Remembering with Melanie & Gina K!!

 The Gina K team is doing a 5 day hop beginning this Sunday night to spotlight older sets from each illustrator.

Tonight Melanie Muenchinger has several designing friends sharing samples they created using some of their favorite sets from Melanie, take a look and see if you remember them.  If you are new to them... enjoy!!!

My card has a few sentimental memories for me.  :-)  First... my FAVORITE Melanie set is "Inspiration Mosaic".  I LOVE how many ways you can use this set!!!  And as you can guess... with new sets coming every month... I don't get NEARLY enough time to play with some of my favs.   Secondly... "Just So Hoppy" and "Hip Hop Accessories" were the first Gina K sets I ever bought!! And... as they say... the rest is history!  I was hooked on Gina K Designs and her fabulous illustrators.

I used my Copic Markers to color my images and used Gina K Pure Luxury Card Stock "Creme de Menthe" and the 120 pound Heavy Base Weight "White" to stamp my images on.  The little signs my froggies were free-handed and were also just like the ones I first drew when I bought this set.

I added some of the fabulous buttons from the Button Jars that Gina has just released.  There are some awesome, awesome buttons in each jar and I LOVE the "earth-tone" one I found that looks like it has tiny flecks of real straw inside!  
On the inside I used a couple different DP's to create my own mosaic layout to coordinate with Melanie's awesome set.
