Gina K. Designs Inspirational Blog Hop - Handmade Botanicals



Happy Monday!

The cast and crew for Gina K Designs welcomes you to a special Inspiration Blog Hop featuring our new incentive stamp set, Handmade Botanicals.  These stamps would be the perfect complement to an existing Gina K. Designs stamp set or used on their own.  Plus the Handmade By stamp is great for adding your own personal touch to your cards.  I decided to make a card from both categories - complementary and stamps used as a focal point.

Enjoy the gorgeous inspiration samples from the team and then comment on each blog for your chance to win a $20 gift certificate to the Gina K. Designs Store!  To see who won, check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hop.

 Here is a picture of this great new incentive stamp set:


The card at the top of my post uses the stamps to complement a design from the Made with Love StampTV Kit.  I adore how the images add just the sweetest touch to the bottom of the card.

For the following card I used one of the images stamped three times (at differing heights) for the focal point of my card.  Then I chose sentiments from the Inspiration Mosaic stamp set to complete the design.

Don’t forget to pop over to the Gina K Designs Store and check out all of the new products available this month in the What’s New section.

Enjoy the hop and I'll see you again tomorrow.

I like the unique ways you used the set. It looks very nice below the circle greeting and it goes wonderfully with the inspiration mosaic sentiments. I have never thought to use the sentiments without the mosaic set. Thanks for sharing.
