Gina K Designs March Release Inspiration Hop, Day 1!!



Hey ya'll!! So tickled you stopped in again for a bit of inspiration, I hope! :D

The Design Team for Gina K. Designs welcomes you to another fabulous Inspiration Blog Hop!!! Gina and the Design Team will inspire you with many beautiful ideas! And as you hop through their blogs, make sure to leave a comment on each of them because we will choose a few random comments and those stampers will each win a grab bag of deeply etched, pre-cut Gina K. Designs stamps! To see the full list of winners check the Big News Forum at StampTV a couple of days after the hops!!

Up first today we have Melanie Muenchinger's newest set called Wild Flowers..This set coordinates with her previous set entitled 'Wild About You'...but, you don't have to have the other set, this works just as well on it's own! Here is what I did for today with it:



I wanted to do a fun, bright Springtime card...and I always struggle with bright colors for some reason, lol! I stamped the flowers on a piece of sticky back canvas then but it out with oval nesties...I love how stamping on canvas looks, makes it look like you painted to me! That little strip of dp is from the new Petals and Wings StampTV kit, it has papers with the same name that come with the kit...LOVEing it!

Up Next we have Tami Mayberry's newest set called, Masculine Tags....Just in time for those Father's day cards, or brothers out there! This set also coordinates with Spellbinders' Labels 22!! Here are mine for today:



This first one is the full card of the peek I showed yesterday. I wanted to make it look like the start was 'bursting' out and I did this by taking a piece of cardstock, folding it to make it springy, then attached one end to the star and one to the card...I think it turned out pretty neat! :D And here is a super quick and CAS card I did for my brother's birthday coming up in July (wow! Im ahead for once, lol!)



Single layer, easy to mail even with the doodads I put on it! And this card shows that you do not have to have the Labels 22 die that matches...just so a fussy cut on it and it will still look good! Now, to keep up with it for about 5 months, haha!

Check out all the amazing designs and inspiration:



Thanks so much for stopping by today...see ya Monday!, same time, same place!! :D

The Kraft works perfectly with these masculine cards! Great cards, Cat!

I love your cards! Your flower card is bright and beautiful. Love how the pp goes so perfectly with the card stocks. Wonderful spring card. The way you popped out the star on your "superstar" card is so much fun! The car card is a perfect masculine card from the colors to the embellishments and the image. Great use of brads!

alex said...

Cat three stunning cards, love them all, you are such an inspiration, thank you :-)

Donna Phelan said...

Each card is so beautiful and unique! Your first card is so sunshine-y....love the layout and the pop out element on your 2nd card....and your third card is just a perfect masculine birthday card, those added gear charms just go so well with your theme! Well done!

Julie Overby said...

Awesome job with these stamp sets!

naneruth said...

Great colors and ideas!

Kay S said...

Fabulous cards, Cat! I love your bright card, I always have trouble with bright colors, too. Not sure why but somehow I never like the finished product. Love the pop up piece on the second card!

Makiko Jones said...

Fantastic cards! Love the spring look for the first one!

Scrapacat said...

I love all of these. I love interactive cards, so that second one is right up my alley. I know, it's shocking, but I do like the pink one very much. I am going to have to wait to get labels 22, so I appreciate seeing that it's not too hard to cut around. Have a great day, Cat!

I love your masculine cards! Your embellishments are great. I love the sprockets. The 2nd card is great with the star popping off the page and the extra stars in the corner are a neat addition. Your pink card is wonderful! I have rediscovered my "little girl" love of pink and have been enjoying seeing so many out pink offerings around the web.
