Gina K. Blog Hop: A Year Of Flowers 2 & All Occasion Tags 2



The Design Team for Gina K. Designs welcomes you to another fabulous Inspiration Blog Hop! Gina and the Design Team will inspire

you with many beautiful ideas! And as you hop through their blogs, make sure to leave a comment on each of them because we will choose
a few random comments and those stampers will each win a grab bag of Gina K. Designs products! To see the full list of winners check
the Big News forum at Stamp TV a few days after the hops.



Today we are featuring two of the newly released Gina K Design sets:

A Year of Flowers 2 by Melanie
All Occasion Tags 2 by Tami


This first card I pulled out an old set and used the sentiment from the All Occasion Tags 2 set and did some Rock-n-Roll technique!



year of flowers 2, birds & blossom




 You don't have to use the cut file for the all occasion tags 2 set - it also fits in a spellbinders die - or you could just stamp in right on a small focal image and round the corners! I used lots of dots to create some fun pattern paper strips.
all occasion tags, lots of dots


Melanie's flowers and leaves make both nice backgrounds and focal images!

 The variety of mix & match sentiments and tags is a wonderful addition to my collection!

a closer look




There is something so easy about working with Melanie's floral images! They are really so versatile! I simple stamped and sponged some white on them to make them pop!

I hope you enjoyed my samples! I will be sharing more tomorrow!
