CardMaker and Gina K Blog Hop!!

Hello and welcome to a wonderful blog hop where the CardMaker blog team is joining the Gina K design team.  You should have arrived from  Valerie Stangle's fabulous blog.
 
Gina K generously provided the CardMaker team with the gorgeous Spring Parade Stamp TV kit.  This kit is really, really packed with beautiful stamps, patterned paper, cardstock, ribbon and brads...and they all coordinate perfectly.  I know I'm going to be creating with this kit all spring long...and probably beyond!! 

You'll find tons of inspiration on our blog hop today, but if you need even more, check out the Spring Parade Pinterest board for lots more beautiful projects with this kit.

Here is my card and gift box...


The flower stamp is from the Blossom stamp set, the sentiment is from the Dreams Take Flight stamp set.


For the gift box, I painted the box black (didn't have a black one), the bow die cut is Bow, Create a Flower from Sizzix.  The flower brad is from my stash, I dipped it in VersaMark ink then heat embossed with Zing embossing powder (Powder) from American Crafts.




Your next stop on the blog hop is Beth Silaika's blog where I know you'll find more gorgeous creations!

And don't forget to stop in at the Gina K blog where where she will be hosting a giveaway on her blog...a $50 gift certificate!!!

Oh, I almost forgot to tell you that I had the opportunity to meet Gina K at her store in Wisconsin a few years ago.  I was visiting my friend Barb and she made a point of making sure we hit the Gina K store...and Gina was there so we said hi...I have no idea why we didn't get a picture with her.  Oh well, I'll just have to go visit again, right Barb?!!!

Have fun on the hop!
