Gina K. Designs September 2020 Release Inspiration Blog Hop - Day 1!!

Hey Y'all!!  


Welcome to your inspiration Blog hop for September!  I LOVE love love this release, because Fall is my favorite!  :D  Can't wait to  share all of the wonderful goodies with you and inspire you!  Today we are featuring two stamp sets from our illustrators.  And as always, dont forget to leave your comment along the way for your chance to win one of the $50 gift certificates from Gina K., one from each day!  Ok, lets get to it!  

Up first is Melanie Muenchinger's new set, Beautiful Bees:

matching dies too!

Here is what I have done for today:

Where's the bee?  It flew off!  ha!  No, for this one I just used one of the gorgeous flowers in the set.  I didnt color it, but swished on some bleach onto the cardstock, then stamped it in matching ink of the cardstock, keeping it pretty simple!  Master Layouts 2 was used in this too along with the thankful word die.  Here is a bee though!  I showed this in our Facebook group last night:

I used a stencil first then I colored and fussy cut the flower and the bee.  I created the honeycomb with the stamp, and a suggestion...leave spaces between the honeycomb when stamping it out, it will look better!  I drew the black lines on mine cause you couldnt really tell sinc I stamped in the same color of ink as the cardstock I used, lol!  

Ok, up next is Hannah Drapinkski's new set, Innocent Orchid:

This flower is gorgeous!  and huge!  Here is what I have for today:



I slapped some water coloring on it after heat embossing it.  I just let the paint go whereever it wanted, lol!  I also used the Master Layout 1 die on this card.  Super easy when You do like this!  

Ok, next up on the hop will be the oh so awesome 


All of these stamps are available now!  Here is my affiliate link if you would like to  shop, at no cost to you, just lets me earn a little bit extra...so I can buy more Gina K. Stuffs too!  haha!  Truly!!
