Gina K's Blog Hop !!!

Happy Monday evening!!!

My friend Nina Brackett was so sweet and invited me to participate in tonight's *Gina K's Blog Hop*. Thank you Nina....I'm so happy you asked - wouldn't want to miss it :) !!!

The focus is on the Elegant Verse Set that Nina recently released over at the Gina K Design store. This Set works perfectly with the fabulous Elegant Post Set that Nina released last month!!!





















For this card I combined both of Nina's Sets!!!

I started out by scoring the top part of my card base. Next I stamped the Elegant Post image on the White CS and colored it with the Copic Markers.

Once I was done...I started tearing around the edges. I matched the Kraft CS below and adhered them together.

Next I added the punched out DP panel with the Satin Ribbon. At last I added the wonderful Verse and decorated the card with Silver Pearls - voila!!!

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

Of course I had to make one more card with just a sentiment on it :).......



















I started out scoring the top of the card base again.

Then I punched out the DP with the Scalloped Edge Punch. I added another strip of DP and distressed the edges.

The sentiment was inked in Basic Black and cut out with the Oval Spellbinder Die.

At last I added the piercing, the matching Satin Ribbon and the flower.

Hope you like my cards???

For even more samples, please visit the Nina's blog!!! She is offering her new Elegant Verse 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 Set!!!
