Gina K. Designs: August Release Blog Hop - Day 1


Welcome to the first day of the Gina k. Designs August Release blog hop!

There is an AWESOME prize up for grabs!!  Just leave a comment on each stop on the hop for a chance to WIN a $50 Gina K. Designs gift certificate!  A total of TWO certificates will be awarded (one for each day of the hop).  The winners will be announced over in the StampTV Big News forum a few days after the hop has ended.

Today we are featuring two brand new stamp sets.  The first set is illustrated by Hannah Schroepfer and is called Whimsical Wildflowers Stamp & Die bundle.  The second one is illustrated by Emily Loggans and is called Thankful and Blessed.
 
My first card features Hannah's NEW Whimsical Wildflowers Stamp & Die Bundle.  This set is filled will lots of beautiful flowers to color and has coordinating dies.  I just love how they are oversized and can be used as a large focal point on your cards.  I used copic markers to color and added some GKD Crystalline Drops to the flower centers.  


My next card features Emily's NEW Thankful and Blessed stamp set.  I just LOVE her hand letting and how we now get to use it on our projects!  I created my own pattern paper using elements from the Autumn Wreath Builder set...always looking for ways to stretch my stamp sets.
 
Enjoy all the fabulous inspiration as you hop and make sure to comment as you go for a chance to WIN!
