Gina K. Designs Inspiration Hop Day #3.........By The Sea and Elegant Elements!!!



Today's hop starts with Theresa's new one, By The Sea........


Theresa's set features elegant lighthouses and stunning birds!!!  I used the sketch that Tami has as this week's CPS (Card Positioning Systems) challenge!  I flipped the sketch on it's side and went for a masculine, distressed look.  I generally love to color any image....but my art student daughter told me that she really liked the impact of this image just stamped in black.  I'm trusting her!  LOL  I used our Pure Luxury in Red Hot and In The Navy and also the Distressed Stripes CB Folder.  Make sure you hop on over to the C.P.S. Blog and play along for yet another chance to win some yummy Gina K. stamps!!!!

Up next is this month's Free With 3....Elegant Elements designed by Gina......



I do soooo love making my own dp...and this stamp set is just perfect for me to do that!!  I used our newest Just Peachy Pure Luxury cardstock and also combined with Melanie's Border Bling set for the sentiment panel.  I also used the Dots CB Folder and some GKD White Organdy Ribbon.

Now head on to check out my extremely talented fellow DT blogs!!!  And leave comments as Gina will choose winners to receive a stamp set of their choice (up to 24.95)!!!!

~ Have A Creative Day! ~

  31. Lovely cards Lee, amazing how much bling can just make a card, they both are great cards, but really like second one best, I just love that color (just peachy), and your bling just seems to add so much. Same with the first card, I like how the red matting and the red bling seem to make the card so to speak, just adds something special, to me anyway.
    Love the cards
