Gina K Designs October 2017 Release Inspiration Blog Hop -- Day 1!!

Hey Y'all!!  Welcome to our Inspiration Blog Hop for our newest Gina K Designs release!  So thrilled you stopped by!  This is our holiday release and its packed full of awesomeness!  It's always my favorite release of the year!

Today we will be featuring Melanie's and Theresa's newest sets!  First up I have Melanie's, which is called Fabulous Holiday Labels.  This set can be combined with several of Melanie's sets which makes the possibilities endless!



and the Die set that matches:

My first card I showed at the release party.  I used the die set and also used Holiday Frame Fillers.  AND I had to use some of the Fancy Foil Mates Holiday collections!



and then, I used the cut out label part for this card:

I stamped some of the images on the cut out and then heat embossed in a sparkly red and white glitter, reminds me of candy canes!  :D  The little tree is actually a button/charm I had in my stash.

======================================================================

Next up is Theresa's new set, Peaceful Holidays


I showed this card at the release too.


I did a bit of watercoloring on the dove and around it, quick and easy and I added some sparkle too with a clear glitter pen.  The edge with the string tied is metallic cardstock that I pulled out of my stash!  :D

And then I decided  I wanted to do a combo card of these two sets.  This is what I did for that:

I used the image with the snowflakes from melanie's set to make my 'Snow banks'  and then stamped the trees and deer from Theresa's set.  It also has snow in sparkly goodness that you cant see, just little dots I made here and there.  I added a pop of color with the red ribbon to finish it off!  :D  

Ok, that's all from me for today!  Ready for more inspiration from the rest of the team?  AND don't forget to leave a comment on each blog for your chance to win a $50 Gift Certificate!!  You can check to see who won a few days after the blog hops by going to the Big News Forum
