GKD December Release Inspiration Blog Hop Day 1

 Welcome to Day 1 of the Gina K. Designs newest Release Inspiration Hop!  We are excited to share with you
 two new stamp sets that were released last night.  First up is Stately Flowers 2, illustrated by Melanie:

I used some Tim Holtz distress ink (Peeled Paint and Victorian Velvet) to liberally sponged the stamped floral image.  Then I sprinkled the cardstock with a bit of water and set it with a heat gun to make the fun water spots.  

 And now for a card using Mountain Wilderness, illustrated by Theresa:
I used the Cuttlebug folder Polka Dots and some Memento Ink as well as Tim Holtz Tea Dye distress ink.

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!  Gina will announce on her blog the randomly chosen winners who will each win a fun Grab Bag of stamps from Gina K. Designs.
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day! 
Blessings,
