Gina K Designs DT Nature's Greetings Blog Hop

Hi and welcome to the DT blog hop for Nature's Greetings. If you came from  Tina's blog you are in the right spot.  If you want to start at the beginning click here to see who is participating.

Here is my Nature's Greetings card:


I used my favorite technique, direct to paper with Tim Holtz distressed ink; mustard seeds, evergreen bough, and broken china. I just adore the look of this technique - and the best, is it just so easy! I love easy~ :) [My printed background is from Vintage Backgrounds.]


For an additional treat for you,  I made these CAS Christmas cards [with a few other sets GKD has] -- just in case you need some fast, last minute Christmas cards~
I used the poinsettia from Melanie's A Year of Flowers, and the mc from the Wishing You Joy Kit. The white dots are added with a Sakura Pen Touch White Fine Point [from Mike's].

I used gold embossing powder with a couple of the Wishing You Joy Kit images.


This card I used the gnome image [cut off his ears to look more like Santa] from Tami's set, Gnome One Like You.


3 easy CAS cards, that are easily mailed!  No rips, tears and, postage is 44 cents! :)  Have to like that.

This is the last stop of the hop from the Gina K Designs Design Team.  I hope you enjoyed all the eye candy!  Thanks for stopping by~

Aloha, Vicki,
I love how Tim's distressed inks work like that for you - it's just beautiful card! I just end up with a puddly mess (LOL). But even your flower and butterfly look fabulous like this. You make it look so easy! Thanks for the ideas!
