GKD Inspiration Blog Hop Day 1

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!!

First up today is Melanie's newest stamp set Wild Flowers:

I stamped the flowers with Versamark and heat embossed them with clear embossing powder before applying some Gelatos.  This set is just beautiful and coordinates perfectly with Wild at Heart.

Next up is the newest set from Tami's newest stamp set Masculine Tags...

I sponged the edges of Ivory cardstock and GKD Patterned Paper Pack Pool Side.  I gently sponged the patterned paper as well as I wanted it just a touch darker and the Tim Holtz Tea Dye blended in just wonderfully.  Love the masculine feel to this new stamp set!
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day! 
Blessings,
