Hello and welcome to the Gina K Designs blog hop for July. Today we are featuring two new stamp sets : French Flair, illustrated by myself, and Stately Flowers 10, illustrated by Melanie Muenchinger.
First up is French Flair. This set is filled with images inspired French iconography. There are many versatile ways to use the elements in this stamp set. In the card above, you can see how the eiffel tower image can be used to create a scene card. (video coming soon).
Here you can see how some of the images can be used to color and create a vignette.
And in this card I layered a variety of the images to create and eclectic assemblage on a single layer card.
Here is a video tutorial to show you how I created the butterfly card.
Next up is Melanie's latest, Stately Flowers 10. This is the 10th in this popular series and contains such beautiful images.
I always love Melanie's flowers and I adore the fun new "seed packet" image she created to go with this set.
Here is another card I created with Stately Flowers 10. For a photo tutorial to see how I made it, be sure to scroll down to the bottom of this post.

Stamp the birthday sentiment on a narrow band of white cardstock Adhere the image to the sponged background and layer with pieces of Pure Luxury Black Onyx and Lovely Lavender cardstock. Adhere the layers to a 4 ¼ by 5 ½ inch Sandy Beach card base, adding a large strip of dark grey cardstock. I used some burlap paper that I had on hand to add some texture. Adhere the sentiment and tuck some rolled string behind one corner of the layers.
Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you have a great day!
