Gina K June Release Blog Hop–Day 1

Hope you all had a wonderful Fourth of July weekend!!  I did lots of relaxing and playing with paint in my studio!  Smile  Today the Gina K Designs Design Team is hopping along to share some of our creations made with the new June Release Stamps!!  Are you ready to get inspired???

First up, “The Vine” by Melanie Muenchinger….



MelanieJune112
My card begins with Pure Luxury Red Hot card stock and added a layer of white which I ran through my Vagabond using the Swiss Dot Cuttlebug embossing folder.  I used just the “trumpet” flowers from the set and stamped them a “cross” shape.  Then I stamped four more separately and cut them out and mounted them between each of the four I had stamped previously using Pop Dots.  This gave them a bit more dimension.  I added a button to the top and a small pearl in the middle for accent.  I cut the flowers out using my Circle Nestabilities and mounted it on top of two layers of the Lotus Pendant Nestabilitie in Red Hot and in Just Peachy.  I ran a ribbon along the side and used our NEXT stamp set *wink*, along it with my sentiment.

Next up… “All Occasion Greetings” by Tami Mayberry…

My inspiration for this card was the “waterfall” designed card. You know the kind… you pull a tab and they “flip” to show more than one sentiment or image??? My take on it was to use three of the labels from Tami’s set and attach them with an eyelet.  When you twist them apart… you see each sentiment (an interactive card, if you will).  Like this….

I started with a Pure Luxury heavy base weight White card stock.  I stamped the tags using Vivid and Memento Ink.  I added a rhinestone on the opposite end and used my Copic markers to color them to the coordinating color needed.  I used twine to tie them all together and keep them in line.  I used the small flourish in the set to stamp in the corners.

Now hop on over to the rest of the DT and see what they have in store for you.
