{Gina K Designs} Inspiration Hop - Winter Cheer Stamp TV Kit


The Cast and Crew of Gina K Designs welcome you to another fabulous Inspiration Blog Hop! Gina and the Cast and Crew will inspire you with many beautiful ideas! As you hop through the blogs, make sure to leave a comment on each of them because we will be choosing ONE winner for a wonderful Grab Bag of fabulous Gina K goodies.  To see the winner announcement, check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hops.

Today we get to showcase my FAVORITE part of the new release... the new Stamp TV Kit!!!



For my card today I stamped the sweet little skating fox on some heavy baseweight white cardstock and colored him with Spectrum Noir markers.  I used some Spellbinders Large Circle, Petite Scalloped Circle and Regular Scalloped Circle dies to make mats from White and Red Hot Cardstock.  I stamped a pretty border from last year's Season's Greetings Stamp TV Kit and cut it out to lay alongside a strip of Winter Cheer patterned paper from the kit.  I popped up my focal image, stamped a greeting, and added a jingle bell to my fox's collar with a glue dot as an extra treat.

Be sure you visit all the Illustrators and Design Team for more inspiration using the kit!  Here's the list!!




Thanks for stopping by today!

Today we are featuring the Peace and Joy set by Theresa Momber.  Haven't you seen some GORGEOUS cards on the hop already??  This set is just beautiful, and so fun to color!

Here's my card with the cardinal...


and a close up of the coloring....


I colored my bird with Spectrum Noir markers, then cut it out using a Square die.  I handpierced the edges after I sponged it.  I used liquid pearls to add some snow and attached the focal image and sentiment flag to my background with pop dots.  The bg paper is Kaisercraft Mistletoe, and the gorgeous red ribbon is from the new Winter Cheer Stamp TV kit.

Here's another card made with this set, if you missed the release party!

{TCP Tuesday 277} Nature's Hello


TCP Tuesday was an inspiration challenge this time around, and since I'm not big on Halloween, I took the colors from the photo and made a sweet penguin card instead. : )  I used stamps from both Strange and Wonderful and Nature's Hello.

Hi everyone! 

I have a card to share today with Melanie's new Fabulous Holiday Fillers set.  It can be used with her super popular Fabulous Frame set to dress it up for all the holidays, but today I used some of the parts by themselves to create a clean and simple card that is perfect for Valentine's Day or an anniversary.


I stamped the little hearts with Versamark ink onto a small square of heavy Pure Luxury White cardstock and embossed them with clear embossing powder.  Then I sponged over the hearts with Passionate Pink and Wild Lilac inks.  I wrapped my focal image with some gold cord before I popped it up on the front of my card base.  Then I stamped my greeting in Black Onyx ink.  A simple card that makes a big statement! : )

{LOTV} New Stamps


Oh, look!  It's Christmas!! : )

I received a few sweet Lili of the Valley stamps in the mail late last week and I was thrilled to be able to color one up for the "Anything Goes" challenge on their blog and SplitCoast.  I colored James Bear (he's retired, sorry!) with my Spectrum Noir markers and used some Kaisercraft Mistletoe paper as the background. 

Thanks for stopping by!
