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

Smiley from millan.netSmiley from millan.netSmiley from millan.net


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!!!!!

Very nice cards and I am inspired by them. Love all the pearls on the oval and I agree about having to make a sympathy card when you need it much better to have them on hand

Fabulous cards! You are quite smart to do those sympathy cards in advance and I love your bears together.

Verna Angerhofer said...

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!

lamepaw said...

Wonderful cards! I love the delicate coloring and how you stamped off the edge on the hawthorn card. Those bears are so happy! They don't make the card feel cold at all. Hope you have a happy new year!

mtscrapgal said...

Great cards, Lee. Your Grizzlies look like they are talking to each other. hehe.

Lynn B. said...

A-MA-ZING!!! I love the pink and green color combo and those bears! WOW!!! Great cards, both of them!

KonaRose said...

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

Susan Sieracki said...

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.

Leslie Turner said...

Last but certainly not least on the list of blogs we're hopping! Your cards are so very awesome - both of them! Thanks for sharing your amazing talent! :D

The T-Shirt & Tole Shop said...

FrancineB said...

I love your cards...TFS!

Melanie said...

great cards! Would have never noticed about bears being "off" LO, you don't have to tell those things, hee hee!

Payne Holler Cards said...

gorgeous flowers! and I think ALLLL flowers come in pink dont they ? LOL
your bears are adorable (-:

Pat Jandacek said...

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

Fernanda said...

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!

Neesey said...

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!

Kris said...

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

Dottie Watson said...

Love your beautiful bears. Nice coloring.. I must get with it and learn how to do shading. Gives so much more depth to cards. Thnx for sharing. Hugz, Dottie

Judy I said...

Both cards are wonderful, but I really like your coloring on the Missouri Hawthorn and all the elements. It makes a lovely sympathy card.

naneruth said...

Great cards! Love those bears.

Carol E said...

Your cards are amazing, thank you so much for sharing them.

Debbie Rogers said...

Love the designs of both cards Lee! Your pink "Sorrow" card will surely make anyone feel better soon!

Sonia said...

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!

Bobbi's Paper Trail said...

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

Oneofakind said...

I love all the layers and detail on your cards. Great inspiration.

Absolutely love how you layered the bears. I do get tired of my usual centering of images. I'm going to have to try this soon!

Pati said...
