Gina K Designs April Inspiration Hop Day 1

Wasn't last night's Gina K Designs' Release Party exciting??!!!  So much fun going on and so many things to look at, I didn't know which way to go first! LOL

Today, the Design Team is hopping along to share some of our creations to keep you inspired!!

First up, Garden Silhouettes, the new One Free with Three sets  by Gina K.



My card base is Pure Luxury Wild Dandelion.  I layered it up with some Wild Lilac and I stamped my images on white.  I stamped the first flower with Vivid Purple ink then stamped off the second (middle) image and my last image was stamped using Memento Lulu Lavender.  I added a punched border to the bottom and stamped my sentiment on it.  I added self-adhesive pearls which I colored in three tones with my Copic markers.

Next up, another set by Gina K., Timeless Textures....



I wanted to use this set to create a manly design which always seem  to be a bit tough for me, but I really like the way this came out.  I began with a base layer of Pure Luxury Ivory card stock.  I added a layer of Chocolate Brown then stamped my images on a layer of Soft Sand.  I used several different colors of ink for each texture stamp using Vivid and Memento inks.  I added my sentiment to the bottom and right below added some adhesive copper nail heads.  Last I added some twine to the top.

Check out what the rest of the team has created to inspire you this morning, and then, make sure you leave a comment on each of the blogs because we're giving away some stamps!

Two lucky readers will each win two stamp sets of their choice along with a surprise embellishment pack including ribbons, buttons and more!


Thanks for stopping by and have fun hopping!! *smile*

I don't think I would have ever thought of using the textures on their own, but it works! Fabulous.

Cheri said...

Love that manly one....so simple yet so elegant. Great job on both cards my friend. Throwing kisses! ;0)

Bloomin Rose said...

I really like the "with love" card, so simple but yet it looks like a "comforting" card.

Love your variety. Bright and cheerful, then subdued and manly!

Happy Crafter said...

I really like the faded effect you got with the Iris stamp, also great color combo. Both beautiful cards.

CraftyJo said...

They are both lovely and I do think you've succeeded in making a 'manly' card - so tricky!

Joni said...

beautiful choice of colors. My Granny called those flowers Flags instead of Iris but I don't know why. Anyone else familiar with that term?

Karen said...

Love the way you varied the color on the flowers and the texture card is really pretty too!

Nedlnut said...

Love what you made!

Valerie said...

The texture card showcases all those stamps perfectly! The notched corners replicate the geometric shapes, perfect punch!

Judy I said...

Wonderful cards. The iris card is awesome.

Beastybunny said...

Both these cards are beautiful but I am really loving the second. Very clever use of just the texture stamps to create a very effective and lovely card.

Catherine Kraft said...

I really like the manly card you made with just the textures and sometimes you need a card without a lot of "stuff" on it for men. I loved the idea of how you made the floral card in fading colors. Great job!

sghay said...

Very nice.

Marie said...

Love the use of multiple shades of the one color! Gives the illusion of "stamping off" or repetitive stamping without reinking.
Your Texture card would be a great background for a masculine birthday card!
Thanks for sharing!
