I'm also super excited to announce that starting this month I'm a new member of the Design Team for Gina K Designs - affectionately known as the Cast & Crew! Each month I'll be bringing you inspiration using the latest release from Gina K including her beautiful stamp sets and stamps kits!

Gina K Designs Inspiration Blog Hop Day 1

Are you ready for some inspiration? First up, I bring you a card I created using the Stately Flowers 11 by Melanie Muenchinger. One of my favorite stamps in this set is the little Happy Mail post mark image. I stamped the stamp outline image and word stamps onto a piece of watercolor paper and then added some color using a foam blending tool and ink.

Next, I stamped the floral image onto white cardstock and colored it with Prismacolor colored pencils. I then got a little crazy and fussy cut the floral image. To give the image a little dimension, I adhered it to the card front using double sided foam adhesive.

My second card features the Daisy Delight stamp set by Theresa Momber. I just love this large daisy image and couldn't resist making it the center of attention. I stamped and fussy it cut it to create two layers. I then added some shadow highlights and colored the center and leaves with Prismacolor colored pencils.

Using double sided foam adhesive, I adhered the daisy layers and leaves to the card front. I stamped the sentiment onto black cardstock and embossed it with white embossing powder.
