Gina K February release inspiration blog hop: Day 1

Hi everyone! Welcome to Day 1 of the Gina K Designs DT Inspiration Blog Hop were we hope to inspire you with many beautiful ideas for the sets released in February! As you hop through the blogs, make sure to leave a comment on each because we will choose a few random commenters and they will win a grab bag that could have anything from stamps to paper to embellishments!! 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 2 sets:
A Year of Flowers 2, illustrated by Melanie
All Occasion Tags 2, illustrated by Tami
First up is a card I made for A Year of Flowers 2.  This is my favorite flowers stamp set Melanie has illustrated so far.  I think it's because the flowers have a whimsical feel to them.  I like realistic flowers, but I am drawn to those with a playful flair.
 For this card I went with monochromatic colors and used Lots of Dots in the background embossed in white.  I stamped the flowers in yellow and cut them out and added yellow pearls to the center.
 Next up is a card I made for All Occasion Tags 2.  I LOVE this set as the frame images coordinate with Spellbinders' Grommet Tags dies.  I used some of Gina's new Color Companions line on this one.  I used Tickled Pink buttons, Dark Sage ink and Powder Blue ribbon.
 Ready for the hop?  Check out all the amazing designs and inspiration: 
Melanie Muenchinger – Illustrator A Year of Flowers 2 
Tami Mayberry - Illustrator All Occasion Tags 2 
 Thanks for stopping by, here are a couple close up pictures.  Enjoy the hop!

  24. I love your cards today. They are simply fabulous! I think the sentiments and frames set is one of the most versatile sets I've seen, and I just LOVE the way you used it in your second card. But I think I love the quiet simplicity of your first card even more. The white on white with just a touch of yellow is just perfect for the early part of spring, with white blossoms on apple trees, yellow daffodils, and white crocuses.
