Gina K Design's March Release Inspiration Blog Hop -Day 2

Welcome back to Gina K Design's March Release Inspiration Blog Hop everyone!  

Today we are showcasing three new Gina K stamp sets!  First off is "Bring the Bling" by Melanie Muenchinger.  This stamp set is just perfect for adding "bling" to your cards and projects without the bulk!  Here is what I came up with for some inspiration for you:
On this card, I used four of the many fabulous images in this set.  I love that you can emboss these images in a glossy or sparkle embossing powder and really make them shine!  I chose to keep them more muted in my card to stick with the muted color scheme.

Next up is, Warm With Love by Theresa Momber!  Theresa has a knack for illustrating beautiful nature images and she did it again with this set! 
Look at those Iris's!  Just perfect for any spring occasion!  I started off using my wonderful Gina K Pure Luxury card stock in Vibrant Violet then layered in Lovely Lavender and White.  I colored my Iris's with Copic markers and used my new Spellbinders Dies, Elegant Posts.


You will absolutely adore today's last stamp set, Make a Splash by Asela Hopkins!  The images in this set are just adorable!!
Look how fun!  With all those fun swimming jelly fish I couldn't help but make a slider card to have the cute little octopus bobbing by!  He slides from one end of the wavy cut out section to the other!  Don't you just love this one?  Just too cute!  I colored the Jellyfish and octopus with Copic Markers.  :)

Alright, now head on over to the other design team members' blogs for more wonderful inspiration!


Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful day!
Hugs,
Janice
