored them with GB-1 from Spectrum Noir. They match the Sweet Corn paper. The words and bubbles are stamped in Sweet Mango ink by Gina K Designs. I added black rhinestones, and this wonderful gingham ribbon is also Gina's.
