Gina K Designs DT Hop - Day 2




The Design Team for Gina K. Designs welcomes you to another fabulous Inspiration Blog Hop!!! Gina and the Design Team will inspire you with many beautiful ideas! And as you hop through their blogs, make sure to leave a comment on each of them because we will choose a few random comments and those stampers will each win a grab bag of deeply etched, pre-cut Gina K. Designs stamps! To see the full list of winners check the Big News forum at Stamp TV a couple of days after the hops!!

Today we are featuring Light Hearted Wishes, illustrated by Tami Mayberry;






Next on today's list is American Made, illustrated by Becky Oehlers;

 I used my little craft iron and melted crayons on it, and then swiped it across the piece of shiny cardstock.  It's my "faux Encaustic Wax technique".  I still need some practice, but I love the effect with this fun focal image.

 Who doesn't love sun rays............ :)



And, for the last set today, Stippled Nature by our newest Illustrator, Beth Silaika. (Welcome Beth!)

Yeah, so bummed I can't figure out my cutter to cut these images [like ALL you Cameo owners out there - just call me jealous Nelly here :)]  - I used my trusty scissors.



 This is the last stop for today.  If you are just stopping in, here is a list of today's participating DT's;

Thanks for stopping by~
