Gina K. Designs Inspiration Hop: March 2016 {Handmade Botanicals}

The Cast and Crew for Gina K Designs welcomes you to a special Inspiration blog hop featuring the new incentive stamp called "Handmade Botanicals". These stamps would be a beautiful compliment to a Gina K. Designs stop set, to add the perfect accent or to make a card on its own. Plus, the "Homemade by" stamp is wonderful to add your own personal touch! We hope to inspire you with some beautiful card projects as you hop along to each of the designer’s blogs!

Enjoy the gorgeous inspiration samples from the team and then comment on each blog for your chance to win a $20 Gina K. Designs gift certificate!!!  To see who won, check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hop.

This first card is quite simple. I watercolored a die cut shape and then simply stamped in black ink. The die cut is adhered to the white base with foam squares. This will make a great sympathy card.



This card is actually on a pale grey base.  I cut it to a 4x4 square card and double scored it in two spots on the card to just give it something other than a plain base. The circle was watercolored, then I stamped the fern in green and added the sentiment in black (the sentiment is from last month's incentive set). 


The other 4x4 base was sitting on my desk along with Genevieve Giraffe, when I decided she wanted to go to the jungle. I stamped the ferns in a variety of greens and simply stamped her behind it (I did create a post it note with a v cut in it, then filled in more ferns. The giraffe was colored with SN markers. I love when my stamps work well with other sets! It makes them more versatile!
