Gina K. Designs Release Inspiration Day #4..........Springtime Silhouettes Stamp TV Kit!!!



It's SPRING!!!!  Yes.....actually up here on my mountain it is too.....we certainly are hopeful for some of our Spring snows though as it was a super mild and dry winter.  But Spring snows are cool because they're wet and they melt right away and then it's sunny and green!!!  Just like my smilie there! LOL

Now that you are ready for spring............here is our newest Stamp TV Kit.....called Springtime Silhouettes............


Such a fun, celebratory collection of sweeeeet images!!!!


Today I went Kraft!!!  Yes.....trying to branch out and make some fun designs....but I still snuck a bit 'o' the pink and bling in them! LOL  I used Pure Luxury Kraft along with Lipstick Red and Bubblegum Pink.  I used the Polka Dot Cuttlebug Folder and the Spellbinders Circle and Blossom Nesties.  The dp I used is from a previous STV kit but I so love the colors!!  LOL

Smiley from millan.net

Ready for more inspiration using the newest Gina K. Designs stamps??!!!  WooHoo!!!


First.....Melanie's new set, Bring The Bling.


I wanted to make sure I made a traditional "Lee" card.....lots of pink and bling!!!  After all...Melanie's nickname for this stamp set is Bring the BLEENG!  LOL  I thought it would be fun to see the contrast of stamped images with one that uses the image as a guide for bling!!  And I love the color combo of the Pure Luxury Black Onyx and Bubblegum Pink!!  A touch of velvet ribbon too!

Smiley from millan.net


This is Asela's Make A Splash.


I couldn't resist a fun, glitzty card for an undersea theme!!!  I used tulle and pearls and glitter, OH MY!!!  LOL  Some watery texture with the Spots and Dots Cuttlebug Folder.  I love the bright Pure Luxury Turquoise Sea color!!!  And how you can resist these little smilie cuties??  LOL

This is a gorgeous set by Theresa called Warm With Love.


I thought a frilly design would suit this sweet butterfly!!  And I do love some of the elegant Webster's Pages and this Pure Luxury Lipstick Red matches perfectly!!  I also love the look of the wrinkled ribbon and a dainty Spellbinders shape!!

Gina K Designs Thank You to Spellbinders!!!!



The Gina K Designs team would like to welcome to you this special Spellbinders Thank You Blog Hop!! Recently Spellbinders generously gifted each member of our Design Team with the amazing new Grand Calibur!!! What an exciting gift for sure and we are absolutely enjoying this fabulous machine!! We have made some special cards and projects to showcase the new Grand Calibur and why we are loving it so much!! Thank you so very much Spellbinders!!!
You should have come here from the very sweet and talented Jennie's Blog.  If you didn't then you just might want to start at the beginning with fabulous AJ's Blog.

Let me tell you how totally EXCITED I was to receive this awesome gift!!!  My two most favorite things about the Grand Calibur is that you can die cut several shapes all at once AND even using the really detailed Medallions and Borders they cut perfectly through in one pass!!!  Yipppeeee!!! 



So here is my little gift project using Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Pendant set.  I had this little box and used the dies to just very simply decorate it to match the notecard.  I used Melanie's adorable new set, Basket Blessings.  I love the little pink bunnies...of course PINK!!!  LOL  I used Pure Luxury White and Innocent Pink and keep practicing coloring with my Copics! 


Our theme for this hop is Spring!!!  Now what's more Spring-like than pink bunnies??  LOL



Now hop along to the amazingly talented Melanie's Blog to see what gorgeousness she has in store!!!
