Gina K Designs November Release Inspiration Hop, Day 2!!

Hey ya'll!! Welcome to our 2nd day of inspiration hops for you this month! I know I say it every time, but I just LOVE this month's sets...seriously, I guess I can never get enough, lol! I am already looking forward to NEXT month even, haha! Ok, up today, we have 2 new sets and one duo to showcase for ya. Up first is Theresa Momber's newest called Dogwood and Butterflies... two of my favorite things! Here is what I did with it:



Yea, you know I can't let my kraft cardstock stay neglected too long, lol! I did a sort of spotlighting here, just colored the one dogwood flower and cut it out and added a dimensional to it before attaching...love white and kraft together..but then, I love al lcolors with kraft so that isnt saying much is it? LOL!

Up next is Tami Mayberry's newest set called Label Borders This set has sooo many possibilities!!! I decided to make a card with matching decorated tin...: edited to add: Yes! This is the tea tin that Gina K carries! It can be found HERE!!



Told ya I couldnt leave my kraft cardstock alone, lol!! I love how this turned out! I measured around the tin, which is 9 inches, cut a strip that long and then stamped the stamp from Tami's set in the middle of that strip before cutting it out around the edges. This made it meet in the back and doesnt look bad at all, even though it isn't stamped.

Ok, up next we have another duo called Friends are Flowers...and these now sell for 7.95 in the Gina K store!! These would be so awesome when sending a Christmas card to just slip into the card without taking up much room at all! Here is what I did with this duo:



This was a super quick card! I just stamped the floral image in cream and olive green on the green panel and left them uncolored...see? you do not have to be a coloring goddess to make it look good, Im sure not and I think this looks good! :D Ok, ready for more awesome eye candy?!! Here ya go:

And on a more personal note...the foot is feeling lots better...guess the docs know a BIT about what they say, haha! The more I stay off of it, the better it will get, just got to give it time to heal and I can already tell a difference today in it...so that is a good thing to quote Martha! :D

Wow Cat these are gorgeous. Just love your two kraft cards. I was going to ask what background stamp you used on the tin/Birthday card until I realized you used MME Life Styles dp. Just beautiful.

Just Beautiful! TFS!

mermaid fenicia said...

Those are really nice items. ^_^ Now I really wish I had the money to buy those stamps.

Beautiful projects. I love the butterfly card--elegant but quick with no coloring! It's easier to stay put when snacks and beverage of choice in a thermal carafe are nearby.

Giovana said...

Love your cards Cat!! I didin't use any Kraft this time, well, I have to make 2 more cards, we'll see. I love Kraft too!
Hope you are feeling better.
