Gina K February Release Preview Day 2!!

Hey all! Welcome back to day two of our previews this month...and boy do we have some more goodies for you! Two more new stamps sets! Up first is Melanie Muenchinger's newest set called Pressed Flowers and OH my! The possibilities with this set are just endless! All of the different techniques you could do...but I decided to do a lazy way of stamping! Here is mine:

I first used the image of the sunflower from the set and stamped it with Vivid straw ink, then I got out A Year of Flowers set and stamped right on top of it. I LOATHE using a stamp-a-mig and I was wanting to show that it can still look good and NOT use it, did I succeed? LOL! I really like how it turned out myself! I am going to have some more with different techniques with this set coming up soon too! LOVE it!

Next up is Rupa Shevde's newest set called O Baby!...this is just an adorable set! Here is my card with it:

I dont really have much call for baby cards for some reason...but decided to break down and do! I love how this turned out too!

Ok, now for more inspiration!

The Pressed Flowers stamp set was designed to be a perfect companion to Melanie's A Year of Flowers set! It is also a perfect stand alone set as each bold stamp image lends itself to many techniques as you will see on each designer's blogs tonight!

Start with the Illustrator's blog Melanie Muenchinger and then visit these designer's blogs for even more samples with this stamp set and Rupa Shevde's O Baby Stamp set as well!
