Gina K August release inspiration blog hop: Day 1

Hi everyone!   Welcome to Day One of the Gina K Designs August Release Inspiration hop!  Today we are spotlighting the fabulous Stamp TV Kit called, Falling For You.  Seriously, there is something in this for everyone.  Another fabulous kit Gina!
 I fell in love with the little house image and had to ink it up first.  My card also uses some Dutch Mustard Soup papers from JilliBean Soup.  Perfect match to the cutsie feel of the house IMO!

My next card uses the long stemmed flower image.  You know, at first I thought the blooms were butterflies (cute right?), turns out they aren't, but still just as cute!   I used some MME Lime Twist, "Life of the Party" and some buttons from my stash.  Love the happy colors in this paper pack!



For more samples of the STV Kit, 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 continue with the Inspiration Hop and preview 2 more sets!

Card Deets:
Stamps - Falling for You
Paper - White, Dutch Mustard Soup (JilliBean Soup), Lime Twist "Life of the Party" (My Mind's Eye)
Accessories - Buttons, twine, silver cord, copic markers, rhinestones, Baker's Twine, Spellbinders Classic Triple Scallop Edgeabilities

P.S.  I am trying out making my pictures in the Extra Large mode instead of Large.  Are they too big this way, or OK?  Just curious?

  2. Hi Michelle! These are beautiful! Love the way you color. I just got my huge lot of birthday copics today, my first ones ever, so I will be playing with them in about 6 minutes!!
    How did you do the scallop on the first card?
    You pics are the perfect size. I wouldn't change a thing.
    Cheers!
