Gina K Design September Release Inspiration Blog Hop, Day 2!!

Hey ya'll!! Welcome back to day two of our inspiration hops! And again today, we have two more stamp sets to show case for you! Up first is Theresa Momber's newest set, Celebrate the Season ....oh the fun possibilities with this one! Here is what I did today:




I showed a halloween one I did at the party Tuesday night, so decided to do a Christmas one for today. I gave it a sorta rustic look by sponging all of the edges on this too. Used some scrabble tiles that I just got off of Ebay (yes, there will be more cards with this on them, lol!)..love thelook it gave the card too!

Up next is Tami Mayberry's newest set, Home Is...this is a super fun set! This set is one that can be colored, or paper pieced easily! Here is what I did for today:



I made a YoYo tree! On the branches I just adhered some premade yoyos I had purchased at Hobby Lobby...this was really a super quick card! I didn't put a sentiment on the outside of it, I will add one to the inside when I decide where it is going, lol!

Ready for more awesome inspiration? Here ya go! Be sure and visit each of the DT and leave a comment, we will be picking two winners from all the comments to win one of these stamp sets!
