GKD April Release Inspiration Hop

Welcome to the Gina K. Designs April Release Inspiration Hop!  We are excited to share with you two of the stamp sets released last night.
First up is Garden Silhouettes, the One free with 3 stamp set:

I used Red Hot, Black Oynx and White cardstock.  I embossed the white panel with the Floral Fantasy Cuttlebug folder and smeared it with a yellow gelato.  The image was stamped using markers and then I sponged over the die-cut with Memento Cantaloupe ink.  I framed it with Fancy Tags.  One of my favorite ribbons from GKD is this Black Gingham, just a fun width and it makes the prettiest bows :)

Next is Timeless Textures, which I also paired with Garden Silhouettes. There are no limits to this fun set...I have so many ideas floating around in my head and need more time in my day to create....

This was a fun set to put together using two shades of ink.  They would make a nice card set and since they are very CAS, mailing these wouldn't require any extra postage which is a big plus nowadays!

Here is one close up:
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,

Glitter Fantasies said...

Love your techniques!! How did you get the center area of the ones with flowers to be so much lighter toward the center??? You can still see the stamp design..but it fades as it draws to the center it seems...
