Gina K. Designs Inspiration Hop Day #2.......Basket Buddies and Heartfelt!!!



Have you seen Melanie's adorable Basket Buddies set......


I just couldn't resist those puppy faces!!!  And I so enjoyed coloring them.....one is a yellow lab and one a chocolate lab!!!


I thought this would be a cute little gift for someone who got a new puppy!!  I stamped the adorable little paws as a background for the little 3 x 3 gift card and on the box.  Coloring on the treat box worked just fine but I had to be patient and let it dry for a couple of days!  I used Pure Luxury White and Black Onyx and colored with Copics....that's it!  Very simple little gift!!  Well I had to go buy the teeny tiny little milk bones since I only have really big ones since my doggies are big ole beasties! LOL

Next is a beautiful set designed by Theresa called Heartfelt....


This is just perfect for Autumn....which is right around the corner!!!  At least I hope so!!  LOL


I thought it would be fun to make a little Fall scene by masking the pumpkins and stamping the fence a couple times.  I used the Leafy Branch Cuttlebug Folder on the Green Apple panel and some Jute 'cuz I like the rustic look with these colors.  Pure Luxury Green Apple and Sweet Mango.

Now hop on through all the fabulous Design Team blogs and make sure to leave comments since Gina will be picking winners to choose a free stamp set ($24.95 or less).  You're sure to fall in love with all the amazing creations!!!

~ Have A Creative Day! ~
