January New Release Blog Hop- Day 3

Hello, everyone! Welcome to our third day of hops with the design team for our January release stamp sets, thanks for coming back! Today we are featuring Gina's newest StampTV Kit-Hearts & Flowers! (It's like my favorite kit ever I think!) Be sure to comment on each of the blogs as you hop because we will be going away three $25 gift certificates to Gina K. Designs, one each day!  Comment for more chances to win! Check StampTV Big News Forum a few days after the hops conclude where the winners will be announced. Here we go!


Isn't this flowering guitar pretty?  I wanted a vintage looking background to go with this romantic image and sentiment, so I stamped the guitar in Kraft and sponged the edges to age it.  Next I embossed the guitar in gold on the GKD Black Onyx cardstock die cut. I had some heart eyelets that I knew would be perfect to add to the guitar, popped it up with foam squares, and then stamped a bunch of bold hearts in GKD Red Velvet swirling out and around the greeting.  These stamps are music to my eyes!


Next, what a gorgeous floral image and die! I stamped it in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it with Spectrum Noir markers. After stamping the greeting, I trimmed out the birthday in Dusty Rose cardstock, and popped up this and the flower on a White GKD Pure Luxury base.

I loved all these heart images so much, so I stamped a collage background on Ivory in GKD Red Velvet, Black Onyx, Turquoise Sea, and Innocent Pink.  I left a space to stamp one of the sentiments, and added the birds perched on two of the hearts. Cardstock is GKD Pure Luxury Turquoise Sea, Black Onyx, and Ivory.
Finally, I wanted to play with these lovely floral layering stamps.  I used Innocent Pink, Red Velvet and Black Onyx for the flower elements, and Jellybean and Grass Green for the leaves. Chevron patterned paper is from the GKD Bold & Blooming pack, and I used the Gina K. Black Fancy Ribbon to make a bow. Card base is GKD Pure Luxury Dusty Rose.

Finally, one more sample from me with the "You Get Me" Incentive Set. Love thee two fonts and the messages so I will be using these a LOT, as you've seen throughout our hops this week!  Here is one I made with my Stately Flowers 12 set. 



I stamped the violets in GKD Applemint and the colored them in pinks, for a subtle no line colored look. See the tiny hearts in the flower centers?  So fun for a valentine, and to go with this "you have my heart" sentiment!  

I added some of Gina's  Black Fancy Ribbon to balance out the greeting, and make it *extra fancy*.  Cardsotck is GKD Pure luxury White, Black Onyx and Innocent Pink. Sentiment is stamped in GKD Black Onyx. I just adore this little border of whimsical hearts that's included!  This set is free for a limited time, with a $75 order!

  28. Oh my goodness, Melanie! I loved every card, each one more than the one before! Though the heart card was my favorite of the blog hop until I saw that last card. Just stunning!!!!

  29. Ohhhh, I just LOVE your cards, especially the first two! Love the vintage feel of the first one, will have to try and keep that in mind myself! The red rose popped up on the white looks great too...was just starting to color one myself today, didn't get real far but hopefully it looks at least half as good as yours does when it's done. Course....I'm using zigs, so will be different, and I'm no expert with them...but we shall see. Thanks for the inspiration!
