Here are the first two stamp sets and dies the design team will be featuring today!







Here are my cards for your inspiration.

My first card I created is from the Embroidered Flowers illustrated by Melanie Muenchinger.  My card is an A2 card using Gina K. Designs Kraft and Plum Punch cardstock.  I stamped the flower image with Gina K. Designs Plum Punch ink, the leaves and stem I stamped in Gina K. Designs Grass Green ink.


This card measures 4 1/4 x 4 1/4, I stamped the heart images from the Happy Hearts illustrated by Beth Silaika.  I used Gina K. Designs black onyx ink and red velvet to stamp the hearts.


I hope you have been inspired! Please stop over to Facebook page for more inspiration! Come back tomorrow for Day 2 for the Gina K. Designs January 2020 Illustrator blog hop. Don't forget your NEXT stop will be Hannah Drapinski. If you get lost or looking for the full hop list you can find it over on the Gina K. Designs blog.

  6. I love the use of kraft paper with the plum colour. It's an elegant way to showcase the lovely embroidered flower. The sentiment strip across the hearts for your second card is great - I often have a hard time using smaller sentiments on cards without them seeming too small and out of balance with the rest of the card design. This is great inspiration - thank you!
