Gina K Inspiration Hop Day 2!


Hello again---Welcome to Day 2 of the Gina K Designs Inspiration Hops!  We hope you are inspired by all of the projects today. As you hop through the 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 Gina K. Designs products! To see the full list of winners check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hops.
 
Today we are sharing projects created with Elegant Flourishes and Stamper's Favorites!
 
For my first card, I combined the two sets.  I stamped the large flourish from Elegant Flourishes with Grass green ink.  I stamped one smaller flourish in the two bottom corners and another to frame the sentiment.  The gorgeous hummingbird and sentiment are from Stamper's Favorites.  I added the little flowers onto the flourish (and colored them with a Copic marker!)
 
 
My next card combines the sets as well (see--they just go together so well :)  I stamped the large flourish from Elegant Flourishes in black ink and then stamped the flower from Stamper's Favorites using Red Hot ink on white cardstock.  I colored the flower using Copic markers.  I stamped the sentiment from Stamper's Favorites in black.   For this card I used the tiny dot arches that are in the Elegant Flourishes set.  The arch of dots fits the inside of the large leg of the flourish perfectly.  BUT....you can arrange the stamp to fit all the inside and outside loops of the flourish because of the ease of bending clear stamps!  I stamped the circle arch in Moonlit Fog ink.
 



My next card also features both sets.  I embossed the butterfly from Stamper's Favorites in white on blue cardstock and added some black rhinestones on it.  I stamped the smaller flourishes from Elegant Flourishes on Kraft cardstock in Gina K white pigment ink.  The sentiment is from Stamper's Favorites:



Next, this card features the closed dotted circle from Elegant Flourishes.  I stamped the circle in black on the card and then punched small circles to fill in the design.  I used a sentiment from Lots of Lines to finish up this birthday greeting:

Finally, A little Christmas card that uses both sets.  I stamped the flourish (just inked the top part of the large flourish from Elegant Flourishes) in Red Hot ink.  I punched the tree shape to place on top of the flourish.  I stamped a sentiment from Stamper's Favorites in Red Hot ink under the patterned paper strip:
