GKD Release Inspiration Blog Hop Day 3

Welcome to Day 3 of the Gina K. Designs newest Release Inspiration Hop!  We are excited to share with you the last of the stamp sets which were released last Thursday.  Today we are showcasing Bold and Beautiful the new Free w/3 stamp set **Purchase any three stamp sets and you will receive this month's One Free with 3 stamp set!


I stamped the butterfly onto Wild Dandelion cardstock using Memento Dandelion ink and the sentiment (Rose Bud) to create my own patterned paper.

And here is another CAS design I made with it...


For this card, I stamped the image by coloring directly on the stamp with markers and huffing.  Then I embossed the Spellbinders Labels 10 die onto White Luxury cardstock.  I then went over it with Memento Cantaloupe ink with the die still in place to create the frame.  Quite fun to do!
I am entering both of these into the Moxie Fab Stamp It! Cards Challenge.
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 new Gina K. Designs stamp set of their choice!
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!
Blessings,

Wow! Such different looks from the same stamp set. I would not have thought to use the butterfly stamp to make a background. I would tend to just stick to using it as a focal image. Just gorgeous.
