A Year of Flowers Blog Hop!!

Thank you for hopping along today with the Gina K. Design Team!! If you arrived here from Emily's blog, then you're right where you should be. You can always go to StampTV to start from the beginning.  The inspiration for today's hop came from Melanie Muenchinger's new book called, A Year of Flowers.



While you can make every design in the book with Melanie’s all occasion A Year of Flowers set, today’s samples showcase her coordinating florals, which can also be used with the book's tutorials and designs, and provide endless options and more value for your money. We are excited to share cards and projects we created using some of our favorite flower sets designed by Melanie! We love her new book and know you will too - don't miss out on getting your very own copy which you can purchase HERE!

For my sample I used the basket and roses from Holiday Basket Set and the sentiment from Pressed Flowers Set.


Here is my sample:

Directions:
  • Make card base from White Cardstock.
  • Mat a piece of Innocent Pink Cardstock and Patterned Paper. Ink all edges and add stitches. Tie on ribbon.
  • Die-cut a piece of Fleur de Lis Square in Innocent Pink and a Square piece in White Cardstock.
  • Cut the Fleur de Lis Piece in half (diagonally), add it behind White Square piece and add stitches.
  • Add square piece to panel with Large Pop Dots.
  • Stamp basket and roses from Holiday Basket Set on White Cardstock in Memento Tuxedo Black. Color them with Markers and cut them out. Add handles to basket with silver brads.
  • Adhere them to card with small and medium pop dots.
  • Add pearls.
  • Stamp sentiment on mini tag and tie it on ribbon with twine.

Card Recipe:
  • Cardstock: White, Innocent Pink (Gina K. Designs)
  • Stamps: Holiday Basket & Pressed Flowers (Gina K Designs)
  • Paper: Victoria Garden (Echo Park Paper)
  • Embellishments: Pearls, Silver brads, Pink Seam Binding Ribbon, Pink Sorbet Twine (The twinery)
  • Accessories: Fleur de Lis Square Dies, Square Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Sewing machine, Cricut & George Basic Shapes Cartridge [to create tag], Copic markers, Pop dots.
