CardMaker/Gina K. Designs Spring Parade Blog Hop!

Hey y'all! CardMaker and Gina K Designs Have come together for a fun little hop today! We will be featuring the new StampTV kit, Spring Parade StampTV kit. It all starts at the CardMaker Blog! If you get lost along the way, you can always go back to it and find your place. If you have came from Carolina Buchting's Blog, then you are in the right spot!!

I had a hard time deciding which way I wanted to go with my card for today. I made a cutesy card too, but decided to go with this one instead! :D More my 'style' I think!



I stamped the flowers from the StampTV kit onto kraft paper and then punched out the circle. I used picket fence distress marker on the flowers, which did make them white, but I wanted them to really stand out, so I colored over them again with a white gel pen and this gave me the look I wanted! I have used tons of Graphic 45's Secret Garden line, did ALOT of distressing with distress inks in varying colors. The little tag is inserted into a pocket that is behind the flower. I also had an extra flower I made so I decorated one of the little wine bottles I love to collect to match the card! :D



Ok, on to your next stop! It is the oh so talented
