A Year of Flowers Book Hop

 Thank you for hopping along today with the Gina K. Design Team!! If you arrived here from Giovana's blog, then you're right where you should be. You can always go to StampTV to start from the beginning.  The inspiration for today's hop came from Melanie Muenchinger's new book called, A Year of Flowers.

While you can make every design in the book with Melanie’s all occasion “A Year of Flowers” set, today’s samples showcase her coordinating florals, which can also be used with the book's tutorials and designs, and provide endless options and more value for your money. We are excited to share cards and projects we created using some of our favorite flower sets designed by Melanie! We love her new book and know you will too - don't miss out on getting your very own copy which you can purchase HERE!

My sample uses Pressed Flowers:

I did a bit of kissing with the solid floral image using one of the backgrounds from Timeless Textures.  I stamped the flowers with Memento Summer Sky and kissed prior to stamping with Memento Rich Cocoa ink.  I added some additional color by using the same "kissing" stamp by stamping randomly using Memento Desert SandMelanie's floral stamp sets are amazing and love the detail she gives to these beautiful images.
  • Hope you're finding some great inspiration and wonderful designs to get your creativity jump-started!  You can find the newest stamp sets and lots of wonderful accessories in Gina's Store.  And then join us on Stamp TV for the challenges and surprises and crafty videos galore!!!
  • Go to Lee's blog, to continue the hop! 
  • Leave comments along our hop today to enter to win one of Melanie's coordinating floral sets of your choice. The more comments you leave the more chances to win! Melanie will draw a name randomly from one blog and post the winner tomorrow morning.  She is also giving away her Crazy Daisy digital patterned paper FREE if you link Gina's video or her post, please see Melanie's blog for details! Good Luck!
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day! 
Blessings,
