Elegant Post Blog Hop

It's time for another GinaK Blog hop! Tonight we are featuring Nina Brackett's gorgeous Elegant Post stamp set tonight! Several of us are joining in on the hop tonight - so get ready for a ton of inspiration from everyone!

I decided to make a trio of projects to share with you tonight - because I couldn't decide which images to use, so I packed as many images as I could on these two cards and gift tag. I used a K&Co. mat pack that I've had in my stash since it coordinates perfectly with Nina's set with the elegant designs and colors.

Using these love birds and this gorgeous sentiment, I made this tag which I may eventually put onto a large card. It's a pretty large tag, so the card will probably have to be a 5x7 sized one.

Next, is Nina's beautiful bird cage...

Here's another view of the bird cage, so you can see the shine from the Sakura clear glaze pen that I used to trace the stamped lines of the cage...

And finally, this last card using the lamp image ...

Once again, I traced the stamped lines with Sakura's clear glaze pen and added stickles to the light to help it glow...


For more inspiration with her Elegant Post stamp set tonight, please see Nina Brackett's blog. Nina has also designed two gorgeous digital paper pack that coordinate perfectly with her stamp set. They are called Grungy Elegance and Simple Elegance.

Nina has asked her friends Silke Ledlow and Melissa Czapor to join in her blog hop tonight. We also have several of GinaK's Senior Design team members participating: Cathy, Donna, Emily, Erika, Gina, Kurtis, Lee, Melanie, and Theresa

And finally, be sure to check out our CenterStage Spotlight Design team members' blogs: Brenda Turner, Shannon Bracken, and Sue Walsh for even more great projects!

Enjoy the rest of your hopping tonight!
