Elegant Verses Blog Hop

Good evening!

It's time for another GinaK Design's blog hop and tonight we are featuring Nina Brackett's lovely Elegant Verses stamp set! My first card shows how easy it can be to make a focal image with the gorgeous sentiments and fonts that Nina chose for her words...

How quick and easy is that? The die cut is from Quickutz - it's one of my newest 'toy's in my stamp room! I really like the size and the shape. The embossing folder is from Stampin Up. I sponged some Vivid Taupe ink onto it to 'shabby-it-up' a little.

My next card shows the sentiment set with the coordinating Elegant Post stamp set that Nina also designed...

It doesn't get much easier that this! Just some simple stamping, sponging and gluing! lol! I really like the line of copper nailheads that give the bird cage an almost 3D look - even though it's tucked behind the sentiment...

And the inside view (with more images from Nina's Elegant Post stamp set)...


For even more samples of the Elegant Verses stamp set, please visit the Illustrator of the set, Nina Brackett's blog. Nina will be offering her new stamp set as blog candy tonight too - so we hope you'll take the time to comment on her blog for your chance to win this beautiful stamp set!

After visiting Nina, hop over to her good friend Silke Ledlow's blog for some special projects she'll be sharing with us tonight.
