Gina K May Release Inspiration Hop Day 2

Welcome to Day 1 of the Gina K. Designs May Release Inspiration Hop!  We are excited to share with you two more stamp sets which were released last Thursday.  First is Dreams, illustrated by Tami Mayberry:

  I used Kraft and Pumpkin Spice cardstock and several Distress inks and Memento markers for this design.  I wanted to keep it rustic so added some Jute twine (love this stuff and so inexpensive!!)

Next up is Birthday Bash, illustrated by Rupa Shevde:

 I paired it with some Echo Park A Walk in the Park patterned paper and since I am not the best "colorer" I paper pieced this cute bear.  The balloons were colored with watercolor pencils.
 
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 Gina K. Designs stamp set of their choice!
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!
Blessings,
