{Gina K Designs Inspiration Blog Hop} Autumn Wishes


The Cast and Crew of Gina K Designs welcomes you to another fabulous Inspiration Blog Hop to celebrate the brand new Stamp TV Kit - Autumn Wishes! Gina and the Cast and Crew will inspire you with many fun projects for your students, their teachers, and your friends in the teaching profession!

 As you hop through the blogs of Gina and the Cast & Crew, make sure to leave a comment on each of them because we will choose a random commenter to win a grab bag of Gina K Designs products!  To see if you won, check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hops.

Today we're featuring stamps from the Autumn Wishes set - 
just ONE of the sets in the newest Stamp TV Kit!!  


My first card spreads a little sunshine, following Gina's video tutorial HERE.. I covered the corner of my cardstock with a circle while I sponged my rays to keep it clear.  The flowers were stamped in Versamark and clear embossed before I started sponging.


For my second card, I decided to use darker, earthy colors, so it would be suitable for the men in our lives.  I stamped the leaf around the edges of the cardstock in Dark Sage and Fresh Asparagus, then added a ribbon, a couple of banners and a matted sentiment.  I even added a little handwritten "to you" to personalize it a bit.  I like how clean and simple it looks, but interesting, too!

Well, that's it for today!   Have you ordered your kit yet?  I know you'll love it!!  I'll give you the list of my fellow designers again, in case you're just getting started... otherwise, you can jump right over to the shop to check out the stamps and supplies you saw on today's hop.   And don't forget to visit me on Friday in the Stamp TV Addicts Group for another edition of Friday Funday!  See you tomorrow and Friday!!  :)



Thanks for stopping by!

Both cards are so wonderful. I like the sunshine one. It has been a long time since I have made the sun rays like this. The leaves around the outside in the masculine colors work so well. I love it.
