Smiley from millan.net or should it be...... Smiley from millan.net


Heehee!  Gina's newest Free with 3 called Bold and Beautiful has one of my most favorite images.....a butterfly!!  I do love butterflies!!!


 Stamps: Bold and Beautiful
Paper: Pure Luxury Ivory, Green Apple; DCWV Lace dp
Ink: Memento Pear Tart
Accessories: Rhinestones

I really wanted to showcase the butterfly and am enjoying making more CAS cards now and then.....so I had some lacey dp that I used to stamp the butterfly in Memento Pear Tart.  I stamped the sentiment also in the same ink on Pure Luxury Ivory and layered with Green Apple.  Just a few rhinestones....and a simple, quick birthday card.  And if you're like me you need last-minute birthday cards because of forgetfulness!  LOL

Gina K. Designs Inspiration Hop Day #2......Garden Fresh and Whimsical Wishes!!!

Smiley from millan.net Smiley from millan.net Smiley from millan.net

WoooHooo!  We start off Day 2 with a super caaauuute and deeelish new stamp set designed by Gina called Garden Fresh....



Stamps: Garden Fresh
Paper: Pure Luxury White, Lemon Drop, Cranberry Tart; Jillibean Watermelon Gazpacho dp
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black; Copics
Accessories: Nesties, Rhinestones

I just LOVE this cuuuute set!!  I needed a little gift and thought a little 3x3 thank you notecard set with a little box.  Little cards are so quick to whip up with Nesties and dp!  I stamped the sentiment and then colored the watermelon and popped it up.


Just a few cuts and Nesties cut out and these come together very quickly.  I used the Scalloped Squares and Lacey Squares Nesties.  The dp is Jillibean Soup Watermelon Gazpacho.  I used Pure Luxury Cranberry Tart and Lemon Drop and colored the watermelon with my Copics.


I followed the box tutorial on Splitcoast here:  3 x 3 Notecard Box.  It really is a quick and simple little gift idea for hostesses, teachers, graduation.....really any occasion!!

Stamps: Whimsical Wishes
Paper: Pure Luxury White, Red Hot; Basic Grey Lauderdale
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black; Copics
Accessories: Scallop Punch, Nesties, Pearls, Ribbon, Seeing Spots CB Folder


I love this sweet flower and thought a cheery get well card would make someone feel better!!  So I used Pure Luxury Red Hot and Basic Grey Lauderdale dp to match the Copics I used.  I used the Oval & Fancy Tags 1 Nesties and a scalloped edge punch for some fun layering.  This stamp set also pairs with Vogue Vases beautifully!!!

I had to go with some pretty pink!!  I used the Spellbinders Lacey Circles and Floral Doily die sets.  And layers....lots of layers with some bling!!  LOL  I am loving this wrinkled ribbon lately....methinks I need all the colors they make that stuff in! Ha!  I just colored the trumpet blooms softly and sponged the inside of the die to help them pop just a bit more.  The cool pink woodgrain dp is from Basic Grey Sweet Threads which I love!!  And my cardstock is Pure Luxury White, Innocent Pink and Fresh Asparagus.
