Gina K. Designs Inspiration Blog Hop Day 2

Hello my friends and welcome to day 2 of Gina K. Designs Inspirational Blog Hop. Today we have 3 great set
  • Dogwood & Butterfly illustrated by Theresa Momber
  • Label Borders illustrated by Tami Mayberry
  • Friends are Flowers Duo
Dogwood & Butterfly: Love this set very much! The images are great for just stamping and leave them as it is or for nice coloring. I decided to color the dogwood with Inktense Pencils. I stamped the image twice on Watercolor Paper in Stazon Black Ink, cut out one to do add after the cards was done.  I cut it in different angles so I can show a 3D effect. I added some Gold Gala Glitz in the center of each flower. I die-cut, emboss and stencil it with Oval Nestabilities, then mat it with Beaded Oval Nestabilities in Innocent Pink CS.
The background was a piece of Innocent Pink CS and Patterned Paper from Butterfly Garden by Pink Paislee, add zig-zag stitches, then add a strip of punch out P.P, add mini pearls and adhere it to card base.



Label Borders: This set is super versatile. For my card I stamp the heart border and sentiment in Barn Door Distress Ink, then using Grommet Tag Dies, I die-cut the border, then ink all edges. I added a couple of large pearls.
My card base is a piece of White Cardstock, I pleated a strip of Patterned Paper from Hometown Summer by Pink Paislee, then added some stitches and adhere it to card. Die-cut some butterflies, ink all edges and adhere it to card. Die-cut and emboss a piece of Red Hot CS using Scallop Circle Nestabilities, mat it a piece of die-cut PP using Circle Nestabilities. Adhere it to card base, add sentiment with pop dots and red paper roses.


Friends are Flowers Duo: Love this CAS (kind of) card! I had another idea when I started creating this card, but then I ended up with this pretty card, which I love very much.
I started my card with a piece of White CS as a card base. Die-cut a piece of Sweet Mango CS using Fleur de Lis Rectangle Shapeabilities, adhere it to card. Stamp image on White CS in Mememto Tuxedo Black, color it with Copic Markers and stamp sentiment in Vintage Photo Distress Ink. Die-cut, emboss and stencil image with Rectangle Nestabilities. Tie on Tangerine Twine and make a bow. Adhere image to card base with large pop dots. Add Pearls and Star Dust Stickles to flowers.
