Gina K Inspiration Blog Hop Day 2

Hello! It's day 2 of the Gina K Designs inspiration blog hops and today we are featuring two more new stamp sets, Stamp It Big 2, by Carolyn King, and Simple Flowers, by Tami Mayberry. My first card uses some fabulous images from Stamp It Big 2, along with Pretty Patterns 2. You can see step by step photos for this card below. 

Next is a card featuring images from Simple Flowers. I love all the fun flowers and elements in Simple Flowers. I love these sweet images! I'll be posting a quick tutorial on how to make this card next week.

For now, be sure to stop by all the other DT blog for tons of inspiration…

To make my Stamp It Big 2 card, I started by stamping one end of the banner, twice, on white card stock, using Gina K Black Onyx.

I used image from Pretty Patterns to create backgrounds for the banners, stating with Gina K Sweet Corn ink on one of the banners.

Then stamped another pattern, on the other banner, using Gina K Sweet Mango.

On the orange banner, I added some small accents using Gina K Cherry Red.

And a few more using Gina K Sweet Corn.

Back to the yellow banner, I added some smaller pieces using Gina K ink. After both banners were stamped, I cut them out.

On a plain white card base, I stamped the "big" Hello, then gave it a drop shadow using my YR07 Copic marker.

I adhered the banners to the card base, then added another "big" image, the arrow. The arrow was Gina K Black Onyx ink, stamped directly onto Sweet Corn card stock, then cut out.

Thanks for visiting. I hope you have a wonderful day!
