I have two creations I want to share with you today!  First up, this one:


 For this card, I first stamp the flowers onto the card stock with versamark ink and let it dry.  Decided I wanted a bit more pop so then stamped and using white embossing powder and outlines those ones with a very light grey copic marker W1).  I also took some of the leaves from this kit and stamped them onto vellum and heat embossed those with white too.  I like how the edges did for this, that you cant really see the cut edge after cutting out with the die because its vellum.   Cut a curve with a Spellbinders border die and added a piece of white doily on the back side to get this look on the bottom left edge.  All the other pretty obvious what I did...And now for my 2nd card...super quick distressed one!  :D





And since I had my embossing stuff out...I decided to emboss this flower too.  Clear embossing used on this one, then took a stamp pad (innocent pink) and stamped over the flower, which I did until I had a look I wanted then took a cloth and buffed off the flower.  Distressed the edges on this one and layered and all done!

Gina K Designs Mini Inspiration Hop!

Hey Y'all!  The Gina K Design team thought we would do a little inspiration hop for you while we are in between release!  It's using our newest stamps.  And today, Beth is going to be giving you a chance to win her awesome 'Lots Of Washi'  stamp set!  Just leave a comment on the blog posts...the more comments you enter, the better your chance to win!  Today, I only have one card at the moment.  As I am typing this, its 2:30 AM....I had 3 cards total done and Shady Cat was a BAD bad kitty and knocked my coffee all of the table...I was able to salvage this one though...
I used Melanie Muenchinger's newest set, Triple Play Frame.  This is a super easy CAS creation, and I am tickled to have salvaged it..but sad about my cards with Theresa's and Beth's sets!  Might get them worked up to show you later though.  Tomorrow will be another Mini Hop too!  Here are the links to my fellow DT   and their awesome creations:
