{Gina K Designs Inspiration Blog Hop} Vine & Butterfly and Triple Play Holiday

Hi everyone!

The Cast and Crew for Gina K Designs welcomes you to another fabulous Inspiration Blog Hop! It's time for our September Release and, boy, do we have some treats for you this month!  We hope to inspire you with some eye candy as you hop along with us!  Enjoy the gorgeous inspiration samples from the team and then comment on each blog for your chance to win an awesome grab bag of GKD goodies. Don't forget to check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hop to see if you are the winner!

I have two cards to share with you today - one from each of the featured sets.  First, a card from Theresa's Vine and Butterfly...



I used a Fresh Asparagus card base for this card and layered it with a piece of patterned paper from the Autumn Wishes pack.  I stamped a strip of Prickly Pear cardstock with the vine image and ran it through a woodgrain embossing folder, then layered it behind my main image panel.  The two butterflies are stamped with Prickly Pear ink and then I rolled the edges in Fresh Asparagus ink to give them a two toned look.  I used Versamark and white embossing powder for the sentiment.





I used some two tone stamping on this card featuring Melanie's new Triple Play Holiday set as well.  After inking the flower with Versamark ink and then Dark Chocolate ink, I used clear embossing and some heat to make it stand out.  I then inked the sentiment in Faded Brick and rolled the edges in Dark Chocolate ink before I stamped it.  Do you recognize the layout?  I used it for the set of three Friday Funday cards HERE.  Isn't it amazing?  From whimsical to elegant!!

These are just beautiful! You've matched the dp perfectly on both cards!

Linda S said...

Thank you for sharing your ideas. On your first card, I am fascinated with how the two "patterned papers" work so well together. On your second card, I had trouble figuring out which paper pad your background is from, is it from the "Grateful Heart" paper pad?
