GKD Preview Day 2: Pressed Flowers and Oh Baby!


pressed flowers

Today we are showing Melanie’s new Pressed Flowers stamp set, which was designed to be a perfect companion to her very popular set A Year of Flowers! It is also a great  stand alone set as each bold stamp image lends itself to many techniques as you will see on each designer's blogs tonight!   On my card, I used them in conjunction to create a two-step look with the bold black outline.  For more emphasis on the blue flowers, I outlined them with a black sakura glaze pen.  I finally got some of the vivid ink pads and I love them!!  On this card I used aqua which coordinates with the Ocean Mist cardstock and Tea Rose which coordinates with Innocent Pink cardstock.  I used a few buttons from new button collection in the top corner and my favorite gold lined black organdy ribbon!!

The next preview up is Rupa’s Oh Baby!  It is a sweet collection of baby stamps, wait until you see it all!  Fr my gate fold card, I used the pull ducks image on Labels 7 Nestability as well as one of the new cardstock colors, Lemon Drop which is a brilliant yellow that looks nice with Green Apple on my card.  I grabbed some Cosmo Cricket Ducks in a Row paper which is super fun with this set and coordinates nicely with a lot of Gina K’s pure luxury cardstock too! 

Be sure to start with the Illustrator's blog Melanie Muenchinger and then visit these designer's blogs for even more samples with these stamp sets as well!  You’re sure to be wowed!!
