Hello! This week the Gina K Designs Design Team are blog hopping with inspiration from all our newly release stamp sets. First up is my card above using Melanie Muenchinger's fabulous new Pretty Patterns stamp set. You are going to love all the creative ways you can use this set. The first thing I though of when I saw it was how quick and easy it would be to make my own Washi inspired (faux) tape using paper scraps! I'll show you how I did it below.
Grand Tags. I love the elegant images in this set and they fit Spellbinders™ Nestabilities® Labels Twenty-Two! I sponged Memento Grape Jelly ink on white card stock, then stamped the labels image and trimmed around the outside lines. For the center, I stamped the sentiment, also from Grand Tags and cut it out with my Spellbinders Classic Circles die template. I sponged lightly with Memento Grape Jelly ink, while still in the die template, then stamped the dragonfly (from Follow Your Dreams), also with Grape Jelly, but stamped off on scratch paper first to make the image lighter. I added a band of Parisan Garden designer paper and some branches cut with Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms. The card base is Pure Luxury Sandy Beach.

5 ½ by 4 ¼ inches. I stamped another of the patterns using Memento Rich Cocoa, but I stamped off the image on scratch paper first to make it lighter.
