Gina K May Release Inspiration Hop Day 3

Welcome to Day 3 of the Gina K. Designs May Release Inspiration Hop!  We are excited to share with you two more stamp sets which were released last Thursday.  First is By the Sea illustrated by Theresa Momber:

  
I used some of the patterned paper GKD Patterned Paper Pack Vintage Chic and rubbed the Broken China distress ink over a panel before layering it on Black and then white cardstock.  I used the same ink to stamp the lighthouse scene and stamped over it with the sentiment included in this set.  The Spellbinders dies are Beaded Ovals and Classic Ovals Small.

Next up is Elegant Elements, the new Free with 3 stamp set:


This was really easy to create using markers and adding a bit of bling to the center of each.  The sentiment was die cut using Grommet Tags (perhaps a bit dark in hindsight, but looks better in real life).

For even more samples of these new sets, please visit each of the GKD Design Team blogs listed below and leave a comment. The more blogs you comment on, the more chances you have of winning!  Tomorrow Gina will announce on her blog the randomly chosen winners who will each win one Gina K. Designs stamp set of their choice!
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!
Blessings,
