{Gina K Designs} Blog Hop - Vertical Greetings 2 & Keep Calm




The Cast and Crew of Gina K Designs welcome you to another fabulous Inspiration Blog Hop! Gina and the Cast and Crew will inspire you with many beautiful ideas! As you hop through the blogs, make sure to leave a comment on each of them because we will be choosing ONE winner for a wonderful Grab Bag of fabulous Gina K goodies.  To see the winner announcement, check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hops.

Hi everyone!  Welcome back!!  

Today I have a card to share with Theresa's Vertical Greetings 2 set.  This is such a pretty set, and I love these flowers!


I used some of the Ang & Me paper pack for the background, and added some Tomato Soup banners for my sentiment.  The flowers are colored with Spectrum Noir markers.

My second card, featuring the set "Keep Calm" might well be my favorite this release.  It is clean and simple.  It uses one of the new wooden Buckles and Buttons that I stained with my Warm Cocoa inkpad.  And the message is true and clear.  My hope is anchored in Jesus Christ, so I can keep calm in the storms of life.  Love it.


To make the little cross I first stamped it in black on a piece of kraft cardstock.  Then I ran it through a woodgrain embossing folder and swiped the ridges with my Warm Cocoa ink pad.  The sentiment is stamped in Fresh Asparagus ink.

So have you placed your order yet?  Which sets / supplies are your favorite??  And did you see the FANTABULOUS Incentives this month that ship with your $25, $50 or $75 order??



Thanks SO much for stopping in to see me today!  Remember that all of the new products are available NOW at Gina K Designs!  Be sure to check out the rest of the Design Team for more inspiration with the new sets, and leave lots of love. And don't forget that we have one more hop for you on Thursday!

 Here's the info and the list for today...
