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

Hey ya'll!! Welcome back to our second day of inspirational hops for you! And up today again we have two new stamp sets. Up first we have Theresa Momber's newest set called Whimsical Spring ...here is what I have done with this set for today:



As usual, Theresa's nature stamps are just so much fun to stamp with...and color if you want...I made a circle cut out opening in my card and put the decorated circle on the inside. I stamped the butterfly but did not color it...just showing you don't have to be a color'er' to do the butterfly! LOL!

Up next is Tami Mayberry's newest set called Girl Talk...here is mine for today with this set:



I just love the fun sentiments in this set! LOL! And what a fun expression on this girl's face! :D Love it!

These are really pretty Cathy - I especially like the look of the light green stamped leaves behind the sentiment, I have to try that effect some time, it looks terrific!

Susan said...

Love the cards. The color combo and window on the first one are terrific. Great job!

Sharon said...

Wow that first card is a showstopper. Great paper and colour choice on card number 2

ibalady said...

love the purple and sage green color scheme. they are so pretty together. sometimes a card doesn't need coloring . in this case i agree,
it was'nt necessary. for your 2nd card, the pattern paper is more than just the background , its a jumping off place for the rest of your card. WTG

Gayle said...

Gorgeous cards, Cat. Love your color choices.

Cheryl Winget said...

Really great cards. The two-tone butterfly is beautiful. Love the Girl Talk card, too. So funny!
