Gina K June Release Blog Hop–Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of the Gina K June Release Hop.  These hops are so much fun because not only do you get to see all the DT cards for each set, but Gina gives away so many stamp sets during the hop dates and I hope you remember all you have to do is leave a comment on the DT blogs to be entered!!! How awesome is that!!!  Are you ready for another day of inspiration??? Let’s get hopping!

First up… “Whimsical Wishes” by Theresa Momber…
TheresaJune114

Today I decided to “mix it up” a bit and used not only Theresa’s new set, but I used her vase from last month’s set, “Vogue Vases”!! 

I started my card with Pure Luxury Heavy Base Weight white and added a layer of Pure Luxury Accent Key Lime.  A layer of Vibrant Violet and then used white again to stamp my image on.  I stamped the dragonfly circle in Vivid Purple ink and then stamped the vase in Memento black.  You need to do some trimming to get rid of the excess but it fits nicely in the vase!  I added it to my white card stock and then stamped the leaves on top.  I stamped my sentiment and then took my Scallop Circle Nestabilitie and sponged all around it with Memento Lulu Lavender.  I added my circle Nestie that fit just inside the scallops and sponged more of the Lilac around it for a more subtle scallop.  I stamped the dragonfly and cut it out then colored the wings in a bit with my Copic markers.  I added diamond Stickles to the leaves and black Stickles to the body. 

Next up… “Garden Fresh” by Gina K Designs…

I have REALLY been loving me some carrots lately… I mean REALLY… just eating the heck out of them!!! LOL  So when I saw this adorable set from Gina K, I HAD to do a card with the carrots!!!  Ha!

My card began with Pure Luxury Wild Dandelion.  I used the dotted DP’s from Echo Park’s, A Walk In the Park, paper pack.  I stamped my carrots using White card stock and colored them with my Copic markers before cutting them out.  I added a jute string bow to appear as though they were tied together.  My sentiment was stamped on White card stock and cut out using the new Fancy Tags 2 Nestabilities.  I sponged on some Tim Holtz Distress ink, Spiced Marmalade, before removing the die.  A little copper nail head in each corner completes my card.

Now check out the rest of the team to see what fabulousness they have in store for you.


Thanks for stopping by and have a great time hopping!  *smile*

Kathy said...

Hello,
I know its been some time since you made this post but if you happen to recall what color of orange copic marker(s)you used to color your carrots, I would love to know. Its so hard to tell from the online color chart and I have a bunch of Easter bunny cards with carrots to color for Easter and am clueless as to what orange would be best. Any help would be much appreciated!
