Gina K Inspiration Hop Day 1: The Vine & All Occasion Tags


purple vines

Welcome to our 1st of 3 days of inspiration hops for our June release at Gina K Designs!   We are so grateful for all the GKD fans month after month who get so excited for all the new offerings and we get to chat with at the release parties!  You are the reason we do what we do! 

First up is The Vine by Melanie Muenchinger, a beautiful set with various shaped vines and flowers to coordinate with her Branching Out set (which I am showing on my card – the square frame is from there). I repeated one of the vines 3 times for the bottom section of the card and filled it in with purple blooms. thinking of you threads

Next up is Tami Mayberry’s set All Occasion Tags, a set filled with 3 occasion frames that coordinate with Spellbinders Grommet Tags dies and a ton greetings that cover every occasion you may need for your card giving throughout the year! 

This makes the set so versatile because you can pair it with other stamps (I added some pink blooms from The Vine to the bubblegum pink layer that you have to look real closely to see) and different pattern papers for a very quick & nice card!

As you hop through the designer’s blogs, make sure you leave comments on each one for a chance to win a free stamp set of your choice valued up to $24.95! We will randomly choose two winners so the more comments you leave, the more chances you have to win.  Gina K will announce the winners on her blog. 

Be sure to check out StampTV each week Monday and Friday we have challenges posted where you can win MORE free stamps!!

Thanks for stopping by!

What a beautiful card! I love how you used the vine and flowers to make a repeat border and the way you designed the scripture. The colors and design of this card is very eye appealing. I've never really used the kraft cardstock, but this makes me want to try it out.
