Hello my friends and welcome to Day 1 of Gina K. Designs May Inspiration Bog Hop. Today we are showcasing two wonderful sets: Vogue Vases illustrated by Theresa Momber  and Border Bling illustrated by Melanie Muenchinger.

Here are the projects I have for you today.

Vogue Vases:

Directions:
  • Make card base from Ivory Cardstock.
  • Emboss a piece of the new "Just Peachy" Cardstock using Swiss Dots, ink all edges and adhere it to card.
  • Cut a strip of Just Peachy CS, punch side borders, emboss the inside using one of the Organic Flourish Borders, ink all edges and mat it with a piece of Ivory CS. Tie on Ribbon and adhere it to card.
  • Stamp image on Ivory CS, vase border in Brown Ink and Leaves in Certainly Celery. Stamp vase in Tea Dye Ink. Stamp flower on patterned Paper (Butterfly Garden), cut them out, ink all edges and glue them to card. Add nits of Green Copic Marker to leaves.
