Gina K Designs April Inspiration Hop Day 2

Hi everyone!!! Are you ready for another hop from the Gina K Designs Design Team???  Once again we are bringing you more inspiration showcasing the new April stamp sets.  Shall we get started??? First up....


Branching Out by Melanie Muenchinger....


Melanie has done it again with another set that is not only FABULOUS... but again, so versatile!!  I LOVE this set and I couldn't decide which card to showcase today! :-)

The card I chose begins with Pure Luxury Black Onyx base and I layered on some Ocean Mist.  My image was stamped with Versamark Ink and heat embossed in teal.  I stamped the sentiment box and heat embossed it as well on White card stock.  I added more Black Onyx by using my Lacey Square Nestabilities and mounted it all with Pop Dots.  I added some self-adhesive pearls to the lower corner and used my Copics to color them to match the teal and added a small flower.

You will have to come back later this week to see even more of the cards I created using Melanie's set.

Next up, another AWESOME set!!! Gina K has some of the BEST illustrators and the next will not disappoint as well!!

Follow your Dreams by Theresa Momber....



What can I say??? Theresa does some of the best scenic stamp images ever!!!  She NEVER disappoints!!

My card began with Pure Luxury Little Boy Blue and I layered on some Cranberry Tart.  I added a layer of DP I found in my stash and I used White card stock to stamp my image using Memento ink pads.  I cut out my image using my Labels 7 Nestabilitie.  I added a ribbon across the card again used Pop Dots to give the Nestabilitie a bit of dimension.

As with Melanie's set, I have more to share using Theresa's set as well.  Stay tuned!!  :-)


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!
