Gina K. Designs Blog Hop: Main Squeeze

I’m so excited for today’s blog post! There’s lemons! For some reason, lemons are my new favorite thing. And yellow.

I’m just so in love with this set by Hannah! There are just so many fruits in here! I ran out of time to make a card with the kiwi and watermelon sadly. But it’s coming. Because I stamped them and they look fab.

And here’s a card with the glorious lemons. This was tricky, but I had a lot of fun making it. Press ‘n Seal was involved. Thank you, Jennifer McGuire’s husband.

I paired Melanie’s pallets with these strawberries to make a crate full of them! I love that diagonal stripe stencil in the background (from the kit!)

Little ink blending there on the strawberry. Innocent Pink, Red Velvet, and Sweet Corn created that.

This card is just a twin of he strawberry card, but with oranges. I used Tangerine Twist and Sweet Mango.

And of course you remember this one from yesterday. 😉

This kit is gorgeous! You get so much stuff in here.

These flowers are the cutest! I used a little Sea Glass blending to give it some pop.

Here’s the striped stencil again. I’ve been wanting a stripe stencil forever! Yay!

This card was so hard to photograph because it is very tall folks. I love the look of tall cards, and thought this would be perfect with Alicia’s flowers. I watercolored this jar from Lisa’s Set, Hello Beautiful.

And that’s the release! So many beautiful things. Go check it out on Gina’s site, and comment here for a chance to win a $50 gift card to Gina’s store!

Next on the hop is Cat!

Thanks for stopping by,

Emily ❤️
