Welcome back to our November Inspiration Hop with the newest sets from Gina K Designs! First up we have this beautiful set "Dogwood and Butterfly" from Theresa Momber. I love this frame, already embellished with a garland of dogwoods and a space to add your greeting! I stamped it on white and colored with Copics. I referenced some pics I found online with just a hint of peach on the tips to color them, this Basic Grey Curio was perfect to go with! They have really deep veins and grooves in the petals, so I added stripes of gray for shadows. Last I sponged with some Frayed Burlap Distressing Ink, traced here and there with a stardust pen and adhered it behind this popped up Grass Green window cut from a Classic Oval and a Beaded Oval Nestabilities. Card also uses Cuttlebug "Grace's Frame" embossing folder and adhesive pearls, and Ivory and Chocolate Brown for the base and layering.
Next up, we have this fun set of bands with tags "Label Borders" by Tami Mayberry. When I first saw this set, I saw borders, but when I pulled each one off the backing and onto the binder sheet I saw they could almost wrap around my wrist... and that got me thinking about... WATCHES! (I just couldn't share it at the party, wanted to save it for a "hee hee" moment in our hop!) ;) hee hee
After stamping each on different Pure Luxury Cardstocks (Bubblegum Pink, Moonlit Fog, and Key Lime) and cutting them out, stamped them again on white to make the faces from the label part and drew on some simple numbers and hands with Memento markers to show different times during the day ("GREAT day!" all day! ) to go with the greeting. I added a little bling with some adhesive rhinestones and a silver nail head. I stamped "great" on pink and popped it up to make that corner a little more interesting. :) Base is Black Onyx.
Last we have another duo: "Friends are Flowers". I colored this image with Copics (R05, R22, G12 , YG97, and W3 for shadows) but instead of stamping on white I used a piece of green DP from Basic Gray Curio pack to change it up! I cut it with a Labels 14 Nestabilities and sponged on just a little Frayed Burlap before removing the die.
I placed this over a Beaded Oval Nestabilites cut from Chocolate Brown. Patterned paper is also from the Curio pack, a perfect match for this image! The greeting is stamped on a Fancy Tags 2 and attached with mini brads. Base is Pure Luxury White. I love the contrast of the bright white with all these distressed elements!
