Gina K. Designs – February Inspiration Blog Hop – Day 1



Hello Monday Friends!

The Cast and Crew for Gina K. Designs welcomes you to day one of another fabulous blog hop celebrating the new February 2017 release created by our wonderful team of illustrators.

These stamp sets are so much fun and so very versatile!  You will be able to create amazing projects using each individual set or by combining images and sentiments from multiple sets. 

We hope to inspire you with some beautiful card projects as you hop along to each of the designer’s blogs!  Today we are showcasing stamp sets from Melanie Muenchinger and Theresa Momber.  

Take a look at the Fabulous Flowers stamp set from MelanieI pretty much could NOT stop using this set.  And I have soooooo many more ideas to try out too.



I used so many images from this set.  Of course I used the vase but then I grabbed six images (plus their fillers) and stamped them together to make the flowers and the very full greenery.  It took a bit of masking, but it was totally worth it!  I also used some Copic markers to added shading to the flowers, leaves and vase.  I added Nuvo drops to the vase to give it just a bit more dimension. And finally I added a twine bow.  I am not a purple girl....but then again...maybe I am!

Next up is the Framescape-Simply Spring stamp set from Theresa.  This set can be used to make stunning cards, masculine or feminine for sure.


I used black for all my image stamping, but then decided to grab a few Copic markers to add some interest to the card.  Then I added the jewels and I LOVE the way it turned out!




Enjoy the gorgeous inspiration samples from the team and then comment on each blog for your chance to win a $20.00 Gina K. Designs gift certificate.  To find out who won, check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hop.

Love what you did with the frame set. The balloons pop the way you created them with the rhinestones in the balloon. The flower card is lovely. It looks like the perfect card to say sorry.
