Gina K Design May Release Inspiration Blog Hop! Day 1


Hey y'all!  Glad you stopped by!







The Cast and Crew for Gina K Designs welcomes you to a special blog hop featuring the new Tiny Textures incentive stamp sets from the May StampTV Release Party! We hope to inspire you with some beautiful card projects as you hop along to each of the designer’s blogs!

Tiny Textures is a fun stamp set that allows you add a splash of something fun to your scrapbook pages or will help you to make a cool stamped background to your card projects. The “Just Because” sentiment from the set is ideal to add the finishing touch to a quick, but thoughtful card!

Enjoy the gorgeous inspiration samples from the team and then comment on each blog for your chance to win a $20 Gina K Designs gift certificate! To see who won, check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hop.

If first I have for you today Is the new set by Melanie Muenchinger, Fill It With Flowers.  And as always, is packed full of goodies that you will have endless possibilities of how to create with it!  

Here is my first card to share with you:
 

You can never get tired of a daisy!  At least I dont!  Daisies and Sunflowers (No sunflowers in this set)  ...both my favorite!  I first stamped it in white ink and then scribbled with the big white pen by Faber Castell. I then stamped back over it with black.  Im gonna try this again, paying attention more to how I do it.  I was mad because of how it turned out when coloring it so had me a fit and scribbled, haha!  And another card:

This is Billy's Pick of the Release!  And its  another daisy!  I did this one in a vibrant color, love those you see in the florist shop!  This one I colored with watercolors by Prisma that I have.  I made is shiny by embossing the whole image with heat embossing. I did some fussy cutting on this one but I love how the flower looks in the cup!

Up next is Theresa Mombers newest, Country Road 2.  I swear that just must be sneaking down here to my back yard for some of these ideas!  :D  Here is my first one:

I made a card that opens sideways but positioned the front panel to cover most of inside.   Here is the open card?


I really like how this one turned out!  Loving them sunsets around here too, when its not raining!  LOL

Loads of pretty cards her. I especially like the flower card from the release night.

Sharon Fontenot said...

Looks like Cat did it AGAIN! Sometimes I wish I could come up with some of the media/embelly combos that you use. I love every card on this page. I'm pinning them all and I may try to make a couple of them.

Claire Brennan said...

Ah these are a super bunch of cards Cat, I LOVE that big white daisy, such a neat technique. Love the bow on the flower stem in card 2, fabby idea that I am so going to pinch! The shaped front on that Country Roads card is fabby too, love the sunrise in there! I thought your party cards were brill, it all went so fast that I don't think I got to comment on each one, but i thought it was genius to turn the weather vane into a morning cockerel! Super idea! terrific cards!

Zelda C said...

Such pretty and varied range of cards!

Loretta Rush said...

Amazing cards! Thanks for sharing!

Linda S said...

Cat: Thank you for these very inspiring and lovable daisies. I am both color challenged and flower challenged (but I am trying to work on both "issues"), but these feel like something that I could actually do reasonably well. However, I really, really, really like your Country Roads 2 barn with its "special cut."!!! It was a good reminder that the front of a card does not always have to give 100% coverage to the inside.

PS: I also really like the five "extras" that you presented at the Release Party. The Design Team makes so many beautiful things, it is often hard to choose which I like the most.

Rosy Newlun said...

Wooooya Cat, what truckloads of talent! Look at all the sunsets and night skies - me LIKEY a lot!!! Great ideas for using solid images like that. And the flowers - my mom's fav was the daisy, too. Me? Hydrangea girl. Thank you for all the examples busy lady, much love!!!

Cheryl Depler said...

So much detail and fun! Thanks.

Terri (blindstamper) said...

Your cards are beautiful.

Sharon said...
