Gina K. Designs April 2019 Release Inspiration Blog Hop - Day 2!

Hey Y'all!

Welcome welcome to day to of our inspiration blog hops!  I sure hope you are enjoying all of the awesome eye candy and that you are loving this release as much as us!  Today we have lots more to share, even a brand new kit!  And I so love how the packaging is on those kits, so pretty you ABOUT not want to open it... just a fleeting thought is all..haha!  And as always, be sure to leave your comments on all the blogs for you chance to win a $50 gift certificate to the store!  Gina will announce the winner on her blog Friday!  Ok, on with the show!

Up first today is the new kit by Gina K.   this kit Elegant Asters....omg you gonna LOVE it!



You get ALL of that that you see up there!  Cardstock, 2 stamp sets and then the dies!  Here is what I have done with this set:
This is a quick card for me, lol.  I used the Wreath Builder also with the set. Those little leaves fit perfectly!  I stamped onto brown recycled paper in black then heat embossed the sentiment in white.  I made this card in 20 minutes!  I knowwww!  I almost fainted myself, haha!  Here is another one:

This card took a bit longer,   lol.  I used distress crayons to create the background.  i was really going for what I ended up with, but made it work.  The flowers, sentiment and the edges of the torn vellum are heat embossed in silver.  I really like the silver embossing on the edges of the vellum like that, looks better IRL as always!  

New up is Lisa Hetrick's new set, Hugs and Wildflowers...another awesome set from Lisa!  

And matching dies!!

 here is one I  have made with this set:
For this card I also used the background stamp called Gauze.  Its very subtle so kinda hard to see also.  I then made a frame around the card base using a stamp from the set.  Stamped the sentiment and heat embossed it in black.  Did some distressing and punched some holes and tied a bow and tada!  all done! Thought process on this card took lots longer than to make!  And one more card with this set to share with you:

just a quick card made with the distress crayons again since I had them out.  I used them like water colors.  This card is a Billy Favorite!  :D  Ok, one last one from this set, lol.  I made a sunset, or tried!
Its my favorite time of the day!  I could watch sunsets forever!  The colors God produces...the TRUE artist!  And my feeble attempt of capturing that ...looking through a field of wild flowers!  :D
 Next up:
we also released several  little mini stamp  sets!  Here is one called Spring Joy

 and we got matching dies!
Here is what I did with this set:
Jelly bean peeps, haha!  I used the distress crayons again on these and used our new 'Smile' die too!  Arent they cute!?  And we also released other mini stamp sets with will have a matching die.  Below are the ones we released:
And a stand alone die, 

Whew!!  How awesome of a release is THIS!!? 

Ok, ready for some eye candy from my fellow DT?  Just follow the links below!
