Lotsa Flowers-Gina K Preview Day 3

Hi! Today is Day Three of the Gina K Designs Previews!!! Hope you have liked all the previews so far. Here are some more!!!

First up--I created this card with the newest set from Theresa called Autumn Beauty:Wait until you see all the exquisitly drawn images in this set---they are so pretty and perfect for fall. But today...I wanted to create a happy "hi" card featuring the mailbox image.

The main image is colored with Copics and I added a Sakura Stardust pen to add shimmer to the flowers.

Materials used: Stamps-Autumn Beauty (Gina K Designs); Memento black ink; Copic markers; alpha stickers; Sakura Stardust pen; Designer paper-Night Light-Jack (October Afternoon); cardstock-white (Gina K Designs), turqoise (Stampin up!); Spellbinders dies; button (SU!); ribbon (SU!); twine (Gina K Designs).

Next, I created this card with the new sentiment set from Nina called Elegant Verses. Nina released the GORGEOUS Elegant Post set last month (while I was on vacation) so I was only too happy to ink them up together. The verses work perfectly with her Post set but also will complement many other stamps you already own.
First, I inked up the post in the Elegant Post set, but instead of stamping it the way it was designed....I rotated the post horizontal so that I could create a long hanging bar for the flower basket.
The flowers are colored with Copics. I added some tiny black crystals for the basket holder and a tiny little gingham bow to complete the panel.
I used the Flowers sentiment from the Elegant Verses set and highlighted a part of it in blue. The verse reads "Flowers seem intended for the solace of ordinary humanity." Love that!
I used Pure Luxury white cardstock and Black onyx pure luxury cardstock on this card.
Materials used: Stamps-Elegant Verses, Elegant Post (Gina K Designs); Memento black ink; Copic markers; Cardstock-white, black onyx (Gina K Designs); turquoise (SU!); Copic markers; Martha Stewart lace punch; Crystal Imaginisce rubons & Rhinestones-Always & Forever; Mark Richards crystal stickers.
