Gina K. Designs Inspiration Blog Hop - Day 1



Hello Monday Friends!

The Cast and Crew for Gina K. Designs welcomes you to another fabulous blog hop celebrating the new stamp sets by Gina K. and the illustrator team from Gina K. Designs!  We hope to inspire you with some beautiful card projects as you hop along to each of the designer’s blogs!  Today, we are featuring the stamp sets by Melanie Muenchinger (Pressed Flowers 2) and Theresa Momber. (Framescapes-Tropical Skies).



These stamp sets are beautiful and so very versatile!  You will be able to create amazing card projects using each individual set or by combining the images and sentiments from multiple sets from this release. Have fun and be creative! And don't forget:  Melanie's set, Pressed Flowers 2 has matching dies!

Enjoy the gorgeous inspiration samples from the team and then comment on each blog for your chance to win a $50 Gina K Designs gift certificate! To see who won, check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hop.


Here are a few of the projects I have created for today’s hop: 

First is my card using Melanie's beautiful Pressed Flowers 2 stamp set.  The dies for this set are fantastic and so worth the additional cost in your cart!  I used some of the Wild Dandelion foil to add some sparkle to the bottom part of my mat on this one.  And I also used my white gel pen to dress up the black flowers just a little.


Next up, I used Theresa's Framescapes-Tropical Skies set.  I wanted to use some of the smaller stamps in the set as you can see below.  I am always at a loss for cards to attach to birthday presents, so this one is in my stash for the next birthday!

Absolutely gorgeous cards! I love a black BG and how colors just pop off it.
And I have a thing for wreaths, so the 2nd card really speaks to me. I always admire how someone stamps their own wreath so perfectly like this. Mine always come out crooked. lol
