Day 1:Inspiration Hop "Falling for You" Kit

Good morning and thanks to all of you who turned out for our release party last night! :) Today begins August's Inspiration Hop for all the new stamp sets with the Gina K Designs team! First up, the newest StampTV kit, "Falling for You"! What a great mix of eclectic images and fun sentiments!
I could have started with any of the images really, there are so many I am drawn to, but I just thought this sentiment was so punny with the image and a perfect opportunity to try out my Echo Park "Walk in the Park" DP with these adorable trees! I stamped the trees on two other prints from this pack and pieced the tree tops over the trunks stamped on Grass Green Pure Luxury. I die cut a circle from this green CS and some Ocean Mist, then made a wavy cut through the green for hills, layered it over the aqua and finally popped up the prints on the trees.
Card also use Pure Luxury White, Chocolate Brown, Bubblegum Pink cardstocks.


Please visit the rest of our team for more fun inspiration with this set!
Thanks for visiting today, tomorrow we'll be back with projects using my new "Basket Buddies" and Theresa's "Heartfelt" set!
