Gina K Designs February 2014 Release Inspiration Hop--Day 2!

Hey y'all! Welcome to day 2 of our Inspiration Hops for you this month!


The Cast and Crew for Gina K Designs welcomes you to another fabulous Inspiration Blog Hop! Gina, along with the Cast and Crew and Guest Designers, 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 Gina K. Designs products! To see the full list of winners check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hops.

Up first today we have Becky Oehler's newest set, Folk Filigree. This set is just sooo fun to work with! The combinations of the little flowers and greenery are endless! Here is what I did for today:


For this card, well, it started out being a one layer card! LOL! At least that is wha tI had in mind...I masked off the area that has the flowers stamped in it, was doing a faux layer, then decided to add a bit more, lol! I always do that...one reason it takes me for ages to make a card! ANYways, this is what I ended up with! Love the little flowers in this set! Ok, next up is Theresa Momber's new set, Signs Of Spring...Here is what I have done with this set for today:


I stamped the crocus flowers onto vellum and heat embossed them in white. I had intentions of coloring them again, like I did for my card at the release party, but then decided they looked good on just white! :D I LOVE how Theresa's sets are so 'true' I call them...very realistic images! LOVE it!

Ok, ready for more eye candy? Here ya go:

You never disappoint me. Your work is always so fantastic. I can see that using vellum is getting to be more and more popular. Glad I have quite a bit on hand. I like how you embossed in white and then did an overlay of the pattern paper. Gives it such a soft look!
