Gina K March release inspiration blog hop: Day 1


Hi everyone!  The Design Team for Gina K. Designs welcomes you to another fabulous Inspiration Blog Hop. Gina and the Design Team will inspire you with many beautiful ideas! And as you hop through their blogs, make sure to leave a comment on each of them because we will choose a few random commentors who will each win a grab bag of deeply etched, pre-cut Gina K. Designs stamps! To see the full list of winners check the Big News forum at Stamp TV a couple of days after the hops!!

Today we are spotlighting the sets, Wild Flowers and Masculine Tags,  illustrated by Melanie Muenchinger and Tami Mayberry respectively. First up is a card using Wild Flowers illustrated by Melanie.  These flowers are 2 step stamping, meaning you can stamp the flower in one color and the flower centers and stems in another.  I used a small piece of washi tape (across the bottom) as my color inspiration for this card.  The bottom detail is from the new Spellbinders Classic Decorative Six inserts.
Next I have a simple Father's Day card using Masculine Tags illustrated by Tami.  This set is designed to coordinate with one of my FAVORITE Spellbinders labels, Twenty-Two.  LOVE.  I used a strip of GKD pattern paper from the Pool Side pack.  I also used a Spellbinders Edgeabilities insert for the black strip pattern and used 2 of the negative pieces to accent the Father's Day sentiment.  I love the masculine images in this set, a go-to set for guy cards for sure!!
Check out all the amazing designs and inspiration:
 Thanks for stopping by!  I will leave you with some close up pictures.  Be sure to come back Tuesday when I showcase the Stamp TV Kit, Petals and Wings!!
