Vogue Vases and Border Bling Inspiration Hop

Hello and happy Friday! Today the Gina K Design Team are featuring projects using two of the new stamp sets from this month, Vogue Vases and Border Bling. First up is Vogue Vases a set I illustrated. More details below.

 Next is a new set by Melanie Muenchinger, Border Bling. This is a follow up to the fabulous Bring The Bling stamp set that is so fun to use and this set is just as fun and fabulous! This time Melanie gave us bling frames to fit some of your favorite Nestabilities die sets.

For more inspiration, be sure to check out what the rest of the team has to show you...

 To make my background on the first card, I started by sponging Memento Cantaloupe ink in the center of the cardstock.

 Sponged Memento Angel Pink at the top.

 Sponged Memento Rose Bud.

 Sponged Memento New Sprout on the bottom.

 Sponged Memento Bamboo Leaves.

 I used one of the branch arrangements to stamp some foliage along the bottom corner. I inked with Memento Bamboo Leaves and stamped off on scratch paper before stamping on the background.

 I stamped the silhouette vase using Stazon Jet Black ink.

 Stamped another arrangement with Memento Bamboo Leaves. 

 I stamped the arrangement a second time on another piece of Pure Luxury White, using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I used Copic markers to color the flowers, starting with RV29.

 Added RV25.

 Filled in most of the petal with RV21 and used my blender pen to soften the highlights. After coloring all three flowers, I cut them out.

 Adhered the flowers to the background using Pop Dots and used N1 & N3 to create a shadow under the vase.

The sentiment is also from Vogue Vases. I layered with Pure Luxury Black Onxy and used a Bubblegum Pink card base.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope your day is fabulous!

Your tutorials are appreciated, Theresa. Both your cards are lovely, I'm partial to the Vogue Vases. I've never been able to assemble a bouquet in a round vase IRL that ends up looking good. Now I can live vicariously. All the cards in the blog hop that used these stamps were gorgeous. TFS your many talents.
