New Incentive Set: Handmade Botanicals

Good morning! The Cast and Crew for Gina K Designs welcomes you to another fabulous blog hop celebrating a new incentive stamp set by Gina K called “Handmade Botanicals”. We hope to inspire you with some beautiful card projects as you hop along to each of the designer’s blogs!


Please enjoy the gorgeous inspiration samples from the team and then comment on each blog for your chance to win an awesome $20 gift card to Gina K. Designs!!!  To see who won, check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hop.




The set makes perfect scenes for your sponged skies (sentiment from Scripty Sayings).  Images are stamped and stamped off in GKD Fresh Asparagus and sky is sponged in GKD Ocean Mist and Sweet Corn.

...but it is also wonderful addition to pair with your floral stamps (flowers from A Year of Flowers 3)  I used GKD Grass Green to stamp the bud silhouettes and sponge the masked corner, and Memento Tuxedo Black and Spectrum Noir markers to color my daisies.  I also tapped the marker to add some speckles and texture. Base is GKD Kraft.
