Welcome to the first day of the Gina K. Designs January new release hops! We're celebrating all of the new products that were just released with three blog hops! Today we are featuring the new Stately Flowers 12 stamp set (illustrated by Melanie Muenchinger) as well as Emmy and Riley Flamingos stamp set (illustrated by Beth Silaika).
There is a $25 Gina K. Designs prize for one lucky commenter! Just leave a comment on all of the blogs (blog hop list is listed below) for a chance to win! The winner will be announced in the Big News Forum over at StampTV a few days after the hop.
My first card features the new Stately Flowers 12 stamp set. I know I've said this before, but I am such a fan of Melanie's flowers! They are so detailed and lovely!
I stamped the flowers onto watercolor paper and then did some quick watercoloring. For the sentiment, I embossed it onto vellum and stitched it on the card. To finish the card, I adhered the watercolored layer onto a Passionate Pink card base and added some sequins.
My next card features the new Emmy and Riley Flamingos set. Beth has such a talent for creating the cutest critters and always has the best sentiments to go along with them!
I stamped and masked the flamingo to create my "flock". I stamped, colored, and popped up one of the flamingos...and even added a bit of glitter because why not? Ha!
