Good morning, and thank you for hopping along today with the Gina K. Design Team!! If you arrived here from Gina's blog, then you're right where you should be. She's got a video on the book you don't want to miss, the perfect start to day's hop! The inspiration for our hop came from my new book called, A Year of Flowers.
While you can make every card in the book with the all occasion “A Year of Flowers” set, the team’s samples today showcase their favorite images from my coordinating floral sets from Gina K Designs, which can also be used with the book's tutorials and designs, and provide endless options and more value for your money! Some of the sets you will see in the hop today are:

My sample uses "Buds and Vases", this set is one of my favorites because I love having so many options for putting my flowers in (pot, vase and jar) Today I used the vase and took my inspiration and technique (masking) from the first card sample in the book ( which is also featured on the cover). I used the same color Copics and cardstock and made just a small adjustment to the layout since the combined images made the white mat a little larger. Adding the Passionate Pink layer balanced the colors on this sample better (since most of the bright colors are at the top of the mat unlike the sample with the tulips and lilies where it's all over.) Sentiment is also from "Buds and Vases". For someone like me who doesn't like to spend a lot of time thinking about what sketch to use for a card (and also happened to be short on stamping time this week!) I was really thankful to be able to just open the book and work from there, not a lot of thinking involved!
Here is the sample I showed yesterday that uses the blue quarter sheet from the "Crazy Daisy" digital paper pack. This sample is not in the book, but the digital patterned paper you see here are used in one project...
