Yesterday, I shared one sample - today I have several! I did a ton of therapeutic stamping this past week getting my first born ready for college! There was a steady stream of best friends coming over to say goodbye! I spent some time stamping for the kids to get snail mail these first few weeks away from home! Nothing like a card from home knowing you are missed! Karen filled out some for friends which I am mailing this week!


I love this pink/white/black combo with the leaf pattern. As you can see in the samples, it was one of my favorite stamps in the kit! Ha ha! The sentiment is from the incentive stamp this month, which I think is now available for purchase. If you have a kid off in college for the first time, you need this stamp set. I am actually having moms come over this week (non-stampers) to make cards for their kids!

Here is another card Karen filled out for her friend away at school!  



The leaf background makes an appearance again! HA HA!  This one with the incentive set for the kit - the black ink pops! This one I made for our swim coach who took the girls out on a team building activity! 



Same leaf set, but made it a wreath in a circular pattern!

 Here is the card I made for Karen to sneak on her desk before I left her dorm room.  I put the 8 page hand-written letter inside the envelope too! You can never tell them enough times how proud you are of them!



I finally did some therapeutic coloring with spectrum noir markers. I will send this card in a few weeks (trying to hold on to the last of the warm weather before everything in the world is pumpkin spice flavored).

This set is named for my daughter, Isabella, who we call Bella.  

The flag is one of the add on elements and this sentiment fits perfectly in it!

The elephant also comes with other elements such as flowers for Bella to hold! The sentiment is from Hippo Bird Day! <3

Here is a watercolored background card with Bella! 


I found the fairy in the sweet thing set and fell in love - look how cute she is!


Here is the fairy again with a strip of stars



The So Cool Set has a bunch of adorable ice creams with matching sentiments. I watercolored this!

Same cute sentiment, but different ice cream cone.  I used spectrum noir markers to color in the ice cream cone!

The Cast and Crew for Gina K Designs welcomes you to another fabulous blog hop celebrating the new stamp sets from the July StampTV Release Party! We hope to inspire you with some beautiful card projects as you hop along to each of the designer’s blogs! Today, we are featuring two stamp sets by Therea Momber and Melanie Muenchinger.

The second set we are featuring is Stately Flowers 10 by Melanie Muenchinger. Melanie is at it again! She has added another wonderful set to her Stately Flowers collection. This is set number 10 and what a wonderful set it is!  You will be able to use all of Melanie’s flowers sets to fill the seed packet in this set as an adorable way to send the perfect message!  The possibilities are endless for making beautiful cards for any occasion.

This first card made a great thank you note for a friend.  Stamped with black ink and colored with spectrum noir markers. 


Similar stamps, different colors and the look is so completely different.  White ink on the rust card stock makes this thank you note pop!


The butterflies in the French Flair set make for coloring fun! These stained glass were simply made with stamping the butterfly in black and using spectrum noir to give each butterfly a unique look!



This clean and simple thank you note has a little sparkle with the help of a glitter pen!


This clean and simple sympathy card uses the butterflies stamped in white on blue.  It uses a sympathy sentiment from a previous Gina K. Set.
