Gina K. Designs and Therm O Web Foil-Mates™ New Winter Release 2018!

Hey y'all!  Glad you stopping by today!  Got some fun and awesome goodies to share with you today!

Just look at all of these goodies!!

Stamps and tape and dies, OH MY!  So loving this winter release!  Now we are able to make allll things sparkly and good through the winter!  :D

And we will be giving away one $50 gift certificate for this one day hop so be sure and comment on each blog...that makes your chances better at winning!  Winner will be announced probably on Friday of this week too!

Ok!  First up is the Holly Jolly set of goodies!  Stamps, stamp n foil sheets, and dies!
Here are a few of my cards I have made using this set:

For this card i used some of the striped toner sheets from Therm o Web also.  I used the gold sequin foiling on the poinsettias and decided to just add some sparkle with a glitter pen, leaving them white.  I added seed beeds to the middle of the flowers.  The sentiment is heat embossed with red glitter embossing powders.  Here is an upclose photo, trying to capture the sparkle!
and another card using this set:
For this card I used the ornament stamp and the stars are embossed with gold foil.  I distressed this one a bit, going for a 'rustic' look.  I also heat embossed the 'merry' with gold.  The Christmas is a die cut and the gold behind it is also.

Ok next up is the Baby It's Cold Outside set of goodies:
I really have had a fun with this set!  Ill admit, i always have a hard time lining stuff up for two-step stamping!  So i just stamped without doing that at first!  (then my awesome fellow DT helped out!!)  Here is what I have to show you today:
I decided to make a gift bag!  I stamped all over the brown paper sack, ended up cutting it down and then used a tag (from a previous GKD and TOW collab!) and did a bit of masking on the tag and foiled the big snowflake in silver  How cute is this sack?  I LIKE it...and thats saying alot, haha!  Here is a close up:
Ok, now I have one more to show you today:

I decided to do some beading on that big snowflake!  It turned out awesome and I do believe ill make some ornaments out of this this year, but do two and put together, kwim?  I also created the background on the blue by stamping with the same color of ink as the cardstock (powder blue) and white and versamark ink also.    This is Billy's pick!

Ohhh!!  I almost forgot to tell you about that awesome tape!  LOVE it!  Just like Gina K.'s glue, it is awesome to work with!  I love that you just a bit of play time to move if you get it crooked (yes i do)!  But then its STUCK!  

Ok, ready for more awesome inspiration?   I know they are gonna make me go WOW a bunch of times!  Here ya go, follow the links below to my fellow DT!

Ok!  Thats all for today!  I plan on posting some clay pendants I made also here in the next few days, if i remember, haha!  But I am glad you stopped by!  YOU truly make this fun!!

Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember collaboration with Gina K. Designs 2018

Hey y'all!!  so glad you hopped by!  Welcome to our little blog hop showcasing a  Gina K. Designs exclusive stamp set with Simon Says Stamp!

All of us designers here with Gina K. Designs are thrilled to be invited back to do a fun little blog hop introducing the exclusive stamp set by Gina K. called Joy of the Season.

AND dont forget the dies that match!
How fun do these Look!?!  I can confirm, THEY ARE!  :D  Now, I do want to get in right here that we will be giving away a $50 gift certificate to Simon Says Stamp to a lucky soul who comments!  More blogs you comment on, more chances to win!  Ok, now let me show you what I have created with this set for today:

For this card I used the tree line images to make my little snow scene.  I love the sentiment on this, because being from East Texas, we dont get a whole lot of snow (ice, yes!) so when we do, its just gorgeous to me!  Ok, ok, I hear the northern folks laughing at me, saying come on up here and see how long you think its gorgeous, hahaha!  Im telling you, I WANT to, buy B (the hubby) dont! To I first stamped the trees and heat embossed in black, then I created the background with distress oxide inks and water and white paint flicked on for the 'snow'  I used dies to cut the snow banks and the little glittered deer was in a package of them at Hobby Lobby, with the little miniature tree stuff.  I popped it up to give it some dimension to it. Then tied the gold cording and was done!

And one more for today:

For this card, used some wrapping paper from last year that I had left over.  I then stamped and heat embossed the ornament images directly onto the paper, then used distress ink around the ornaments to 'age' the paper some.  I also heat embossed the reindeer image in gold and used some pop dots to pop it up some.  The gold star/twine is wrapped around a couple of times to act as a bow.  I little trick I do with this stuff, since it likes to tear holes in papers...I used packing tape to attach to the back.  I place it how i want on the front, like this one, kinda overlapping, and then the wire is bent over the edge, then I add the packing tape and it hold it very good!

Ok, that's all from me, hope you have been inspired just a bit by me!  If not, I bet you will be with  my fellow Design Team!  Here are the links below:
