Enjoy the gorgeous inspiration samples from the team and then comment on each blog. We will be selecting one lucky commenter at the end of the hop from a combination of all three days of comments and that person will win a $50 Gina K Designs gift certificate! To see who won, check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hop. Ready for some inspiration? Here are a few of the projects I have created for today’s hop:
 

 First up is a birthday card using the following supplies:
 Stars and Stripes Foil-Mates
Birthday Essentials Foil-Mates
Jelly Bean Green Fancy Foil
Sweet Mango Fancy Foil
Double stitch Rectangle Die
GKD Heavy Weight Jelly Bean Green Card Stock
GKD Heavyweight Black Card Stock
 
The die cut stars are from the single stitched rectangle die set. I also left the sentiment unfoiled just to see how it would look. I think I prefer it to be foiled.


Here are the supplies I used for this one:

You're Invited Foil-Mates
Dots and Strings Foil Mates
Silver Sequins Fancy Foils
 
For the balloons I used the following:
Red Velvet Fancy Foil
Jelly Bean Green Fancy Foil
Turquoise Sea Fancy Foil
 
The stars are foiled with Wild Dandelion
 
GKD  Heavyweight Turquoise Sea Card Stock
GKD Heavyweight Black Card Stock
 
Double Stitched Die Set
