More Gina K Inspiration!


We're sharing cards with three more newly released sets, and I know you're gonna be inspired by all the great designs our GKD design team has come up with!  These girls always amaze me!

My first card uses Theresa's new set, Warm with Love!  I was so excited to see this lovely iris image...growing up, our neighbor (and my friend's mom!) was named Iris, so these flowers always bring back warm, wonderful memories!

Notes:  
Pure Luxury card stock in green applelemon drop, and ivory
Warm with Love
Memento ink
Tim Holtz tea dye distress ink
Copic markers
Nestabilities classic ovals, fancy tags
Cuttlebug embossing folder
Ultrafine black Flower Soft
Corner notch punch
Pearls (colored with a Copic marker)


Here's Melanie's Bring the Bling!  Hopefully this photo shows the "peek through the window" design, which shows only the framed stem and leaves from the layer below when the card is closed.  There's another flower stamped inside visible only when the card is opened.

Notes:
Pure Luxury card stock in lemon droplovely lavender and ivory
GKD designer paper
Bring the Bling
sentiment from Springtime Silhouettes
Nestabilities classic ovals

pearls



My final card is  made with Asela's adorable set, Make a Splash!  I just adore these darling sea creatures, perfect for a fun summer card!  I had so much fun coloring this smiling octopus!

Notes:
Pure Luxury card stock in white and sweet mango
Copic markers
silk ribbon
small metal rimmed tag

Here are the girls sharing cards today:

  6. All of your creations are lovely Deb! I love how the butterfly extends beyond the oval in your iris card, the window layout and bright striped paper and pearls in your second card, and the blue/orange color combination in your octopus card (I have to get that color wheel out - the orange ocean life really POPS against the soft blue ocean background).
