Gina K May release inspiration blog hop: Day 1

Hi everyone!  Welcome to Day One of the Gina K Designs May Release Inspiration hop!  Today we are spotlighting 2 fabulous sets, Vogue Vases and Border Bling.  

First up, is a card using Vogue Vases which is designed by Theresa Momber.  This amazing set features 2 vases, 4 blooms, a shelf and 3 sentiments.  I stamped and trimmed out the flowers and curled them slightly with my stylus and added a rhinestone in the center.  The pattern paper is from My Mind's Eye, their new Lime Twist collection.
Next up is my sample using Border Bling which is designed by Melanie Muenchinger.  This set features 5 shapes that match Nestabilities, 5 sentiments and several accent stamps.  I embossed the "bling frame" in black and added some small rhinestone accents.  I embossed the white cardstock every 1/2" in a lattice design. 
For even more samples of these new sets, you can visit each of the GKD Design Team blogs listed below.  Make sure you leave a comment here and on each of their blogs because Gina is going to draw two randomly chosen winners from all of the blog comments, and each will get a stamp set of their choice valued at up to $24.95!  Gina will announce the winners on her blog tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by!  I will leave you with a couple close up pictures.  Be sure to come back Tuesday as we continue with the Inspiration Hop after the Memorial Day weekend!

  74. Hi Michelle~

    These are beautiful! I love the flowers and the vase! The paper on the vase is wonderful...adds so much texture...or are they all rhinestones? Knowing you they probably are!! This is a wonderful card for any reason! I love it!

    The second card could have been sent to you! It describes you! I love all of the black rhinestones...I can't imagine placing all of them!

    I hope you and your family have a safe and wonderful Memorial Day Weekend! I hope that there is a moment to remember all of the men and women who gave their lives for us to have the freedoms we have. I am so grateful to their families. It is overwhelming me this year.

    Your cards are beautiful! Thank you for sharing!

  85. I love both of your cards and the way you put the elements together, but if I had to choose a favorite, it would be the blue card. I really like the ribbon and flower you used.

  86. The scor pal background really sets the stage for your Vogue Vase card. The green and rhinestone flowers lets the background colors come through. Both cards are simply elegant and let the sets speak for themselves.
