Gina K Inspiration Day 2

Hello! It's the second day of inspiration from Gina K Designs for our January release. Today we have three new stamp sets to feature. First up is a set I illustrated called Birds and Blossoms. I also used some of the new Love Letters designer paper on this card. I'll share more details below.

Next we have Simple Hearts, by Tami Mayberry. This is such a great set and can be used well past Valentine's Day, for birthdays, anniversaries and more! I used more of the Gina K Color Companions ribbons and buttons on this card.

And Becky Oehlers has created a super cut new set called Spoon Me! These images are adorable. I love the bowling pin and sentiment. So fun! Those buttons are also from Gina K's Color Companions.

The Design Team for Gina K. Designs welcomes you to another fabulous Inspiration Blog Hop! Gina and the Design Team will inspire you with many beautiful ideas! And as you hop through their blogs, make sure to leave a comment on each of them because we will choose a few random comments and those stampers will each win a grab bag of Gina K. Designs products! To see the full list of winners checkthe Big News forum at Stamp TV a few days after the hops.
Now let's see what everyone else has to share with us...

I started by sponging Memento Desert Sand ink on Pure Luxury White card stock.

Sponged Memento Toffee Crunch.

Sponged Memento Rich Cocoa.

Stamped the branches from Birds and Blossoms with Rich Cocoa.

 Next I stamped the butterfly with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and began coloring with E97 near the body. Then I added E31 on the outer part of the wings.

 Added more color near the body with YR14.

 Then coloring in the body with W5. After coloring, I cut out the image.
I stamped the butterfly on my background so I wouldn't have to cut around the antennae, then adhered the cut out butterfly over the newly stamped one. I layered with Love Letters pattern paper and Pure Luxury Dark Chocolate card stock. The card base is also Dark Chocolate and 4 ¼ by 4 ¼ inches. 

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a great day!
