It's time to for GinaK's Blog Hop !!!!

Hello again!!!!

Wahooooo - it's finally time for GinaK's Blog Hop!!!

I'm so thrilled to show off Nina Brackett's fabulous new Stamp Set - Elegant Post!!! You all probably think I've gone mad...LOL...but I had so much fun playing with this new Set that I've made three different cards :)

Here we go......





















This card measures 5 1/2" x 5 1/2". I used the new In-Color Melon Mambo, White and Basic Black. The DP is from the Melon Mambo Design Prints Collection. I accessorised my card with Silver Pearls (Michael's), a Styled Silver Ribbon Slide and some yummy matching Raspberry Fizz Satin Ribbon (PTI).

At last I added some piercing on the left side and scoring on the right side of my card base.

************************************************

My second card is regular size 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".





















On this card I used the new In-Color Dusty Durango, So Saffron and White. The DP is from the Dusty Durango Design Prints Collection. I decided to score the So Saffron CS to add a little bit of interest :) !!!

The image was inked with Memento Black and I colored it with Copic Markers - G07, R08, R85, V17, Y35, YG91 plus a Colorless Blender.

The card was decorated with some more Silver Pearls, Silver Cord, So Saffron Ribbon and a matching Button.

****************************************

My third card is a Long Card - it measures 3 1/4" x 6 1/2".





















The base CS is Kraft. I added the new In-Color Rich Razzleberry and White. The Design Paper is from the Razzleberry Lemonade Collection.

The cage was inked in Basic Black , the birdies and the sentiment were inked with Rich Razzleberry.

I used the Eyelet Border Punch on the bottom of the Design Paper. I added a strip of Rich Razzleberry CS and White CS on top of the DP and pierced it.

To finish it all up I decorated this card with the matching Rich Razzleberry Polka Dotted Ribbon, a matching Button, small Silver Pearls and the bow on top of the cage was made with some yellow Scrap Floss.
