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!!! To see who won, check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hop.
My first card features Melanie's new A Year of Flowers 3 stamp set. I love Melanie's flower sets SO much! They are always so full of detail and include great sentiments as well!
I wanted to try a bit of a different style for me. I'm not sure what to call it, but it definitely has more of a modern flair to it. I started by embossing the rose image. Then, using watercolor paints, I did some very messy watercoloring. I made sure to not blend my colors and to leave some white space. I chose bold, bright colors that would really pop against the black.
My next card features more flowers from the A Year of Flowers 3 stamp set, but I used a sentiment from the new Scripty Sayings set. If you haven't checked out the "Free Stuff" link, you should! For every $75 spent, you will get this stamp set absolutely free! And the best part is that the set changes often, so make sure to check back!
My next card features Theresa's new Birds & Blossoms 2 stamp set! We have yet to see any hint of Spring here in Montana (and probably won't for a couple of months), but that didn't stop me from trying to capture it on my card! :-) I absolutely LOVE Cherry Blossoms and couldn't wait to use this image! I colored, cut out, and popped up the larger flowers.
My final card features more images from Theresa's Birds & Blossoms 2 stamp set. I started with a tall and skinny card base. I stamped the bird image using lots of my Gina K Color Companion ink pads! Rainbow colors always make me happy! :-)
