Good morning! The Design Team for Gina K. Designs welcomes you to another fabulous Inspiration Blog Hop! Gina and the Design Team will inspire you with many beautiful ideas, and as you hop through their blogs, make sure to leave a comment on each of them because a few random comments will be chosen and those stampers will each win a grab bag of Gina K. Designs products! To see the full list of winners, check the Big News forum at Stamp TV a couple of days after the hops.
This get well card with Lots of Letters (available in clear or red rubber) was so fun to make! My letter stamps were all laying in a jumble on my storage board sheet after making so many different words for other designs, so I smacked my Versamark pad on top of the letters and then pressed a piece of Sweet Corn CS on top and embossed with white EP to create this alphabet soup! Die cut with a circle.
"Soup bowl" frames are stamped in Memento Cantaloupe ink and then I stamped the individual letters at angles to look like they are floating around to spell the sentiment. Card uses Pure Luxury Sweet Corn, Black Onyx, Kraft, and White, and the spoon image is from Mugs and Kisses, stamped in Tuxedo Black on Moonlit Fog CS.
Last I added some black gel pen faux stitching around the edges and folded up a little scrap or Merry Little Christmas DP with a little strip on black CS as a holder and adhered with a pop dot. I created this template for the card for the bowl cut out and windows for the letters using our Studio cut files Lots of Letters Circles (for the words) and Lots of Letters Rounded Squares for the rounded mat, sized for A2 cards. (you can see the one I made for the template below in this post.)

Be sure to watch Gina's video for how easy it is to customize your mats for these letter and image stamps in just the length you need for the number of letters in your word by copying and pasting the different options available in the Lots of Letters cut files, in just the orientation you want them!
Also, please help me welcome my special guest for Lots of Letters this month, Beate Johns! Can't wait for you to see what adorable project she has cooked up with these stamps!
It was super fun getting to "knit" my own pattern for once! :)
I stamped the border in Memento Rhubarb Stalk on Soft Sand Pure Luxury CS. Stamp mitten outlines and cuffs in Memento Rhubarb Stalk on White Pure Luxury. Then stamp the knit border across both and cut. TIP: Take care to make the pattern straight and even across both (I just lined up the diamond in between the two thumbs, so they look like a matched set.)
Cut them out and adhere with pop dots. I stamped a piece of white twill with Tami Mayberry's Perfect Plaids in Love Letter, love the plaid and knit patterns together on one card. Add a bit of red bakers twine to tie on the mittens. Greeting is stamped in Rhubarb Stalk and Love Letter. Base is Pure Luxury Innocent Pink. Pierce holes across the top and bottom of the white layer with the Scor-Bug Embosser and Scor-Buddy.
So snuggly! :)
