Gina K Design September Release Inspiration Blog Hop, Day 3!!

Hey ya'll! And welcome back to our final day of inspiration hops for this release. Although, most of us will still have some other goodies to show you until our next release, lol! Today, we once again have two stamp sets to showcase for you. Up first is the new One Free With Three called Cool Beans ...this set is gonna hit the spot with LOTS of coffee lovers! If you don't love coffee, bet you know somebody who does! Here is what I did for today:




I made a CAS card, and in fact, it uses the CAS challenge from SCS this week, a sketch one. I love making my own dp, and this is what I did with this. I used the coffee plant image to make the DP you see, love how it turned out!

Up next is a new one illustrated by Gina called My True Love Gave To Me...Yep! it's getting that time! Time for us to be thinking about Christmas cards and goodies! I decided to make a kleenex box cover:




And here are all four sides:




I kept it whimsical and rustic, with the pompoms and the distressing of the edges. I just used some copics to color the images with, except for the three french hens, I wanted them to be more white, so I paper pieced them with white cardstock...I used Ivory cardstock for the base so this made them pop out more I think. I am also gonna enter this into the challenge over on the Scor-Pal Blog!!

Ok, ready for more awesome eye candy!? Here are the links to my fellow rocking DT! And as always, be sure and leave a comment, you just might when a stamp set of your choice if you have already ordered these sets! Two will be chosen to win from today's comments also!

What a cool application for those Christmas stamps cat! Love that festive pom pom border trim too. And you fooled me with your first card, I didn't even realize that was the coffee set at first! Way to think 'outside of the box' of the box on this one (and 'on' the box in your second project, LOL!)
