I created 2 very quick and easy cards for this hop:

I am in LOVE with the bestie birthday sentiment…I love it so much I used it twice for this hop…on 2 very different looking cards!   For the card above I used the cute border stamp, flower and sentiment from the Gina & Me stamp set available at Unity Stamp Co. inked up in GKD mango ink with some GKD chocolate brown ink on the tips of the flowers and on the sentiment.  My card base is 4.25 x 5.5 GKD pure luxury heavy weight white.  The patterned paper is from the GKD Ang & Me supplies kit and I believe it is my most favorite paper in the world!  I stamped the flowers and sentiment on GKD pure luxury layering weight card stock.  I cut out a felt heart and threw it on…why not right?

Gina K. Designs, Unity Stamp Co.

For this card my base is GKD dark chocolate.  I used more of that delicious Ang & Me patterned paper on top.  I stamped the heart image from the Gina & Me Unity Stamp Co. set in GKD white ink on vellum and then heat embossed it.  I used a speech bubble from my new GKD set Let’s Talk silhouette cut file (the cut file is free!) by enlarging it to fit the text.  I then stamped the sentiment using GKD white ink and heat embossed it (see how messy I was?).  The ribbon is GKD sweet mango organza.

There ya have it, 2 different cards using the same sets and even the same sentiment!

Hope you found some inspiration!  Enjoy the rest of the hop!

    Like the heart border stamp. Can see it used in many different types of cards. Looks good the way you used patterned paper and the stamp for borders.
