Gina K Designs December Release Inspiration Hop, Day 1!

Hey ya'll!! Welcome to our December Gina K Design Release Inspiration Hop! So excited to share my samples with you with these awesome sets! Up first today we have Melanie Muenchinger's newest set called, Stately Flowers 2. 2nd in her sate flowers series...LOVE it! Here is my creation that I showed a sneak peek here on my blog yesterday:



And i also had to try it out on some kraft cardstock, lol!



On the first card, I was in the mood to color, so used some copic markers and took my time in coloring that gorgeous big flower in the set...so fun and relaxing sometimes...and then, on the 2nd card on the kraft, I just wanted to show you don't have to be one that colors, you can do like this! :D I love how this turned out..and all the coloring I did was with one grey markers...around the edges!

Up next is Theresa Momber's newest set called Mountain Wilderness. I decided to make a masculine card for my sample today:



I am so loving those vertical sentiments in this set too! On this card, I think I will have to write something corny on the inside like...'have a howling good time!' haha!

Ok, ready for more awesome eye candy? Here ya go! Links to my fellow DT!

KonaRose said...

Aloha, Cat,
I'm back (was here last night, too). I can't get over how beautiful your floral cards are - one is full of energy, depth of colors and the other is simple, white embossing. Both are stunning. Your manly card is beautifully layered, has the white embossing, and simply stated. All great cards - thank you, Rosy

Susan Sieracki said...

Wow...that pink and black together is so dramatic. I really like the two completely different looks with the same flower. But your wolf card...wowza...very nice.
