Gina K Inspiration Blog Hop Day 3

 Hello! Today the Gina K Design Team are showcasing two more sets from the new release, Various Verses and Gnome One Like You. First up is a card I made using Various Verses. I love the delicate flower image and wonderful sentiments in this set! I also love that it is free! This is the new Buy Three Get One Free set.

 Next is the most adorable stamp set from Tami Mayberry, called Gnome One Like You. This is such a fun set with the sweetest little gnome and this cute flamingo! I'll share the stet by step photos for this card next week, but in the meantime, be sure to check out all the wonderful projects from the rest of the design team.

 To start, I sponged Memento Summer Sky ink.

Then sponged Memento Bahama Blue ink. 

 Sponged Memento Grape Jelly.

 Then sponged Memento Paris Dusk.

 I stamped the flower silhouette with Stazon Jet Black ink.



I layered with Pure Luxury Black Onyx and used Ocean Mist for the cardbase. I used rectangle scallop Nestabitlities to cut a scrap of Vibrant Violet card stock for the scallop border on the left. The sentiment is also from Various Verses.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
