Gina K. Designs. April Inspiration Blog Hop: Garden Silhouettes (One free with 3), Timeless Textures

Hello my friends! Welcome to Day 1 of Gina K. Designs April Inspiration Blog Hop! Today we are showcasing 2 beautiful sets: Garden Silhouettes (this set is free with the purchase of 3 sets!) and Timeless Textures (love this set very much!!)

Garden Silhouettes: This set is fantastic for CAS and quick cards. I made a little experiment using Memento Sweet Plum Ink and here are the results:

With Sympathy: I added enough ink to the image, then sprayed the image using Mini Mister (water mixed with Perfect Pearls) and stamped the image onto White CS. I didn't like it much, so I added Pink Copic marker around the image, this way the borders get a little darker and also creates a little shadow. Then die-cut, emboss and stencil it.




Many Thanks: I did the same as before, but here I sprayed the image from about 15 inches distance and stamped it.
I paper pierced the top corners and added pearls.








Birthday Wishes: This image was stamped the regular way. No spray used.
The patterned paper is from the new StampTV Kit. I added some Gold Nailhead in opposite corners.












Timeless Textures: I made a couple of cards using this set :)

Happy Birthday: For this card I stamped the smallest images onto White Cardstock, using Tea Dye Distress, Memento Sweet Plum and Memento Tangelo. I matted them with Sweet Mango, Kraf and Lilac CS! I stamped the largest image at the bottom and  the sentiment on top. The sentiment is from Theresa's new set: Follow your dreams.



With Love: For this card I used the polka dot image, using the stamp-a-majig I created the whole BG. The sentiment is from Garden Silhouettes set.
