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:


Thanks so very much for letting me share my creations with you today, and everyday really!  I do so enjoy doing it!  Remember, comment as much as you can!  If ya win, you could get this set!! :D  just in time for all those Christmas cards!

Love the cards! I am not as fond as snow as when I was younger. I hate ice, though, so I will take the snow. Love the sky color you created above your tree line.

Love that you used wrapping paper - my daughter and I just used wrapping paper yesterday as the backing in a frame because we couldn't find just the right cardstock look that we wanted. Looking at things in different ways is truly creative.

Wonderful cards from this beautiful stamp set. Think this set definitely needs to come live with me.

Rose Mary Smalley said...

Very pretty....and I too only get snow once in a blue moon...and I do enjoy it then....even when we lose power and have to fire up the wood stove....thank goodness we have that....we use a camp stove to cook....and I put the tea kettle on the wood stove top to heat for coffee or tea.....I am just a Camper at heart...LOL....I just prefer not to live in an area where it is cold all of the time in the winter...too much arthritis..
Ok...more info than you needed....thank you for submitting this nice card....hugs
