{Gina K Designs} Inspiration Blog Hop - Peace and Joy


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 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!
