Inspiration Hop, Day 2: Wishing You Joy StampTV Kit


Good morning, I hope you had a terrific weekend! Today we are sharing Gina's newest StampTV Kit: "Wishing You Joy". When I first saw this set, I really connected with this chubby little penguin and snowman, and noticed it would be fun/silly to prop them both up on this little pair of stockings, also in the set, perfectly sized!

I stamped the stocking pairs side by side and then cut out and popped up the figures to go above them with foam dots. Images are colored with Copics and added green highlights with a Sakura glitter pen. Card uses Gina K Pure Luxury Red Hot, Ocean Mist, and White.

And now more inspiration from our fabulous Gina K Designs team! Be sure to leave comments all along the hop, we will be choosing two winners from all the comments who will each win a fabulous Gina K. Designs grab bag filled with a least a dozen individual pre-cut images, so the more comments you leave, the greater your chances of winning!!Enjoy hopping, thank you for visiting me today!
