Gina K. Designs February Release Inspiration Blog Hop!

Hey Y'all!  Glad you stopped by!



We are so very excited to be sharing a New Mini Kit, Wreath Builder, a new set by Alicia K., Stippled Flowers, and a new incentive called Doodle Sayings.  OH!  and a little Tidy Towel to clean up all that stamping you gonna be do with these new sets!  :D 

You should have come from Rubeena's Blog,  one of our awesome Guest Designers this month!  And if you get lost on the way, you can always go back to Gina K. 's Blog and start over or figure out where you were at!  :D  




Be sure also to follow along on the blog hop and to comment on each blog because we will be picking a winner for a $50 Gift certificae to Gina K. Designs!  You can check the Big News Forum a few days after the hop to see who won!

Up first for you today, I have the new mini kit, Wreath Builder.  And I cannot come close to telling you how much I am totally loving this set!  I have stamped up so many things with the template and images!  It is a Blast to play with and easy learning curve, if any!  Here is what I have for today:

and the inside:
I used Gink K. cardstock in Warm Cocoa and Peach Bellini.  I used the template to stamp out the wreath in the first photo and also used the same images to stamp the inside to tie it together.  This card took me maybe 5 minutes!  And I'm a slow card maker, lol! 


Next up for me is the Stippled Flowers by Alicia K. and its sooo much fun!!  Here is my card for today:

For this card, I used an embossing folder on the upper part of the base and then drew the lines on bottom area with the Scorpal.  I colored the flowers and the base with copics and pencils.  I love these flowers in this set...omg so fun!!  You know a stamp is drawn good if you take and color and it makes a beautiful image without much effort!  :D

And one more from me today with the new incentive set, Doodle Sayings:

I ordered some markers that were suppose to be metallic looking even on black, and they are!  I LOVE how this flower coloed out in white!!  I loved coloring them on black i did a whole bunch! haha!
They are so pretty and shiny!  I also used the same flower to make the background with...stamped and then heat embossed that image in clear to create the bg.  Very subtle but pretty little touch i think!


 

Ok, ready for more eye candy?  Just follow these links below and leave my fellow DT and Guest Designers a comment on their blogs so we can get you entered to win the gift certifiate!





Next on your hop is  the oh so talented Donna!
Thanks once again for stopping by today!  I so enjoy reading your comments!  They truly inspire me!
