Gina K. Designs - Previews Spring Basket & Basket Blessings

Good morning and welcome to the Gina K Designs Preview Blog Hop!  We have some fun, new stamp sets to show you over the next few days!  I hope you are enjoying what you have seen so far!  Today I am previewing Spring Basket, illustrated by Melanie Muenchinger.  [This gorgeous set is also a compliment to Melanie's other set A Year of Flowers]  Here is my preview:





So fun to color these with copics.  On my bg I used the bigger complimentary flower from A Year of Flowers. --------------

My second preview is Basket Blessing, also illustrated by Melanie.
Isn't this so precious!  I love these little animals, and they scream paper piecing!  I used my new dotted paper, but you can't see them in the photo!  So bummed.  It's really cute IRL.  This is for my new grand niece! Oh boy does that make me sound old or what? lol - I'll say my nephew's new daughter instead.. Oh - much better. :)
That's it for me today.  If you are following the hop list, I am your last stop.  If you are jumping around, here is the list of the other team member's links.  Previews go on through Thursday so come back tomorrow for more fun cards!  Thanks for stopping by!  Remember, the Release Party is Thursday 7-10pm CST over at Stamp TV.

Viki,
I can always count on you to come up with a clever design and one that I may even be able to CASE. I love how you used the split panel, and used the bigger flowers from Year of Flowers for the background. This one will be going on my fav's as soon as it's posted over a STV.

dsood said...

So creative, I love the layout of both cards. The cards are so beautiful. The colors are so grand and perfect.

Crafty Math Chick said...

Okay, I TOTALLY want that baby card Vicki and I am not having a baby - sky blue & brown is my favorite color combination and I ADORE elephants (you probably would not be surprised to learn my alma mater is Tufts University, whose colors are sky blue & chocolate brown and whose mascot is Jumbo the elephant?). Your floral card is pretty too, I like how you segmented the flowers like that and used a portion of one in the corner with the sentiment.
