Gina K Designs April Blog Hop Day 1

{see Speedy's card here}


Did you stop by the release party last night? Good times were had!! I have had so much fun with this month's GKD release samples.  This card is GKD Garden Silhouettes - FREE with the purchase of 3!  I combined it with Timeless Textures, a set I will use a lot!  I adore the prints for a background.


This 2nd card is again, Timeless Textures, along with a dragonfly from Follow Your Dream (more on this on Monday!).  I hope you enjoyed the hop today - this design team just rocks it out!  We will be back on Monday with more samples for you.  See you then - thanks for stopping by~
Here are the other DT's:

Happy Crafter said...

Not only are your cards beautiful but the presentation is stunning. Are the dragonflys shadow stamped or are they pop-ups?

CraftyJo said...

The blue colouring on your first card is so vibrant - I'm guessing you embossed the flower? And the 'mesh' behind the dragonflies is super.

Nedlnut said...

Love them both but the blue is beyond gorgeous!

Karen said...

Love the way you used the texture on both of your cards. Your card presentation is lovely too.

Joni said...

Sensational. Both cards are beautiful but the blue does stand out.

luvhymns said...

I love the white embossed flower and then the sponging the 3 toned blues around it. I like the way it's not all in order but looks randomly placed. That's a hard concept for me to do. I want things in line but love how freeing that look is.
