Gina K November release inspiration blog hop: Day 2

Hi everyone!!  Welcome to Day 2 of the Gina K Designs November Release Inspiration Blog hop!  Today we are spotlighting the sets, Dogwood and Butterfly illustrated by Theresa Momber and Label Borders illustrated by Tami Mayberry. Several of the DT are also showing samples for the Friends are Flowers Duo.

First up is my card using Dogwood and Butterfly.  I just love the flowers and butterflies in this set!  I did something different with this one.  I stamped the flowers on the paper directly and colored them in.  No Spellbinder dies (gasp), no cutting them out -just some simple stamping and I love how it turned out!
  Next, is my card using Label Borders.  This set has 4 decorated label images with lots of great sentiments to go in them.  They also coordinate with the set, All Occasion Tags.  I couldn't decide if I was making a birthday or a wedding card, so I made something that could be either!  I love the starkness of the red, white and black elements.  I made the flower from the Spellbinders Spiral Blossoms One die out of pattern paper.  Super pretty IRL.  Once again I used Christmas paper for a non-Christmas card.  This paper is Echo Park, Dots and Stripes the "Christmas" Collection.  My layout was based on an older Mojo Monday sketch.
 And lastly here is my card using the Friends are flowers Duo.  I was a bit confused on what kind of flower this was, but I took a shot at coloring it pink.  Can't go wrong with a pink flower, right? LOL! 
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 receive a fabulous grab bag of stamps!  Gina will announce the winners on her blog tomorrow.
 Thanks for stopping by!  I'll leave you with some close up pictures.
