The morning after...


What a fantastic release party! You guys are so much fun and it's always so great to have a chance to hang out and chat while playing games, watching videos, playing along with contests and watching those beautiful Design Team samples scroll through the party chat thread. :)

And today, the team has put together a fabulous blog hop featuring two of the new stamp sets released last night at http://www.ginakdesigns.com/

Introducing Timeless Textures and our new One free with 3- Garden Silhouettes.



Whether you use the Timeless Textures to embellish flowers, buttons and backgrounds, or blend it with solid stamps like Garden Silhouettes to gently kiss the stamp with texture, you will have this set within reach all the time.



And, most of the shapes can be cut using nestabilities too!




Check out the Video we created using Timeless Textures and Garden Silhouettes here- Garden Texture Card Project


Check out what the rest of the team has created to inspire you this morning, and then, make sure you leave a comment on each of the blogs because we're giving away some stamps!
Two lucky readers will each win two stamp sets of their choice along with a surprise embellishment pack including ribbons, buttons and more!

We will choose the winners from all of the blogs combined so the more blogs you comment on, the better your chances!

Enjoy today's hop and good luck!




We will announce the winners on Monday morning so take your time and happy hopping!



Make it a great day!



Hugs,
Gina K.
