{Gina K Designs & Unity} Inspiration Blog Hop

** For today's Stamp Simply post, scroll down!  Thanks! **





Hi again!  Gina K and the cast and crew of Gina K Designs and Angela from Unity Stamps have prepared a fun collaborative blog hop for you today!  Gina and Angela wanted to do a project together, so Gina K is providing the supplies and Angela is providing the stamps.  Isn't it wonderful when friendships can remain and flourish across company borders?!  I know you'll love both the Ang & Me supply kit and the Gina & Me set!!

And don't forget to leave comments as you hop through the blogs.  We'll be choosing a random commenter to win a $25.00 Gift Certificate from Gina K Designs!!

 To see the winner announcement, check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hops!



For the simple layout of my card today, I used some of the GKD Sweet Mango cardstock, some layering weight white cardstock, and then just a snip of Turquoise sea for the tag.  The Ang & Me patterned paper makes the pop of blue in the background, and the kraft double-stitched ribbon is tied off with one of Gina's wooden Buckles and Buttons embellishments and a bit of twine.  The image and sentiment are both stamped in Gina K Designs Warm Cocoa ink.

Thanks for stopping in today!  Be sure to visit the rest of my teammates and friends and leave a comment.  We love to hear from you!!!
