Gina K Design June Release Inspiration Blog Hop, Day 1!!!

Hey ya'll!! Welcome to our first day of some wonderful inspiration hops for you! Im sure you will find something to inspire you along the way! Hope you and yours had a wonderful 4th of July weekend if you are in the USA, it was very relaxing here, loved it!

Ok, up first we have Melanie Muenchinger's newest set...its called The Vine...Oh what fun this one is! If you love to color AND even if you dont, like my card here:



...you are going to love this beautiful set! I did a bit of color 'flicking' I call it on the white leaves for this one...water added to some ink and then flicked it on before cutting them out, to go with my distressing! It just will not show up very good in my picture! Ive tried a gazillion times taking a better one...so this is as good as I got, lol!

Next up is Tami Mayberry's newest set called All Occasion Tags and they fit perfectly with Spellbinder's Grommet tags, LOVE that! Here is what I did for today:



I can see me using this set for many quick all occasion cards! I love having a handy set like that, that you can do up really quick and look like you spent alot of time on it, but really didnt, lol! On this, I layered it with Spellbinders labels 14..and there are so many other ways to layer or not even use ANY Spellbinders on, which some of my fellow DT might be showing you today!! Ready for more awesome inspiration? Here ya go...and dont forget to comment on all blogs! Gina will be picking 2 random winners to win one of these sets!

I saw the "flicking" Cat and it really adds just that subtle touch of depth on those leaves. Great idea. I'm calling the second card "retro" because it reminds me of the 50's and wouldn't I love to take that train back for a moment or two. LOL.
