Gina K Designs October Release Inspiration Blog Hop - Day1!

Hey Y'all!  glad you stopped by!

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 to inspire you with some beautiful card projects as you hop along to each of the designer’s blogs! Today, we are featuring a  stamp set from the kit and the new ‘Tis the Sea-Sun stamp set.

“It’s Beginning to Look a lot like Christmas” around Gina K Designs! Gina K and the illustrator team have been extremely busy preparing the most fun stamp sets with a variety of images and sentiments to make so many incredible cards and holiday projects!

 Tis the Sea-Sun! stamp set and

 STV kit LOADED with goodies...Plus all you see here! Home for the Holidays!  Oh the fun you can have with this set! :D

Here are my cards using these sets:

First up is one using one of the kit stamp sets:

This set also uses the new incentive stamp (Merry Christmas).  I used the musical bg stamp to create my background!  :D  The trees were created by using some banner dies and star punch.  I created the background by heat embossing the music stamp in white and then swished over it with a glitter pen in the turquiose color for some sparkle.  The Merry Christmas is heat embossed in gold on vellum.

I also made this card:

I had to let the little fairy flutter around a bit!  :D   She is sprinkling Christmas wishes around for all!  :D  She's my little peppermint fairy!    I colored her with copic markers and she also had some glitter pen swished on her, mainly her wings.  I so love the designer paper in this set too!  I guess i'm getting better...I dont like freak out when I would try to use designer paper like I used to, lol!

Up next is the oh so adorable little penguin set, 'Tis The Sea-Sun'.




Arent they too cute?!  This card is a backward easel card.  It will prop up and look awesome on some one's mantel!  :D  This is how it looks laying flat and then:

...this is how it looks as the easel.  Fun set for sure!

Ok, ready for some awesome eye candy from my fellow DT?  Here ya go!
