Day 2: Gina K March Release Inspiration Hop

Welcome to another day of the Gina K. Designs Release Inspiration Hop!  We are excited to share with you three more stamp sets that were released last Thursday night.  First up is a card I made combining two stamp sets: Make a Splash (illustrated by Asela Hopkins) and Bring the Bling (illustrated by Melanie Muenchinger).    In this design, I had to use the scallop stamp, from Bring the Bling to make waves....

 Isn't that just an adorable whale image?? Love those little fish too!  I knew I wanted this whale going places so created this really easy slider card. I added the clouds and sun from the stamp set Oh Boy! as well.  Love the way you can combine various GKD stamp sets :o)

Next up is Warm with Love (illustrated by Theresa Momber):

 Theresa creates the most realistic images and LOVE her flowers!  I stamped the image with Memento and colored it with Copics.  Looking forward to seeing Theresa's tips for coloring...

For even more samples of these new sets, please visit each of the GKD Design Team blogs listed below and leave a comment. The more blogs you comment on, the more chances you have of winning!  Tomorrow Gina will announce on her blog the randomly chosen winners who will each win one of these fabulous new stamp sets!
 Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!
Blessings,

Crafty Math Chick said...

These are lovely Jennie! I love your whale card (is it is spinner or a slider?) - so cool how you made the waves with Melanie's set and I like the lightly stamped fishies underneath the whale - it makes them look like they are deep under water. The black Fleur de Lis punched strip really makes everything else on the card POP!

Carolina said...

Adorable cards Jennie! Love the fun feel you achieved with your first card and the CAS design and coloring on your second card is just perfection!

Joy said...

Oh, bring on Spring! Your iris card makes me think of my garden. I have a few yellow iris that look like the one on your card! Wonderful blending of colors.
