A Year of Flowers Book Blog Hop

Hey ya'll!! Thank you for hopping along today with the Gina K. Design Team!! If you arrived here from Carolina Buchting's blog, then you're right where you should be. You can always go to StampTV to start from the beginning. The inspiration for today's hop came from Melanie Muenchinger's new book called, A Year of Flowers.



While you can make every design in the book with Melanie’s all occasion A year of Flowers Stamp Set, today’s samples showcase her coordinating florals, which can also be used with the book's tutorials and designs, and provide endless options and more value for your money. We are excited to share cards and projects we created using some of our favorite flower sets designed by Melanie! We love her new book and know you will too - don't miss out on getting your very own copy which you can purchase HERE!

Leave comments along our hop today to enter to win one of Melanie's coordinating floral sets of your choice. The more comments you leave the more chances to win! Melanie will draw a name randomly from one blog and post the winner tomorrow morning. She is also giving away her Crazy Daisy digital patterned paper FREE if you link Gina's video or her post, please see Melanie's blog for details! Good Luck!


For my sample today, I decided to use Melanie's stamp set called Pressed Flowers and it's a little Andy Warhol inspired:



This was a really CAS card for me...it came together pretty quickly! I love that about this Pressed Flowers set, you can use the solid images in so many different ways too! In the book are several different tutorials that could be used for this stamp set also! LOVE it!

Hope you're finding some great inspiration and wonderful designs to get your creativity jump-started! You can find the newest stamp sets and lots of wonderful accessories in Gina's Store. And then join us on StampTV for the challenges and surprises and crafty videos galore!!!

Now your next stop on the hop is the awesome Donna Baker's Blog

Thanks so much for joining us in this fun hop today! This book is really an awesome addition to anyone's collection...I am so thrilled to have mine! :D I told Melanie that I was going to send it to her to autograph for me too!

Really like this idea. Instead of ribbon all the time, use up some of my vellum for accents. Thanks so much. It does really just ad that extra to an already unique card.

This is a wonderful card...so clean and simple but still full of cheer and vibrancy. Thanks for sharing.
