Let's start today's Gina K. Designs hop with some pearls!!!  LOL

Tami's set called Dreams is so elegant and can also be used with Spellbinder Nestabilities!!  I couldn't resist using some new Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden dp and some pearly bling with little peach roses that matches our newest Pure Luxury color, Just Peachy.  The color is truly a beautiful, summery peach color!!!

Yes....I love making my own dp!!  This time I started with dp and stamped the beautifully elegant flowers on it.  I was in a bright, Springy mood so I used Pure Luxury in Wild Dandelion and Grass Green!!!  This set is so versatile and elegant!!

Next is a set after my own heart!  Melanie's Border Bling.....

Bling-a-Bling Bling!!!!  Mel's set goes with wonderful Spellbinders Nestabilities!!  I used the Label 1 Nesties.  And my favorite color combo.....Pure Luxury Chocolate and Innocent Pink!  I used a heart border punch and the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder for some texture.  And I'm just so addicted to bling swirlies!!  Can't have too much bling!!!  LOL

Gina K. Sew Fun Hop!!!!

Smiley from millan.net

Oh YIKES!  With all the Blogger issues.....my post went POOOOF!  So I'm doing just a quick write-up to get my Gina K. post back up asap!!!  Unfortunately all the lovely comments from so many of you are gone with the wind!  :(

You should be coming here from the totally sweet and talented Jennie's Blog.......

I made this card at our apartment where we stay part of the week for hubby's job.....and although I've got quite a bit of stampin' stuff there.....I'm a bit limited still.  So I had to jury-rig an idea for Sewing or Stitching for this technique hop.......

So I used a 1/8" hole punch and some twine....and then I couldn't resist adding a pearl in between each stitch.  I love my bling!!  I decided this would be a fun color combo.....nice and summery!  I used Pure Luxury Sweet Mango and Lipstick Red.  I used Gina's Garden Silhouettes and Memento Ladybug ink. 

Now you'll want to hop over to the fabulous Sharon's Blog to see what she's got for you!!

Flourishes Timeless Tuesday......Hi Sweetie!!!

Smiley from millan.net

We have heard the sound of hummers at our house!!  Granted we've also had another snowstorm....but all the more reason to hang out at least one feeder so the little guys can have something sweet!!!  So in keeping with that....this is my design for the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC116)........to make a card for someone under the age of 13.  This is going to a friend's 10 y.o. daughter!!

  •  Stamps: Flourishes: Berry Sweet, Humming Along
  • Paper: Gina K Pure Luxury: White, Smoky Slate, Kraft, Lipstick Red; BG Curio
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black; Copics
  • Accessories: Pearls, Stickles, Spellbinders Ovals & Scalloped Ovals, Swiss Dots CB Folder
  • Copic Markers: R89, R37, R32, E44, E42
I combined the FTTC challenge with the Splitcoast Color Challenge since the colors were just perfect for the stamp sets Berry Sweet and Humming Along!!!  Since I don't have SU colors I used Gina K. Pure Luxury colors of Kraft, White, Smoky Slate and Lipstick Red.  Some dp from the Basic Grey Curio pack matched wonderfully...I do love me some dp!!  Oh and bling too ya know!!!  LOL  Although it's only pearls and some Stickles on the little hummer.

Some more exciting posts coming up soon.....a There She Goes Mother of All Blog Hops.....a Gina K. Designs Design Team Technique Hop......and some Yummy Blog Candy soon!!!!  So stay tuned!!!
