Branching Out and Follow Your Dreams --New GKD Stamp Sets!

Hey, there! Today I get to show you two more fabulous sets from this month's Gina K Designs newest stamp set release! First off is, Branching Out by Melanie Muenchinger.
Isn't it beautiful?  :)

Here is a card I made using the circle image and one of the little flower images:
I used the super fab DCWV "Lemon Flower" matstack for my DP--I am just loving DCWV lately.  Really, ever since I went to CHA and saw their gorgeous display (and gorgeous paper) I've been a fan!  The sentiment "Many Thanks" is from Garden Silhouettes.

Up next is, "Follow Your Dreams" by Theresa Momber.  Theresa always comes up with the most beautiful "nature-inspired" sets! Here it is:

And here is the card I made using the dragonfly images and the "follow your dreams" sentiment.
I used my new EK Success border punch to create the pretty leaf border.  After stamping and cutting out th dragonflies I covered the wings with some Stickles to add that fun "glitteriness" to it!  Do you like my new word? ;P  Recognize that texture stamp?  I used the long strip from "Timeless Textures" to create my variegated water scene--fun, huh?

Well, thanks so much for stopping by!  For more inspiration, check out the other DT member's blogs:

    Thanks for showing me yet another possibility for the Branching Out stamp set. I didn't understand what the smaller stamps were for until I saw the flowers you added to your image. Now I get it. (Duh!) I'm a little slow on the uptake sometimes. :-/

    Janice, I love these sets. I want that boat. LOL I've been slowly collecting some masculine stamps. Your dragon flies are wonderful. I have that vine border stamp and Oh how I wish it didn't leave those trailing bits to be glued down. LOL But I guess it has to, to show the leaves.
    Kay S said…
    Such beautiful cards! Love the dp on the first one and the second one is really unique! Love how you used the texture strip to create the water.

    Love your spring-y first card, but you're second card convinced me that I really should get the leaf border punch. I only pictured it in my mind on green background because of the leaves and didn't really care for it, but the blue background totally changed my outlook. Gorgeous card!
