Gina K Goes Moxie Fab!

Hello! Gina K. Designs is sponsoring the Moxie Fab World Blog today! Check out the 8 fantastic Gina K Designs stamps sets Cath Edvalson is giving away in celebration of Stamp It! Cards week long celebration!

One of the eight sets selected is Gina K's "Many Wishes", filled with beautiful words to customize your own "wish". I used these to create one on the sample below...
Instead of using the set's sweet dandelion today, I cut out my "Pressed Flowers" daisy image stamped in Vivid Brick ink on white CS, trimmed two of the petals off and then popped up everything over the stamped stem... loves me, loves me not! I did a two-toned effect on both the stems and leaf and on the word "laughter" with two green markers to add some more dimension. Last, the pop of Gina K yellow and black buttons for the flower center contrast beautifully with the crisp White Pure Luxury base. This clean and simple card with very minimal supplies can be recreated in less than 10 minutes!

Thank you very much for visiting me today, my wish is that you'll return often! :) Now go check out our other designers links for more samples with all the prize sets at Gina's blog, and then stop over to The Moxie Fab World Blog (you do not need to make card for the Tuesday Trigger to win, just leave a comment in the comment section) for a chance to win those fabulous stamps!
