Gina K Inspiration Hop Day 3

 Hello. Today the Gina K Design Team are featuring two more new stamp sets. First is You Go Girl, designed by Tami Mayberry, filled with so many messages of support and encouragement. I just love this sassy girl  image!

 Next is the new Free With Three stamp set, called, Pleasant Plurals. This is a great all occasion sentiment that includes greetings, "from both," "for both," "from all" etc. I used some of the sentiments, stamped in lighter colors to make my background and stamped one in black to stand out. The flowers are from Strength and Hope.

For more inspiration, check out what the rest of the team have to show you...

For the Best Wishes card, I stamped the lilies, from Strength and Hope, using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Then I colored with Copic markers, starting with Y13. 

Next I added Y17 (sorry, apparently Y13 is a camera hog, but it really was Y17 at this stage). 

Added YR07. 

Then I added Y08 at the very center and made a few dots toward the center of the petals. After coloring, I cut out the lilies, cutting away the ribbon. 

My card base is 5 1/2 by 4 1/4 inches, made from Pure Luxury White. I masked off the top and bottom and stamped Hello, Best Wishes, With Love and Love You  randomly, using Memento Tangelo and Cantaloupe inks. The Best Wishes was stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

I removed the masks, adhered the flowers with Pop Dots and added a twine ribbon.

Thanks for dropping by. I hope your day is wonderful!

How clever of you to stamp several phrases in a light color and one in black to make the point of sending the card.
