The Design Team for Gina K. Designs welcomes you to another fabulous Inspiration Blog Hop!!! Gina and the Design Team will inspire you with many beautiful ideas! And as you hop through their blogs, make sure to leave a comment on each of them because we will choose a few random comments and those stampers will each win a grab bag of deeply etched, pre-cut Gina K. Designs stamps! To see the full list of winners check the Big News forum at Stamp TV a couple of days after the hops!!





Today I got to use the fabulous new StampTV Kit called “Petals & Wings”---I LOVE, LOVE the StampTV Kits that Gina puts out!  They are always jammed-packed full of fab images & sentiments that can be mixed & matched!  Always a great value and you get some papers, brads, ribbons & more in the set…awesome blossom!!  I chose to use this fab hot air balloon image for this card.  I used more papers from MME’s Miss Caroline (Howdy) – cuz I love ‘em – but chose to pull more of the minty green tones out this time.  I used my handy dandy Bow Easy for my bow, topped with a button & some extra pearls.




To mix it up a bit I decided to paper piece the clouds and basket of the air balloon—then I stickled the heck out of them for sparkle LOL!  I want to go on a hot-air balloon ride this year Winking smile For the rest of the image I used Copics (G02,G00,G000/YR02,YR00,YR0000) and then I put a nice thick coat of Crystal Lacquer on the heart for shine.

Ok now you need to hop to the designers below and leave some love on their posts for a chance to win a great Grab Bag of stamps!!  And you will surely be inspired today!
