Gina K Designs July Blog Hop Day 1

Welcome to this month's blog hop.  If you were able to attend the party you saw how fabulous the new sets this month are!  We are here to inspire you in different ways to use these stamps!  Here are my samples for The Vine, illustrated by Melanie Muenchinger.
This is my party sample, and one I have already uploaded to Stamp TV.
And here is my sample for this hop.  I have to laugh the color combo is almost the same -- no, that was not planned! :).

Next is the All Occasion Tags, illustrated by Tami Mayberry.
I had originally made this for the party and than realized I didn't need it!  Well, I couldn't waste it, so I am sharing it here today.  I have said this before, but it needs repeating!  I am having so much fun with my new liquid pearls!  I just love the way it looks like beads when dry! I used Silver Pearls on this card.  Sure is a lot less then buying silver beads! :)  You can even get the doilies over at the store too.  I always enjoy using Nesties Grommet Tags to cut out the frames in this set.  I am all about no scissors!
On my 2nd sample, I used a stamp from Springtime Silhouette Stamp TV Kit to make my background, I added a couple of gems for texture and used a different tag from All Occasion Tags, again, cutting it out with Nesties Grommet Tags.
That's it for me today.  We are continuing tomorrow with more!  Meanwhile, keep going today  - there's a lot more to see!
Thanks for stopping by~
 Here are the DT's and blogs:
