Gina K Design's March Release Inspiration Blog Hop -Day 3

Welcome back everyone!  I have three wonderful sets to show you today!  First off is one by Tami Mayberry called "Perfect Pendants"!  Here it is:
Don't you just love it?!  You can make all sorts of cute banners with these images or you can use them in an unconventional way like I did with my card for today.
This card was super easy to make!  I simply embossed the diamond pattern on the card base then added the banner triangles and ribbons with a little bling in between!

Next up is an adorable set illustrated by Asela Hopkins, "Cute as a Bug."

For my card, I chose to use the adorable little caterpillar on the hammock--isn't he just too cute?!
I colored this little guy with my Copic markers and used Basic Grey designer paper, "Mellow".

And lastly, we have Nina Brackett's newest beauty, "Lovely Labels 3".  If you haven't seen her Lovely Labels  1 or Lovely Labels 2, you are missing out! These newest additions just as awesome, now adding a bit of "roughness" to her labels set in order to add ease in making masculine cards! Check out this gorgeousness:

Of course, I had to go with a good bit of vintage love for my card!  
How could I not use lace?  Hee hee!  No, this is not a masculine card but that's ok!  This set is very versatile--masculine, girly, vintage/shabby chic, it does these all well!  

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I love reading all your comments and seeing which cards you like best.  Best of luck to you all on winning these sets!



Now, get on over to the other design team member's blogs for more wonderful inspiration!



Have a wonderful day!
Janice :)

I'm so glad I don't have to choose one. They are all so perfect! I do love lace even on a masculine card. It's a bit of the "sender's" touch.
