Gina K June release inspiration blog hop: Day 2

Hi everyone!  Welcome to Day 2 of the Gina K Designs May Release Inspiration Blog hop!  Today we are spotlighting the sets, Whimsical Wishes illustrated by Theresa Momber and Garden Fresh.

First up is a card I made using Whimsical Wishes.  This set was designed to coordinate with last month's set, Vogue Vases and both are favorites of mine!  I used some of the Dots and Stripes paper from Echo Park, Spellbinders Labels Seventeen and some baker's twine. 
My next card uses Garden Fresh.  I have to say, I love this set.  The fruit images are too cute and I don't have a set like it in my vast collection, so I am one happy girl!  I went with something a bit different on this card- I stamped my own background.  I used ColorBox inks for these images.  They stamp so crisp and clear!  There is a bit of Echo Park paper peeking out from under the gingham ribbon and some tiny bling on each fruit.

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 tomorrow as we finish the June Release Inspiration Hop with the 1 Free with Free set!
