{Gina K Designs Inspiration Blog Hop} Wild Blossoms and You've Got a Friend


Welcome back!

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!

Today features two of my favorite sets from the hop... although they are all amazing, so it is hard to pick favorites!

First a card from the You've got a Friend set...  


Just a little watercoloring and a strip of patterned paper from the Shabby Spring pack.  The sentiment is embossed to stand out a little more.

And another bit of watercoloring using the gorgeous Wild Blossoms set...




This is SUCH an easy card but it looks really difficult.  I simply sponged my layer of watercolor paper generously with shades of ink, then spritzed it with water.  When it was dry - or almost dry - I stamped the vine and flower.  I gave it a quick shot with my heat gun to finish the drying process and added sequins and an enamel bow from my stash.  Easy Peasy!

Don't forget that it is Friday Funday today in the Stamp TV Kit Addicts group - and it is a challenge week !!  Stop by and play along!!
