Gina K Designs February Hop - Day 1

Gosh where did January go? Poof gone!  However,since it is time for another GKD new release hop - I guess that is okay! :)
Today we are featuring Melanie Muenchinger's Stately Flowers 3 -- she just keeps making these beautiful sets every month!  So fun to color the beautiful flowers~

Looking for an easier way to color? On this card I stamped and cut out my flowers. Taking a big dauber, I sponged the color on to the flowers. This is a wonderful way for coloring because the more you sponge, the more depth you get in your color. Once I got the depth I wanted, I just filled in the middle with a copic. [Just a little coloring hint for you all]
This last card is just a fun way to show off gorgeous designer paper -- isn't it exciting that Gina is making her OWN! The three sets she has come out with are amazing!! (BTW, all my cards are using GKD dp)  I love the mixture of patterns and colors!

We are also featuring Rupa Shevde's new set Mehndi Wishes.  What a fun set!

and this is the card I showed at the Release Party last night
While pinning the other night (omg- I'm addicted to Pinterest)  I saw a paperclip embellie -- I just love this fun look.

Okay, that is it for me today and this is the end of the hop too. [Have I mentioned how I need to change my name - it's just no fun being last - lol.]  If you are just popping in, below is the list of designers participating in the hop today.  Check it out - amazing inspiration using these 2 stamp sets!
Thanks for stopping by~

I'm sneaking this fun little card I made yesterday -- playing around with the True Love STV Kit.  I love this sentiment and I am giving this card to my son for V Day.

Are you sure there isn't gloss on the bird? And now I have to do research on pinterest.....always something new to explore! Still looking at the bird - it has to have glossy accents on it!

Oh Vicki, I disagree with you...I think it's great fun to get to your blog last. I'm ecstatic that you created so many samples for us. Your colors are amazing, and that new paper from Gina is first on my list. When I saw your Mehndi bird sample last night, that clinched it for me. I think your son is going to love his Valentine's Day card.

Jennie said...

Beautiful cards Vicki! Love how you did those flowers.

Sue D said...

All of your cards are gorgeous, Vicki, but I have to say that red Mehndi bird is my fav! Cute little valentine card you sneaked in at the end - love that it isn't in traditional colors.

KonaRose said...

Hi, Vicki-you made a ton of cards! They are all so bright and cheery, and the mehndi is a bit more quiet but bold. We could change your name to "Chicki" and bump you closer to the top LOL!
