I'm so proud to be a Gina K Designs Guest Designer for the month of February! What an amazing opportunity to be part of the February Release Blog Hop along with Gina'a awesome Design Team! Today we are showcasing Signs of Spring, illustrated by Theresa Momber, and Folk Filigree, illustrated by Becky Oehlers! These sets are totally amazing! Gina generously provided us with all of the stamp sets in this February release, and I have thoroughly enjoyed playing with all of them!

The first project I'd like to share is my "Feel Better Soon" card created with the Signs of Spring stamp set.


This is a kinetic spinner from one of my Technique Junkies CDs. This is the first one I've ever made and I'm very pleased with how it turned out. I'm posting the overhead view of it first so you'll get an idea of what it looks like; otherwise, you'll wonder what the heck you're looking at! ;)


I used two papers from the GKD Grateful Heart 6x6 patterned paper pack for the card base.


I stamped the leaves in Memento Bamboo Leaves on one side of the spinner and in Rhubarb Stalk on the other side to compliment the two patterned papers I used. The sentiment is the same on both sides. I stamped, colored and fussy cut a butterfly for each side of the spinner as well. Both flutterbys have Stardust pen on them for a little shimmer but you can only see it in the photo above.

The second project I'd like to share is my "Folk Like You Make Me Happy" note card created with the Folk Filigree stamp set.


I used the sentiment as the focal image on this which I think turned out nice. I used a green and ivory color combo with punched lace and a big bow. ;) I love my bows! And can you tell green is my favorite color?!


I left the inside blank since this is a note card, but did decorate the lower left corner with a cluster of tiny sprigs.
