Introducing my NEW stamp set release YOUR WINGS

I’m so excited about this new set! Butterflies and flowers are kind of my thing. Tee hee! And I really wanted to share something a bit different this release that coordinates with all the other releases in my collection . Often butterflies are symbolic to many as a sign of transformation, beauty, light, healing. I have my own personal healing story to that kind of set me on a course of letting these beautiful flutters into my life. I’m calling this a healing set because when I created it and began creating with it, I felt enJOYment and lighter. It’s versatile and meets you where you wish to be when you sit down to create.

Introduction Video for YOUR WINGS

How About Some Card Inspiration, Shall We?

You Wings Card Designs showcasing new Gina K Designs Your Wings Set

I’ve separated the wings on the butterfly so you can create off the edge cards with a hint of whimsy!

There are bits of floral and greenery in the set to adorn the butterfly AND you can create a dragonfly too! The leaves and greenery are so much fun to use in the wreath builder too.

The set fits proportionally with my other stamp sets. Doesn’t she look pretty nested on the wood slice from the Something Good stamp set?  You can use the butterfly stamp as a guide to paper piece the wing and body elements for a more 3D look.

She’s definitely nature-inspired the leaves, greenery, and florals fit all around her wings.

You can stamp the wings together and cut it out for a large die-cut like a butterfly.  Simply add the stamped bits to create a simple card with a lot of detail in the wings.

Isn’t she lovely watercolored?

I was inspired to create this large butterfly so you could spread your wings a bit too. This 6×6 card on watercolor was created by stamping the butterfly wings together in amalgam (I like Barely There for this kind of watercoloring) and painting the wings. I added the new Funky Flourish stencil to the bottom left around the sentiment. The butterflies are big, so you can work with them beyond the traditional A2 Sized card.

Introducing Perfect Palettes by Melanie Muenchinger

Melanie’s new set is just so stinkin’ fun. There are bits and baubles and all kinds of amazingly inspired sentiments that make this set just so much fun to play with. She had me at palettes. It’s got a shabby chic vibe with a touch of whimsy and I really enjoyed creating these two fun cards with it. I love that the palettes can have a subtle background like image on kraft and the hand-lettered sentiments are just easy to build different combinations.

Introducing Beautiful Balloons by Beth Silaika

Beth is a master at creating bold, graphic images that are so fun to play with. I love her new Beautiful Balloons set and there’s a balloon die available to help make fussy cutting, not a thing! Tee hee. I paired her fun set with the new diagonal lines stencil in this month’s Pop Art Flowers Card Kit and the new ELECTROPOP ink.

New ELECTROPOP Ink

Have you seen the new ELECTRO POP Neon Ink? Hello, beautiful color! This new line of ink by Rina K is so fun to work with. The colors are vibrant and they GLOW. I used several of the colors on the cards in this post and MORE to come on tomorrow’s hop. This pop art style butterfly card was created with the neon pin and potent purple with a touch of the HELLO YELLOW. It’s funky, and fun!

New Incentive Set Layered Eucalyptus

I had a lot of fun combining colors and layers with this new incentive set. It speaks to me. Tee hee! The sentiments in the set are versatile and you will grab them over and over again. I’ve used them in several projects on this hop!

This set will be automatically added to your order of $75 or more. How cool is that!
