Good morning, welcome back! The design team has a new inspiration hop for you showcasing the new stamp sets Just Because, Kindness Wreath and Woodland Whimsy. We hope you get tons of ideas today and as you hop, be sure to leave comments along the way, we love hearing from you and each one is a chance to win a $50 gift certificate to the Gina K. Designs store!
Gina will announce the winner a few days after the hops.
You should be coming from Karen Hightower's blog.
Your next stop will be Mindy Eggen's blog.
First up we have the Kindness Wreath set from Hannah Drapinski. This was so much fun to color. She has several sentiments that will fit inside the circle and I love how the flowers placement allows you to turn it in different directions for your layout.
For this next card, I wanted to use the individual branches for making a custom arrangement. After stamping them in Grass Green, I added the yucca flowers from Stately Flowers 13, in that same green ink colored with just a touch of yellow. Sentiment is stamped in Jet Black Amalgam.
Next up we have Emily Loggan's Just Because set. What gorgeous scripty greetings! And so different form ones you may already have. The scale and beauty of these really make a statement, pardon the pun. For this card I added the Stately yucca flower again in Soft Stone to match the card base and spattered on some black.
Although I love monochromatic cards, this one feels a little unfinished to me so I am going to add color when I decide who exactly I am sending it to--their favorite, of course! This is a tip or having the stamping and cardmaking done when you need it, but allows for that personalization! OR, if THEY like to color, invite them to do when they get it! :)
On this next card, I used my Cherokee Rose from Stately Flowers 13. Cardstock is White, Black Onyx, and Tomato Soup. I know I am going to love all these new greetings with all my flowers and other sets as well. They are both timeless and on trend.
Unfortunately, I do not have the Woodland Whimsy set, but I love it and know Lisa and the team will show you awesome things with it in our hop! (AND, I think it's going to work very well with my set coming out next release! So I will be playing with it and the two together for sure!)
Ready for more inspiration? Next on the hop is Mindy Eggen!
Thanks for visiting today!
