Gina K. Designs February 2016 Inspiration Blog Hop: Day 1 (Year of Flowers 3 & Birds & Blossoms 2)


Thanks for LEAPING over to the Gina K. Blog Hop!

The Cast and Crew for Gina K Designs welcomes you to another fabulous blog hop celebrating the new stamps from the February 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 the new stamp set “Year of Flowers 3” by Melanie Muenchinger and the “Birds & Blossoms 2” set Theresa Momber. Enjoy the gorgeous inspiration samples from the team and then comment on each blog for your chance to win an awesome grab bag of GKD goodies!!!  To see who won, check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hop.

Theresa's Birds & Blossoms 2 set is really fun to play with. I really enjoy the silhouette birds!


I stamped the image and sentiment in black and then stamped the flowers on white, trimmed and adhered to the branch. 
 
The silhouette images work so well with a watercolor background. I love the script sentiments which are included with this set!

Next up, Mel's new set! Melanie's Year of Flowers 3 has a great selection of flowers and stems, with a few sentiments to enhance your card!


The coneflower is so pretty, I simply stamped it at two angles and bent the stem! 


The rose is stamped in a variety of angles here as well, with some leaves and "baby's breath" thrown in for good measure! I love orange roses, so those were my inspiration!
