Gina K Designs October Release Inspiration Blog Hop - Day 3!!

Hey y'all!  Welcome!

The Cast and Crew for Gina K Designs welcomes you to another fabulous blog hop celebrating the new Home for the Holidays StampTV Kit and a number of gorgeous stamp sets by our illustrator team! We hope Nordic Winter, Noel, Festive Foliage and Compliments of the Season. Beth’s set, “Ian Moose” is the most adorable moose with cute accompanying images and fun sentiments! Claire’s stamp sets are the best in classic and traditional stamps celebrating this holiday season!   








Enjoy the gorgeous inspiration samples from the team and then comment on each blog for your chance to win a $20 Gina K Designs gift certificate! To see who won, check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hop.

Up first today for you I have Beth's new set, Ian Moose!  He is definitely one of the cutest mooses (Meese?) out there!  Here are a couple of cards I made with this set:
I used some water color pencils to make the background.  I had first stamped the tree, then masked it to do the water coloring.  I then doodled lines around my square shape of watercoloring.  Ian is fussy cut and popped up there on the corner! The ornaments hanging from the sentiment were stamped then filled in with those tonic Nuvo crystal drops.  And since I already had these supplies out, I also made another similiar style to this one:
Basically same thing, just added some extra sparkle by using Spectrum Sparkle Markers.

Next are Claire's sets...

First I did this one...was going for a 'crazy quilt' look!  :D
I used Claire's Noel set. The 'stitches are made using the ribbon die template.  I like how they turned out!  :D  




This set uses a bunch of the new sets, but the main image creating a frame of the snowy scene is from Claire's Festive Foliage set.  It is stamped onto acetate with stayzon ink then heat embossed...I love the effect this gives this card, like you are peeping out a window and spy that deer!  :D  Also used on this  card was Theresa's set, Dashing, and Christmas Greenery by Gina.  I used some white acrylic paint, and green too on the trees.  And the rest is done with inks and my fingers, lol!  

Ok, ready for more awesome eye candy?  Just hop onto the links below!

We hope to inspire you with some beautiful card projects as you hop along to each of the designer’s blogs!

Up first today from is  this super fun set by Melanie!  Here is one card I made with this set:

I created a fun little scene like a snow globe!  This set I know just SCREAMS for you to do a snowglobe, lol!  BUT, that's not all you can do with this set, you will see on my fellow DT blogs too!

Next up is Theresa's Dashing set:
And here is one I have made with this set:
 

I love to throw in a color that is not the traditional  red/green/gold colors for Christmas.  And pink is a favorite of mine to use for that!  I heat embossed the poinsettias in white and then colored with copics and then added some sparkle using a Spectrum Noir sparkle marker.  The snowflakes and distressed frame around the main image also has some heat embossing in white too. 

That's all from me for today!  But just follow the links below for some awesome eye candy from my fellow DT!!
