{Gina K Designs Inspiration Blog Hop} This & That and Simply The Best

** Busy day today!  For my Stamp Simply post, please scroll down! **

Hi everyone!

The Cast and Crew for Gina K Designs welcomes you to another fabulous Inspiration Blog Hop! It's time for our September Release and, boy, do we have some treats for you this month!  We hope to inspire you with some eye candy as you hop along with us!  Enjoy the gorgeous inspiration samples from the team and then comment on each blog for your chance to win an awesome grab bag of GKD goodies. Don't forget to check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hop to see if you are the winner!

Today we are featuring This and That and Simply the Best.  Here's my card with Beth's This and That set...



Yay!  It's Christmas!  I love Christmas!  This card has lots of layers, but it is pretty clean and simple, nonetheless.  I used a snowflake embossing folder to add some texture on the top and bottom, stamped my greeting and added a gingham bow with a little jingle bell and some twine.  The jingle bell just makes me happy! : )

My second card today combines the today's two featured sets.  I used Simply the Best in the background, and This and That for the words.  The background is easy - just stamp your images in versamark, emboss with white powder and sponge over the top with your choice of inks.

I love how the embossing adds texture and highlights the pretty sentiment, ribbon and cute bell. The leaf background is beautifully done and shows off the design on the leaf. Great job on your beautiful cards.

Tricia, words fail me. You are at the end of the list and I feel like I am out of things to say about everyone's wonderfully cute cards. Are there two beads in the upper left corner of your "Forever & Always" card?
