Gina K. Designs Inspiration Hop......Stately Flowers 2 and Mountain Wilderness!!!!

Well what a fabulous Release Party last night!!!!  Now to hop, hop, hop with some fun samples to get your mojo flowin'!!!!


First up is Melanie's newest Stately Flowers 2...........


I did look up Hawthorn flowers and found they do come in pink!!!  Not that it would stop me from coloring ANYTHING pink!  LOL   I decided to make a feminine sympathy card.....to have on hand.  Sympathy cards are so very difficult for me to make....especially on the spot.  So I figured I could make some in advance when I'm not focused on the sad event that needs one. I love the Beaded Oval Nesties.  I just went with a very floral and feminine color combo, Pure Luxury Grass Green, White and Bubblegum Pink and used ribbon and flowers and pearls.....I hope someone can smile thru tears knowing that they are loved.

Now for the uber cool Theresa and her Mountain Wilderness......oh yes....perfect for my mountain!!!



Now I just had to color these as Grizzly Bears.....(our family's e-mail addy and username has been Grizzlys for years and years!!!).  And they are at home in the snow.....just like me!!!  I did stamp them a bit off so there's a little "hole" in my snowy scene! LOL  I used Pure Luxury White and Smoky Slate for a wintry combination.  Also the Fleur de Lis Squares for a fun background accent.


Now you'll want to hop and see all the fabulous Inspiration the Design Team has in store!!  And don't forget to leave comments along the way!!!  2 commenters will be chosen randomly to win a Grab Bag of fabulous Gina K. stamps!!!!!

  24. Lee, your cards are awesome. I am so delighted to see that new scene card. Although I don't live in the mountains I have many friends who do and one particular man is a grizzly lover and I know I will be surprising him with a card using that set one of these days. Thanks for all the inspiration!

  44. Hi, Lee! They saved the BEST for last!! I am just now getting here, dragging my no longer hopping body, (heavy breathing). I LOVE YOUR CARDS! The first one, yes, it's pink and has some victorian-y kind of feeling for me, which I LOVE. And you bunch of grizzlies on a mountain, this second card was made just for you all!!!! I love it. We are big mountain fans, too (McKinley, Rainier, Hood, Broken Top, & now Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa). Sending you very big hugs, girlfriend!!!! Rosy

  45. Oh wow...both of your cards are wonderful...but honest to God, I absolutely love the bears. The scene you put together on this card is just amazing. And I can't believe that's the fleur de lis diecut...it goes so well with the card.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  54. Beautiful cards, Lee! Happy new Year to you and your family.

  55. Well!!!!! Now I know I really have to buy the wilderness set. Hopping through I found mostly masculine cards made with it-which made me want to buy it-but now that I see your card and that the set can be used for anyone-I MUST get it! The bow just gives the feminine touch to what usually would be considered a masculine stamp set. Thanks so much for the inspiration!

    ReplyDelete
  56. The off set spellbinder bear card is precious. I was just telling a friend we should get together and make some sympathy cards. Yours is just breathtakingly beautiful. Thanks for the inspiration. These sets are a must!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Too bad we do need sympathy cards around but yours will definitely cheer the recipient! Great wilderness card too! TFS!

  62. I love your sympathy card, it feels so full of love, kind of vintage/girlie- I recently discovered that side of me- who knew I could be the pink girlie type? I also love how you used the panel behind your grizzlies to give the feel of a large snowflake-what great cards!

    ReplyDelete
  63. These are really nice cards! I'm a floral/nature girl, so both of thee stamp sets would be divine on my shelf! TFS !
