Gina K February release inspiration blog hop: Day 2

Hi everyone!  Welcome to Day 2 of the Gina K Designs DT Inspiration Blog Hop where 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 of Gina's products!! 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 new stamp set Signs of Spring, Illustrated by Theresa
Folk Filligree, illustrated by Becky
First up is a fun mini 3x3 card using Signs of Spring.  I stamped the leaf flourish in Grass Green GKD Color Companions ink and love it's perfect crisp results!  I cut it out and accented it with a couple flower sequins with a tiny rhinestone center.
Next up is a thank you card using Folk Filigree.  I had some fun with this one.  I stamped the flowers in various colors experimenting with the center style and colors all using GKD Color Companions ink. After I cut out the flowers and leaves, I played around until I found a look I liked.
The bottom was made with a stencil and some lightweight modeling paste!  Look at me getting all "technique-y" again!  lol!
Ready for the hop?  Check out all the amazing designs and inspiration:

  52. I like these stamps!!! too bad I read about the blog hop too late;) oh well, I don't do well with hops other than I enjoy doing them. I don't always get to the computer to turn it on to see if I won or not. I don't feel well most days and hurt. These hops are something I can do at my leisure and helps me feel part of a larger world than just my own. So thank you, con. PS: great inspirations!!!!!
