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.
First up we have the new StampTV Kit, which comes with both of these awesome holiday sets, Merry Little Christmas and City of David!
I chose to work with City of David today. This is a simple two layer card! Stamp the greeting, image and the star above in Memento Tuxedo Black on Pure Luxury White. Next I cut a piece of scratch paper in a tall triangle long enough to cover my card.
I put the tip under star, then started sponging Memento Sweet Plum over both sides of the mask. The I moved a bit and sponged on some Memento Paris Dusk, concentrating ink on the edges of mat, going off the sides. Repeat on the other side. Remove the mask. Add some bling!
The masking really spotlights your sentiment. I added white dots randomly with a marker for stars. Cardbase is Pure Luxury In the Navy.
Next we have this month's Free with Three set Holiday Tags. Very useful little set!!
I went very literal this month and used them as ...yep..tags. :) Cardstock is Pure Luxury Ocean Mist, Grass Green, Turquoise Sea, and White. I also stamped the chevron from Pretty Patterns in Memento Love Letter and Bamboo Stalk to tie the separate tags together in the design. I love how those look nested together like that, like the pattern on a Christmas-y scarf or socks! Piercing with the Scor-Bug around the edges of the mat "anchors" the chevron.
Ciircle punches are 1", 1 1/4" and 1 3/8",
And an even simpler one on Pure Luxury Red Hot. Don'tcha love when your twine holds those bends and seems to defy gravity sometimes? hee!)
( PS I prefer spearmints to peppermints! num num num!)
Please see the rest of our team for more inspiration using these fabulous sets! Don't forget to comment to increase your chances of winning a grab bag!
