GinaK Designs Feb 2010 Previews, Day 2

I am delighted to show you two cards today featuring Melanie's newest, Pressed Flowers, and Rupa's adorable Oh Baby! sets.

I was so excited when I saw Pressed Flowers for the first time because Melanie's A Year of Flowers is probably my favorite of all her sets. I love coloring the images in A Year of Flowers and it's a great go-to set for all occasions. Pressed Flowers are silhouette of the same images that don't require coloring. So when pressed (no pun intended :-)) for time, I can whip up elegant and beautiful cards quickly. This card took no more than 15 minutes to make. The sentiment is from my new set previewing on Wednesday night.

My next card uses Rupa's newest baby set, Oh Baby! And oh baby, let me tell you, it's just adorable. I've been wanting a set like this for a loooong time. In my ever growing collection of stamps, if you can believe it, I don't have a baby set (except a very old Stampin' Up set that's foam mounted - do you remember those?). And Oh Baby! has so many darling images that are fun to color and paper piece.

I did the tole technique on the teddy bear in this set, using Oct Afternoon Farm Fresh. The card base is Sweet Corn. The green polka dot patterned paper is from my new digipapers, Swing Into Spring.

Here's the close up of the layered bear. You can click on the photo to get a bigger view.
As I mentioned above, the Pressed Flowers stamp set was designed to be a perfect companion to Melanie's A Year of Flowers set! It is also a perfect stand alone set as each bold stamp image lends itself to many techniques as you will see on each designer's blogs tonight!

Start with the Illustrator's blog Melanie Muenchinger and then visit these designer's blogs for even more samples with this stamp set and Rupa Shevde's O Baby Stamp set as well!
